It's Monday, a June Recap

Holy hippopotamus! I read 9 books this month, and that hasn't happened in, like, years? Maybe. I haven't read much over 30 books per year for the last two years, so 9 books in a month is monumental for me. Let's recap, shall we?

Confessions of a Sociopath by M.E. Thomas
The Last Girlfriend on Earth and Other Love Stories by Simon Rich
Soonchild by Russell Hoban

The Whole Fromage by Kathe Lison
Glaciers by Alexis M. Smith
Naked by David Sedaris

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
The Crimson Petal and the White by Michel Faber
The Suicide Shop by Jean Teule

Note: Reviews for the other books are locked and loaded!

It's really hard to choose a favorite, but Ocean and Crimson Petal really wowed me. Confessions of a Sociopath, on the other hand, was my least favorite. This month's numbers are a testament to my new reading groove. I can go ahead read that big ole chunkster, as long as I keep reading small books at intervals to keep my mojo truckin'. I can't believe I managed to finish all 830-some-odd pages of Crimson Petal and the other books too. You could knock me over with a feather.

What am I reading now, you ask?

It's time to be off and running with A Prayer For Owen Meany! I'm excited to try this one and see how it stacks up to my experience reading Cider House Rules.

Addendum! Because I forgot stuff!

I finished one more book on Saturday, so that takes me to TEN books read in June!

The Illusion of Separateness, by Simon Van Booy, was utterly gorgeous. I cannot wait to review this one!

Today also marks the beginning of the Summer Lovin' Readathon! It's not too late to join if you need a little extra boost!

Today is also the beginning of the #Estellagram July photo-a-day challenge!

What have you finished lately and what are you itching to start?
