Why yes. I have already done TBRs for both the Olympic Games Read-a-thon and #MakeYourMythTaker. Thank you for asking. However, because I like having my general monthly TBR in this format, well, here you go. Enjoy.
My Lady Jane: The Not Entirely True Story by Jodi Meadows, Cynthia Hand and Brodi Ashton
Foundryside (Founders #1) by Robert Jackson Bennett
Steel Crow Saga by Paul Krueger
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins
I’m perfectly happy with this pile. It’s read-a-thon compliant, but also books that I would likely have picked up this month anyway… possibly with the exception of My Lady Jane. Whilst I don’t Not want to read it (I did buy it, after all), it was picked for me by Katy to read this month as part of the Assassin pathway for one of the read-a-thons. It’s fine, I’m just not looking forward to it as much as the others!
Less new books
Oh god. Kingdom of Ash. Oh god. I’ve been meaning to read this for more than a year. Thing is, I have a pattern. I always, always dread reading the Throne of Glass books and end up falling head over heels for them, so I know I’ll love it when I pick it up.
It’s 980 bloody pages though. Which is why I have to read it in the first place – for the ‘longest book on your TBR’ prompt. Cheers…
Playing to the Gallery by Grayson Perry
I am looking forward to this one, however. It’s a short book about modern art and the accessibility thereof. I do like reading about art, modern and otherwise, so I’ll definitely be getting to this one in June.
I ended up rereading six whole books in May! I’m definitely on a bit of a rereading kick, as I keep thinking of different books I could pick up for the second time. This will do for the time being (although neither are read-a-thon compliant, but I’ll just have to see what I end up with.
So that’s my June TBR. In May, I read a total of 12 books… only 3 of which were from my planned TBR. My full wrap-up is here, if you’re interested.
Let’s hope June goes slightly more to plan!
