June TBR | When the Mood Strikes

Hello, my friends! I hope all is well and y’all are taking care of yourselves out there.

I think my posting this TBR ten days after the beginning of June is testament to my current mood. Though I’d usually love to devour books day by day, I’m not exactly in the mood to do so, especially considering what’s been going on in the world today.

So, my theme for this month is simple: Mood Reading.

I’d been reading this way most of last year, just reading whatever and whenever. A little break from a set TBR is most welcome at the moment. I probably won’t be reading as much as I have been in the past three months.

There are some books I have in mind that I might like to pick up this month, though nothing is guaranteed.

Possible Rereads

I postponed rereading this series last month because I thought it would be better to take the opportunity to read new sci-fi books while I was in the sci-fi mood. I swapped out the series for Renegades, The Empress, and Starsight. All of them were amazing, but I AM really missing Red Rising. So I hope to reread it this month, possibly around my birthday, as a treat to myself.

Possible Classic Reads

My mood might be a little wonky right now, but I’m still determined to read a classic every month. This book is hella short, so I think this would be the perfect choice. I won’t have to focus too much on a larger book and I think I would be able to get it done before a mood shift.

Just Finished

A Harry Potter mood had struck me, so I went on to read the next book in the series. This one was great! The ending was absolutely heartbreaking. I, of course, was aware of what would happen (since I’ve seen the movies), but it still hurt to read.

It’s June and the beginning of summer, so I thought it would be fitting to read a lighthearted, fluffy contemporary. I usually would be drowning myself in cutesy contemporary romances and realistic fiction, but I’m not really in the mood. Maybe July. For now, this will do. It’s sweet and fun (as expected) and has gotten me more into the baking mood!

I put a lot of books on my TBR, but honestly, I don’t think I’ll get to most of them. HP took me six days to get through, which is highly unusual. We’ll just have to see what books I end up reading. There are other books in my library that need some attention, so maybe this month will be their month!

Β‘Que serΓ‘, serΓ‘!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Until next time πŸ’•

  1. I think it’s great that this month you let yourself be carried away by your mood, sometimes it’s the best option. Although I have an established TBR, I’ll try to do the same, so I don’t know what I going to actually be reading, but I hope to enjoy lol. Sending you all my Iove & hope you have the best June, lovely ❀️❀️❀️

    1. I’ve heard it’s a fantastic book! It’s been on my shelves for a while, since I don’t usually read that genre, but since I’ve been branching out lately, I think now is the best time to get to it!

      Happy June! 😁

    1. It was a really sweet ending. I’m looking forward to see Netflix finish out the film series πŸ˜€

      I don’t really have much idea what’s it’s about either LOL. I bought it on a whim, so fingers crossed that it’s good!


    1. I’ve started reading a few pages and it’s not too bad at all. I hope it stays strong throughout! And it feels very relevant to what’s going on today πŸ™‚ Thank you! Happy reading ❀

  2. What great books you have on your TBR, and all the covers look so pretty! Why am I taking so long to getting around to reading Celeste Ng’s book? Thanks for the reminder to fast track Little Fires yo the top of my list! A Song Below Water looks good. A story about a siren? Sign me up!

    1. Oh it’s taking me forever to get to Little Fires too, lol; I’ve had it for nearly two years now and I haven’t read past the first chapter. It seems like a heavy book and I’m scared haha. But I know it’s good! Hopefully we can both get around to it this year πŸ˜€ Why are sirens so interesting!? One of my favorite fantastical creatures really ❀


  3. Ahh yes to mood reading. Sometimes all we need is to let our moods carry us away ahah. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on A Song Below Water, that one sounds AMAZING I’m so excited to read it πŸ™‚
    Happy reading πŸ™‚

    1. I’ll be posting up on it sometime this week! I will admit it didn’t quite meet my expectations but I hope that you enjoy it still! There’s a lot to appreciate πŸ˜€

  4. I totally understand mood reading! It’s why I never can make TBRs for myself! I usually do have some idea of what I want to read each month, but whether I get to them or not relies heavily upon my mood that day!

    I read Little Fires Everywhere last year and I thought it was superb! If you decide to pick it up, I hope you love it as well! And I read Of Mice and Men a few years back and I really enjoyed it! It may be short, but it packs a punch anyways!

    1. Last year I read almost exclusively by mood. I was the same with not being able to form a solid TBR. There wasn’t a point haha. But I’ve been a bit better at them this year. This month got me feeling a bit differently, though. I’m already reading far less than usual. And far slower too. But I’m okay with that. Sometimes mood reading is for the best, ya know?

      Both have been on my TBR for so long! I really hope I can get to them someday. I know both are regarded pretty highly!

    1. I got to most of them, and I definitely agree they were interesting! I recommend Red Rising most of all but HP is always a good choice (despite Rowling) and Jo and Laurie was a really sweet read 😊
