I didn’t read as much as I thought I would last month. I took a week long vacation around my birthday on the 15th, but only managed to read halfway through one book. I suppose I ended up being busier than I thought I would be at the beach because I was under the impression that I could at least finish three books plus whatever else I might buy while I was there. However, I did read two books and i started two others. I’m currently debating adding what I’m reading at the moment into my monthly wrap ups but I’ve decided to include it in this one; so if you like seeing what I’m reading lately please let me know!
And now here are the books I read in June of 2018:
Sleeping Giants By Sylvain Neuvel was a surprisingly good book. And I don’t say that because I expected it to be bad, but rather that I almost never read Science Fiction novels. This is the first in a trilogy series and I can’t wait to get my hands on the second book. Expect a book review coming soon!
If you didn’t read my last blog post then you may be wondering why I read a Sweet Valley High novel. Well for starters I feel like there are classic book series that I missed out on growing up because I wasn’t invested in reading as much as I am today so I’ve been trying to experience them now; and also I had an idea to do a series here on my blog chronicling myself going through the entire series. From what I have researched there are, I believe, about 140 books in the Sweet Valley High series so it would be almost a three year project if I read one book a week. I was hoping to have others join me but I didn’t get a large response on my survey, though I did still create a goodreads group if you’d still like to join me. I’ve only read the first book so far and it isn’t too late to join!
Onto the new section!
I don’t know how many people are like this when it comes to reading, but I typically read at least two or three books at a time. Usually the books I read at the same time have to be different in genre and/or story line because I’ll tend to get characters mixed up otherwise, and at the moment I’m reading one Young Adult novel and a Urban Fantasy novel:
Both books I’ve owned for a while now and I’m liking each one so far. I will admit that I thought I would be done with I’ll Meet You There by now but It is a little darker than I was expecting it to be which is causing me to read it slower than normal. Other than that I hope to have them both read by the end of this month.
I’d really love to hear what all you have read recently or are reading currently. Please let me know in the comments!
