Bookish Update: June 2013

bookish updates june 2013

June is over, and so is half of 2013! I can’t quite believe it, but here we are. So far I have read 48 books, which is actually a very low number for me! When I was still in school, I read a ton, but it’s a bit harder now that I’m working full-time and have several evening commitments (not to mention the distraction of TV!). Still, here are my stats for this month:

Currently reading: The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas

Books read in June:

  1. Robin LaFevers, Dark Triumph
  2. Ben Macintyre, Operation Mincemeat: How a Dead Man and a Bizarre Plan Fooled the Nazis and Assured an Allied Victory
  3. Samuel Park, This Burns My Heart
  4. Talia Vance, Spies and Prejudice
  5. Francesca Segal, The Innocents
  6. Rachel Aaron, Spirit’s End
  7. Charles Finch, A Death in the Small Hours
  8. Meg Keene, A Practical Wedding: Creative Ideas for Planning a Beautiful, Affordable, and Meaningful Celebration

Favorite book of the month: Operation Mincemeat, for sure! It’s nonfiction but reads like a novel, and the story is absolutely fascinating!

Least favorite book of the month: Probably This Burns My Heart. It wasn’t terrible, but there was nothing I particularly loved about it.

Books acquired in June:

  1. Talia Vance, Spies and Prejudice
  2. Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls
  3. Ben Macintyre, Double Cross: The True Story of the D-Day Spies
  4. Jennifer Kloester, Georgette Heyer
  5. M.M. Kaye, Death in the Andamans
  6. Amy Patricia Meade, Million Dollar Baby

      I have read several of M.M. Kaye’s mysteries and enjoyed them all. If you’re into the Agatha Christie/Georgette Heyer/Dorothy Sayers type of mystery, I think you’ll like them too! Do let me know the title of the “rapey” one, if you remember…that is one I can cross off the TBR list!

    I am a HUGE fan of Dumas, but his books always take me alot longer to read than most. The count of Monte Cristo is one of my all time favorite books.

      Yes, they’re definitely doorstoppers, aren’t they? So far, though, The Three Musketeers is pretty interesting! Hopefully I’ll be able to sink into it within the next few days.
