I’m back! After a much needed and untold break, I’m finally feeling up to blogging again. Unfortunately life got very crazy during April and May and I definitely just needed to take a little time off. I hope to put together a wrap up for the last few months, but for now, I have my June TBR!
For Dobby goes to Pride, there are eight prompts to get Dobby ready to go to Pride. As you read for the game, you get to dress Dobby in different articles of clothing as well as decorate a background.

This month for Reading Rivalry, I’m on Team Red, White, and Royal Blue! There are some amazing criteria this month and I’m so excited for them all. Several of my books for June overlap with what I planned to read for Dobby Goes to Pride for TBR and Beyond.

The final reading challenge I plan to participate in during June is the Olympic Games hosted by Ishi Time on YouTube. This is a readathon revolving around Camp Half-Blood and the Greek Gods and Goddesses. I picked Aphrodite as my team! For Aphhrodite, I have five mandatory challenges to complete with one of those being choose a prompt that honors Ares and then three advanced challenges.
- Read a romance – Driving Me Crazy by Lisa Suzanne
- Beautiful Cover – Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
- Strong, Independent female character – The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen
- A Classic – Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
- Red Cover – A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
- Shorter than 200 pages – Aquicorn Cove by Katie O’Neill
- Published in the Last Five Years – Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
- Blue Cover – A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
During the month, I will most likely read other books during the month as well, but definitely plan to read the above books. Many overlap between the various different challenges I’m participating in so that will be helpful when it comes to wanting to read other books during June.
What’s on your June TBR?
