So June is over, which means that it’s time to look back and see how my intended TBR went – and if I actually did the unbelievable and stuck to my TBR!
If you don’t know what TBR it was – then I got my parents to choose my TBR last month from a section of categories I made up! You can find that post here: Parents Choose My TBR!
Here is my how my TBR went for June!
A classic book:
Mum – The Jungle Book
Dad – The Queen and I
Yay I managed to cross off both of these books! I’m so happy I managed to read them both as I really love The Jungle Book and my dad really wanted me to read The Queen and I! I loved both of them, but The Queen and I was definitely my favourite out of both!
An ARC chosen because of it’s title:
Mum – The Wicked Cometh
Dad – One Kind Man
I finished the second section too! WHO AM I??? I actually DNF’d The Wicked Cometh because I really didn’t get on with it, and found it very uninteresting. However I loved One Kind Man so much, I love this series!
An ARC chosen because of it’s cover:
Mum – Spare and Found Parts
Dad – The Wolf
I ended up DNF-ing The Wolf too because I decided about halfway that it really wasn’t my kind of book which is a shame! But Spare and Found Parts is one I’m hoping to get to soon!
A book chosen off the top of his head he knew was on my TBR:
Mum – The Colorado Kid
Dad – Truthwitch
CROSSED OFF ANOTHER WOO! I ADORED both of the books in this category, and especially Truthwitch – I didn’t think I’d like it as much as I did for some reason! The Colorado Kid was a tough book to find but was definitely worth it!
A Stephen King book:
Mum – Salem’s Lot
Dad – The Gunslinger
I started Salem’s Lot but didn’t get to finish it before the end of the month unfortunately!! However I really do intend to read them both by the end of the year!
A book from my downstairs bookshelf:
Mum – Book of Lies
Dad – Watership Down
I guess I wasn’t ready to cry my eyes out at Watership Down just yet?? BOOK OF LIES WAS JUST EVERYTHING OMG.
A book from the bookshelf outside my room:
Mum – A Conjuring of Light
Dad – How To Stop Time
I only managed to get around to reading one of these books, and naturally it had to be the one by the wonderful Matt Haig! I adore his writing and loved this book. I will definitely be reading ACOL soon though!
A book from the bookshelf inside my room:
Mum – Siege and Storm
Dad – The Hit
I managed to read The Hit, and I read it actually in one day because it was so good! But my time ran out before I got to Siege and Storm which was annoying!
I really hope you liked my TBR for last month, and you like these kind of posts and monthly challenges! Let me know your thoughts below!
Until next time,
