June Reading

Not a great reading month, I didn't really enjoy most of the books! I did enjoy and would recommend reading South Riding, but it was just so sad! No necessarily a bad thing but I just wasn't in the mood. My favorite from this month was an audiobook, First Bite, I thought it was fascinating, thoughtful, and refreshingly no-nonsense. I Await the Devil's Coming Was interesting because of the time and place it was written (by an 18 year old in Montana in 1901), it was sometimes funny and sometimes alarming, but I can't say it was fun to read (especially since I'd just read about the rest of the authors sad life in the books forward). I liked it but I doubt it would be for everyone.

What I read in June:

South Riding by Winifred Holtby
Fear: Essential Wisdom for Getting Through the Storm by Thich Nhat Hanh
• From The Short Novels of John Steinbeck by John Steinbeck I read: The Pearl, The Red Pony, & The Moon is Down. I'd already read the others.

How about you, did you read or watch or listen to anything good in June?


  1. I've read 'Shadow of the Wind' by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and'Fate and Furies' by Lauren Groff. Both excellent books!

    1. I tried reading Shadow of the Wind a while ago & couldn't get into it for some reason. Maybe it was just a bad time, so many people have recommended that book to me I should try it again!
