Happy June! I’m a little late, but I recently came back from a two-week vacation with my husband and his parents, so I haven’t had a chance to blog very much. I should be back to normal now, though!
Also, today happens to be my husband and my seven-year dating anniversary! I know wedding anniversaries tend to be a bigger deal, but our dating one is a biggie for me, too. 🙂
Here’s my (belated) June 2018 TBR list, and I’m excited for this month! Hope you all have a great reading month, too!
June 2018 Poll Winner!
1) Room by Emma Donoghue: This book was voted for My Book Bucket List – June 2018 Book a couple of weeks ago. It’s one that I’ve been meaning to read for quite some time.
2) The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw: I actually planned to have read this one last month, but time just slipped, so it’s back on this list! Fingers crossed I can read it this month!
Blogger Reviewer Program:
3) The Fatness by Mark A. Rayner: This month two Blogger Reviewer books, via OnlineBookClub.org, were made available. Since it’s been a while, I decided to grab this one. I actually finished reading it already. Check out my review here!
4) Voyage of Pearl of the Seas by Ruth Finnegan: This second Blogger Reviewer book is short one, and I’ve already started it. Unfortunately, I’m not enjoying it too much, but I do plan on finishing it.
My Own Choosing:
5) Rome Reconstructed by Archeolibri: We recently came back from a two-week vacation that included visiting Rome (for the second time). This time, though, I purchased the current (English) version of Rome Reconstructed. It’s actually a pretty neat book that shows the current state of Rome’s ancient ruins and how it most likely once was.
6) Father Figure by James J. Cudney @This is my Truth Now: This is a book that I am super excited for! I absolutely loved Mr. Cudney’s first book, Watching Glass Shatter, and I’m sure this one will be great, as well.
7) Craig & Fred: A Marine, A Stray Dog, and How They Rescued Each Other by Craig Grossi: I was given this non-fiction as a gift by one of grandmothers (from my hubby’s side – thank you, Kathy!), and it’s such a great story so far!
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and A Clash of Kings: These two books, which are both part of my all-time favorite series, are ongoing reads for me and are both re-reads. For Harry Potter, I am following a podcast, Harry Potter and the Sacred Text, as they read and discuss chapter by chapter. A Clash of Kings, I am also doing something similar, where I read and listen to a discussion of what I read; each episode of the Davos’ Fingers podcast focuses on four to five chapters of the book. This method helps me to dive even deeper into each text, and I absolutely love it!
Thank you for reading!
Here’s to another great month of reading!
