I wanted to read at last 10 books, but to be fair, I am in a middle of a lot so combined it would equal well over 10! I am very proud of my reading month and hope to carry that energy into July!
Did you read any of these books? What was your favourite June read?
I only plan to take part in one readathon, but I may participate in 24 hour or weekend ones. We shall see!

I think I managed to fit my whole tbr into the readathon prompts! I am really impressed with myself. I think there are only 3 that didn’t quite make it.
- The Mismatch by Sara Jafari
- Adorable by Ida Marie Hede
- Conversations on Love by Natasha Lunn
As always, I have an ambitious tbr. I am actually quite hopeful because I am finally out of my slump! Who knows though, because Love Island is now back and that cuts a bit into my reading time as well as the Euros. BUT I AM HOPEFUL.
What are you most excited to read this month?
we are all stardust and stories…
