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.

Indiana’s July TBR
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.
Pete’s June Wrap-Up
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.

Pete’s July TBR
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?
