Book Haul – June

Book Haul

Now since I am moving I am trying not to buy so many books. Also, steam had a sale this month so my money went to games instead :P But the two books I did buy were from when I was walking past a book store and just could not help myself. So this is a pitifully small list but hey, I should be moved by August and that happens to be my birthday month so hopefully I can just go crazy with the buying then!

June Wrap Up + July TBR

wrapup

So I fell into a huge slump this month. I did my read-a-thon and then nothing. I just wanted to watch TV and play games so thats what I did. I became bored quickly but still didn’t feel like reading. As I write this post however I have picked a book up so hopefully that means the slump is over.

I don’t plan on doing AYearAThon this month since I don’t want to read the theme and pushing myself to do so will just make my slump worst. But since I didn’t read very much last month, my TBR is pretty much the same so sorry for the repeat guys!

AYearAThon – June

Yearathon

AYearAThon is a read a thon that happens each month throughout the year with different themes. You can find the goodreads group here. June’s theme runs from the 1st-7th. There doesn’t seem to be a specific time in which this starts, so I am starting the clock at midnight my time. This months theme is:

Finish/Catch Up on a Series

I am SOO eager for this months theme. There are a number of books I want to read that I have been saving for this months theme. I know at least I am not going to read at least one day during this week because its my mothers birthday, but I am hoping I can at least keep up the four book streak I have been on for the last couple of read-a-thons. The books I hope to finish are:

AYearAThon – June

ayearathonimage

AYearAThon is a read a thon that happens each month throughout the year with different themes. You can find the goodreads group here.

I have decided since I have been meaning to pick up books by this author cause people talk about them all the time that I should at least give this months theme ago. June’s theme runs from the 2-8, and since there doesn’t seem to be a specific time in which this starts, I am starting the clock at midnight my time. This months theme is:

Rick Riordon

Since I know I have to work during this read-a-thon I’m going to keep my goals really simple and just try and read the first three (maybe four if I am super lucky) books in his Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.

So yes, if you are participating to let me know so we can keep track of each other and give support :)

Click on the Book Depository link in the side bar to get yourself any of these books.
