June 2016 Recap

I'd hoped to keep my reading momentum from May rolling into June, but I kind of stalled. Falling asleep on the couch with a book open in my lap, on weeknights in particular, was kind of the story of my life for the month and why I didn't get a whole bunch of reading accomplished, lol.

Overall, though, June was a very good month, mostly because I got to stand in the presence of Ms. Maggie Stiefvater! I still have to look at the pictures from that night and my signed copy of The Raven Boys to remind me that it really happened.

I also turned another year older in June and am officially a year away from a milestone number. That number is not 30. :O Oh how I wish that I were 30 and that I could get a do-over on so many things. Ah, well, enough depressing off-topic talk and back to books!

My favorite read of June was actually a novella:

My review for this is going up on Monday, but in a nutshell, Poison or Protect is vintage Gail Carriger: uproariously witty and brimming with fantastic characters. This one is also utterly swoon-worthy.

Of course I'm also choosing a quote from Poison or Protect as my favorite quote of the month. I just love the humor in Gail Carriger's works:

Gavin tried not to stare at the lobster. He decided not to inquire further. Whatever Jack's reasoning, best to accept that crustaceans were necessary to his view of the world.
