In June I read 8 books. Not as good as some months, but considering that this time period covered the start of the summer semester and our 11 day trip out to Utah and back for the Canvas conference, I don’t think I did too bad!
- Inferno: A Novel – Dan Brown
- A Very Special Delivery – Linda Goodnight
- Temporary Arrangement – Karen Erickson
- Holding On – Meg Jolie
- Rapture: A Novel of the Fallen Angels – J.R. Ward
- Mrs. Lincoln a Life – Catherine Clinton
- Prepare for Impact – Michelle Stephens
- Run the Risk – Lori Foster
Inferno was a typical Dan Brown book. It kept you on your toes, but the ending was ultimately a little strange and I didn’t love the book the way I loved Angels and Daemons. A Very Special Delivery and Holding on were both ok, but nothing to write home about or even to tell Mom about. Temporary Arrangement was a 20 page prequel to another book, but I didn’t realize it and was left pretty disappointed… until I realized there was an entire follow up book… until I realized I’d need to pay for said follow up book. Rapture reminded me exactly why I stopped reading JR Ward books. Strange strange strange and not even “that” good of a read. Mrs. Lincoln a Life was a good solid read (that I actually read as a “real” book, not a Kindle book) and discussed in my book group this month. Overall impression, Mrs. Lincoln was possibly crazy, but man she had a lot to deal with in her life and anyone might have gone crazy after all that! Prepare for Impact was a quick, but thought provoking read that made you want to go out and take over the world or at least be a better teacher/educator! Run the Risk was way better than I thought it would be. Mom bought it a while ago and I could never get past the first few pages. Then Mom went ahead and bought the second book in the series, so I felt like I “had” to go back and read the first book and I’m glad I did. It was a good solid book and not your “typical” romance novel.
So, an interesting line up of books for this month… let’s see what I’ll read next month… 😉
