June Wrap Up

So, this was a busy reading month for me. I took part in six readathons, which would be absolutely fine if they didn’t all overlap. Emojiathon and The Annual Harry Potter Readathon were set for the month and I had seven books in total for those readathons. But then I went a little reading challenge mad and I signed up for Read-O-Rama ReadathonLibrary-a-thonBecause Dragons Readathon and Alphabethon. All of them lasted a week and the Because Dragon RAT started two days later than the other two. I had great fun reading all those books I have been meaning for a while but I’m going to try and not do it again. Because I gave myself seventeen books to read in a little over a week (while working at the same time) and then wondered why I didn’t get anything done. Good thing the internet was screwy the whole week so I really didn’t have anything to do.

Favourite Book

I’m not going to count rereads in this because you can be assured that if I’m rereading them, they are on my list of favourite books. Of the new books I’ve put down, I think my favourite book is split between Miss Lily’s Lovely Ladies, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe and Code Name Verity. All of them caught my attention immediately and I couldn’t put them down. And they’re all novels set in the past.

Least Favourite Book

Seduction and Surrender. I was reading it because it had been on my Kindle for a while and it was dreadful. Absolutely awful. I gave it one star and definitely do not recommend it.

Reading and Writing Updates

So, my readathons are at the top of this post. I still have to do the Emojiathon wrap up, but I did a combined wrap up of Because Dragons, Libraryathon and Read-o-rama and an Alphabethon Wrap Up.

I put 21 books on my June TBR and I read fourteen out of those books. I read more (obviously) but I strayed off my TBR by a lot.

I’m doing Camp Nanowrimo this month where I’ll be editing the novel I wrote in April. It’s the 2nd of the month and I’ve done nothing, so it’s going well so far.
