June Books Read

So June was a fairly busy month and I was kinda on a break from reading, so my numbers are really LOW for this month. Oh well, there's always July...


Card - 448
This book was one of the major reasons that I didn't get much else read. I had a real hard time getting into the story, but I didn't want to stop until I had finished it. It was the concluding book in the Homecoming series, and while I really enjoyed the rest of the series, this one started with new characters, situations and naming conventions, and I was not a huge fan of it. So if you are interested, read the Homecoming series, but skip the last book, it really doesn't go anywhere you need to read.

Sara Pennypacker - 160
This was a fun and quick read of a girl (about 10) who is prone to trouble. I enjoyed this one a lot.

Hart's Hope
Card - 304
Card is known as a great writer, but some of his early books are weird, and this one fits into that category. I enjoyed reading it, but the story was very odd. The tale is of a boy who is finding out who he is. The world is controlled by magic and other forces. All in all the story was good, just go into it knowing that it is weird.

Total for June: 912
Total for 2009 thus far: 17548

Don't know if I've read Hart's Hope. And you are right, some of his earlier books are a little weird. I like his more contemporary stuff, as opposed to the fantasy stuff.
