June TBR


Y'all, I can't stop reading.

I don't know what it is, but there's something about being in Florida that makes me read more. Is it the feeling of being relaxed? Maybe there's something in the water here. I don't know. But what I do know is that before even writing up this TBR post, I've already flown through the first two books on this list... in just four days. Yikes. 

Seeing as I've gone ahead and read two of these books, I figured I'd better get on with posting this TBR post. Though, I should probably say, this is likely not going to be all the books I'm reading this month. If I'm already 2 books in within the first week of June, I'm thinking that it'll only get worse from here!

Here are (some of) the books I'll be reading in June...

Confessions of a Prairie Bitch by Alison Arngrim - Following my trend of Little House on the Prairie obsessions (which you can read about in last month's favourites post), I just had to get my hands on this memoir by the actress who brought the show's most delightful villain, Nellie Oleson, to life - Alison Arngrim. Just by reading the title and seeing the cover of this book, I knew I'd be in for a treat. Like, come on. "Confessions of a Prairie Bitch". Who wouldn't be interested?! 

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell - I've been a big fan of Rainbow Rowell for a while now after reading "Eleanor and Park" and "Attachments" earlier this year. I think Rainbow is a fantastic author for both YA and adult fic but I especially loved how she brought her characters to life in "Eleanor and Park", making them believable as real-life teenagers. I never was interested in "Fangirl" for some reason (never quite put my finger on it), but decided to pick this up on a whim after hearing for the 1,000th time how good it supposedly is. 

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell - So, admittedly, this was a last min addition. After I finished "Fangirl" the other day (yes, I read that long ass book in a couple days), I decided I needed to get my hands on "Carry On". If you're not familiar, "Fangirl" is essentially about a girl who writes fanfiction about a fictional novel series, "Simon Snow". "Carry On" is a spinoff, about the characters of "Simon Snow". Confused yet? Anyway, I'm very excited to read this as I've learned to never doubt the awesomeness of Rainbow Rowell. 

How to Stop Time by Matt Haig - I'm very, very interested in this book. Think the movie "About Time", except this time around it's a 40-something-year-old man who, thanks to a rare condition, has been alive for centuries. As in, he's walked alongside some of the great historical figures. So, of course, he teaches history. But he meets a woman who seems very interested in him - which is a problem, as falling in love is strictly prohibited in his world. What's a guy to do? I can't wait to find out. 

What are you guys reading in June?
