May Wrap Up & June TBR

I'm soooo happy to be in June. I love my hot sunny weather. We don't really get a spring here. It usually goes from coats to no coats. May was a pretty busy month and seemed to go by fast. I was packing and just purging all my crap. I was training for a 5K(which I ran on Saturday, pictures are on yesterdays SS). And there was just life. But for feeling like I was pretty busy I sure read a hell of a lot of books. 26 books to be exact. :O *pats on back* A few were buddy reads with Samantha and one with Juhina(it was supposed to be two but I could not get into The Eternity Cure and had to put it down). I was also in a big re-reading mood(still am actually). My ratings overall were pretty good. So a very good reading month. Let's get into it.

Dream Factory by Brad Barkley & 3*
The Storybook of Legends(Ever After High #1) by Shannon Hale 4*
Pure(Covenant #2) by Jennifer L Armentrout 4*

Saga Volume 2 by Brian K Vaughan 5*
Broken Hearts, Fences and Other Things to Mend(Broken Hearts & Revenge #1) by Katie Finn DNF @ 30%
Just One Night(Just One Day #2.5) by Gayle Forman 4*
So a lot of 4*. Which is great. Like I mentioned a lot of re-reads and also did some graphic novel reading. As for my favourite of the month would have to be some of my re-reads. But as for new reads would definitely be all 3 volumes of Saga. They are amazing! And Breakable was fantastic. It made me so happy to have Lucas's/Landon's POV. I love him.

For my June TBR I was thinking that I should make it the month of finishing series off. I have quite a few where I just need to read the last book. So annoying. :P I know I won't get to them all. But I'll make it a goal anyhow. I'm doing more buddy reads with Samantha. Ruin and Rising is finally almost here(which falls into finishing off all the series month)! Of course there's always review books I need to get too. I suck at getting to review copies. Anyhow, here's the planned ones including all the series books to finish off and the buddy reads.

  2. They all seem like great books. I need to go and get COFH and Just one night!

  3. WOW! Congrats, that is a HUGE amount of books. I only read 9 this month and felt pretty crappy about it. I haven't even completed one for May yet. You read a lot of great books that I am hoping to read myself - The One being pretty high up on my TBR list right now.
