June 2013 Reading Recap

Here’s what I read in June:


1. Fool Moon by Jim Butcher
2. Lover Mine by J.R. Ward
3. Mad About Macarons! by Jill Colonna
4. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
5. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
6. Glitches by Marissa Meyer {novella}
7. Captive in the Dark by C.J. Roberts
8. Seduced in the Dark by C.J. Roberts
9. The Queen’s Army by Marissa Meyer {novella}
10. The Neverending Story by Michael Ende
11. The Ash-Born Boy by Victoria Schwab {novella}
12. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
13. Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen

Tons of books! Three of them are actually novellas but put together they equal a large chunk of book themselves. Even not counting the novellas, I finished off ten full books – way over what I would have expected of myself. Maybe averaging one a week? Sure. But two and a half a week? Wow. Go me, huh? Guess I better keep that pace up if I’m going to read 65 books this year (I’m a tad behind schedule already).

So in June, I managed to chalk up quite a lot of progress toward my goals!

  • Added 13 books to my total of 65 for the year (making 28 out of 65 done)
  • Added 2 to sub goal “read at least 5 books set in countries outside of the U.S.” (making 3 out of 5 done)
  • Added 1 to sub goal “read at least 5 books set in U.S. states I haven’t visited” (making 3 out of 5 done)
  • Added 3 to sub goal “read at least 5 books set in other worlds or on other planets” (making 3 out of 5 done)
  • Added 1 to sub goal “read at least 15 culinary books” (making 2 out of 15 done)
  • FINISHED my sub goal to “branch out to 3 new or under-read genres, reading at least 2 books in each”

I didn’t make any progress in my TBR pile, which is okay, because most of my unread books are fairly new. Gotta let them sit and age for a bit before they’re counted anyway, right? 🙂

I also didn’t make any progress on the sub goal to “read at least 4 books set in my home state(s) – Mississippi & Louisiana” simply because I haven’t gotten my hands on any recently. Bad bookworm, go to the local author section in the bookstore already!
