June TBR & Goals

Do I dare try to set a TBR list for this month? Usually, my reading picks up a bit with the summer, but this year I actually don’t anticipate spending any more time reading than I did in the first half of the year. I’ve never taken classes over the summer before (except for one random class in high school), so this will be a completely new experience. I’m planning another post soon talking about the classes I’m taking next toward my MLS. Today’s post is all about the goals I’m setting for myself this month and the books I might get to read.

Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge

Every year Tarissa @ In the Bookcase hosts the Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge in June. Seeing as LMA is my favorite author, I love everything about this challenge! It’s an excuse for me to reread some classic favorite feel-good comfort books, learn about newer adaptations, and generally talk and read about one of my favorite subjects. This year, with school and work being the way that they are, I don’t have time to commit to a dedicated TBR list for this challenge. However, I don’t want it to pass by without at least acknowledging it and attempting to fit in one relevant book. I’ve listed a few I’m considering below. Which one I read will be determined by what is available at my library first and looks like a fast-paced read. There are also a few other, unrelated books I am hoping to read this month, and reading for school is my top priority this month, but whatever the outcome, I’m glad that this challenge has come!

June TBR List

Meg and Jo (The March Sisters, #1)
  1. Finish this carryover: Hope in Times of Fear by Timothy Keller
  2. Read this new release: Discernment (Legacy Chronicles #3) by Lauren H. Salisbury
    • See more about this book and its release tour here!
  3. Participate in the Louisa May Alcott Reading Challenge by reading one of the following:
    • Meg & Jo by Virginia Kantra (a modern retelling, sort of?)
    • The Other Alcott by Elise Hooper (historical fiction about Louisa’s real-life sister, May, who inspired the character of Amy)
    • Jo by Kathleen Gros (graphic novel modern retelling)
    • and/or rewatch any of the movie versions of Little Women

Other June Goals

  • Don’t get behind with school
  • Share a blog post at LEAST once a week, hopefully twice or more
  • Post on bookstagram 4 times
  • celebrate my cousin’s wedding (without getting behind on schoolwork)
  • Enjoy the Summer Reading rush at the library
    • Make more fun displays and decorations for this

Are you taking classes, attending or teaching a camp, or participating in any sort of educational venture this summer? Or is there a hobby you’re pouring into over the next few months? However you’re spending your summer, I hope you enjoy it and learn something new.

Until the next chapter,

  1. You’ve chosen a lovely booklist for the Alcott challenge this month.

    That’s wonderful that you have a wedding to go to this month. I have a cousin who just got engaged earlier this month, and I expect a wedding to follow soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wishing you great success with ALL your goals during the summer!

    1. Thank you, Tarissa! I’m about halfway through Meg & Jo and enjoying it, although it is very different from Little Women. Best wishes for your summer goals, too!
