The themes this month are…
- PRIDE MONTH — all month
- time to celebrate queer-ness even more than I already do every day! 😂🌈
- Jazzy June — all month
- come join us at Devour Your TBR on Goodreads while we reread some favorites!
- #StalkAlong — all month
- check out the announcement post and join us in reading (or, like me, rereading) the Stalking Jack the Ripper series leading up to the release of the finale!
And of course, there’s always the risk of an Unexpected Readathon Time announcement! 😉
You can view a Goodreads shelf of my entire month’s TBR here!
Now, on to my TBR!
I didn’t plan to put much of anything on my June TBR, but it just… kind of happened. 🤷♀️

Upcoming ARC Releases:
Back to our regularly scheduled programming, here’s a list of some of the top-priority ARCs I have coming out over the next month or two that I’d like to read ASAP!
- 🌻 Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune — Roselle Lim
- Dust Devils — Jonathan Janz
- 🌻 Hungry Hearts — Elsie Chapman
- 🌈 Something Like Gravity — Amber Smith
- 🌈 Silver in the Wood — Emily Tesh
- Call it What You Want — Brigid Kemmerer
- In the Shadow of Spindrift House — Mira Grant
- Growing Things and Other Stories — Paul Tremblay
- 🌻 Spin the Dawn — Elizabeth Lim
I’m still working through this wild stack of graphic novels from the library! 😬 These are all due back over the next couple of weeks, so anything that doesn’t get read ASAP will simply have to be checked out again at a later time.
🧙♂️ fantasy & scifi
- Graphic novels & manga:
- previous month’s goals:
- focus on mood reading ✅
- clear my “RTC” shelf 🤷♀️ (I knocked out about 2/3 of the shelf so far, so I’m actually really pleased!)
- read at least 3 overdue ARCs 🤷♀️ (I was counting “overdue” as anything that released before May 2019, and I read one book and am still reading two more for this challenge!)
- Finish my entire TBR for this month (just the main TBR part — not all of the upcoming ARCs, etc.)
- Get into a better schedule with upcoming ARCs (I just made a new spreadsheet for this that I think will help me stay on track better!)
- Play The Sims 4 while audiobooking (and stop feeling guilty for gaming when I could be reading!)
What books on your June TBR are you most excited to read?
