So how did your reading month pan out?


  1. June was a very productive month for you. I always enjoy reading your break downs, if only I could be that organized.

  2. Fantastic month in books.
    A lot of great titles listed.
    Happy July reading!

  3. Such a productive month! I think I'll do my post tomorrow.

  4. Wow, you've read all over the world this month. Great job.

  5. Sounds like you had a great reading month. Will post my month wrap up tomorrow evening.

  6. I need to listen to Mary Alice Monroe's The Summer Wind...I loved the first and am eager to continue the series. I also need to read the Robyn Carr book - I am really loving the Thunder Point series. I have the book, just haven't had the time to read it yet.

    I love how you include you incoming books in your monthly post...something to think about possibly including in my posts. I usually include them in my weekly Sunday post, but never track how much I spent. Definitely something to think about...

  7. I enjoy your monthly posts. It looks like you've had a great month. I enjoyed Still Life With Bread Crumbs and Monroe's series. Enjoy all of your new books!

  8. 16 books! I didn't do too bad in June with 8, which is good for me. And all of them were 4 stars or higher, so yay for that! I can't wait to see what you think of The Accidents of Marriage! I love that you add the part of where you read into the post - I never think of that while I'm reading a book, unless it's set in Seattle because I'm obsessed with going there. Lol. I need to pay more attention to that while I'm reading!

    I also have the new Susan Wiggs and Kristin Higgans books - hope they are good!

    Great month you had!

  9. So many books acquired, that's amazing! I've been thinking about calculating the cost of the books I buy every month, but I'm almost afraid to find out. I hope you have a great July as well!

  10. Great reading month! I am jealous that you got If You Only Knew.

  11. You always seem to have a great reading month! Thanks for hosting! :)

  12. What a great idea... I didn't know there was a monthly wrap-up linky. I'll have to join in at the end of this month. Can you remind me... (I seem to be drowning in things-I'm-forgetting) lately!

  13. Deborah, sure will. Will put a reminder on Facebook or Twitter and if you get to it good. If not the important things is to just be!
