What I Read in June

If you can believe it, I barely read anything in the month of June. I’m not quite sure what happened… but I guess I wasn’t in the reading mood. Regardless, the books that I did choose to read were good ones, and I’ve already kicked it up a notch for July so that I don’t fail my reading challenge this year. Whoops!

What I Read in June

The Martian by Andy Weir – ★★★★ – It seems like everyone, and their mom had already read this, so obviously I had too as well. While this was a Sci-Fi book (which normally I have zero interest in), it was entertaining and engaging. This is also being made into a movie, and I’ll have to see it!

What I Read in May

Product Sample: A complimentary copy of Make Up by Michelle Phan was provided to me from Blogging for Books in exchange for this review.

I can’t believe it’s already been another month since I updated what I’ve been reading. It seems like I didn’t read that much last month, but apparently I did. I read a few good ones, and a few not so good ones. Seems like the usual pattern this year. So, onto what I’ve been reading!

Larger than Life by Jodi Picoult – ★★★ – This was a short story that was related to Leaving Time, a book I’ve read already. It was about more elephants, which apparently Picoult must be into. I can’t say this was my favorite short story of hers.

What I Read in April & Semi-Charmed Summer Challenge

I’m a little behind on getting my book post up for April, but I’ve still been reading lots! I read some winners this month, as well as a few duds. It happens and seems to, unfortunately, be happening a lot more recently. But in between the duds were a few gems, so read on to find out what they were! :)

I Am Having So Much Fun Without You by Courtney Maum – ★★ – This was just not enjoyable. A man has an affair and is whining about the loss of her… until he suddenly realizes how much he misses his wife. This happens just in time for her to figure out his affair, and so he tries to win her back. I did not enjoy the narrator and could not get into this book.

What I Read: March & Week’s End Link Up

My book picks for March started off not so good. It was bad book after bad book for me and I just wasn’t feeling it. Finally by the end of the month things had turned around with a few good ones such as FangirlReality Boy, and All the Bright Places. Now, onto what I read last month!

Wake by Anna Hope – ★★ – Honestly, I’m not sure what I expected from this book, but I just could not get into it. Every time I tried to listen to it, even when I was just folding laundry, I couldn’t focus on it. It just was… boring. I gave up.

What I Read: February

February was a short month, but that didn’t mean I didn’t get my read on. Sure, I didn’t complete as many as in January (I also didn’t take a week off for vacation!) but I still made more progress on my reading goal this year. If you’re new here, that’s 150 books. I’m currently 3 books ahead, but unfortunately in February I read quite a few duds. (And continue to have this problem into March… yeesh.) But, that doesn’t mean that I won’t tell you all about them! ;)
