2020 Reading Challenge: June Book Recommendations

2020 Reading Challenge

I think this is my first post of this entire challenge that I have completed on time! I think I am finally getting the hang of this new mom -- life -- work balance. Today, at least. Finding time to read is still hard for me, but this challenge is keeping me on track.

I invite all of you to join me in the Judging More Than Just the Cover 2020 Reading Challenge. Each month, we have a category to follow.

Pick at least one book that falls into that category. I’ll let you know what book I chose and give a few other suggestions.

Once you pick your book, make sure to tag me on social media and use the hashtag #JudgingMoreChallenge. I’ll share my favorites! At the end of the year, I’ll have lots of giveaways. I’ll pick winners based on who completed all 12 months of challenges!

A little behind? That's okay!

See my previous recommendations:






Here’s the 2020 Reading Challenge:

January: A book with a strong female protagonist.
February: A book about nontraditional love.
March: A book you were supposed to read in high school, but didn’t.
April: An #OwnVoices character different than you.
May: A book that takes place in the state you live.

June Book Ideas: A Book in your Favorite Genre

This month’s category is a book in your favorite genre. Since this is pretty broad, I will provide my top recommendation for each of the major genres. Feel free to pick one of those or pick a book you have been wanting to read. I've asked you all to go out of your comfort zone with book choices the past few months, so take this opportunity to binge-read something in your wheelhouse. 

Here are some of my recommendations for June:



Science Fiction









New Adult

Young Adult

Middle Grade




Graphic Novel

Short Stories

My favorite genre is thriller, so I will be reading Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware.

So let me know which book you are choosing for June! And remember to tag me @judgingmorethanjustthecover and use the hashtag #JudgingMoreChallenge.
