Bethany I'll join in. But I'm gonna be lame and go for easy :/ This is a loaded month for me so I don't know how much actual reading I'll get in.

Does your book have to line up with the day you start it? Like, if I was gonna start a book tonight on the 5th...does it have to be for world environment day? Or do I just have to pick within the June options?

Easy- 0/4

1. Repeat day- Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (finished)
2. Pick your poison day- The After/Life by Vardan Partamyan
3. Flip a coin day- Graveminder by Melissa Marr
4.

You can read your books anytime within the month and use it for any of the days. I just used the dates as a guide to show why I used the cover options I did.

Plus there is nothing lame about doing the easy level. Sometimes we have busy months that interrupt our reading. It happens.
