Six in Six ~ 2023 Edition

Six in Six ~ 2023 Edition

Hey all!

Guruguru, GIF, Red-hair, staff, book

A happy welcome to a new post! Today I am doing Six for Six again! Yep! dances

I was looking for a fun tag to do when I discovered this one again! I did one in 2021 but then totally didn’t do it in 2022, probably because of how that year was. December 2021 my grandfather died, then in May 2022 my grandmother died. My head was probably just doing things on automatic mode. But this year is much better. Mental Health is still all over the place, but at least no more losses in my family.
So it was high time to pick 6 categories and find all the books for it! Haha, it was quite hard to pick 6 categories, I had like 10 I wanted to do. But this is Six in Six and not Six in Ten. In the end I managed to slim it down to 6 and then the fun started with finding books for each category! I added both English and Dutch books to the list as I read both of those languages. For some books I picked the English edition, for others I just left it to be the Dutch variant. Each book is linked to GR so you can check if there is an English/other language out for the books. So far the year is going well so I had lots of options~

Ready? Let me show you my Six in Six of 2023!


What is it all about?

The idea being that as the end of June approaches and we are then halfway through the year, let us share the books we have read in those first 6 months. In fact let’s shareΒ 6 books in 6 categories, or if time is of the essence then simply share just 6 books. Whatever combination works for you as long as it involves 6 books. Of course the same book can obviously feature in more than one category.

Who is the creator?

This meme was made by Jo over at The Book Jotter. Be sure to check out her page as it features ALL the categories you can pick from + more information.

Six favourite places to read
😍 My bed! I just love to read before going to sleep!
😍 My chair upstairs in the attic where all my books are!
😍 My Fatboy upstairs in the attic, it is a big round fluffy and soft Fatboy and I just love to lie on there.
😍 Since it is now the right weather, outside!
😍 At my laptop/desk, my chair there is just a desk chair, but it is comfy!
😍 Downstairs on the couch!

And that is it!! Whoo, this was just so much fun to do! I hope you all enjoyed my 2023 edition of this tag and maybe I will just have to make this one a yearly tradition to do in June/July, just like the Mid-Year Freak Out Tag! I would recommend all these books, as I said they are all at least 3.5 star rated so I had fun reading them~ Thank you all for reading!
