June Wrap-Up & July TBR

 

white-rabbit-late

Eeek! Almost a week into July and no June wrap-up? Or July TBR? Where have I been*?

*I’ve been working, reading, and bookstagramming. I’ve also found a new obsession: booktube. But we’ll discuss that on a later day.

Anyway, here I am! Here’s what I read in June:

The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman: 5/5

And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard: 3/5

Girls Like Us by Gail Giles: 3/5

Bellweather Rhapsody by Kate Racculia: 3/5

Seconds by Bryan Lee O’Malley: 4/5

Lock In by John Scalzi: 4/5

Everything I Never Told You by Celest Ng: 2/5

This On Summer by Mariko Tamaki: 2/5

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion: 5/5

So my favorites were Maus & The Rosie Project. Maus was just a unique way of telling the horrific story of the Holocaust and one man’s survival and it’s aftermath on his son. Really good and I’m surprised I hadn’t read it before now. I can see why it’s kind of a classic. The Rosie Project I’m not going to go into too much detail about because I want to write a proper review for it and it’s sequel The Rosie Effect (which I’ve just finished, see pic below), but I will say that I loved it because Don Tillman is someone that you just can’t help but root for. In his words, he’s “wired differently than other humans” but I kinda wish more humans were wired like him.

And here’s my July TBR (to-be read):

July TBR

First Frost (Waverley Family #2) by Sarah Addison Allen, Golden Son (Red Rising #2) by Pierce Brown, A Million Suns (Across the Universe #2) by Beth Revis, The Testing (The Testing #1) by Joelle Charbonneau, Unlocked: An Oral History of Haden’s Syndrome (Lock In #0.5) by John Scalzi, The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein, Doomed Queens: Royal Women Who Met Bad Ends, From Cleopatra to Princess Di by Kris Waldherr, The Heir by Kiera Cass, and One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories by B.J. Novak. The last five books are for a reading challenge I am doing with a bookstagram friend, which I will write about in my next post. The others are library books I need to read before their due date! (Unless I can renew them!)

Anyway, that’s all that’s going on with me bookwise! Have you read any of the books featured in my June wrap-up or July TBR? What did you think of them? Sound off in the comments below 🙂

Until next time, happy reading!

    1. I definitely agree! I liked them ok but yea they weren’t really anything special. I do want to read more short stories now though! Although I kind of prefer them in memoir form…

      1. That’s what I thought too! lol I’ve heard though that him & Mindy Kaling are writing a sort of dating book so I would still be intrigued to read that.
