May was filled with big books, but June is PRIDE month!!
May was slow but went well. I did TomeTopple readathon and the whole month was mostly for bigger books. I’m still ahead of my schedule which I’m super pleased about considering the sizes of those books in May. Though I still have a few books rolling over to this months TBR.
I managed 7 books in May which pleases me, even though I didn’t finish my TBR.
June contains a round of QueerLit Readathon and probably something else. QueerLit has already started and this is my TBR. I won’t include those book in this TBR but they will be in my Wrap-up at the end of this month.
It total I’ve managed to gather 8 books for my TBR this month. It should be manageable though I have already forgot whats on my QueerLit TBR and I’m probably in for a surprise…
Let’s dive in!
The links will take you to their GoodReads page for each book. It the book doesn’t have a GoodReads page, the link will take you to their Amazon page. They are not affiliated links.
Yes they are both still here. Both originate from April’s TBR…
Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – it’s a shame I didn’t get to this in April nor in May. On it goes to the June TBR.
Who Fears Death? by Nnedi Okorafor – Again another book from the April TBR that I also didn’t get to in May. On to June TBR it goes.
Empire of Gold (The Daevabad Trilogy #3) by S. A. Chakraborty – AAAAA! it’s the end of the series and I can’t wait to start this final chapter! Its due out on the 11th June but I don’t think I’ll get to it before then so another late one…
Court of Miracles by Kester Grant – I didn’t get to this in May because TomeTopple… It’s due out on 4th June but I don’t think ill manage to read and review it before then. Hopefully during June will be fine 🙂 I loved Les Miserable when I read it a few years ago and I’m looking forward to reading this “Les Mis meets The Jungle Book” …?!?!
I’m sure something in my QueerLit TBR covers this… If not “How Fears Death?” covers this aspect since its been on my shelf forever.
I’ll probably have some for the QueerLit readathon TBR on here too.
The Color Purple by Alice Walker – already available and ready to go. A classic I’ve always wanted to read so here we are 🙂 However this book is not a major priority and might get cut depending on how I get on with everything else.
A History of the World in 21 Women by Jenni Murray – should be available on 6th June, but wasn’t meant to be available before the Autumn… This book sound really interesting and I would love to see the evolution of our society through a woman view. However this book is not a major priority and might get cut depending on how I get on with everything else.
The Switch by Beth O’Leary – should be available on the 25th June, but wasn’t meant to be available before the Autumn… Well I loved the Flatshare and so I hope her second book lives up to my expectations of cute and funny at the same time with complicated and realistic characters.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas – This is my big read of the year! For the last three years I’ve read one 800+ page classic a year. It all started with Les Miserable, then Anna Karenina and last year was Gone With The Wind. However, in those previous years I started the book towards the end of the year leaving me to rush to finish it on New Years Eve. I have finish all those three long classics just before midnight every time. Three years running! I won’t have it this year! This year I’m starting yearly. And hopefully finishing in a decent time too. I hope to finish it sometime around summer so you’ll see this book a lot on my posts.
Update April: I didn’t manage to get started on this in March like I planned to. Maybe this month will be better…! I need to make a start on this. If I can do single-digit progress on this book I will be very happy 😀
Update May: This is the 3rd month I have it on my TBR without actually starting it… Though I have opened it and read part of the introduction… which isn’t saying much but hey! its a small step forward though I don’t count that as starting the book.
Update June: AAAAAARG!!! Just get started on it already!!!
Have you read any of these? What did you think?
What’s on your June TBR?
