No matter what else happens, it has to have been a good reading month when you get a 5/5 read during the month, and I even managed to write a couple of reviews as well! Go me!
The books I read in June were:
Why Shoot a Butler? by Georgette Heyer 3.5/5
In the Woods by Tana French 4/5
To Beguile a Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt 4/5
Imitation in Death by J D Robb 4/5
Full Moon Rising by Keri Arthur 4.5/5
Betrayed by P C Cast and Kristin Cast 4/5
The Bridegroom by Linda Lael Miller 4/5
A Fatal Waltz by Tasha Alexander 4/5
Made to be Broken by Kelley Armstrong 4.5/5
A Hollow Crown by Helen Hollick 4/5
The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley 5/5
Sin and Scandal in England by Melody Thomas 3/5
The French Mistress: A Novel of the Duchess of Portsmouth and King Charles II by Susan Holloway Scott 4/5
I don't think I have made a lot of progress on my challenges this month.
I am still working my way towards completion of the 100+ Challenge. At the end of June I have completely 74 books so far this year, so three quarters of the way there.
I did manage to finish a couple of challenges though. The first was The Victorian Challenge. The three books I read for that were The Water Horse by Julia Gregson, Silent in the Sanctuary by Deanna Raybourn and, this month, A Fatal Waltz by Tasha Alexander.
The second challenge that I completed this month was the Pub 09 challenge. The idea of this challenge was to read 9 books that were being published this year. Both The Bridegroom and The French Mistress fit this criteria, so another challenge done! (Completely irrelevant question warning! Am I the only person who always wants to type bridgegroom instead of bridegroom?)
There is one other challenge that is now complete and that is the I Suck At Challenges challenge! Thanks to Chris from Book-a-rama for coming up with such a fun idea!
I have to say that my current challenges section on my sidebar is looking decidely bare now. Maybe I need to go and find some new challenges to join in on. Any suggestions?
