June 2018 Reading Recap

I can’t believe June went by so quickly, but I shouldn’t be surprised because I’m pretty sure I spent the entire month buried in a book, or listening to a book,or at the library. Oops. I was super successful with my reading this month, for once! You can read my May recap here, but in May I finished 17 books, short of my goal of 20. I overshot my goal in June and read 23 books! I also read 7 or the 12 books on my loose June TBR list, so I’m pretty proud of that. I still haven’t gotten around to Outlander yet…but we’ll see.

Here we go!

BOTM Pick: I picked the Book of Essie, and I actually read it within the month of June. I think this may actually be a first from me, and I’m super proud. Now to catch up on my other BOTM picks. My Book of Essie review will be up soon!

Favorite Book: This is always so hard. Probably The Last Time I Lied or People Like Us. I love a good murder/missing person story and both of these books delivered. Interesting female protagonists just grab me. I recommend both of these if you’re looking for a thrill. The Last Time I Lied is adult horror/thriller and People Like Us is YA!

Least Favorite Book: The Wrinkle in Time. Ugh. I read this so that I could cross “a childhood classic you never read” off my PopSugar challenge but i didn’t love it. Maybe it’s just old school and paved the way for the books I DID love but this book did nothing for me.

July Goals/TBR: Oh lordy. I have some pretty specific goals this month that you’ll read more about in an upcoming post but here’s a rough TBR with what I have in mind

  • What to Read and Why
  • Save the Date
  • The Running Man
  • From the Corner of the Oval
  • Ka: Dar Oakley in the Ruin of Ymr
  • Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win
  • Exceptional: Why the World Needs a Powerful America
  • The Visitors
  • They Both Die at the End

  1. I remember struggling through A Wrinkle in Time in grade school and wondering why other people adored it! That one’s a mystery to me too, you’re not alone! June has been my worst reading month so far, I’m envious of how much you managed to read this month, that sounds so fantastic!
