June Wrap-Up

June was quite an eventful month for me! And most of that centered on one thing - I finished high school! Graduation was in the middle of the month, and organization and rehearsals took a surprisingly long time. I still managed to get a lot of reading in, although I didn't do as much on the blog. In fact, I was supposed to be writing a post that was an update to my May blogging goals, but then I looked back at them and figured out that I'd accomplished exactly one of those. So I'm going to keep those goals and write an update post later.

Speaking of my goals, however...I have a bookstagram! I'm @lostinmylibrary, and I've been having a lot of fun so far!

THE BOOKS:


Thud! by Terry Pratchett (Discworld #34): The Watch subseries of Discworld is quickly becoming one of my favorites, and this book was no exception. It was so wonderfully crafted, with all of the little sub-plots coming together. That's kind of what I've come to expect from Watch books, but it's a…

The Bookshelf Tour Tag

About a month ago, the lovely Liz @ Out of Coffee, Out of Mind created a new tag, and she tagged me to do it! This tag is all about the physical books you have on your bookshelf. I think that's a really fun idea! I get so many books from the library that a huge chunk of the books I talk about aren't books that I actually own.

A short but powerful book -Night by Elie Wiesel

This is one of the shortest books that I own, and also definitely one of the most powerful. I get thatthe subject matter of concentration camps during the Holocaust makes a lot of books powerful in and of itself, but this book is just put together so well and faces the facts so bluntly that it's even more powerful.

A good, long book -Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray

I chose this book because it's a long book that feels long. It's a tall hardcover that's over 600 pages long, so it'll probably take you a while to get through. But it's so worth it. It's so beautifully written, and the length…

MASSIVE Start-of-Summer Book Haul!

I always end up buying a bunch of books at the beginning of summer. It doesn't matter that my preexisting TBR was over 20 books, which, when combined with going to the library far too often, is more than enough to keep me busy. It's a leftover habit from when I was a small child, and *gasp*didn't have a TBR at all times. I needed to have new books because I'd suddenly have lots more time and not enough to read.

This book-buying spree was a bit bigger than normal, because I went to Barnes & Noble, and Amazon, AND a used bookstore, so in total, I got 26 books in the span of of about 4 days. I think that's a new record.


The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson: I literally just finished this book, and it's a new favorite, so of course I can't write anything coherent about it except that I LOVED it! I also have to say that I owe this to Sky @ Sky's Reading Corner because I was being indecisive about which book to get and she told me to get this one. THA…
