A bit different this month – I feel like June has lasted forever and I’m constantly surprised that it’s not already July. Still, June is ending which means it’s time to join Shannon @ Rivercity Reading in looking at library use! Hoping your reading takes off for you soon, Shannon!
June has been a busy month. Lots of socializing. And it’s been warmer which means that I’ve been driving into work more often (to avoid getting home and vomiting because the bus isn’t air conditioned and I am not made for that…First. World. Problem) so I’ve lost some reading time there as well.
One thing that hasn’t fallen away is my use of the library though. Out of the 11 books I’ve read this month, 6 of them have been library books. These sunny days also make it impossible not to walk over to the library at lunch to pick up more books and read in the grass outside.
So let’s get to the rundown.
Library Books Read
Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist by Sunil Yapa
Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye (really liked this one!)
The Wife, the Mistress, and the Maid by Arial Lawhon
Secret Lives of the Tsars: Three Centuries of Autocracy, Debauchery, Betrayal, Murder and Madness from Romanov Russia by Michael Farquar (this was amazing)
The Little Book by Selden Edwards (I finally, finally finished this…it’s been a process that I will post about later)
Midwives by Chris Bohjalian
Checked Out, To Be Read
The White Russian by Vanora Bennet
The House Girl by Tara Conklin
The Careful Use of Compliments by Alexander McCall Smith
The Radleys by Matt Haig
The Book of Speculation by Erika Swyler
None yet but who knows at this point. I wish I could get back the time I’ve spent with The Little Book.
Still not doing the library holds thing. I just like the browsing.
How did your June at the library look?
