What do you mean June is over?! Julying! …heh. Saw that pun on Tumblr today and got a good chuckle. Anyway, July is in fact here and that means a new reading month ahead! June was an okay reading month for me. I listened to a lot of audiobooks and read more comics than usual, but I made it over my 10 book a month goal, so I’m proud.
So what did I read in June? Audiobooks:
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera (5 Stars)
Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts by Susan Cain (5 stars)
Asylum by Madeleine Roux (3 Stars)
Being Jazz: My Life As A (Transgender) Teen by Jazz Jennings (5 Stars)
I can now happily say that I’ve read More Happy Than Not in ARC form, hardcover form, eBook form, and audiobook form. I guess all that’s left is paperback form now! My favorite audiobook this month, excluding MHTN because it will forever be a fave, was Quiet Power. I learned so much about myself through this book and I can honestly say I’ve earned a little more confidence in my introverted self. My least favorite was Asylum, it just didn’t hold my attention enough for me to stay focused.
Comics, which is a category I wish I read more of:
Wolverine Origins: Born In Blood by Daniel Way and Steve Dillon (4 Stars)
Bee And Puppycat Vol. #1 by Natasha Allegri and Garrett Jackson (5 stars)
Bee And Puppycat Vol. #2 by Natasha Allegri and Garrett Jackson (5 stars)
Bee And Puppycat Vol. #3 by Natasha Allegri and Garrett Jackson (5 stars)
Bee And Puppycat Vol. #4 by Natasha Allegri and Garrett Jackson (5 stars)
Bee And Puppycat Vol. #5 by Natasha Allegri and Garrett Jackson (5 stars)
Bee And Puppycat Vol. #6 by Natasha Allegri and Garrett Jackson (5 stars)
There’s clearly a pattern here. I wanted to read the Wolverine comics because I adore him and next to Spider-Man he’s my favorite comic book character. Buuuuut I had some trouble deciding where to start. The one I read says Origins and Vol. 1, so any non-comic book reader, like myself, would think this is a good place to start… nope. I was so confused. So I put that on hold for now and jumped into Bee And Puppycat which is the most adorable comic I’ve ever read! It was suggested to me because of my love for Adventure Time, and I’m so happy I found it. I read these on Scribd, but I’ll definitely be buying myself some physical copies ASAP. Clearly in this category Bee And Puppycat takes the cake over Wovlerine.
And last, books from my personal libray:
Two ARCs and two released, no too bad! These were actually some pretty good summer reads, except maybe Girl In Pieces which isn’t very summer-y at all, but still. Up In The Tree House by my self-published friend K.K. Allen was definitely my fave of the group – review coming for that one later! I was so excited when she asked me if I wanted an advanced copy of her new book, and I adored every word of it. We Were Liars was probably my least favorite. It just wasn’t for me.
So 15 reads total, but since 7 of them were comics I’m happy keeping my average around 10. I guess the extra amount that these comics have given me on my Goodreads challenge can count for some of the re-reads I’ve done which for some reason I can never get them to count again on the challenge number. Oh well! I’m happily approaching my goal with 65 out of 75 books read for the year so far. I’m thinking I’ll need to change that soon 😉
What did you read in June?
