June Wrap-Up

Honestly, this is a little embarrassing.

In case you missed my last post, I'm in the middle (or hopefully near the end) of a pretty big reading slump. Which means that this wrap-up, which was supposed to be the first of three GIANT summer wrap-ups where I'd cram as much reading in as I could before school, is pretty sad-looking. I read 4 books. One of them was a comic. The last time I read only 4 books was in my first month of college, and that was a significantly better excuse.

Oh, well. At least I read some things! And I'm going to get back on track! I promise.

THE BOOKS

GEORGE by Alex Gino: This was so cute! I've been meaning to pick it up for ages - I think I'm basically the last person to - and I'm so glad I did. I'm really happy that there are kids growing up with books like this.

GEORGIA PEACHES AND OTHER FORBIDDEN FRUIT by Jaye Robin Brown: Another one that I've wanted to read for a while! I had a couple of problems with this one, but overall, it was a pretty great read. I loved the characters, and it was such a great story.

STAR WARS: HAN SOLO by Marjorie M. Liu: This was so much better than I thought it was going to be! I've started keeping my expectations low for all of the mini series, but this one was action-packed and managed to fit a whole plot that still made sense into five issues.

NORTH OF HAPPY by Adi Alsaid: I've been meaning to read an Adi Alsaid book for a while now, and I finally did! I knew I was going to love this by the time I was only a few chapters in. I was sucked right in, and honestly, how great it was probably contributed to me not wanting to read anything else for a while.

  1. I've been the same about falling into a slump. Luckily, I think it's ending as I read three books last week and that is amazing for me. You are right, 4 books are better than nothing and better to make the most of the slump whilst it lasts. Sometimes you need the reading break. I hope July works out better for you reading wise.

    1. That's great that you've read so many books - hopefully you liked all of them! The reading break was much appreciated, and so far, July is going well.
