6 in 6 
The Six in Six is a meme created by Jo at The Book Jotter At the end of June (or in my case, mid-July!) we are halfway through the year, so the idea is to share the books we have read in those first 6 months.
In the true spirit of the meme, we are asked to share 6 books in 6 categories. Because of the time factor, we can create a post with whatever combination works for us as long as it involves 6 books. Nicki @ The Secret Library Book Blog inspired me to participate in this meme.
For this 6 in 6 post, I will begin by listing the 6 best books I’ve read so far this year. Then I will add 6 additional categories but each category will have only one selection (not 6).

6 Best Books I’ve Read in 6 Months!
Best? These are books that left me with a book hangover and a satisfying feeling of time well spent. They represent a mix of genres and tones.
In this list of 6, this is a STANDOUT…..The Girl With the Louding Voice is separated from the other five by a huge gap: there’s The Girl With the Louding Voice and then there are the others.
Why I love it: INSPIRATIONAL
Why I love it: REAL LIFE HERO
Why I love it: STRONG SENSE OF TIME AND PLACE
(linked to Goodreads review….blog review coming soon)
Why I love it: RIVETING, ENGAGING STORYTELLING
Why I love it: PURELY ESCAPIST, PAGE TURNING
Why I love it: BOOK ABOUT BOOKS/BOOKSHOPS, FRIENDSHIP THEME
6 More Categories:
Best Nonfiction: The Only Plane in the Sky by Garrett M. Graff
Best Memoir: Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb
