A few weeks back, a lot of people were throwing the question out there, 'how does summer affect your reading habits?' I thought about it and didn't come to any great conclusion. Until now. I can look at the books I read in July and just know that my attention span over the summer shrinks to the bare minimum. I'm only picking up short, quick (albeit emotional) children's books. I have one adult book on my list and as it's a Meg Cabot, I'm thinking it almost doesn't count! Favourite book of the month? Tough one.
1. Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
2. Lottery by Beth Goobie
3. What My Mother Doesn't Know by Sonya Sones
4. Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me? by Louise Rennison
5. The Savage by David Almond
6. Life on the Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers
7. Queen of Babble Gets Hitched by Meg Cabot
8. Are We There Yet? by David Leviathan
9. Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers
10. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
11. Fairest by Gail Carson Levine
12. Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
13. Ways To Live Forever by Sally Nicholls
14. Jake's Tower by Elizabeth Laird
15. Stop Pretending by Sonya Sones
16. The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
17. This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
18. Rumble Fish by S.E. Hinton
The thing with these books is that I'm finding them hard to review. Have y'all noticed that this blog has not been updated very regularly of late? No? Well, it hasn't been. Partially due to a looming deadline for my latest assignment, mostly laziness, but also a huge dip in my enthusiasm for blogging lately. So maybe you could do me a great favour? Previously on Weekly Geeks, they've asked readers to submit questions about certain books to be answered in a review. Please, please do ask questions. Anything I've read this month that I haven't reviewed. I did review seven books already, but still. Eleven books to choose from, there must be one book there that you want to know more about, right? (Also, if you could help me out with questions for the following books, that would be awesome)
Small Island by Andrea Levy
Falling Man by Don DeLillo
Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian by Marina Lewycka
Also, did you notice that I've read four Sarah Dessen novels this month? She's my latest favourite author. Can't get enough of her. I'd be hard pushed to answer which has been favourite so far. I'm leaning towards Just Listen or This Lullaby. I don't know. I flip-flop between them all. I'm thinking that maybe I was overly harsh on That Summer and might go back to give it another chance.
Someone Like You
Keeping the Moon
The Truth About Forever
Lock and Key
Along For the Ride
