I’m so excited about June because Kari and I are hosting another round of The Loyal Book-a-Thon. I really have a lot of fun planning these readathons with her, and I always have a lot of fun reading for them. We try to keep them flexible and allow for doubling up of prompts and maximum flexibility. People always have things going on and we don’t want it to be overwhelming. I know for me that I will probably have less reading time than usual because as of today, I’ll have to start going back to work and being in the building part time during the week. I’m excited to see my students, but it does mean less listening to audiobooks as I work through the day.
I’m making this TBR, but I am going to be flexible with myself as I go through the month. If I decide to change out a book, that’s fine with me. But let’s just get into it.
- Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim
- Road Trip (Set on the Road)
- Travel Journal (Review/Document the Read)
- Ketchup (Been on TBR Forever)
- Stargazing (Retelling)
Spin the Dawn is a book I’m excited to read and it’s my next recommendation for the #bestiemademe challenge Kari and I are doing. I’m also pleased that it fits so many of the books on my TBR.
- A Lesson in Thorns by Sierra Simone
- Fireworks (Romantic Read)
- Hot Dogs (‘Trashy’ Read)
- Suntanning (Hot Read)
This really isn’t my usual type of book. However, I’m kind of intrigued so I’m giving it a shot. It definitely suits a couple of the prompts from our readathon.
- Versailles: My Father’s Palace by Maite Labat
- Picnic Basket (Read a Book Outside)
- Cartoons (Graphic Novel)
- Lemonade (Fresh Release)
- Ice Cream (Short + Sweet)
This is an eARC I have. It’s not published til September so I know that I have some time, but I’m looking forward to seeing it. I definitely have an interest in history.
- Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky
- Dad Joke (Pick a Book Your Dad Would Read)
- Fireflies (Book about Innocence)
- Ghost Stories (Horror Book)
- Graduation Day (Adult Book)
- Camping (Wilderness Setting)
This book is a monster, but it’s the only book I have that seems like something my dad would read. Because it’s so monstrous in size, I figured I needed to make it fit for a lot of prompts in the readathon.
- 10 Things I Can See From Here by Carrie Mac
- Pride Month (LGBTQ2SIA+ Read)
- Sangria (Warm and Fuzzy Read)
- Farmer’s Market (Locally Written)
I don’t own a lot of books by Canadian authors, which is probably not so great considering the fact that I am Canadian. However, I have this one borrowed from my classroom library which I think should be really interesting to read. Plus it looks pretty quick.
- Cleopatra: Daughter of the Nile by Kristiana Gregory
- Bees (Has a Queen)
- Poolside (Water on Cover)
This book was a perfect fit for my TBR in June because I had two spaces left on the bingo board and it fit super neatly into both of those slots. It’ll be a re-read for me, but it’s been a long time since I’ve read it.
- Henry VI Part 3 by William Shakespeare
- Flip Flops (Retry a Read)
- Gardening (Flower on Cover)
- S’Mores (Part of Trilogy)
I am looking forward to continuing my reading of Shakespeare. I’ve attempted to start this one for awhile but haven’t quite gotten into it yet.
What are you going to read in June?
