June 2020 Books

Around the beginning of each month, I take a look back at the books I read last month. Since most of the book reviews I post on this blog are from books I read months ago, this gives all my readers a good opportunity to see what I’ve been recently reading!

As a side note, you can see every book I am currently reading on both the Goodreads sidebar on this blog as well as on my Goodreads profile.

Books read in June: 18

In June I finished reading the six original American Girl book collections (two collections were read in May; I counted Molly’s collection, which I own as 6 individual books, as 1 book) and reread Megan Whalen Turner’s Queen’s Thief series in preparation for the new book coming out sometime this year.

Books read in May: 15 (25)

I couldn’t decide how to add up my book count this month, so I put two numbers. The one in parenthesis is the number of individual books total I read. The normal number is counting the 12 short, short books I read as only two books (so, a collection of six books bound together as one book). I repeat that system below in the reading stats.
