June round-up

Time for a late round up. June was not great reading wise, I have been busy with other things and trying to spend every second when the sun showed up outside (this is not that many seconds in London). I managed to read only five books, but I liked them all, so that’s a good thing, they were very different, but each of them managed to pull me into its special world.

I participate in 20 Books of Summer hosted by Cathy at 746books my reading also contributes to Reading My Own Damn Books hosted by Andi at Estella’s Revenge, it would all be great if I managed to read more in June, but I still think I can make 20 books, especially that I have vacation planned in August, it will be my chance to catch up. I’m also behind with reviewing the books I read, but I hope to have more time to catch up over the next few weeks, so you should see more of me.

  1. I read Beloved recently as well and I am waiting to post on it with some other books. I used sparknotes as I went to be clear on everything that was happening because it can be tough to follow, but wow, so beautiful. Needed a lighter read after that to decompress. I understand wanting to be outside instead of reading! I walk on my country road listening to books.

  2. I need to reread Beloved because I have only read it once when I was in high school. I think I need to read it with adult eyes to fully appreciate it. I have read Morrison’s Song of Solomon in the last year and just adored it. Good luck on your 20 Books of Summer! I’m doing the 10 Books option, and so far have read 4.
