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.


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.

  • Total books: 4
  • Longest book: Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit, 432 pages
  • Shortest book: Star Wars: Han Solo, 112 pages
  • Favorite book: North of Happy

How have your lives been? When was your last reading slump? How many books did you read this month? Tell me in the comments!


  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.
