Well, June was… interesting. Mostly it was crazy busy and also crazy hot – these things combined to equal not all that much reading.
The books I did finish were: 1984 and Animal Farm by George Orwell, Kook by Chris Vick (which made me cry on a beach in Malta), Harry Potter and The Chamber Of Secrets by J.K.Rowling (Illustrated edition, read with The Smalls), The Last Wild by Piers Torday and Mama’s Boy and Other Dark Tales by Fran Friel (Smut Club’s June read)
According to my calendar, July is going to be less mental – but given that June kept throwing all kinds of curveballs at me, who really knows? I do know that the end of the month involves YALC 2017 so there will be shiny new books that will bump everything else down my TBR again. But YAY!
For now, on to my TBR for July 2017:
(Books that count toward my BBC17 will be highlighted in PURPLE and will be fully reviewed later in the month as part of the challenge and the Book Club books will be highlighted in GREEN and will feature in my Book Club review posts after our meetings.)
The Hunter’s Kind by Rebecca Levine – This has been on my shelf since it was released. It is a beautiful shiny hardback and I was so excited to get it and read it and and and… yeah. Fail. I loved the first book in the series though, so I’m looking forward to getting stuck in to book two!
Smut Club Choice! – Unknown as yet – will find out and update tomorrow.
The Impossible Knife Of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson – Yup, this was on the list for June – I didn’t even take it off the bookshelf. Oops.
Power Game by Christine Feehan – A sci-fi romance novel that I was supposed to review in June and I did start it but the month got away with me. First up this month though!
100 Things You Will Never Find by Daniel Smith – Another left-over from June. Again, I did make a start on it, so there’s hope yet.
Logicomix by Apostolos Doxiadis, Christos H. Papadimitriou, Alecos Papadatos & Annie Di Donna – Something a bit different for me here, Logicomix is a graphic novel ‘about the treacherous pursuit of the foundations of mathematics.‘ I’m interested to see how I, a very non-mathematically minded reader, get on with this one!
