Originally there was going to be no challenges for the month of June other than trying to knock some more of my ARCs from NetGalley off my TBR pile. I need to improve my feedback ratio and alleviate the guilt every time I request a new title and the disappointment when my request gets rejected. I also need to smash out these library books. I managed to max out my library card in May, showing that I have a serious addiction.

But yesterday I stumbled across a new challenge for June in one of the Goodreads groups, Nothing But Reading Challenges (NBRC). It is the Embrace Your Inner Child Challenge, which celebrates International Children’s Day on June 1st. I have chosen to spell out Watership Down with the books I will be reading.
