June has come and gone and so has this very strange end of the school year. I’m looking forward to my summer vacation and some reading and relaxing. Before I can jump into that, however, I have to look back on my reading month in June. I read 23 books this month, which I feel pretty good about. You’ll find everything I read below the cut.
June’s book for the #bestiemademe challenge is Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim. Kari has also reviewed this book, and you can find that here. She absolutely loved it, and honestly, this is another recommendation that she knocked out of the park. I really, really had a good time reading this book and I ended up giving it 4 stars on Goodreads.
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.
May marked another month of me working from home, so it meant that I listened to a lot of audiobooks again. However, I also got to read some physical books, and I checked some of the beefier reads off my TBR. Overall, it was a really good reading month and I felt like I really enjoyed a lot of the things that I read. Everything that I read can be found below the cut!
The fact that anyone can pass up a story that is described as a “Slytherin romance” is beyond me. Maybe it’s a guilty pleasure, but all I know is that it’s fun and enjoyable, and that’s all that matters.
I really enjoyed Daughter of the Pirate King. While Levenseller’s other books are on my ongoing TBR list, this book reminded me of how fun her writing is while simultaneously reminding me that I need to read her other two books as soon as possible!
