TBR & Wrap-Ups

June TBR + Reading Challenges

This month I plan on doing two different reading challenges! Emojiathon and BookSwapathon! All of the links are in the different sections below! Let’s just jump into it! I have a full bullet list of what I plan to read at the end!


Emojiathon was created by Dylanthereader5, Naya & Sarah. This readathon is for the whole month of June! Go to the Twitter @emojiathon to see when reading sprints and many other things are happening!

There are about 15 challenges. The goal is to complete 4 challenges. I have picked out 5, in hopes that I can complete 4 of them!  Click here to see the whole list of  challenges! Good luck if plan on participating!

Baby Emoji – Read A Book that has been released in 2016/2017

– I have picked Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliot. This was on my TBR for May. I didn’t get it around to it. It just came out in April, and I’m excited to get to it in June!

Annoyed Face – Read a book that you’re annoyed you haven’t read yet!

– For this I am going to try to read Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda. It has been on my TBR posts for the last two months. I just need to read it already!

Red Heart – Read a romance/contemporary!

– I plan to read What I Thought was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick. This was on my T5W of summer reads. It’ll also be my last Huntley Fitzpatrick book to get through.

Plane Emoji – Read a book that takes place in another country!

Summer Days and Summer Nights, The 12 Short Stories collection is what I am planning for this one. I wasn’t sure if any of the stories took place outside the USA, but I’m hoping so!

– For this, I plan to read Cheater’s Regret by Rachel Van Dyken. It’s the sequel/compainion book to Cheater and I can’t wait to get to it!

Reading Challenges:
1. Swap a book with a buddy (either use the google form linked above to request a buddy, find your own buddy online or in person)

  • For this I am Swapping with Amanda at ACourtofBooksandLove! She is going to be sending me Fruit Baskets or Orange Volume 1.

2. Swap a book at a thrift store or library (donate a book and bring home another)

  • I went on a journey to three Little Free Libraries near me. I posted about the journey on Instagram if you want to see more. But I came back with The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan. I have loved everything else that I read by him, so I’m excited to use this book to fulfill this challenge!

3. Read a book you swapped out for another book (one you set down because another book caught your interest)

  • Okay, so this is kind of controversial. But I’m setting down Crooked Kingdom to  read The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli. I’m not giving up on Crooked Kingdom, I love the characters to much for that. I’m just not in a adventure fantasy mood. So bring on more contemporary reads!

4. Swap out format (if you normally read paperbacks, listen to an audiobook.)

  • I usually read Paperbacks/Hardcovers. So I will be switching to an e-book to read Cheater’s Regret by Rachel Van Dyken or Ruckus by JL Shen!

5. Swap out genre (get out of your comfort zone!)

  • I’m going to be reading the Manga, Orange Volume 1, that Amanda sends me. Which is also a genre that I’ve never read. But I’m excited to try it out!

So all in all, here is the shortened list of books I want to read in June!

  • Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliot
  • Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
  • What I thought was True by Huntley fitzpatrick
  • Summer Days and Summer Nights Edited by Stephanie Perkins
  • Cheater’s Regret by Rachel Van Dyken
  • Orange Volume 1
  • The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
  • The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
  • Ruckus by JL Shen

Yep, that’s nine books! I’m excited. But I doubt that I will get to all of them. But we shall see in my wrap-up! I will be doing a wrap-up post for the BookSwapAthon once it ends as well! Wish me luck!

  1. The Book Swap seems pretty cool. I hope they do it again because I’d like to participate but I’m reading the rainbow and doing Emojiathon this month. I don’t think tacking on a third thing would be wise.

  2. After seeing your instagram post about little free libraries I looked up ones near me and ventured out into the world to find them. It was pretty cool. I did get the chance to swap some books which was nice.
