June Stats

Looking Back at June: This was a tough reading month in two ways. First my grandparents were visiting so I didn't have much time in the beginning of the month leading to a mini-marathon yesterday where I read about 1000 pages in addition to my regular Saturday activities so that I could reach my goal of 150 books for the halfway point of the year: totally worth it! The second problem was plenty of solid books but few outstanding books that just clicked with me. The clear winner, also mentioned below, was Elizabeth Wein's Code Name Verity, my favorite book of the year. Love love love it! I ended up buying my own copy and have lent it to my mom.

Looking Forward to July: I'm most excited about participating in a blog tour for Lindsey Leavitt's A Princess for Hire series. This is on July 3rd; look for an interview, review of A Farewell to Charms, and a giveaway of one book in the series. It will be an exciting day!

I'm also going to be attending some author signings at the end of the month; not sure if I'll end up posting about that but I'm excited to be attending that personally. As for reviews, look for a lot of 2012 YA releases along with some adult books.

  1. You are a super reader! I am soooo jealous.

    Hope July is just as productive :-D

  2. Wow 26 books read?!?!?! That is amazing! Congratulations on the wonderful month! Good luck for July :-)


  3. I love reading monthly recaps! Also thought Code Name Verity was an excellent book!

  4. Wow, so many books you have read! Have fun with reading books in July & I got Code Name Verity in the mail. Looking forward to it. ;)

  5. Thanks for reading my review of Take a Bow. And as for Carter, I just didn't see how his POV and story fit into the novel, because it seemed like the main focus was on Emme, Sophie and the band.
