June Reading Wrap Up

June 2019 Reading Wrap UpI have no idea how this works, but June seemed to both drag and fly by at the same time. Does time ever seem to flex that way for you?

That being said, I had a fantastic reading month. I wound up rating every book I read at least a three, and three books hit full marks for me! I don’t think I’ve ever had that happen before. It’s pretty exhilarating to be on a such a kick of great books and I’m just hoping it continues…

Ready to see what I read and reviewed?

Sleeping Giants was a fascinating story with excellent full cast narration.

On the stack for next month:

July 2019 TBR

July is going to be heavy on review copies for me. I’d requested a bunch of books that are due to be published in August, and then also received a few invitations to read books through Netgalley that I just couldn’t turn down. I also have a few library books I’d like to get to. First, I’m excited to finish out the Themis Files trilogy with Only Human on audio. And second, I grabbed a copy of The Happiest Baby on the Block as my husband and I are getting ready for our first baby! My due date is mid-August but who knows when this baby will actually be ready to be born, so the next couple months are a bit up in the air. I’m still reading and reviewing for now, though, and have some scheduled posts ready to go if need be, but hopefully I’ll have a full July of reading to report back on at the end of the month!

What are you reading or planning on reading next?

  1. Wow, that is an impressive list! I’m still doddering around with my two current novels that are taking me way too long to read. Thanks for the inspiration and the great titles you’ve included, many of which are new to me. I’ll be reading up on a few (ha haaa!) soon.

  2. Congrats on the immanent motherhood! I suspect your unrestricted blogging days are coming to a close πŸ˜€ For your sake I hope it comes on time, or even a little early!

    As for time going fast AND slow, yep, I know exactly what you mean. June wasn’t that way for me but some earlier months felt just that way. It’s a really weird feeling, isn’t it?
