June Monthly Recap

Awesome reading month for me! Totally awesome! See if you don't agree:

Insatiable by Meg Cabot: Meena is sick of vampires, but then she meets a mysterious guy at a party  and suddenly, the whole vampire legend is awfully real.

Coop by Michael Perry: The author's experiences during his first year of farming, mixed with his memories of growing up on a farm.

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl: Ethan is attracted to Lena the second he sees her at school and after they talk, they find some amazing connections between them.

The Sea of Monsters by Rich Riordan: Percy Jackson must find the Golden Fleece and save Camp Half Blood.

The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whelan Turner: The thief finds himself in the middle of a war and does some major political maneuvering to try and save his kingdom.

Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles: Carlos comes to live with his brother Alex, meets Kiara at school and feels conflicting emotions.

Muffins and Mayhem by Suzanne Beecher: The author tells recipes of her life, and shares some real recipes too.

Little Bee by Chris Cleave: The intertwining stories of both Little Bee, an African girl, and Sarah, a London mother.

My Ridiculous Romantic Obsessions by Becca Wilhite: Sarah meets Ben at college and feels like she is not even at all good enough for him.

Everlost by Neal Shusterman: Nick and Allie get lost on their way to heaven and together they deal with the world they find instead.

Hidden Wives by Claire Avery: Sisters Sara and Rachel face all forms of abuse at the hands of their polygamous father and strive to find the courage to overcome.

Way hard to pick a favorite this month. I think I'm going to have to go with Coop though, surprisingly, since it's so different from what I normally read! Love it when that happens! The Queen of Attolia is a very close second though.

Plans for next month:

  • Review Hidden Wives for a TLC Blog Tour later on this month
  • Finish Captivate
  • Finish The Dragon Reborn
  • Read a classic like, say, Bleak House! :) (oh but this cracks me up!)
  • Read a book from my TBR challenge list (maybe The Curious Incident....)
  • The King of Attolia! More Gen please.....
  • Get a start on Fall of Giants
  • Spells
  • Find that cowboy book Susan at Bloggin' 'Bout Books recommended, then read it!
  • Read Son of Shadows before it's due
  • Find out what the deal is with Bree Tanner


What was your favorite book you read this month? What plans do you have for July?

  3. You did indeed have a good reading month!

    I'll revisit Coop, I was intrigued by it, but not quite sure when I first heard about it.

    My top read for the month was Unaccustomed Earth, which I read for one of my book clubs.

    I hope you have a great July!
