June Haul & Wrap-up

This month looks like a bit of a doozy, but I’m actually proud to announce that I set myself a goal of only purchasing ebooks that were on sale, and BOTM books… and I succeeded! Well, almost.

June Wrap-Up


The Lightning Thief – Rick Riordan (review) ★★★★☆
Thirteen Chairs – Dave Shelton (review) ★★★★☆
What I Lost – Alexandra Ballard (RTC) ★★★★☆
Royal Bastards – Andrew Shvarts (review) ★★★★★

As you can see, I had a pretty awesome reading month in July! I finished 10 books (which was more than my goal of 8), I read 7/9 of my June TBR choices, and all of my reads were 4- or 5-star reads except 2 of them! I also was planning on 50% of my June reads being ARCs, and I surpassed that by 10%. (Hey, it’s the small victories!)

Now, on to the hauls…

  1. I’m glad you had a good reading month in June, and I hope July is just as great! I also got Once and For All by Dessen. I got The Last Star by Yancey and Everything, Everything in June too. Most of my other books were from the library!

  2. Looks like a great month! I need to start using my kindle more… For some reason I have a problem with it. I like it and everything, but I don’t use it as much as I should.. I don’t know. Haha.
