June Reads in Review and End of Summer Reading Blitz

I can't believe June is over already. I loved the Summer Reading Blitz hosted by Shauna at Readings and Ruminations. Thank you Shauna. The goal was to read 30 books in 30 days and I read book 30 on day 30. :) So here is my list of books I read in June below.

So far I have only read one book in July. I think I was burned out a little. My favorites for June are in bold. I pretty much liked everything I read. Rose in Bloom was a little harder to get through than when I read it when I was younger. I have a few issues with the silent series by Deanna Raybourn that I have not addressed yet in a review. I finished the Victorian Reading challenge in June. I failed the Childhood Reading Challenge in June because I did not pay attention to the deadline date. Overall June was a good month. Hopefully I will be able to pick up the pace for July. I have a lot of books to read and a lot of back reviews that need to be done for reading challenges. :)

I haven't read any of those books. It sounded like a good challenge though I totally get why you wouldn't want to read for ages.

This would be quite good to do for reducing some of your to-read list, I know it would help me.

Also, question did you have to read a book in a day or was it over the 30 days? And if it was one book one day then did affect the book for you? I sometimes find for some books I can't read it fast otherwise it effects the enjoyment.

Anyway...that's all

It was not one book a day thank God because I would have failed. I tend to read more on the weekends. So it was just read 30 books in the month of June. I enjoyed all of them but I was feeling the crunch that last night. lol :)
