Month in Review: June 2011

I'm a bit late sharing my recap of June. It's hard to do a lot of blogging on a holiday weekend! But here I am finally. June was a quiet month here in terms of reading and reviewing, but I got a few things done.

Books Read in May: 4
I read just four books in June. They were all adult fiction books:
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley
Dead Barchetta by Kathryn Lively
Island Girl by Lynda Simmons
Counting from Zero by Alan B. Johnston

Reviews Written: 5
This month, I wrote five reviews. First, I wrote reviews for two books I read in May:
A Game of Character by Craig Robinson
The Genius Files by Dan Gutman

I also wrote reviews of three of the books I read in June. You can click on the links above to read them.

Spring Reading Thing Challenge
I completed the Spring Reading Thing Challenge that was hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days.

I didn't read any more books for this challenge in June, so I still need to read three to six more by the end of the year.

This month, I read books that took place in one state, two different countries, and one book took place in multiple locations around the world. Here's where the books I read in June took place:
Virginia
UK
Canada
Multiple (Counting From Zero)
That brings me to 15 out of 50 states covered, plus 6 additional countries. Here's my updated map:

  2. Hi, Julie -

    I'm just back from a 3-week vacation and trying to get caught up - very behind on blogs!

    It sounds like you read some good books in June and are doing well keeping up with your reviews. After this trip, I am WAY behind!

    Good to hear what's been going on with you - I missed my blogging friends while I was away!
