June bookhaul & wrap-up

Once again, I bought way too many books. I don’t know, but it just seems to happen that way. It’s never planned. However, I’ve also gotten through quite a few books this month, so I believe that makes up for it, right?

Anyway, here’s the books I bought/received this month:

22. The Meek One by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (G)
23. Me and the Marquis by Tyburn Way (GR)

Yes, I know, that’s quite the number of books. Luckily, I’ve also read quite a few books. Those whose reviews are already online have been linked, if not; the reviews are coming up!

In order to make my TBR smaller this month, instead of growing it, I was ‘required’ to read 23 books; I’ve bought/received/won 23 books, one of which was a manual, which doesn’t go on my TBR; it’s automatically marked as read. Thus, 23 books in order to make my TBR smaller, let’s see how I did…

That’s not too bad right? I’ve got to say, this was my best reading month this far of the year. Percy Jackson was a reread, so it cannot count towards a TBR reduction, but the rest of them were all (still) on my TBR. I think I did quite well!

Favorites:
Adult novel: Imogene in New Orleans
YA novel: The Wrath & the Dawn
Children’s book: Briefgeheim

Which from the above books are your favorites? What books did you read last month? And how many did you buy? Any you would recommend me?

  1. That is a giant haul indeed! So cool. I counted 6 new books this month on my shelve. I’m expecting about the same amount. Shipping takes time! (And I live far away).

    One of the books I’m waiting for is The Wrath and the Dawn. I CANNOT WAIT.

    Congrats on winning so many books, eh. Lucky, lucky you. :p

    1. Shipping takes a while here too, and I don’t haul the books until I’ve actually got them, otherwise I’d have to keep track of too many things. Though at the moment nothings on route.
      I loved the Wrath and the Dawn. I hope you do too! ♡
