What I Read: June

June was a slower reading month for me...only four books this month! But that's okay. Things were pretty busy for the first half of the month because my mom's accident. {Update: she's walking without her boot now, but she's still in some pain because of the muscle and nerves healing back. She starts physical therapy this week.}

I'm making slow but steady progress on my summer reading list. But I'm visiting the library this week, which is a place where I have zero self-control, so my plans might get slightly derailed. We'll see. :) Here's what I read this month, and as usual, you can click on the titles to see my Goodreads reviews:

Cress, by Marissa Meyer. I stretched out the Lunar Chronicles as long as I possibly could, but now I'm caught up and we have to wait until fall of 2015 for the next book?? Anyway, I really enjoyed this one. There was so much going on, and it was awesome. And Princess Winter at the end was nothing like I expected, so I'm incredibly excited to read her story.

Wanderlove, by Kirsten Hubbard. Eh...I didn't like this book. It was way too "typical teenager"-ish for my taste, with the language, mentions of drinking, drugs, etc. The only thing I liked was the travel aspect.

A Brief History of Montmaray, by Michelle Cooper. I feel like I've been wanting to read this series for the longest time now, so it's nice to finally be reading the books. :) I loved this first one. It was reminiscent of I Capture the Castle, which I read earlier this year. But it was different in a lot of ways and there were so many unexpected plot twists! I loved the quirky characters and setting.

The FitzOsbornes in Exile, by Michelle Cooper. I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the first one, but it was still really good! Like the first book, the story was a mix of slower sections and dangerous drama. :) I can't wait to find out what happens in the third and final book (which I'm currently reading).


  1. Marissa Meyer just announced a novel for this coming January called Fairest. :) its a prequel following Queen Lavinia's early life. So that should help till Winter comes out.

    1. I'm so glad to hear that! I think I had seen it mentioned before, but I thought it was just a novella or something. But a full-fledged novel...that's awesome. :)


Please feel free to leave a comment, I love to read them! :) I reply to each one, so be sure to check back, especially if you asked a question.
