Excuse the corn. July’s here and with this month’s arrival comes a new TBR. New stories. New escapes. New adventures. Literary fiction. Young adult. Adult fiction. These genres fill my list’s scopes.
Will I stick to the list? I’m pretty sure. But, sometimes a new book sashays my way and steals my attention. Who can blame me? I’m sensitive to shiny new things. Somehow I have a feeling a short story or two will sneak through the month. Maybe even an audiobook.
Summer’s well on its way with cookouts, parades, road trips and my top 5 bookish activity list I created (More about that soon!). My list excludes stories that are slow and heavy, but thrilling nonetheless.
…and away we go!
Memorial Day’s come and gone. Summer’s unofficial in its arrival, but who’s complaining. June’s jumpin’ around my house. My oldest son’s graduating high school. My youngest’s next move is fifth grade. Besides signing forms, attending orientation, and trying to peel my youngest off the wall to attend camp, I’m reading.
I have a ton of ARCs at my disposal requiring my attention. They challenge me because they’re eBooks and I’m a printed book fan. eBooks require more from me because my eyes strain after a while on my Kindle, so I’m doing my best to push through the pain to achieve my reading fix.
I own a total of six, count them, six ARCs. Chances are, I’ll read four of them.
High goal. Will I shoot and score?
What I Plan to Read
Some ARCs may carryover to July. However, I’m pushing four because I have stacks of printed books I want to attack.
What do you plan to read this month? Share below and we’ll attack June together.
With a myriad of choices knocking at my door, I chose five books (more or less) to read.
- White Fur by Jardine Libaire (ebook/Penguin’s First To Read arc). I wish I had this book in printed form. I’m loving its story. Its fire burns my soul. White Fur
- Paper Girls Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughn (Mine!). After hearing a lot of good noise about this graphic novel, I bought the book. Graphic novels never see the light of day with me. I patronize their film or t.v. adaptation, but never read them. How odd, right? Well, a good reader leaves his or her comfort zone and picks a form or genre untouched. Also, the story’s setting – 1988 – and characters’ age (12) gave me instant nostalgic connection (My age during the same year). I couldn’t resist. Paper Girls
