I absolutely adore reading - my love for books has had a huge impact on my life! I'm going to grad school to be a children's/YA librarian.

June Round Up

Beneath a Meth Moon - Jacqueline Woodson The Beet Fields - Gary Paulsen Emma - Jane Austen, Fiona Stafford Treasure Island - Robert Louis Stevenson Big Fish - Daniel Wallace Cinderella's Dress (Entangled Teen) - Shonna Slayton The Silver Linings Playbook - Matthew Quick The Art of Arranging Flowers - Lynne Branard We Are the Goldens - Dana Reinhardt Strangers on a Train - Patricia Highsmith

So I am actually VERY happy with the reading that I've done in June! It's been a crazy busy month, with moving and the wedding, but I've somehow managed to read 10 books, including 2 books that I hadn't actively planned to read and every single book on my June TBR list except for Where Angels Fear to Tread, and that's just because it's not in at my new library yet. And, even better, most of these books were really awesome! Great reading month. 


I think that my favorite book this month would have to be We are the Goldens, with Treasure Island very close behind. If you haven't read We are the Goldens yet and you're a fan of YA literature, I highly recommend checking that out - it's very well-written and it was just published last month. I'd recommend Treasure Island to just about anyone. It's a great adventure story and a wonderful introduction to classic literature if you're new to it. The book that I struggled with the most this month was definitely The Art of Arranging Flowers, not because the book itself was bad, but because I received a really awful galley copy. I'm going to be revisiting the book in July once it comes to my library. 


What were your favorite books this month? Have you read any of the books I read in June?
