June is my Birthday month! June 2nd being my birthday, and that inevitably means a small pile of new books that I will WANT to dive into. So instead of my set TBR game I am allowing myself to have a Mood read month, where I can dive into what ever book I feel like.
There are a few exceptions! I have a very exciting blog project planned with Ellie @ ReadtoRamble. Look out for out announcement post on
Saturday 30th May
I can’t go a whole month with out doing a readathon can I? No I can’t – I will be taking part in Make Your Mythtaker and will announce my TBR on
Sunday 31st May
I also have a few ARCs to read as well that I am VERY VERY VERY excited about. I will also have all my reviews up as close to release date as possible so keep and eye out for them. And I am part of a couple of readalongs that I at least want to get started on the reads for them too. So this is my very loose TBR for June with just my eARCs and readalong books.
I would also love June to be a big month for my blog. I would really like to finally make it over 200 followers and I would really love your help to do that. So if you could please retweet I would be very very grateful. I am going to be doing a birthday giveaway details up on the 2nd of June and if I do make it to my golden numbers of 1000 followers on twitter or 250 blog followers I will be doing another give away for them too!
Farseer Trilogy #3
The Elderlingalong, run by @CatchUpBookClub aims to read Robin Hobb’s Realm of the Elderlings universe. I adored the first to books in Fitz’ story and the was Royal Assassin left off I just cant wait to dive into this one. I do have two whole months to get to this one with the live show not taking place until early August.
The Well of Ascension
This readalong run by @RoyallyBooked, is based on reading everything in Brandon Sanderson’s Cosmere! Another one tackling those big chunky books we all put off. I am still playing a little bit of catch up with this one. The live show for Well of Ascension in June 21st so I am hoping to squeeze in all 780 pages before then!
I have been realy fortunate to get granted some of my most anticipated reads as eARCs and I will be either reviewing (as one I am currently reading) or reading and reviewing these this month
The Court of Miracles
Release 4/6/20 (kindle) 18/6/20 – hardback
I am nearly finished this one and I am really enjoying it. I am not going to say more until my review. This was unfortunately pushed back but only by a couple of weeks so the physical release will be the 18th while the ebook release will remain the 4th.
The Descendant of the Crane
Paperback release 16/6/20
I have had this on my radar for ages and i really dont know why I have put off picking it up. But as the paperback is due to release its the perfect time to grab this amazing sounding Chinese inspired fantasy
The Angel of the Crows
You know all they have to do is put in a magical London and I am going to read that book. This one is an alternate magic filled London in the time of Jack the Ripper! Yes please.
A Declaration of the rights of Magicians
AHHH! I am still screaming with excitment at receiving this eARC! H.G. Parry wrote The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep, which I also had an eARC of and ADORED!!!! It was one of the best books I have read this year and I keep recommending it to anyone that will listen. Please check out my review for that one (here) so when it was announched her second book would be hitting shelves in June I was ready and waiting.
So that is all my must read commitments for this month apart from my #Mythtaker TBR and my secret project with Ellie both which will be announced in the next few days. Also dont forget to look out for my Giveaway post next Tuesday!
