June Books

 I had a really good month with 47 books. Part of that number was helped by the fact that I decided to clear out my reading list by reading some of my shorter books. In addition to reading 11 graphic novels this month, 13 of my books were under 300 pages (and 2 of those were even under 100 pages). I also finished several series I started years ago (IrredeemableRed QueenPrincess Jellyfish, and Assassination Classroom). My binge of The Dragonian series which started right at the end of May also ended in June. It was a productive reading month.


26 of my books were young adult. My most-read genres were contemporary, fantasy, and romance.


My favorite books were Archie, Vol. 5 - Mark Waid  and Children of Blood and Bone: The OrÏsha Legacy (Children of OrÏsha) - Tomi Adeyemi. My least favorite was Leah on the Offbeat - Becky Albertalli.
