June Book Challenge!

     If any of you are as obsessed with books as I am, then head over to and get yourself an account! If you already have one, great! Anyway, I am in a reading group on Goodreads-
Fantasy and YA Addicted Book Club- and every month they have a monthly book challenge! So I decided to pass on the challenge, and also share what I will be doing to fulfill it. Here's the original challenge:
"So it's the Queen's Jubilee here in the UK so we are going to have a royal theme this month.

Level 1: 4 Books
Level 2: 6 Books
Level 3: 8 Books
Bonus: 10 + Books

Category One: Words

Category 2: Cover Match

A books with Red on the cover
A book with White on the cover
A book with Blue on the cover
A book with Pink on the cover
A book with Yellow/Gold on the cover

Category 3: Bonus

A book with a princess

~ And/Or ~

A Fairytale book
^ can be a fairytale retelling."

      And if more explaining is necessary, here are the details:
"You choose a level which determines how many books you want to try and read this month.
Then there are different categories. You can choose any of the categories you want and you can mix and match if you want to do that.

For the word category you just choose one of the words I have listed there for example Queen.
Then you would choose books that had each letter somewhere in the title,
e.g a book with a Q in the title, a book with U in the title, E in the title, E in the title and N in the title.

Then the next category is the cover match. You can try any or all of them or even none at all if you don't want to do that category. You just choose books based on the characteristics listed. So they are all colours so it'll just have to have that colour somewhere on the cover. Like the title could be red and it'll count.

Then you have the bonus round. You don't have to do it. And you just find books that fit into the category. In this instance as it's a ROYAL theme a book with a princess as a character or a fairytale retelling."
