June 2018 Book Pick Ups

June 2018 Book Pick Ups

Not a lot of books this month. Which is good, cause my TBR shelves are already overflowing, as is my Kindle. I’ve been working hard to do a TBR take-down this year. For every one new book or ARC I’m trying to read one book that’s been on my TBR shelf for a least two years, and one book from my Kindle. (I know I have a problem… the very best bookish sort of problem.😊)

For Kindle:

The Neverland Wars
Why I Got It: It’s been on my TBR for a while and it was offered for free.
What I hope to get out of it: A fun YA Peter Pan re-imagining.

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles Book 1)
Why I Got It: It’s been on my Goodreads TBR forever, and I finally had a bunch of Amazon digital credits saved up so I bought it.
What I hope to get out of it: I’ve heard it said this is one of the best Cinderella re-tellings.

Dividing Eden
Why I Got It: Also’s been on my Goodreads TBR for a long time and it was on sale for $1.99.
What I hope to get out of it: A good fantasy read, although people seem to be split on it.

A Home for Leo
Why I Got It: My Kindle First pick for June.
What I hope to get out of it: Not sure, just none of the other seemed interesting.

New Books:

Roar: A Stormheart Novel
Why I Got It: The cover is beautiful and I’ve been hearing all sorts of good stuff about it from other reviewers.
What I hope to get out of it: A good YA Elemental Fantasy.

Where the Fire Falls: A Vintage National Parks Novel
Why I Got It:  Karen is a personal friend of mine, so I always pre-order her latest books.
What I hope to get out of it: A good historical romance with a national parks backdrop.

eBay:

The Toy Campaign (Spirit Flyer)
Why I Got It: We had book 1, and 3-6. Seemed silly not to have book 2.
What I hope to get out of it: We decided that we might never find this in “the wild.” so we opted to buy it from ebay so that we can read the series in order.

What we’re into:

Personal Reading – Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said
Reading With the Miss S – Little House in the Big Woods
Listening to – Innerwish 
Watching – Star Trek: The Original SeriesPrime Suspect: Tennison
