One thought on “A Million Junes

  1. Hailey (HaileyinBookland)

    4.5 I adore magical realism, and this was like a Shakespearean tragedy think Romeo and Juliet magical realism hybrid, so it was right up my alley This definitely isn t for everyone as it requires a certain suspension of disbelief, but if you allow yourself to get lost and embrace the oddities of this story, you will most likely love it like I did The writing had the perfect amount of whimsy and darkness to it and everything just clicked to create this wonderfully strange tale Now I will say it d [...]

    this review was originally posted on twirling pagesi ve read many many amazing books these past few months, but never one that made me want to start reviewing again but A Million Junes makes me want to share something it makes me want to feel something deeper and actually talk about it simply put, A Million Junes is so incredibly special all honesty, i don t think this is everyone s cup of tea the concept is a little strange because it s not quite contemporary but also not quite anything else wh [...]

  5. Jeff Zentner

    This book is utterly spellbinding in every way The language, the descriptions, the mythology Emily Henry is just a brilliant writer That s all there is to it This book is impossibly full of magic.

  6. Nastassja

    DNF at page 235I am sorry, but this book is utterly and irrevocably not my cup of tea I struggled with it for than a week and I don t see a point of doing it any longer I am just not interested in the story or characters at all It s sad, though, that I have to call it my first ARC DNF, but, well, it is my first ARC DNF A Million Junes was my first Emily Henry book and I ve heard quite a lot of good about her debut The Love That Split the World, so I when I saw the ARC of June, I thought why not [...]

    Wow This was like a mix of I ll Give You the Sun and Holes Such a beautifully strange story I already want to re read this I loved it SO much sobs forever

  8. Carole (Carole"s Random Life in Books)

    This review could also be found at Carole s Random Life in Books.There was so much to love about this book It was almost a magical experience reading this book The story just kind of sprang to life for me and I was really swept away by the story I couldn t get this story out of my head and if I had a moment free I was reading this book This was a book that I quickly learned to expect the unexpected and just let the beauty of the storytelling take over Simply put, this was an amazing book.Jack go [...]

  9. Mari

    4.5 starsI wish so much this were a true 5 star book for me It was five stars in my heart and five stars through perhaps the first 50 60% The ending wasn t bad, by any means, but it lost a bit of its own magic with too many explanations ones that didn t always fit to me and a literal walk and talk of exposition at the end to tie everything together For a story that flitted so magically at the beginning, the laying out of all the pieces really halted the magic for a moment Other than that one thi [...]

  10. Roshani Chokshi

    Scorchingly beautiful I loved Henry s debut THE LOVE THAT SPLIT THE WORLD but A MILLION JUNES broke my soul This was such a transcendent and moving book about grief and legacy, fraying memory and steeped hate Henry s writing feels like a knife in the night unexpected, cutting, and heart jolting.

  11. Stacee

    I am a sucker for anything that compares itself to R J, but couple that with Emily Henry s name and I didn t need to know anything else I love love loved June and Saul They re both grieving and trying to work through it and I loved every scene with them together They have an immediate and hilarious banter I could have easily read a million pages of the two of them The entire cast of characters is delightful I would like Hannah please It did get a bit confusing with all of the past family membe [...]

  12. Brandie

    Beautiful writing, witty realistic dialogue, a bad ass heroine, a swoony love interest, a unique and magical plot I loved every minute of this book

  13. Gabby

    Grief is an unfillable hole in your body It should be weightless, but it s heavy Should be cold, but it burns Should, over time, close up, but instead it deepens This was going to be a 3 star book for me until that ending oh my god my heart This is a story about this girl named Jack who goes by June, she s named after her Dad and their family thinks they ve been cursed This is a gorgeous story about the love between a Father and a daughter, and the grief someone can experience when they lose a p [...]

