Summer Reading….June Recap July Dreams!

Posted by Steph on July - 12 - 2013

So this summer is flying by! The library is crazy with programs having great attendance and circulation UP! Which is leaving less and less time for reading and writing 🙁 …however, I’m getting an unintended mini vacation, well time off not necessarily vacation. I’m getting my wisdom teeth out today! Hopefully the few days off (even for surgery I’m a bit excited) will give me some time to read and write while I’m not sleeping…we will see.

Well in June I read quite a few great books! Click on the titles to read the reviews.

House of Secrets (House of Secrets, #1)First up was an adventurous Junior Fiction tale co-written by the director of Harry Potter, Chris Columbus The House of Secrets.

Then I finished up an adult thriller by Iain Cosgrove called The Storm Protocol.The Storm Protocol

It was on to a more light hearted Young Adult fantasy/romance by Mette Ivie Harrison called The Rose Throne after that.

Stoker's ManuscriptI was able to score an ARC of an awesome new vampire novel by Royce Prouty called Stoker’s Manuscript.

Then I finally squeezed in the Young Adult Fantasy, Mirrorworld sequel, Fearless, by Cornelia Funke I’d been dying to read for a few months.

The ApprenticesAnd then I got to read another Junior Fiction sequel to round off the month of another ARC I scored off LibraryThing. The Apprentices by Maile Meloy.

In July I hope to read a few books (some still from last month) however, I have yet to finish a book this month *gasp* . It’s horrible! However, I’m working on Abandon by Meg Cabot and will hopefully finish it shortly

Then I hope to FINALLY read:

Pandemonium (Delirium, #2)Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver

Pure by Julianna Baggot as part of Your Pick for Nik’s Book Club.Pure (Pure, #1)

And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseni

The Golem and the JinniThe Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker

and whatever else strikes my fancy….
