I'm going to cap off the month of June by giving the recap that's so justly deserved. Last month I'd put up 12 (with three pending) at the time of the 5 Minutes for Books' "What's On Your Nightstand?" Meme. This month I've got...
Books Reviewed in June: 9
Guys Write for Guys Read (Middle Grade/YA), Hannah's Dream (Literary Fiction), Hood (Commercial Fiction), Love is a Mix Tape (Nonfiction), Madapple (YA), North of Beautiful (YA), Something Rotten (YA), Scarlet (Commercial Fiction), and Stotan! (YA)
I think in the next week I should be able to finish at least two of these three outstanding library books: Something Wicked, Hero-Type, and The Iron Lance. (They're checked out from the library and they're outstanding to read... I've already started them, and they're good so far.)
Last time I posted I said I was going to aim to get A Prayer for Owen Meany and The Sunday Philosophy Club finished in June, but they've been eclipsed by library books and loaners that had due dates. They'll still be in the queue for July, along with:
The Island of Lost Girls - My book club selection for July
Middlemarch - My attempt to complete the "Beowulf on the Beach" summer reading challenge
Duplicate Keys and The Secret Life of Bees - My attempt to whittle down my TBR shelves
EDIT (7/6/09): I did finish Hero-Type, Something Wicked, and The Iron Lance in June, along with American Born Chinese. That brings that total for June books up to 13.
