Welcome to my Monthly Reading Review.
This post is my attempt to keep track of how I’m doing with my reading challenges and resolutions.

MY READ OF THE MONTH
I’ve been reading Lonesome Dove by Larry McMutry most of this month, so even though I haven’t finished the book yet it should probably have a mention here.
My total for this challenge is currently 10 books read. So far I’ve read:
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
The Six by Luca Veste
Hercule Poirot’s Christmas (Poirot #20) by Agatha Christie
Stoker’s Wilde by Steven Hopstaken and Melissa Prusi
The Poison Song (The Winnowing Flame #3) by Jen Williams
The Colour of Magic (Discworld #1) by Terry Pratchett
Dracul by Dacre Stoker and J. D. Barker
The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg
A Different Kind of Evil (Agatha Christie #2) by Andrew Wilson
Darkness There: Selected Tales by Edgar Allan Poe
Beat the Backlist Bingo is making another appearance this year. I have no idea how many categories I’ll manage to complete but it’s a little extra to add to my challenge.
Borrowed it for the cover – The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern. I wanted to read this from the moment I first heard about it, but I’m using it for this category because I never got tired of looking at the cover. I also think this may be a contender for the category of a top 10 read of the year.
Released in the 2010’s – The Six by Luca Veste
Written before 2010 – Hercule Poirot’s Christmas (Poirot #20) by Agatha Christie
Wish you had read it sooner – Stoker’s Wilde by Steven Hopstaken and Melissa Prusi
Book you never finished before – The Colour of Magic (Discworld #1) by Terry Pratchett
One word title – Dracul by Dacre Stoker and J. D. Barker
Genre you never/rarely read – The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg
Book with less than 200 pages – Darkness There: Selected Tales by Edgar Allan Poe
I’ve read 12 books so far this year.
- My Beat the Backlist challenge is ongoing. So far I’ve read 10 books. Hopefully I’ll be able to add at least a couple more to this total.
- I’m continuing my monthly update posts to record my reading and any challenge progress I’ve made.
So concludes June’s Reading Review. See you again next month.