  14. Jen (The Starry-Eyed Revue)

    Magical realism is quickly becoming my go to sub genre It lends itself to the here and now while also being a bit mired in fantasy elements Add to that the star crossed lovers aspect and I am sold The O Donnells and the Angerts have generations long feud that rivals that of the Hatfields and McCoys and A Million Junes is basically the unraveling of that tale, of how the feud started and how it will end There is banter There are flashbacks And there is magic And it all culminates into a gloriousl [...]

  15. Justine

    I really enjoyed this one.It was quite far into the magical realism genre, which I loved, and I adored the story itself The book is about reexamining what you think you know about the people you love, about grief and loss, and learning to let go of the past and move forward The romance and friendship between June and Saul was balanced and didn t feel overwrought, so in that sense there was a mature and lasting feel to their relationship.This was my first book by Emily Henry, and I found her writ [...]

  16. Book of the Month

    A Midsummer Night s Fever DreamBy Judge Katie CotugnoOnce in a blue forever, you come across a book that features so many of your favorite elements that you can t help but wonder if it was written specifically for you A Million Junes felt that way to me part Shakespearean retelling and part Alice Hoffman style magical realism, the novel teems with luminous, evocative language and characters so alive I half expected them to climb off the page and walk around my house Throw in a forbidden romance [...]

  17. Rebekah

    My Thoughts THIS WAS AMAZING period, done What can I say okay fine seriously though, I m gonna own this book.This is a story of multiple complex relationships with magical realism This story is compared with Romeo and Juliet which it had that vibe but it is NOT romeo and Juliet, I promise The story unfolds in multiple timelines while maintaining a consistent current timeline It s so different than other books I ve read like it With each of the timelines, the time period can be pretty fluid You [...]

  18. Peri June

    You know life s not like this Even when it s good, it s hard and terrible and you lose things you can t ever replace I haven t read a lot of magical realism and, I have to admit, it s weird I like weird.Here we have a generations long feud between two families the O Donnells and the Angerts It s a deeply rooted hatred that has brought a great deal of misfortune to both families.A curse You know what happens next, don t you FORBIDDEN LOVE June and Saul can t help falling in love even though they [...]

  20. Anita

    What I Loved A Million Junes is one of those books that in its own way, unfolds in multiple timelines while maintaining a consistent current timeline It s different than other books like it, because even on those multiple timelines, the time period can be pretty fluid You jump in and out of the story at a variety of points I m hoping this isn t considered a spoiler because I wanted to bring it up to point out that there was not one point throughout this story where I was confused I find this pre [...]

  21. Kyla Harris

    This is such an adorable book It s crazy and the ideas are far fetched but it s cute The writing is good, characters are good All in all a good story

  22. Marla

    I found this surprisingly good Two families who hate each other and have passed down from generation to generation that they should not have anything to do with the other family but the younger generation has different stories why A magical land where coywolves come and take shoes you leave in the yard and white floaty fluffy balls soak into your skin and show you a memory, not necessarily yours, and cherry trees that grow overnight This is a magical story about a young couple who should hate ea [...]

  23. Esmée

    About two weeks after I initially read this book, I finished it for the second time The first time I read this, I was so caught up in finding out what was happening, I read it very quickly After I finished it, I immediately decided that this book was so beautiful, and that it was meant to be savoured, so that I should read it again at a slower pace And I m so happy I did that As with most magical realisms, this book has so many secret treasures and beautiful sentences that you might not notice i [...]

    This review was originally posted on Rebel Mommy Book BlogWOW I didn t know what to expect from this one but I was blown away Emily Henry s writing is just so easy and beautiful and totally transported me into the story.The O Donnels and the Angerts have been feuding for at least a century, yet Jack June O Donnel isn t exactly sure what has caused the feud Still, she is an O Donnel and hates the Angerts That is until Saul Angert shows back up in town and she finds herself falling for him However [...]

  25. Xavier (CharlesXplosion)

    Beautiful written chalked full of lyricism and heart The characters that Henry creates are so vibrant and fully realized You get drawn into this Romeo and Juliet esque love story coupled with an unexpected magical twist Take some time to indulge your reading sensibilities and listen to June and Saul s love story.
