Today I will be sharing with all of you, my June TBR, this month I will be participating in the Sim-a-Thon, reading challenges. All these books will be helping me complete the challenge in this read-a-thon, if you would like to know more about this, click the link at the end of this post.
Da Vinci’s Tiger tells the story of the girl in the painting. Ginevra Da’ Benci, was one of Leonardo da Vinci’s muses. This book takes place in renaissance Florence, a city filled with the arts thanks to the Medici family. We really venture into what inspired this painting by one of the most intriguing men throughout history.
With this one, I don’t think I need to do a lot of explaining. This is the graphic novel for episodes I-III of the Star Wars Saga. Unpopular opinion but I love the prequels, they are my favorite movies in the whole series.
First off, can we look at this cover? It’s beautiful!!! A Sky Painted Gold is set in Cornwall, in the 1920s, the setting and the cover is what really brought my interest to this story. Lou has always been fascinated by this old abandoned mansion in her village, one day a set of twins come and open it back up. Attending lavish parties and becoming more invested in these siblings, Lou has started forgetting about her original dreams and ambitions in life. Will she remember them?
The word ‘Kids’, in the title but an adult book, that’s ironic. Meddling Kids is said to be a Scooby Do like story, but I am getting more of IT by Stephen King vibes. The plot is that four kids in 1977 have had to solve a mystery but then Cantero skips ahead to 1990, the friends must come back together again and see if they really did solve the mystery from when they were children.
You can expect reviews for all these except the graphic novel throughout this month!
