During the month of June I have eased back on my reading a bit. This will probably continue throughout the summer months, there is so much going on. We have family coming into town as well as a vacation planned. This month I have read 30 books. I have once again included a screenshot of the books I have read. If you have interest in reading my reviews you can go to my Goodreads account and check them out.

My book haul for June was amazing! Some of these books are for completing collections I have started and some are books that I have not read. I had to go through my book collections and make some hard choices in order to make room for the new books. Sigh, pretty soon I am going to have to buy some new book shelves. I am just not ready yet.

For June, I had wanted to read three books from my kindle TBR list but I only managed to read one. I read Shadowbound by Bec McMaster. I will have to wait on the other two books. For July I am not making any reading plans beyond reading:

The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

I bought this book last month and I am really looking forward to reading this novel. ❤️


As it stands here is my physical TBR shelf at the end of this month:

So that is it for my June wrap-up and July reading plans. Any books you looking forward to reading?


Love Always,

    Wow, I love how slowing down is reading 30 books in a month. That’s amazing!

    • It is more like an addiction. lol Sometimes I feel like I “haven’t read anything in forever” and it has only been a day. I blame a reading challenge I was in last year. It demanded a lot of us reading wise and now I know that I can read about 60 books in a month if I push myself so 30 seems like I am not trying. Believe it or not many of my team members could out read me..like almost 100 pages per hour and they retained what they read. lol I was the light weight. 🙂
