I had a dual TOP POST in June: The Interview With Sara Dobie Bauer, Author of Bite Somebody received the most hits (and is definitely worth your entertainment to check out if you missed it) and Announcing the #SchoolsOutRAT (School's Out Readathon) had the most comments.
The TOP PIC for the month was this reading beauty, courtesy of my new hammock. This picture also reminds that I am not taking advantage of this view near as much as I should these days. I need to make some changes to my priorities!
The BOOKS READ this month was a decent number. I'm still way behind on my Goodreads Challenge, so I'm hoping to eventually catch up. In fact, according to the challenge at the time that I am writing this, I am 14 books behind schedule! Yikes! I've got a lot of reading to do to catch up!
- The Night Strangers by Chris Bohjalian
- Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
- The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
- The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo
- Landline by Rainbow Rowell
- Bite Somebody by Sara Dobie Bauer
Which of these books was my FAVORITE READ for the month? A number of these were really good, but if I have to pick just one, I'm going to have to go with The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin.
As I mentioned earlier, I am participating in a lot of events during this month of July. I am hoping with these events, I will get caught up on some reading and blogging. Stay tuned . . .
How was your month of June? What are you most excited for during this month of July?
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry was so good! I should reread that this year. :)ReplyDelete
Kailana ... That is definitely a story worth re-reading!!Delete
That is a beautiful view. I wish I had a hammock. I'm way behind on my goodreads goal too. Maybe I should read a bunch of verse novels and GNs.ReplyDelete
Jenny ... I'm catching up a bit this week with some readathons, and thanks to graphic novels! :)Delete
I loved A.J. Fikry and Landline! How did you make out with The Night Strangers? I DNFed that one, unfortunately, but I've wondered if I should try again.ReplyDelete
Andi ... I really liked The Night Strangers. It was so good, and that ending! Ugh!! Maybe give it another go. Maybe it will stick at a different time.Delete
Nice summary! I should really do that as well. It's always good to reflect on what you've read. It looks like you've read some great books this summer!ReplyDelete
Laura's Reviews ... Thank you! I have read some good books this summer, and I really should get to writing about them!Delete
Yes, you need lots more time in that hammock! :)ReplyDelete
