This challenge is hosted by Berls @Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle @Because Reading.
I did have to use a *pass* for Raphael in May, but I finished it. And I really liked it! My Reading Assignment choices for June were Shadow's Edge and Ever After. I'm pleased to say that I finished both - and I even *listened* to Ever After. :)
This challenge is hosted by Chapter Break and Second Run Reviews.
I've shown my shelves some love. I've hit my physical, digital, and audio shelves! I've read 35 books so far! You can click here to check out the books and their reviews on Goodreads or click on the book images below.
Not bad, right? I read 9 books towards this challenge in June. And the thing I'm happiest about is that I'm pretty sure only Primani was purchased (freebie) this year. Woohoo!
As part of this challenge, I budgeted $10/month for books. In June, I spent nothing that counted against this challenge. And I've *still* only spent ~$10 total for the year. I'm getting kinda lost with my earning but I *think* I've now *earned* myself 5 books and $8.50 towards books. I still haven't used my $50 GC from my birthday or the $10 GC I won at RT! Overall, I'm doing well I think.
So for June, I earned:
9 Books = $4.50 Earned
As I've mentioned, I tweaked my *earning* methods to be $0.50 for every book I remove from my Already Owned shelf. My exercising (5 days a week) and writing goals (5000 words a week) remain the same.

I added THREE to the list during the month of June. And I know Trust, the 3rd book in Ella Frank's Temptation Series will be read in July. ;)

I have finished this challenge since I challenged myself achieve God level or 6-10 books and I've read 6. (I'm actually wondering if Patricia Briggs' books would fit this challenge?) Anyway, I'll continue to add books here as I read them because, hey, sometimes I'm an over-achiever. ;) Here are the books I've read so far:
Lexxie @Unconventional Book Views and Stormi @Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! are co-hosting this year-long challenge to read books being released in 2015. Originally, I challenged myself to reach New Release Newbie status - or 1-15 books. Since I met that goal, I decided to aim higher. ;) I set a new goal of New Release Pro - or 16-30 books. And I've now met that goal as well! Goodness! I really didn't think I'd read that many new releases this year. So, keeping in mind we're ~6 months into the year, I've set a new goal of New Release Enthusiast - or 45+ books. That's right - I'm setting my sights on the highest goal!
In June, I only read ONE New Release...naturally. ;)
COYER Summer Edition began on June 20th and I'm so excited to be participating AGAIN. For the summer months, Berls, Michelle, and Stormi have put together a lot of fun events to get everyone really into the spirit of cleaning off their ereaders! You can participate in *regular* COYER, the COYER Scavenger Hunt, and even just helping out others by cheering them on. For full details, click on the banner.
Here are the books I've read towards this challenge so far:
In June, I once again only read/listened to 12 books. Despite being on vacation, I didn't get any more reading done. Hmm... I guess I'm just not a speedy reader. But that's okay. I'm happy with what I am getting done and how it relates to my challenges. :)
How are y'all doing with your challenges?
