June 2016 TBR (+ a GIVEAWAY!)

I don't know of any readathons for June but I will be participating in the COYER Summer Vacation Challenge that starts half way through the month. I also have a Buddy Read that I will be reading at the beginning of the month.
I am going to be a little more lenient with my TBR this month as there are a lot of books that I want to read but might not be in the mood for and only a few that I need  to read.

2. School of the Dead by Avi 
3. The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis 
4. Age of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan

(These are books from my original yearly TBR list, book to movie adaptations, the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die List, etc)
1. The Tin Woodman of Oz  by L. Frank Baum CR
2. Lady Susan by Jane Austen
3. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

  1. I'm looking forward to Age of Myth based on that cover and some other blogger that he's a good author. Will be interested to see what you think when you get to it. And Wednesdays in the Tower is a cute MG read- I've read that one and Thursdays in the Castle (I think that's the title)- the new Friday one I have not.

    1. I do think Age of Myth is my most anticipated read for the month! I can't wait to start it! :)

  2. I just recently read Me Before You, though it's one I'd want to read for a long time. haha I now need After You!! I'll have to try and make room for that.


    1. I really enjoyed Me Before You! I just got After You from the library after having it on hold for months so hopefully I can squeeze it in before it's due!

  3. You definitely should read STARS ABOVE! I recently got the first book of the LUNAR CHRONICLES series, so I'm super excited to read them!

  4. I haven't read any of those books before, but would love to! :)

    1. They've all been pretty good! No duds this month! :)

  5. I've read 13 reasons why and I enjoyed it as much as one can with the subject matter.

    1. It does have some tough subject matter! :)

  6. You should read Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld. It's a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

    1. Thank you for the recommendation! I've been seeing that one around and I do love P&P so I'll add it to my tbr! :)

  7. I have not read any of those books but I would love to!
    Thank You for the chance

  8. I haven't read any of the books yet. :)
