May Recap and June Goals 2013

I can’t believe it’s nearly June! I nearly forgot to write this post, actually, because I really didn’t think it was the end of the month yet.
As always, everything written in this post is correct at the time I was writing it so I may have read more books when you’re reading this.
This month I read…
Rebel Heart by Moira Young
Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
Before I Die by Jenny Downham
Pretty Bad Things by C.J. Skuse
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K Rowling
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K Rowling 
The Runaway Queen by Cassandra Clare and Maureen Johnson- NOVELLA
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Crossing the Line by Katie McGarry- NOVELLA

So I read fourteen books this month. 
My four favourites were….
1. The Harry Potter series- I’ve decided to put all of the books into one category because this list would be very long otherwise!
2. Before I Die by Jenny Downham

June Goals

In June I’d like to read more than 10 books. I’ll hopefully have more time as it’s the last school term and so I’m keeping my fingers crossed I won’t be loaded with homework.
I’m going to try and read:
1. ACID by Emma Pass
2. Flyaway by Lucy Christopher
3. After Eden by Helen Douglas- FOR REVIEW
4. Parallel by Lauren Miller- FOR REVIEW

I’m also going to try and film more vlogs because I’ve really enjoyed the two that I filmed this month. 
Embracing My Inner Geek has been a bit of a fail this month. I’m not sure if I’ve even posted any! I’m going to start brainstorming ideas and will hopefully get a few up.
UKYA week is also coming up and will be running from the 17th to 23rd of June. I’ve got some great posts planned and am hoping that you’ll all enjoy the posts.
What were your favourite books of May? What are your goals for June? Let me know in the comments below!

    14 books! That’s amazing. My goal for this month is to reach 150 followers and to read The Harry Potter Books. I hope you reach your goals.

    I’m SO GLAD you loved the Harry Potter series! And I hope you enjoyed Pretty Bad Things by C.J. Skuse – that’s the same author as Dead Romantic, right?

      It is! All three books of hers-Pretty Bad Things, Rockoholic and Dead Romantic- are hilarious and definitely worth reading. 🙂

    I haven’t really read anything in May other than books in school. D: D: But hopefully I’ll be able to read loads in June!
