  1. It comforts me whenever I see you (and other bloggers) haven’t read like a million and one books during the month because it’s rare that I have a month where I read more than 4-5 anymore. On the same note, I’m definitely going to check out that post on why it’s okay to NOT read 100% of the time. Thanks for sharing, Nori!

    • Awwww don’t worry about it Sierra! No one has time to read 24/7 (believe me, I wish I did, but it’s just not realistic).

  2. Sad to see some DNFs up there. Most of the books on my recap fall into the same category. *whispers* But I’m glad it’s not just me this month.

  3. I can’t believe it’s June. 2016 is just flying by!

    How did you like GOLDFISH? It sounds like it could be very good.

    Good luck meeting all your challenge goals!! Looks like you’re doing a great job so far! Keep up the great work!

    By the way, I love the layout of your wrap up. My favorite section is “In the Blogosphere”. I like seeing a glimpse at what’s on your radar.

    Have an awesome June!!

    • I thought Goldfish was cute! And thank you so much!!! I’m so happy to hear you enjoy reading my wrapups. I love putting together the In the Blogosphere section 🙂

  4. I’m super excited to read The Loose Ends list and Places No One Knows. May was a little slow for me as well in terms of reading, and I hope it picks up soon. Good luck with reading in June!

  5. Oh wow looks like a super nice month – two five stars! And you’re really killing those challenges! I’m so ready for summer and all the (sunny warm) free time it brings! 🙂
