Total pages: 1452 (not counting audiobooks)

My favorite read: Rachel Simon, Story of Beautiful Girl

My least favorite read: Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why (I know, everyone else loves it.  I will eventually review it).

Analysis:
June was a really productive reading month for me even though it didn't feel like it.  I've been reading lots more review copies this summer, which is a time that I usually reserve for tackling chunksters.  This summer I have been attracted towards slim little books and e-books.  Not sure why; I'm just going with it.

Currently Reading:
1. Lola Shoneyin, The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives
2. Peter Mountford, A Young Man's Guide to Late Capitalism
3. Annie Paul Murphy,  Origins: How the Nine Months Before Birth Shape the Rest of Our Lives

  1. I love short books! Of the list you have posted, I have only read Bonjour Tristesse.

  2. I'm noticing that a few bloggers have either just finished Baba Segi's Wives or have it on their reading lists for this week. Happy reading.
