Spell the Month in Books: June 2022

Afternoon all!

Nichijou, Calendar

A big welcome to a shiny new Spell the Month in Books!! June is here and I got some great books for this month!

It wasn’t an easy month, I mean, I just got a fresh batch of library books + some new physical books.. but whereas last year I could find a J, U, N, and not the E, this year I could find U, N, E, and so I went with an author for the J! Haha. Funny how that switched around. I also added 2 Dutch books as I just didn’t have any English books for N and J. I am sure I could find some in my read books, but I wanted to have this one be a TBR.
