How is June over already?! This whole year is going way too fast. I haven’t had as much time for reading this year but I’m hoping to fit in more during the second half of the year than I did the first. This month I started reading ARCs again which is throwing my TBR a little bit but the review copies I read were pretty great so I’m glad I started fitting them in again. I also finally finished my 3rd read through of The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon which is book 5 of the Outlander series. Most of the books I read in June were review copies actually. In addition to reading some really good books this month, I also had a pretty great book haul. I’m really excited to read all of the books that I got. I’m not sure when I’ll read them because… never ending TBR… but they will be read at some point this year.

And now for a little check-in for my year-to-date stats. I like to keep track of all kinds of different things including genre and format. So far this year my most read genre is historical fiction which is making up 32% of the books I’ve read so far this year. The past few years I’ve been pretty heavy on the YA books but this year 88% of the books I’ve read so far have been adult books. On average I read 109 pages every day which is pretty great considering there are days I don’t read at all. I’m really looking forward to seeing how those numbers change as we go through the rest of the year.
