Monthly Recap: June 2016

Screen Shot 2016-01-19 at 8.14.52 PM

Happy June! I’m so happy it’s summer! Despite how much summer homework I have over these ten weeks, I’m thrilled to have more reading time. And more time to do things overall (without school taking over every part of my life). Without further ado, let’s get started with what I did this month!

This month, I read a total of 10 books, of which were quite diverse, I think. I read two required summer reading books (THE CRUCIBLE and 1984), some ARCs, and some backlist books I had been interested in for a while!

For 2016, I signed up for 4 year-long challenges. You can see my overall progress here.


No challenges this month!

  1. A busy month! Thank you for adding a guide in for requesting ARCs. I’m still not sure how to appropriately do that! I look forward to the reviews on Jewel and White Rose. I’ve been considering easing them but I’m unsure at the moment.


    • I liked 1984, surprisingly! It was boring at some parts but it definitely picked up and really made me think. I gave it a 3.5/5 stars!
      I’ll be sure to post a review for NEVERNIGHT… so far, I really like it! Happy reading! 🙂


  2. I CANNOT wait to read This Savage Song! I keep seeing people’s early reviews from arc copies and get so jealous! When I was at a signing for Victoria the girl in front of me in line got an arc of it in March. I was sooooo jealous.


  3. You had such a fantastic month! How are you liking Elise Kova’s series? I’ve heard such great things about it. And how was This Savage Song?

    I’m so jealous you got the ARC for Nevernight! It’s one my most anticipated reads this year!


  4. July came fast O_O FREAKY FAST! haha, you read a lot this month! How did you feel about This Savage Song and The Marked Girl? Those two are on my TBR, well I started TSS and made it really far but it was too dark for me so I stopped D: but it was AMAZING! Also, I am excited to start My Lady Jane soon 😀 I was inspired by your review and B&N XD! ALSO I hope you ADORE Nevernight 😀 I am SO excited for that one and nervous, but happy early birthday 🙂


  5. Great monthly wrap up post! I loved reading about the books you read and which ones you loved or hated as well as all the blogging related events that took place. A late happy birthday as well!! Hope you enjoyed your day! 🙂


  6. Truest is an all-time favorite of mine. I hope you love it! Feel free to link your how-to about requesting ARCs to the discussion challenge link-up – while some people may not consider it a discussion, exactly, I think it fits the spirit of the challenge. (And don’t worry about linking it up to the July linky instead of June – I’d love for people to see it!)


  7. Happy LATE Birthday!! I hear great things about Truest, so I hope you enjoy it. I really do want to read it. I want to read Nevernight as well. 🙂 I’ve never read 1984 (but I do recommend A Brave New World). I have read The Crucible for school though and I liked it. I’m fascinated by all that though.



    • Thank you so much! I actually recently finished NEVERNIGHT and I really enjoyed it! Thank you for the rec; I really enjoyed 1984 too, so I would also recommend that one. Thank you, Lauren! 🙂
