I had a pretty good month, yes? Despite the lukewarm reaction that I had towards the last title, I thought that the books I read in May were really, pretty good. :)
Now, for June.
I am currently reading this chunkster with Kuya Doni over at the book club, which we agreed to finish within a couple of weeks, more or less.
|Death penalty drama.|
We've only begun to read it, so I could pretty much kiss most of June goodbye, judging by the length of this novel alone. BUT, I am hoping that I could still squeeze in other titles before the month is over, and I've decided on these two books:
Sci-fi and fantasy!
- Ender's Game (Ender's Saga, #1) by Orson Scott Card - Oh my husband would be so happy if he knew I'm finally picking this up. :P
- The Wizard of Earthsea (Earthsea Cycle, #1) by Ursula LeGuin - I've heard so many good things about this book and its author, so I thought it would be the perfect time I personally checked it out.
With all the (expected) drama overload from The Executioner's Song, I chose books from a completely opposite genre. Plus, it's also high time, I think, that I read Ender's Game, and A Wizard of Earthsea seemed to beckon to me from the shelf, so there. :)
EDIT: After hopping over to my buddy Angus' reading list for June, I realized I had committed to buddy-reading Ghostwritten with him at the end of the month.
I'm looking forward to reading another David Mitchell novel after the awesomeness that was Cloud Atlas. Yep, still raving about that one. :P
