I didn’t actually end up reading any classics In May, so this month I’m still going to try to read these books by The Bronte Sisters.
Hosted by Michelle over at Seasons of Reading, this week-long read-a-thon runs from June 1-7 and is sci-fi themed. I’m aiming for 2 sci-fi books during this week:
Hosted by Jordan from callmesensei14, the read-a-thon will be held from June 13-19 and includes two challenges – the reading challenge and the daily photo challenge. My TBR for the reading challenges are as below:
A fantasy with white on the cover
A fantasy book with and LGBT+ MC
Listen to a fantasy audiobook
A fantasy book with fire in the cover or in the title
A fantasy book that features mythological creatures
A month-long themed challenge hosted by Dylan, Sara and Naya. The goal is to complete four of the challenges mentioned in the list. I have chosen more than the 4 because it is a month-long challenge and my moods can vary.
Read a book about a marginalized group (doesn’t have to be sexuality based, can be religious based, race based, etc) – Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
Read a book that was gifted to you – Frogkisser by Garth Nix
1. Swap a book with a buddy (either use the google form linked above to request a buddy, find your own buddy online or in person)
2. Swap a book at a thrift store or library (donate a book and bring home another)
3. Read a book you swapped out for another book (one you set down because another book caught your interest)
4. Swap out format (if you normally read paperbacks, listen to an audiobook.)
5. Swap out genre (get out of your comfort zone!)
May was a really good Month. Overall I’m really happy with what I achieved – reading wise – this month. What books did you finish this month? What are you planning on reading in March, I would love to know. If you have your own Haul/Wrap-Up/TBR post, leave them down below as well.
