June Recap

Here's what I read in June:

Mira, Mirror by Mette Ivie Harrison: Ever wondered what happened to the mirror after the witch in Snow White stopped coming to ask who was the fairest one of all? Well, now you can find out!

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See: Two best friends grow up in 19th century China and survive all kinds of traumatic events.

Prom by Laurie Halse Anderson: Our heroine ends up helping with the prom even though she's quite against the whole idea.

Life, Love and the Pursuit of Free Throws by Janette Rallison: Two friends want what the other one has. Do they get what they want for themselves in the end?

Dragon Slippers by Jessica Day George: The story of what happens to Creel after she is sacrificed to the local dragon.

The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch: Some wonderful life inspirations.

Relocating Mia by Rebecca Lerwill: The new guy Mia is asked to work with is nice, but is he who he appears to be?

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green: Colin gets dumped for the 19th time by a Katherine. In order to forget his misery, he and his friend take off on a road trip and have an adventure where they learn tons about themselves and life.

Farworld: Water Keep by J. Scott Savage: Two kids, each from different worlds, meet up and together learn how their weaknesses are really strengths, and how that knowledge can help save the world. (Much, MUCH more on this book when it's my turn for the Blog Tour! Stay tuned!)

War and Peace progress: Yes, I made some.... progress that is. I've just passed the 500 page mark which means I'm not quite half way. I'll have this book read by the end of the year if it kills me! :)

Hard to pick a favorite of the month from this list. I guess I'll go with Snow Flower and the Secret Fan... with many tying for second place!
