June’s To Be Read List

I have a few books I would like to get through during June (I think I can, I think I can)

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

On this list is …

Carrie by Stephen King – This will be my first Stephen King and horror read, I am so excited. 

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin – I have already started this book, I am going to aim to finish it this month so I can start back on Tools of Titans! Need all the self help I can get. 

Hunting Humans by Elliot Leyton – This book is for school, however it is definitely going to be an interesting read since it revolves around serial killers. 

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman – I have been waiting to read this book F O R E V E R. 

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – This book is all over my social media feeds, safe to say that I am intrigued. 

*Not pictured: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald- I am currently reading this on my kobo, I use this most at the gym. It is about time I read this classic. 

Any suggestions for July?

I have always wanted to read Stephen King, I actually have had Bag of Bones home for a while, however I was always recommended to read The Shining and Carrie first. A Monster Calls has been alllll over my social media feeds, it has a lot of hype and I hope it lives up to my expectations.

I have never read horror, and as of 2017 I haven’t read much fantasy. When ordering these books – because there was a sale – I figured it was the perfect opportunity to add these genres to my TBR.

They all also tie in with my ongoing theme of reading books that are movies – more about that later ..


Have you read any of these? What did you think?

Book Buying Ban – June

I like to set goals every month, this one not only fits my love for reading — but it also helps my budget.

I have 80 books waiting to be read

Here is an just a few of my TBR!IMG_5959

With such a large TBR list, in the long term I would like to average 1-2 books a month IF that is even necessary. That way I can have a healthy budget for books, the long term plan is to go a full month without buying a book, then the first of each month I can either a) buy ONE new book or b) purchase TWO used from a bookstore. 

Stay tuned for mid June, I’ll post a healthy budget plan for book buyers !! 

IMPORTANT: I am waiting for my book order to come in therefore I will have to post a book haul in June, BUT I will clarify I did not buy them this month.
