It’s hard to believe that it’s already June! With pool reading and warm weather, I hope to be able to knock a few books off my TBR this month (as well as find a job). I pushed TBR Tuesday back two days this month because I was so busy I didn’t really have time to decide on what to read, but without further ado here are some of my hopeful picks for this month:
- The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh – I’m in the middle of reading this one right now and am absolutely loving this retelling. I’m planning on finishing it later this week and may just have to dive right into the next one.
- And I Darkenby Kiersten White – with the conclusion to the trilogy coming out next month, it is high time that I read this series. One of the side characters is also gay which makes this the perfect read for Pride month!
- The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – An ARC of this ginormous book just recently came into my possession. Although I foresee this book taking me longer than a month to read, I’m hoping to start it in the next few weeks!
For the Classic of the Month I’m hoping to read:
- The Odyssey by Homer – An adventure story that I still need to read! Two of the books high on my TBR are Circe by Madeline Miller and Ulysses by James Joyce, both of which draw on the mythology of this classic.
Looking to keep the list shorter this month because I’m definitely an impulse reader in the summer, and I’m anticipating the job search will take up a lot of my time!
