I fell in love with my June reads, which were Gillespie and I, by Jane Harris and Flight Behaviour by Barbara Kingsolver. My goodness I became immersed in both books. Wonderful. I almost hate the authors for their talent. I am always left rather lacking.
If you love a good character, and a story that envelopes you and pulls you in. If you want to giggle at some clever prose and cry at poignant and sad stories, then these two novels will be right up your alley.
