Books I plan to read in June

One of my favorite book blogs, The Deliberate Reader, has a monthly link up called “New on the Stack”. It’s a preview of the books that she has added to her stack during the previous month and plans to read this month.

Here’s the list of books I hope to get to this month. I will definitely add some additional ones along the way, but this is a start.

Hit by Delilah S. Dawson
How did I get it: I borrowed it from the library.
Why did I get it: I reserved it from the library a while ago and I’ve been on the waiting list for a while. I think I read about it in a Goodreads newsletter about new YA fiction.

Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale
How did I get it: I borrowed it from the library electronically.
Why did I get it: After I returned The Princess in Black to the library after reading it with my son, I thought I’d look up Hale’s other books for kids. I was reminded that she wrote Austenland (one of my favorite Austen fan fiction books), so I decided I should read some of her other YA/adult books as well. I found I already had this book on my to read list.

The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty
How did I get it: I borrowed the audiobook from the library.
Why did I get it: It’s the only Moriarty book I haven’t read yet. She is one of my favorite authors.

Me & Emma by Elizabeth Flock
How did I get it: I found it on my bookshelf. I got it from a work book exchange cubicle a few years ago and had forgotten about it.
Why did I get it: It’s the first book of my summer reading challenge.

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
How did I get it: I borrowed it from the library.
Why did I get it: It’s my June pick for Modern Mrs. Darcy’s 2015 reading challenge. This month’s requirement is to read a book not originally written in English.

Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes
How did I get it: I bought the paperback from Amazon. I own the Kindle version, which I read in early 2013.
Why did I get it: I am starting a low carb diet again, and I want to re-read parts of this book. It’s too hard to find the parts I want to read on the Kindle version since I didn’t bookmark anything.

The Life List by Lori Nelson Spielman
How did I get it: I bought the Kindle book.
Why did I get it: I saw it on Modern Mrs. Darcy’s book deal list, I had some Amazon No-Rush Shipping credits, and I’ve had this book on my to read list for a while.

    1. You definitely will! I read my first one last August, and I've plowed through the rest in less than a year. I've loved them all, except "The Hypnotist's Love Story". Happy reading!

    1. Thanks! I'll be reviewing The Life List in a week or two once I get to it. It's the next ebook I'll read. I always have one ebook, one eaudiobook, one paper book, and one CD audiobook going at a time.
