Sarah | 198 comments My partner is Dita and I am choosing:

Circe by Madeline Miller because it was a 4 star read for me. I thought it was really well written with an interesting premise.

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1) by Leigh Bardugo because I gave it 5 stars for being a fun, engaging read.

Furthermore (Furthermore, #1) by Tahereh Mafi because the cover is cool. This was another 4 star read for me and I found it reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland.

Hope you find one you like!

Cynthia | 6047 comments I don't think this was my month lol. I really wanted to read all three picks but only got around to The Female of the Species. I'm halfway through the book now and I love it. I'll update with my final review later but I just wanted to give an update before June ends :)
