June. June. June.
June was….alright I guess. I mean it held a lot of stress and work, but it was also marked the start of my summer vacation! *cheers*
Reading-wise I did fairly well.
Book buying wise…I did exceptionally well and ummmmm let’s just say…..
I bought some books.
I read a total of 4 books in June! Three from my scheduled TBR and one from the library that I picked up!
Bentwhistle in A Threat from the Past by Paul Cude
Not my favourite book of the month, but it was okay. You can read my full review for more!
The Kingdom of Oceana by Mitchell Charles
A fun adventure story with Hawaiian folklore! I even have a giveaway running where you can win a copy! Check out my full review for more!
Hearts Are Like Balloons by Candace Robinson.
What a whirl-wind of emotions this book took me through! I really enjoyed it! Full Review!
Nameless by Jennifer Jenkins
A really fun, edge-of-your-seat fantasy/adventure. I have been eyeing this book for a while and I really enjoyed it. It had its problems, but it was a solid read! Review to come!
Other Fun Posts from June
Tower of Dawn Cover & My Thoughts (a longish..but entertaining rant.)
Well, as mentioned I have a lot…and I mean a lot of books to haul this month. After a disappointing month for buying books in May, I splurged. I. Splurged.
Commencing massive haul in 3…2…1…
The Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy by Sarah J. Maas.
I still bought these books, even though I was bitter for not getting to meet her when she came. *Rendz is still very bitter* Really hoping I do not regret this buy. Hopefully they are as good as people say. *Rendz kind of regrets buying these books already…*
Then I went on a BookOutlet binge!
I bought the Snow like Ashes trilogy by Sara Raasch. Yes I have already read them, but I wanted to OWN them!
PLUS I GOT THE LUNAR CHRONICLES COLOURING BOOK! I was screaming when I flipped through it and realized I finally owned my own copy!
That’s enough of me buying books…
For some reason I got super lucky this month and won a couple of giveaways!
I received an ARC of Zero Repeat Forever by G.S. Prendergast! (Technically Maz won this for me because I asked her to enter the giveaway for me…since I was on an internet ban *exam required ban*)
I also won a finished copy of Maud by Melanie J. Fishbane. I read an eARC but I am so in love with the finished copy! It is beautiful!
I also won a copy of The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson but it has yet to arrive!
Finally, I took a trip to the library. I checked out The Duke of Bannerman Prep by Katie A. Nelson and Nameless by Jennifer Jenkins! Reviews for both of these books will be up at some point in July!
End of haul!
So yeah…lots of awesome books bought this month and I don’t feel guilty one bit! Well maybe a little…
Since it is summer time, the length of these TBRs are going to be super long! I want to get to several books on my shelves, plus I’ll be making frequent trips to the library so….be prepared for a long list!
This month I plan on reading…
The Duke of Bannerman Prep by Katie A. Nelson
(I finished it…but like I started and finished it in July so it technicaly was on the TBR)
The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Yup a reread for the #YABloggersReadalong! I’m already in the middle of it and my love/feels are giving me life!!
The Book of Whispers by Kimberley Starr
I need to get through my Net Galley reads!
The Ninth Circle by C.A. Harland
Still trying to get through these Net Galley reads!
Zero Repeat Forever by G.S. Prendergast
This comes out in August so I want to have my ARC read by then!
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
I really hope I don’t regret buying this series. Seriously.
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
Maz will yell at me forever if I don’t read this soon.
Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas
The probably won’t happen because I have been avoiding it practically all year, but the time has come to get myself together in preparation for Tower of Dawn.
End of TBR!
If I’m a good girl and finish my Net Galleys….I’ll be getting to Scarlet!
Alright my loves, this is the end of my long wrap up and TBR! Let me know which books you are reading this month! Or the book release you are most anticipating this month. There are so many good books coming in July and my birthday may also, probably fall in this month.
