June Wrapup 2012


And now June has come and gone.  I feel like I hardly read anything this month but looking back I'm a little surprised at the numbers. So, here you have it.

Spartacus: The Gladiator by Ben Kane
Historical fiction that didn't feel too historical.

Overbite (Insatiable 2) be Meg Cabot
Meg Cabot writes adult book??? And they're about vampires? Yep.

About A Boy by Nick Hornby 
Unlikely yet sweet tale of two "boys" and how they change each other for the better.

I Believe In Jesus Too by Mark S Nielsen
Cute picture book about LDS beliefs.

On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves
Exciting survival  story meets romance bordering on erotica. Oh my!

Bad Kitty (Bad Kitty 1) By Michele Jaffe
Ridiculous fun with laugh out loud humor.

The Color of Evil by Connie Cocoran-Willson
Suspense meets supernatural in a small town.

Endure (Need 4) by Carrie Jones 
Blah, blah, blah Astley something, something, Astley.

Song of the Sparrow by Lisa Ann Sandell
Beautiful verse novel with romance and adventure.


The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater 
The most unique story I've read if a LONG time.  


Favorites of the month were About A Boy and The Scorpio Races. I didn't really have any least favorites. Sheesh! look at me! I usually read at least a few books that I hate. Either I've been lucky or I'm getting a little less picky. Who knows. Happy reading!

  3. You've done heaps better than me in the reading stakes. I think I read a total of 3 books :( Scorpio Races was a DNF for me. It wasn't fast paced enough I don't think. Though the writing was beautiful.

    1. I have good and bad months. Bad months happen to all of us. The Scorpio Races was a little bit slower but that was OK for me.

    1. Yeah, I just can't look at other people's lists of books without at least wanting to add one to the TBR pile.

    1. Thanks. I'm still shocked I read that much. It didn't feel like it.

    1. Yay! Another person that's actually read Bad Kitty. It's not that old but I was beginning to feel like I was the only one who's read it.

  9. I'm not excited to read your review of Scorpio Races, not at all. :)
    I love your recap posts because I don't always get a chance to comment on each of your reviews individually so I can do it here. Yay for a good reading (and soccer) month! Also, that freaky clown book you reviewed had the creepiest cover I've seen in a while.

    1. I'm glad these wrapup posts aren't completely useless. I do them to make sure I've got all my reviews linked but I'm glad it helps others.
