June 2016 Wrapup

June was a slow month for blogging and reading. It was super busy overall in everything else. Work was busy and life was busy. I also found out what is wrong with my wrist/thumb, it’s called De Quervain’s Syndrome and it makes it incredibly hard to type on bad days. I’ve also had to learn new ways of holding books without that thumb. Fun times.

But to the wrapup!

  • I managed to complete 18 books with a total ofย 6014 words
  • I don’t think I DNF’d anything, so that’s a win!
  • I hadย one 1.5 star book, one 2.5 star book, three 3 star books, one 3.5 star book, four 4 star books, four 4.5 star books, and four 5 star books.

The Books!

  • Theodosia and the Staff of Osiris by R.L. LaFevers – 4 stars
  • Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King – 5 stars
  • Letters to Zell by Camille Giep – 3 stars
  • What is Not Yours is Not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi – 3.5 stars
  • The Steep & Thorny Way by Cat Winters – 4 stars
  • The Lonely Ones by Kelsey Sutton – 5 stars
  • Mosquitoland by David Arnold – 4 stars
  • iZombie Volume 1, 2, & 3 by Chris Roberson – 4.5, 4, 5 stars
  • Saving Montgomery Sole by Mariko Tamaki – 5 stars
  • The Gap of Time by Janet Winterson – 3 stars
  • The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson – 4.5 stars
  • The Familiar Volume 2 : One Rainy Day in May by Mark Z. Danielewski – 4.5 stars
  • The Crane’s Dance by Meg Howrey – 3 stars
  • Hope and Red by Jon Skovron – 3.5 stars
  • Mrs. Rosie and the Priest by Giovanni Boccaccio – 3 stars
  • The Woman Who Would Be King by Kara Cooney – 5 stars
  • As Kingfishers Catch Fire by Gerard Manly Hopkins – 1.5 stars (to be fair this isn’t my type of poetry)

Hopefully next month will be a bit better, I hit a bit of a slump at the end of the month, I was hung up on The Woman Who Would be King (I loved it but it was a slow read). I’ll also hopefully get a lot of reviews up that I’ve been putting off. I, however am not supposed to use this wrist and it’s Camp NaNo so no promises!
