This month’s wrap up will be pretty short, as I have only just gotten back into blogging, and I have had a busy month. The TBR for next month, however, will be longer than my usual, as I am currently trying to get a lot of reading done.
After the King edited by Martin H. Greenberg
This book is probably my favourite that I have read this month. While it wasn’t the best, it was nice to read so many different, well-renowned authors, and to read short stories for a change. Some of the stories were good, some were bad, some were appalling, and one or two were fantastic. I can’t wait to get around to reading Tolkien again, or anything from that era.
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
This, I think, is the best book I read in June. It was complex and thrilling from start to finish, and so original and well thought out. Just like with After the King, it was a nice change of pace to read something a little different to what I usually do. I’m quite enticed by the idea of broadening my horizons and am going to continue to read books outside of what I’m accustomed to.
A Series of Unfortunate Events(1) The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
I wouldn’t usually read children’s books, but I’ve owned this book since I was a little kid and had never so much as opened it, so I picked it up and finally read it, lest it is wasted on me.
I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would, it being a children’s book and all, and I actually thought it was an amazing written novel. Very out of the ordinary. It really pulled me in. Who knows, if I ever see the others in the series lying around somewhere, maybe I’ll read those, too.
As I’ve said, my list will be a little longer this month, and while I may not get through them all, these are the books I am to read in July:
– The Last Good Man by A.J. Kazinski
– The English Monster by Lloyd Shepherd
– Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
– A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
– The Sign of The Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
– Journeys of Frodo by Barbara Strachey
I may read more, I may read less, but these are the ones first on my list. I won’t necessarily read them in the order I’ve given, but I’ll talk about that when I get there. I will be writing a review on each of these, once I’m finished with them, and will have a number of other posts in the month of July. There may also be a few late reviews and others posts leftover from June.
