The June Wrap-Up

Here we are in July, and I’m seriously behind on my blog postings.  I have at least four reviews that I need to write and several others on the horizon.  It’s hard to get any serious writing done, though, as I’m on vacation at the moment. and trying to get used to a QWERTY keyboard again means writing anything takes twice as long as usual!  Also, I haven’t had time to visit other blogs as much–please forgive me.  I’ll catch up with you in a few weeks, I promise.

June was a busy reading month for me, with six books finished:

Sarah Thornhill by Kate Grenville, 4 stars

Trip of the Tongue by Elizabeth Little, 4 stars

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling, 4 stars

Espresso Tales by Alexander McCall Smith, 4.5 stars

Spring Fever by Mary Kay Andrews, 3.5 stars

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, 5 stars

My favorite book this month was A Discovery of Witches–thanks so much to all of you who recommended it to me.  I absolutely loved it and can’t wait for the second book in the trilogy, Shadow of Night, to come out (in 9 days!!)

I didn’t do so well on my Empty That Shelf June Challenge, although I did finish the Alexander McCall Smith book (Espresso Tales) that had been on the shelf for ages.  For July, I’m participating in the Paris in July Challenge hosted by BookBath and Thyme for Tea.  I haven’t planned out exactly what I’m going to read, watch, or do for this one yet, but it should be fun (and maybe I can use it as an excuse to pop up to Paris for the weekend sometime).

So there’s the June wrap-up–on to July!  Happy Canada Day to you Canucks out there and a Happy 4th on Wednesday to the Yanks.  I’m planning to celebrate with a 5k race in the morning followed by a day of activities in a small town in north Georgia.  Wish me luck!
