Death's End | Cixin Liu

July so far is a very busy month. Not as much time to read and not as much time to post about it. Sigh.

This is one book I did finish. It's a pick for me, the last in a trilogy all of which I thought was very good. It's a first contact story and it didn't quite end up where I thought it would.

This checks some reading goal boxes for me though! #yearofthechunkster #finishtheseries #mountTBRchallenge @DivaDiane

The Ninth Hour | Alice McDermott

June reading wrapup. Made some progress in #finishtheseries by reading the next installment and a short story in the Harry Dresden series. Also re - read sweetness at the bottom of the pie in preparation for reading more in that series.

My favorite books this month were I'll Be Gone in the Dark and Parable of the Sower. And Mort, if course, which I've included here even though I probably won't finish it until tomorrow!

Parable of the Sower | Octavia E. Butler

Now that it's pretty much mid - June I thought I'd commit to some reading goals for the month. A few buddy reads and some personal #mountTBRchallenge books that work towards #finishtheseries. What are you reading this month?

2BR02B Some great selections here. I loved Parable and The Scar. 1y
DrexEdit @2BR02B I'm loving Parable so far. Really great read. Haven't started The Scar yet. Just finished Perdido Street Station a couple of months ago. Was glad to find out there was more to read in this world! 1y

State of Wonder | Ann Patchett
post image
Pickpick

May reading wrap-up. I read 6 books in May. That's a LOT for me. The Bell Jar and State of Wonder were my two favorites. I liked SoW just a tiny bit more. Ann Patchett can do no wrong! And I'm not sure you can really enjoy the Bell Jar even though it is a brilliant book. The Library at Mount Char was also a 👍 & I'm slowly creeping up to the end of the Jack Reacher books (until a new one comes out!)

Richryan52 Gotta love Reacher. Have you tried Daniel Silva? 1y
DrexEdit @Richryan52 I haven't yet but it looks like I put him on my TBR list at some point on goodreads! Maybe after I finish the last couple of Reacher short stories I can fit some Silva in! 😊 1y
Richryan52 They key to Silva is to read him in order because the later books contain spoilers. Are you a Sherlock Holmes fan? 1y
DrexEdit @Richryan52 thanks for the tip! 😊 I wouldn't say I'm a huge Sherlock Holmes fan but I've read a few stories. 1y

Holy wow, what a ride! If you like epic fantasy you really need to give this series a try. This book is the 2nd of 3 planned. The women really come into their own in this book and drive the story and the action and end up (literally) ruling the world. Highly recommended. 5🌟
Another ✔️ off my TBR list and a ✔️for finishing a series (published so far)!!

I'm scared to start reading this. What is my problem? Well, it's bound to be viciously intense and also the last. Must get psyched up. #finishtheseries

DGRachel It's a roller coaster ride, and so incredibly good. I wish I could read it again for the first time. Enjoy!! 2y

I need to #finishtheseries (these) before I have to re-read them all. Oh gosh. I can't afford that. When did my reading life get so overbooked?

Ain't no way I'll be in a real #readathon b/c too much babysitting to do today. But I get to start the last in my current #Arthurian legend retelling series! (While 2yo naps. A lot.)
