May 2021 Wrap Up/ June 2021 TBR

Happy June 1st. I hope y’all had an awesome Memorial Day Weekend. We spent a lot of time with family and it was great! Since we were so busy yesterday I didn’t get to post my May wrap up. I figured since my June TBR is short that I would just combine them. Since I read several books in May, I’m not going to include each synopsis. I will link them so if you want to know more click on the picture!

June TBR

The Way of Kings

The Way of Kings|Brandon Sanderson


Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter.

It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor that transform ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Men trade kingdoms for Shardblades. Wars were fought for them, and won by them.

One such war rages on a ruined landscape called the Shattered Plains. There, Kaladin, who traded his medical apprenticeship for a spear to protect his little brother, has been reduced to slavery. In a war that makes no sense, where ten armies fight separately against a single foe, he struggles to save his men and to fathom the leaders who consider them expendable.

Brightlord Dalinar Kholin commands one of those other armies. Like his brother, the late king, he is fascinated by an ancient text called The Way of Kings. Troubled by over-powering visions of ancient times and the Knights Radiant, he has begun to doubt his own sanity.

Across the ocean, an untried young woman named Shallan seeks to train under an eminent scholar and notorious heretic, Dalinar’s niece, Jasnah. Though she genuinely loves learning, Shallan’s motives are less than pure. As she plans a daring theft, her research for Jasnah hints at secrets of the Knights Radiant and the true cause of the war.

I think it’s time to return to the world of epic fantasy. I have been wanting to return to an all encompassing world, and I’ve heard so many great things about The Stormlight Archives. It’s going to take me a while to read this, so I’m not planning much for this month.


The Coca-cola Trail

June’s Uncorked Librarian reading challenge prompt is to read a book with a beverage in the title. I think it’s time to pull The Coca-Cola Trail off the shelf. I bought this at a gift shop on our honeymoon two years ago and I still haven’t picked it up. But I think it’s time.

So that’s what I’m reading this month. What do you have on your tbr?
