Every first Wednesday of the month, I’ll be posting a roundup of the month just gone, and writing about what’s to come in the next few weeks.
Last month I read a total of ten books: Vortex (Insignia #2) by S.J. Kincaid, Promise of Blood (The Powder Mage #1) by Brian McClellan, The Witch Hunter (The Witch Hunter #1) by Virginia Boecker, Way Down Dark (The Australia Trilogy #1) by James Smythe, Time Salvager by Wesley Chu, The Great Bazaar and Brayan’s Gold (Demon Cycle #1.5) by Peter V. Brett, Armada by Ernest Cline, The Ships of Aleph by Jaine Fenn, The Parthenon by Mary Beard and The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North.
I managed to read more this year, due to handing in my thesis and having no work to do – what a relief! 😉 I read some really great books this month. Time Salvager and Armada really stood out, and the latter was definitely worth the wait.
- I read five books towards the DC vs Marvel Challenge. Next month’s villain is Bane, and I’ve already managed to select my books to defeat him.
- I have currently read 41 books towards my Goodreads goal.

I really loved Armada too, and Time Salvager is next on my list. Wow 10 books! That’s a lot. I need to count up my books for June:-)
Well after finishing my thesis, I made use of my free time to read guilt-free 😀
Oh I can’t wait to get Armada! I should really go and buy a copy, I’ve been looking forward to it for so long. And Way Down Dark has a cool cover — I just read the synopsis and it looks interesting. What did you think of it?
Do it! I need to actually buy myself a physical copy, that and Ready Player One which I borrowed from the library before.
Way Down Dark was good, it was really a refreshing YA novel – my review is scheduled for 19th July 🙂
I’m just getting back into reading the Powder Mage trilogy! I read Promise of Blood last year, and are going back and reading all of the novellas leading up to it.
I was pretty disappointed by it to be honest 😦 However, my reading time was really broken up, so I might give it a re-read next year and try and read it in a few sessions instead, see if it’s more enjoyable that way.
I’m glad you loved Armada! I want to read it soooo badly!
First time visitor, and I have to say I love your blog design. 🙂
Get it asap! 😀 Thanks Angie!
