June Round Up


As June draws to a close I can see the end of the school year in sight and am willing it to get here sooner. I know it is terrible to wish your time away, but I am looking forward to relaxing, something I will be doing almost as soon as school finishes as I am off to sunnier climes at the end of July. June has been a very strange month; after the craziness of May I feel as though I haven’t done anything exciting in June. I am sure that isn’t the case and I know I have had some lovely weekends, both here and back with my family, but I feel as though nothing big has really happened. This is probably a good thing after May and it is certainly good to have had some relaxing weekends. And the best bit about these relaxing weekends is the amount of reading I get done.

June has been a good month for reading. I completed by book for The Classics Club Spin, took part in Angela Carter Week and ticked two books/years off Reading the Twentieth Century. In June I read the following:

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen – this was my Classics Club Spin book and counts towards this challenge

Black Venus and half of the stories in The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter – these counted towards the Angela Carter Week

A Storm of Swords: Part One by George R. R. Martin – this counts towards Reading the Twentieth Century

Journey’s End by R. C. Sheriff – I finished this this evening and have yet to write a post on it, however it also counts towards by Reading the twentieth Century challenge.

I am very much looking forward to July and have a few books I know I need to read this month, such as The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time a reread I am debating teaching and I must read something from my TBR Pile as I have been slacking this month. Other than that I envisage lots of holiday reads, especially as I am taking part in #sunathon.

  1. Austen and and George R.R. Martin, delightful! Sense and Sensibility isn’t one of my favourites, but definitely a book worth the reading.

  2. You have had a busy and varied reading month, I do wish there were more hours in the day. Recently the only time I seem to have for reading is bedtime!

    1. I think reading at bedtime is how I spent the first five months of the year so I’m happy I finally have some time to actually read during the week and at weekends.
