Wait… a Reading Wrap Up?
I’ll be honest, I’ve never done one of these before, but the craziness of June (see below) resulted in my planned Reading List never seeing the light of your device screen – so here we are.
Well Bookworms, let me tell you about my June thus far (I’ll keep it short, I promise). As you may (or may not) know, when I am not reading, I am also a teacher (a first year teacher, to be exact). Which means that for the past month (yes, MONTH), all my free time has been consumed with marking, planning, and writing year-end reports for my students. On top of that, I also started a part-time job in the evenings, and was still dredging through the ungodly task of unpacking after moving house.
Despite all this, I have been slowly working my way through my June Reading List, and laying out plans to return to a more regular blogging schedule come July (AKA the end of the school year).
Moving on – as you may have guessed, May was not a great reading month for me, but it was (surprisingly) more productive than anticipated – all things considered! During the month of May I managed to sneak in enough time to read 6 books – Kingsbane by Claire Legrand, The Migration by Helen Marshall, How to Make Friends with the Dark by Kathleen Glasgow, Deathcaster by Cinda Williams Chima, Two Can Keep a Secret (Audiobook) by Karen M McMannis, and Nocturna by Maya Motayne. This means that I have now read 36/50 books for my 2019 Reading Challenge, keeping me well ahead of my reading schedule for 2019!
So what did I end up reading in June? I tackled a combo of older releases that have been waiting in my TBR Box for a couple months now, in addition to some exciting new releases and ARCs, and actually had a fair amount of success!
In June, I read 5 books, which were:
- The Tiger at Midnight by Swati Teerdhala (Release Date: April 23, 2019)
- King of Fools by Amanda Foody (Release Date: April 30, 2019)
- Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson (Release Date: June 4, 2019)
- The Grace Year (ARC) by Kim Liggett (Release Date: September 17, 2019)
- The Goodluck Girls (ARC) by Charlotte Nicole Davis (Release Date: October 1, 2019)
