June 2011 Reading Wrap-Up

We’ve made it all the way into July! I can’t believe half of the year is over. And it’s the painful half of the year; I have no less than three trips scheduled in the last six months of this year and I’m really excited for all of them. So, roll on July, August, and October, and after that comes November and Christmas.

June was exciting, too, though; I got to see Kathy from Bermudaonion!


I also met her lovely husband Carl and we spent a nice afternoon wandering around London. Definitely worth the train trip!

June was a month that was decent for reading, considering how much else I had going on, and not so decent for reviewing. They’ll turn up eventually, trust me!



  • Magic Bites, Ilona Andrews
  • Magic Burns, Ilona Andrews
  • Magic Strikes, Ilona Andrews
  • Magic Bleeds, Ilona Andrews
In terms of romance, Unlocked is the clear winner this month, but can’t top Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews for a book containing everything I love, especially coming after I reread the entire series in anticipation of it. And for non-fiction, I’d be torn between Blood Work and Super Mario, the latter a book that ticked several of my nostalgia boxes and gave me lots of cool information besides.
I have no idea what I’ll read in July. I’m going to visit my parents, so I’ll undoubtedly get lots of new and exciting books that have piled up there, but I want to get a few of the books that have lingered here read. I’m thinking:
  • I’m Feeling Lucky by Douglas Edwards
  • The Maid by Kimberley Cutter
  • The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King
  • Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes
  • Sugar by Elizabeth Abbott
  • And most definitely more Nalini Singh!
How was your reading month in June? What are you planning on reading in July?
