June is done and we’re officially halfway through the year! This was a slower month for reading, a combination of my weekends being busy and my chosen books being a bit large and meaty. My backlist reading has suffered a little this month, but in the positive, one of my 2019 reads is a STRONG contender for Best Book of the Year! July I’m hoping to play whackamole with my ARCs and then free up some time for more backlist.
Sigh….another month gone by, another month where I failed to tackle my series read goal. On the plus side, this month I will have read both released books in the the SHADOW OF THE FOX series, making me up-to-date on this trilogy! Next month I WILL read WORDS OF RADIANCE. Nothing is going to stop me, that is the true goal of July!
