July TBR

Indiana’s June Wrap Up

Overall, this has been a decent month of reading! About halfway through the month, I decided I needed to mix things up and start to read nonfiction that was out of my comfort zone. I’m usually good about making sure my fiction is varied, but I sometimes get into a rut of only memoirs for my nonfiction choices.

Gift From The Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh —  Review to come

Less by Andrew Sean Greer —  Review to come

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon —  Review to come

Colors Insulting to Nature by Cintra Wilson —  4 out of 5 stars

Hormonal: The Hidden Intelligence of Hormones by Martie Haselton – Review to come

The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins – Review to come

A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir —  Review to come

The Shame:

The Two Tower by J.R.R. Tolkien

I didn’t even have a chance to start this one.

This month I’ve got two nonfiction picks on my list: Built by Roma Agrawal and At Home by Bill Bryson. Then I’ll be reading First Test by Tamora Pierce, which is the first in her Protector of the Small quartet. Getting into classics, I plan to tackle Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte. She’s the only Bronte sister I haven’t read yet. Oh, and I will actually read The Two Towers.

June was a much better month than April or May—even though we were moving. I got through all but two of my books. I’m finally digging into my TBR shelf again, and it feels good.

This is going to be a sci-fi- and fantasy-packed month. In preparation for reading The Left Hand of Darkness in our book club, I’m trying to read the preceding books in the series. Next up is Planet of Exile, which I know I’m going to love. I’ll also be reading my first Toni Morrison novel: The Bluest Eye. And last, I picked up The City by Joel Kotkin to do some research on a board game I’m designing. I figure I can handle five books in one month… right?
