June reading…AKA–wishful thinking

It’s now June 5th and I haven’t read ANYTHING yet so this might be an ambitious goal I’m setting for myself.

If I do manage to get back in my reading groove – I read fast so it’s certainly possible.

Here’s the plan for the books I want to read for June:

For Review:

Goldfish by Nat Luurtsema – looks like a quick read and sounds summery

Stars So Sweet by Tara Dairman – I adore this mid- grade series but it doesn’t come out until July. I want to get right to it but this one might get moved to July.

Poison or Protect: A Delightfully Deadly Novella by Gail Carriger – this one is likely to be a slam dunk for me since it’s a novella and I already scheduled a review for 6/20

From Fake to Forever by Jennifer Shirk – totally forgot I requested this and need to read it first since it’s out TODAY

The Make-Ahead Kitchen by Annalise Thomas - I actually already read this one and have a tour post scheduled for the 20th but I have a few recipes I want to test first.

For Fun:

If I Was Your Girl by Meridith Russo, The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris by Jenny Colgan, and Dietland by Sarai Walker

So that's the plan! I'll probably go off the grid and read totally different books but honestly if I read anything I'll be happy. I just haven't felt like reading lately. But we have a tropical storm coming and it will be pouring for two days straight so it might be the thing to jump start me.

  2. Gosh K, I do no think I shall ever get over how cute your blog is! And i love your little puppies over there in your Instagram feed (although, pfft, I'm pretty sure they're not puppies?) teehee! And that tropical storm time does sound like an awesome way to catch up on some books! Stay safe girl! <3 :)

    1. Thanks! I like it - even though all the whiteness of the background scares me sometimes lol

      Nah they're all older 14, 13, 10 & the cat is 12 but they're young at heart ;-)

  5. The weather has been killing me so I've been reading slower than usual. I know how it feels. At least it looks like you have a great goal. Oh I've been wanting that Carriger book but I haven't found it for review. Sounds like I need it now. :)

    1. I got a review request and it's self pub so maybe it will end up on Netgalley??

  7. I didn't even know about Gail Carriger's novella, but I'm excited to read it! Is this the same Preshea we already know and dislike? I hope so. Also, I obviously need The Make-Ahead kitchen with my schedule. Let me know when you test those recipes.

    1. It's self pub and I *think* it's the same character.

      I've only tried one recipe so far (beef stroganoff) and it was really good. I have a few more to try.

  8. Loving the new look to your blog.

    Some great June reads, The cover of Stars So Sweet certainly captured my attention as did Goldfish but for a whole other reason - such an intriguing title, I'd simply have to pick it up if only to know more.

  9. Aww, your Collies are gorgeous! We always had Collies growing up as kids too, such beautiful natured dogs and surprisingly skinny under all that hair. I've got a Cavalier now who's even more pampered.

    I've been having to force myself to read too Karen, nothing worse than a review slump for a blogger. No doubt you'll be flying through these beauties in no time <3

    1. I wouldn't even call it a slump...or at least not a typical one. It's just pure laziness. I don't feel like doing anything lol

  12. I really do want to read If I Was Your Girl, so I hope you get a chance to check it out. I hear good things! Hopefully the bad weather will entice you to start reading a bit more. We all get in those ruts sometimes.

    1. I'll probably read that last since I hear it's intense. I need to stick with the lighter stuff while I'm so easily distracted but I'm really looking forward to reading it.

  13. I haven't heard of any of the books you'd like to read in June, Karen. I hope you'll get your groove back, AND that you'll enjoy all of these.
    Have a fantastic week and happy reading.
