June 2019 Wrap-Up

OMG June is over!?! Where did it go??  I think I had a really good reading month.  I read 26 books, which was higher than I had listed on my TBR.  We’ll see whether or not I stayed on track.  So let’s get into it.

Love & Other Carnivorous Plants by Florence Gonsalves DNFd
Listen to Your Heart by Kasie West 4★

I DNFd two (well I put down another so I guess maybe 3).  My favourite by far is Middlegame! But Heartstopper and My Brother’s Husband are close seconds.  I would highly recommend those three – specifically Middlegame’s audiobook.  The other audiobook I would recommend is Killing November – very good.

Stats

I had so much fun making graphics last month that I’ve done it again lol.  My average rating was 3.9 (minor drop from last month) and I read 7557 pages (an increase of 1857 pages, which I can’t believe!!!) – averaging out to 251.9 pages/day (an increase of 68 pages/day).  I met my goal I mentioned last month – I read more owned books (13) than borrowed (12).  Hopefully I can keep that going because I have WAY too many TBR owned books lol.

Challenges

TBR and Beyond Read With Pride Word Search Challenge!

Image may contain: text

TBR and Beyond Book Club had a Pride Month challenge where we were to match up a book with two (at most) word prompts.  Below are the books that matched each prompt.

Reading Rivalry – Rainbow Rowell

As I told you at the beginning of the month,  I was a part of Reading Rivalry.  I was part of the Attachment team.  Below are the books that fit the prompts only.

Comparing TBR to Actually Read

I thought this would be a fun check-in for myself and hopefully, you find it at least interesting… Okay, so this may only make sense to me.  The books listed in the Read “Instead” column isn’t a direct replacement, but ones that I picked up that wasn’t on my TBR originally.  I read 13 books out of the 24 books originally on my TBR (54%) and then added 13 books that weren’t originally on my TBR (making the 26 books in total).

Alright, so there you have it.  My super long June Wrap-up.  I don’t know if I can expect more of the same for July, but I can hope 🙂

What did you read this month? Did you read anything I read and agree/disagree? What was most surprising? What did you love that I should put on my TBR soon?

Until next time.
