Book of the Month Club Pick:
I thought I would start sharing my BOTMC pick each month as part of the wrap up as a look ahead. For June, I am going to pick Enchanted Islands by Allison Amend. It is about spies in the Galapagos…sounds perfect for the summer!

I hit 8 books this month, which is pretty great for all the transition that has been happening. I loved my May BOTMC pick, I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh

Don’t forget you can read detailed reviews of all the books I read at goodreads.com/emurch, and if you have any thoughts about any of the books I’ve read this month tweet me @GameandRead. Until next time, happy reading!

–Erin
