June TBR

This is the first time that I have ever done anything like this as I normally plan what I am going to read on a spreadsheet and change it as things evolve over the month. But after a couple of positive comments from other bloggers, I thought that I would reveal what is on the TBR for June. I have split them into sections, Blog Tours for those that I have to read for a particular date, library books that are due back or have reservations on them. Then onto review copies and a section that I have called wishful thinking as I would love to get to them but with everything else going on, it probably won’t happen!

    Ooh, I’ve got Rough Magic (review copy for Shiny New Book) and Bird Therapy (did the Unbound thing, my name’s in the back!!) to read this month, too. Hopefully.

      I did the pledge of support too. I am on the page before you for Bird Therapy!

  2. Wow, that’s one heck of a month you’ve got coming up! Happy reading!

      Thank you. It has been a slow start so far, so I know I won’t get to them all.
