So there are all the books I have read in the last couple of months, April was one of the best reading months ever, a lot of really great books.  May wasn't quite as successful, especially towards the end but I hope to improve upon that in June.  I am really happy with the progress of my challenges so far though, nearly halfway through the year and most of my challenges are at near half if not over half way complete already! I am also happy to see that while I haven't exactly kept up with reading all the books I have purchased this year, I have at least read more from my TBR shelf than I have purchased, that is a win for me currently!

So time to figure out what I will be reading in June:

Sword and Verse
Loki's Wolves
Run to Ground
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Saga Vol. 6
The Princess Diarist
Keep Calm and Carry a Big Drink
Shadow and Bone
A Court of Wings and Ruin
Samurai Rising

So how has your reading been going lately? What books are you usually in the mood for as the weather warms up? I tend to read a lot more romance right as the weather warms up and then slip back into fantasy romance then high fantasy.
