A week has already flown by in June…how has this happened? You know the old saying “April showers bring May flowers?” Here in the Northeast, it’s actually May showers bring June flowers. After a rather depressing May, June seems to have finally bloomed… and with it, allergies. They’ve kicked up and at the moment I can’t do much physical reading because my eyes hurt so badly. Hello, audiobooks.
I am in the middle of a few books, however. I’m once again sticking to my own bookshelves; my money is needed elsewhere this month, so I’m going to do my best not to buy any books (despite the fact I have a couple of books in series that I don’t own and am desperate to read…stay strong, Sarah).
The Legend of Eli Monpress
I bought this boo, which is an omnibus of the first three books in the series, last month,. I’ve already finished book one, The Spirit Thief, and am currently working on The Spirit Rebellion. I wasn’t overly impressed with the first book, but the second is shaping into what I originally hoped for the series.
The King’s Traitor (Audiobook)
Part of the Kingfountain series I began last month on audiobook, The King’s Traitor is the third installment. It’s begun a little slowly so I’ve taken a break, but as I mentioned… allergies. Tired eyes. I’ll be getting back to this very soon.
Another book I started last month and haven’t finished. I’m a bit wishy-washy on this one; it started out incredibly cheesy to the point I was cringing in a few places, but the story is finding its flow and just starting to get a bit interesting half-way through. It’s a quick read, so I plan to finish it, but I can already say I’m disappointed in this Dee Henderson book from the Uncommon Heroes series.
WWII Research Books
I’m leaving this vague; I have a slew of books on WWII that I’ve been collecting. June 6th was the 73rd anniversary of D-Day, and I chose that day to begin my research for a story set in WWII that has been on my mind for well over a year. I’m not saying I’ll finish any of these books this month, but I will be going through them slowly and making notes.
I have a few other books in mind I’d like to read, including some WWII historical FICTION books, but I’m not labeling them in my TBR because I have a feeling this month will be rather scattered, and I don’t want to limit myself in any way.
Do you have any special reading plans for June?
