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?


  1. Looks like you've done really well this past month!

  2. Looks like a good month with some great reads. You also have some set some very specific reading goals for this month, good luck with those.

  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!
