I didn’t expect May to go as well as it did but I’m glad I got to read as much as I did. I plan on keeping a light TBR separate from the rest of my books to not tempt me to stray too much. Here’s the books I hope to read in the month of June:
Total books: 8
Book Love by Debbie Tung: My best friend bought and read this book and loved it so she decided I needed to read it next. I don’t know what it’s about (and I want to keep it that way), but I’m looking forward to giving it a go. What reader doesn’t love reading about books and how much other people love them, too?
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee: I know, I know. How could I go through my whole student life without ever reading this book? I blame that on taking English through summer school during high school so that I could take even more courses I was interested in during the school year. So, once again, my best friend has lent me this book because she loved it that much.
Everblade by Shannon Messenger (Keeper of the Lost Cities, Book 3): There’s no way that I’m going to put off continuing on in this series for a full month. My goal is to read at least this book, though I might bet through the fourth and fifth books as well depending on how I feel throughout the month.
Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee: I’ve been looking forward to reading this book ever since I got it. It’s filled with magic and intrigue, and promoted by Rick Riordan whose writing opinion I trust, so I’m confident I’m going to love it. And I’ve got to say, I’m vocal in my love for fox spirits.
On The Come Up by Angie Thomas: I don’t know how I haven’t read this book yet but you’d better believe I’m going to devour it this month. The Hate U Give was my favourite read of 2018 and I’m looking forward to seeing where Thomas takes the world. While I know that this is a completely different book with a completely different cast and premise, Thomas created such a wonderful world that I can’t wait to dive back in.
Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto (Crown of Feathers, Book 1): I don’t want to know much about this book before going into it so I’ve only briefly glanced at the synopsis. I’ll admit, the cover of this book drew me in but the recommendations of people I trust is what sealed the deal for me. I’m interested in reading about the Phoenix riders and the war torn world that they exist in.
Dime Store Magic by Kelley Armstrong (Women of the Otherworld, Book 3): I’m going to try to make half of the books I read this month be rereads and there’s no better place to start with that than a series I started rereading last month! I can’t wait to jump back into this series and re-experience everything it has to offer. There’s a reason that Armstrong is one of my favourite authors of all time.
Omens by Kelley Armstrong (Cainsville, Book 1): The second book I plan to reread this month just so happens to be by Armstrong as well. I’ve read part of this series but it’s been so long I need to restart the series before I’m able to finish it so that I can refresh myself on what went on and how everyone is connected.
I know I said I want half of the books I read this month to be rereads and I’ve only listed two, but there’s a reason for that. I know what new books I want to read but I want to leave a little wiggle room in my reading plans for the month. I might decide I want to continue on with the Women of the Otherworld or Cainsville series and I might decide I want to reread a different book. Flexibility seems to be my key to successfully following my TBR.
