Unwrapping My TBR: June 2018

Hi, and thanks for stopping by.

Today's post is my monthly unwrapping of my TBR!! If you want to read about this TBR method from the start, click here. This month, as ever, my wonderful big sister chose six books and unwrapped them for me - I'm pretty happy with the selection, particularly because there's a real mixture of lengths & genres.

So here they are all wrapped up...

And here's the unwrap result...

Siobhan Vivian’s The Last Boy and Girl in the World

What if your town was sliding underwater and everyone was ordered to pack up and leave? How would you and your friends spend your last days together?
While the adults plan for the future, box up their possessions, and find new places to live, Keeley Hewitt and her friends decide to go out with a bang. There are parties in abandoned houses. Canoe races down Main Street. The goal is to make the most of every minute they still have together.
And for Keeley, that means taking one last shot at the boy she’s loved forever.

Cat Clarke’s Entangled

Seventeen-year-old Grace wakes up in a white room, with table, pens and paper - and no clue how she got there. 
As Grace starts writing, pouring her tangled life onto the page, she is forced to remember everything she's tried to forget: falling hopelessly in love with Nat, and the unravelling of her friendship with her best mate Sal. But there's something missing. As hard as she's trying to remember, is there something she just can't see?
Grace must face the most important question of all.
Why is she here?

Gary. D. Schmidt’s Orbiting Jupiter

When Jack meets his new foster brother, he already knows three things about him:
Joseph almost killed a teacher.
He was incarcerated at a place called Stone Mountain.
He has a daughter. Her name is Jupiter. And he has never seen her.
What Jack doesn’t know, at first, is how desperate Joseph is to find his baby girl.
Or how urgently he, Jack, will want to help.
But the past can’t be shaken off. Even as new bonds form, old wounds reopen. The search for Jupiter demands more from Jack than he can imagine.

Will Hill’s After The Fire

Father John controls everything inside The Fence. And Father John likes rules. Especially about never talking to Outsiders. Because Father John knows the truth. He knows what is right, and what is wrong. He knows what is coming.
Moonbeam is starting to doubt, though. She’s starting to see the lies behind Father John’s words. She wants him to be found out.
What if the only way out of the darkness is to light a fire?

Jasmine Warga’s Here We Are Now

Despite sending him letters ever since she was thirteen, Taliah Abdallat never thought she'd ever really meet Julian Oliver. But one day, while her mother is out of the country, the famed rock star from Staring Into the Abyss shows up on her doorstep. This makes sense - kinda - because it turns out Julian Oliver is Taliah's father...
When Julian asks her to go with him to his hometown to meet the family she has never known, Taliah embarks on a three-day voyage of discovery - of her father, of the past her mother has never shared with her, and of herself.

Michelle Roehm McCann & Amelie Welden’s Girls Who Rocked the World

Get ready to meet some incredible young women who made their mark on the world before turning twenty and prove that when it comes to having an impact, there’s no such thing as too young! Whether designing famous momuments, fighting for their countries’ freedom or being political pioneers these gutsy girls have changed the way we view the world and ourselves.

So that's my TBR for the month of June!! Please do leave a comment down below, letting me know if you've read (and liked or disliked) any of these books, or what you're planning to read next month - I'd love to hear from you!

Till next time
