06/01 Age of Swords
06/23 The Last Wish

message 7: by Margret, Caladan Brood Face (new)

Margret | 3170 comments Mod
I know, it’s daunting


message 8: by Silvana (new)

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1818 comments Three for me: Alloy of Law, Evil anthology, and The Scar. Excited!


message 9: by Timelord Iain, Tech Support (new)

Timelord Iain | 17894 comments Mod
52 BRs to choose from... remember when there were like 15-20 each month?...

I'll build my schedule later... I actually haven't updated my BR plans past May in a while and I'm in the middle of so many series... I'm scared...


message 10: by Narilka (new)

Narilka | 3334 comments My current plan for the month is:

06/01 The Blue Sword Robin McKinley
06/04 Bayou Moon Ilona Andrews
06/15 Winter Marissa Meyer
06/25 Wildfire Ilona Andrews

Hope no one minds I'm jumping in to the Lunar Chronicles only for the final book. I read the rest of the series earlier this year and got distracted by other books before finishing.


message 11: by Michael (last edited May 28, 2018 06:14PM) (new)

Michael | 31 comments Wow, I thought I read as much as some of you...

I'm planning on:

1) Lord of Chaos
2) Vicious
3) Firefight
4) The River
5) Elantris-finishing it, or maybe restarting it. Don't know why I can't get into this but its slow right now.

I'd love to find someone who wants to continue The Expanse series and read Caliban's War... I love the characters and they are soooo much better in depth than the tv series.....

Michael

2. Blue Sword
3. Shadows Linger
4. Reaper at the Gates (provided I get the copy on time)
5. Rise of the Empire
6. The First Chronicle

8. House of Chains

See you around!

message 20: by Lesa (new)

But I'll do

6/5 Inkheart
6/20 Vicious


message 21: by Rob (new)

Rob (nefariasbredd) | 1951 comments Too many to join. Glad we're taking a one month pause on the Gwynne series to join up.

Still reading May buddy reads (Memories of Ice and Persepolis Rising. Didn't get to Unclean spirits and the Black Company, so may return those to the library).

6/1 FireFight
6/3 The Warded Man
6/6 Mirror Dance
6/20 Sins of the Empire

And everything I mentioned that I have to catch up on. Thankfully this foursome are all on the quicker side of reads.

Fools Errand
The Warded Man
Inkheart
The Edge of Eternity
The Reaper at the Gates
Lord of Chaos

Timelord Iain | 17894 comments Mod
Here's my June Plan: (a few of these should be added to the official list soon, I just requested them since they were missing)

16 new BRs + 6 re-read BRs + 5 Bookburners episodes

6/01 -- Kushiel's Mercy
6/01 -- Shadow of the Scorpion
6/01 -- Age of Swords
6/04 -- Down Among the Sticks and Bones (re-read)
6/04 -- Bayou Moon (re-read)
6/06 -- Bitter Seeds
6/06 -- Mirror Dance
6/07 -- Dark Sky

6/08 -- Bite This
6/09 -- Alloy of Law (re-read)
6/10 -- Zoe's Tale
6/10 -- Shadow's Edge
6/12 -- Rise of Empire

6/16 -- A Second Chance
6/17 -- Guardian
6/20 -- PJ & the Titan's Curse
6/20 -- Sins of Empire

6/25 -- Wildfire (re-read)
6/25 -- Oathbringer (re-read)
6/27 -- Red Country
6/29 -- House of Chains
6/30 -- The Scar

Bookburners episodes/chapters every Friday -- 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th

My BR Tracker is ballooning again, but there isn't much to prune at the moment... I could drop The Scar, since China Mieville has been a 2-3 star experience for me, so far, or I could drop Bitter Seeds since it's a new series... but I've been enjoying my re-reads and my other BRs...


message 24: by Delitealex (new)

Delitealex | 403 comments I plan to read

Warded man
Guardian
Tombs of Atuan

Maybe
Twelve kings in Sharakhai
Winter


message 25: by Veronica (last edited May 29, 2018 09:25PM) (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 3613 comments That's one jam packed June. I took a more relaxed approach in May and I really enjoyed it so I'm doing it again for June. I'll also be gone a week for vacation so, there's that. I'll be doing:


6/01 Kushiel's Mercy
6/06 Bitter Seeds (this one is just a "maybe")
6/09 The Alloy of Law (also a "maybe", depends on if I get through
The Hero of Ages first)
6/29 House of Chains

Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments Caliban's War seems to be missing on the 17th?

1/6 - Before they are hanged
10/6- Shadows Linger
15/6- Catch-22

20/6- Vicious
