June TBR

I'm not planning on finishing too many books this month, just because of the sheer size of the first one that my loving boyfriend so graciously picked up for me at the library just last week. I also have a lot going on this month, I have graduation next Friday (woo!) and I leave for Europe on the 17th (double woo!). So this month, I'm only setting a goal of reading two books.

The Diviners by Libba Bray
As I mentioned in the intro, this book is an absolute monster read, coming in at around 578 pages. With everything I have going, I'll be surprised if I finish this by the end of the month. However, it's a book that I've heard several BookTubers rave about, so I figured I'd give it a go. Especially since it's set in my favorite time period. I'm a flapper at heart. 

Dreamland by Sarah Dessen
I've had this book in my collection since the start of my 9th grade year, when it was a required read. So, of course, I never even touched it. I've never been able to make it through a Sarah Dessen book, but from what I've been told, once you get through the slow beginnings, they turn out to be really worth the read. I sure hope that's the case.

If I miraculously finish both of these books this month, I will probably end up starting either the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin or The Selection series by Kiera Cass. I plan on reading a lot over this summer holiday, because I know I probably won't be able to read much when I start college in the fall (go Clemson!).

  2. Congrats on graduation!! Oh and Europe as well. That's fantastic!! How long are you staying in Europe for?

    I really want to read The Diviners. I'm thinking about purchasing it this month. It definitely seems like my type of read. I love books set in the 1920s!!
