I know it’s not the end of the month yet, but I don’t think I’ll be starting or finishing anything between now and June 4. It’s the end of the semester for me, and I’m too busy writing papers and doing other school work. I’m still reading The Path of Daggers (Robert Jordan) for my bedtime book, and there is a *chance* that I’ll finish that before the 31st, but other than that, I’m not starting anything new for the rest of the month.
I read (or finished) nine books in June, and all but one fit into the following categories…
Asian Readathon (May 1-31)
- How We Disappeared, by Jing-Jing Lee (★★★★)
- The Dragon Republic, by R.F. Kuang (also read for Tome Topple) (★★★★)
- Little Fires Everywhere, by Celeste Ng (★★★★)
Tome Topple (May 9-22)
- Lethal White, by Robert Galbraith (★★★★)
Sykes & Savidge Book Club
- The Hunting Party, by Lucy Foley (★★★)
Lauren’s Patreon book club
- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows (★★★★)
Women’s Prize Longlist
- Actress, by Anne Enright (★★★)
- Red at the Bone, by Jacqueline Woodson (★★★★★)
I also read Dopesick (Beth Macy) for my Drugs & Human Behavior class, which is what one of my final papers will be based on.
There were other books I wanted to get to, but May turned out to be busier than I expected with work and school. I’m still happy with how much I read and *what* I read, so I’m calling May a good month. I’m looking forward to having the summer off from school so I can just read for pleasure outside of work. That’ll be so nice. I’M SO CLOSE.
