I have decided to separate book and blog stats, mainly to make the posts shorter. So this post will be all about books (and movies and TV shows); the ones I’ve read, the ones I’ve bought, the ones I want to read next month and the book jar! June was a very good month for me, I read some nice books and started rereading my most favourite series in the world again (guess which one) and I FINALLY read the book jar book for this month! Anyway, here are the book stats for June!
- All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill – This was the book I ordered last month but that hadn’t arrived yet. I’ve read it already and I really loved it! Time travel, yay!
- The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski – I have heard so many things about this book that I just had to order it along with The Murder Complex.
- The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan – I had finished the second book in the series on my e-reader and decided I wanted to buy the physical copies of the rest of the series (will also be buying the first two books of course) so I went to my local bookstore because I knew they had some HoO books last time I checked. And they had it! Not the cover I wanted but I’m not too bothered about that!
- The House of Hades by Rick Riordan – My friend told me to take the fourth book of the HoO series with me as well because the third ended with SUCH a cliffhanger (which I already knew). So, because the book store had THoH as well I bought it too, yay!
- The Murder Complex by Linsay Cummings – I pulled this title out of my book jar at the end of May and thought ‘yes this month I am DEFINITELY going to read the book from my book jar’! I ordered it, but then I was afraid it might not arrive in time – but it did and I finished it within two days! Wooooop!
- Foretold by Rinda Elliott (kindle) – I got a new credit card this month and I wanted to see if it worked on Amazon (seeing as it’s a prepaid CC, where you have to transfer money onto before it works); I bought Foretold because it’s about Norse mythology and I LOOOOOOVE Norse mythology!
I have four more books that I’ve ordered this month but that haven’t arrived yet so I’ll just add them to my July post. I also received two extra books with my Book Depository order that I hadn’t ordered at all. I don’t know what to do with them seeing as they are non-fiction books that don’t interest me at all. Oh well…
