Like May, June was not a great reading month when it comes to the total number of books read. I’ve been a bit preoccupied lately – yesterday afternoon I officially became a homeowner so I have been spending a lot of the last two months picking out paint colors, cabinets, tiles, carpets, fans and lights. It’s been quite a process. We need to move for the second time this year and then hopefully reading will resume at a faster rate.
But even with only three books read, two of them were the longest books I’ve read so far this year (one was 600 pages and the other was 650 in hardcover) so I actually feel like I did better than last month. Plus I’ve reviewed one of them already so that’s some progress – the last two months have started with none of the previous month’s books reviewed. That’s actually one of the reasons I read some longer books.
June books are:
24. Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews (review)
25. Feed by Mira Grant
26. Naamah’s Kiss by Jacqueline Carey
Favorite book of the month: I liked all of these, but I’ll have to go with Magic Bleeds. I am so addicted to the Kate Daniels series.
Usually I’ve read at least one new author, but these were all authors I’ve read before. This was my fourth Ilona Andrews book, my third by Mira Grant (the other two were of course written as Seanan McGuire since that was the first book she wrote as Mira Grant – and I was very excited to receive her third October Daye book in the mail today!) and my third Jacqueline Carey novel.
So what did you read during June? What did you think of the books you read?
