It’s been several months since I did a ‘Wrap-Up’ post, so I’m going to quickly recap what I’ve been reading since February. The stats for March and April should tell you something about what a stress nightmare those two months were for me. When I’m not reading, something is WRONG.
Things have picked up since school let out in May, and I’m back to reading at pre-nightmare levels once more. All is right with the world again.
Sigh of relief.
March – The Red Umbrella by Christina Diaz Gonzalez
April – Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls (audio)
May – The Distance by Helen Giltrow
The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness
The Mystery of Mercy Close by Marian Keyes
The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling (audio)
June – An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon
Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon
The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
Euphoria by Lily King
A Killing in the Hills by Julia Keller
I might possibly finish another book before the day is out, but I’m not counting on it so I won’t add it in just yet. The best of the bunch was probably Euphoria by Lily King which I was absolutely fascinated by and devoured in less than a day. The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver is also excellent and a must read for anyone interested in America during the 1950’s and McCarthyism. It wasn’t at all what I expected, but it’s a very impressive book.
I hope everyone had a good reading month in June and that your summer is going along swimmingly. 🙂
