June Wrap-Up and July TBR

In the month of June, I read a total of 6 books.

The first book that I finished this month was a nonfiction audiobook about the Titanic, called Iceberg Right Ahead! The Tragedy of the Titanic. This was a really short book about the sinking of the Titanic, and the before and after regarding the ship. It was informational and I enjoyed listening to it.

Following that, I finished one of the two books that I definitely wanted to complete during this month, Anatomist's Wife. I loved this book, and am looking forward to finishing the series as soon as possible.

The next nonfiction audiobook that I listened to was Terrible Typhoid Mary. I gave this book 2 stars, and it wasn't necessarily because it was a horrible book - although it was slightly boring the way it is told, and because I found some of the information to be unnecessary. My problem was that I felt there was a lot of bias from Susan Campbell Bartoletti, and how she makes a lot of assumptions throughout the book. I might also be somewhat biased in my opinion of the book because I have a degree in Biology. Which leads to the other reason I didn't really like this novel, it didn't really add any new information in regards to what I already had learned about Mary Mallon in my classes, which was a little disappointing.

I also listened to my first audiobook by Erica Spindler, Justice for Sara, which was a fantastic introduction to this author. I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook. And my first book by Elizabeth Hoyt, For the Love of Pete, which was another audiobook that I was able to get done.

The next book that I read in the month of June (which technically I didn't read all of the book because it's a choose-your-own romance, and I only read the romance plots that intrigued me) was My Lady's Choosing. I wasn't a fan and was rather disappointed because this was one of my highly anticipated releases for this year.cnav


For the month of July, I have some of the same books on my TBR because I did not get to read many of the physical books on June's TBR and instead listened to a lot of audiobooks.

Two of the books that are a top priority for me to finish this month are Sweet Revenge and Mortal Arts. Both of these books are books that I have already started, and hope to complete fairly soon. That being said, I am also going to try to complete as many of Anna Lee Huber's Lady Darby Mystery books that I can (because I am hoarding the series from my library in both physical and ebook copy). Another priority is the audiobook that I am currently listening to, and that is Hating Game.


Three other books that I would love to get to during this month are Anatomy of Death (also known as Dissection of Murder), Anatomist's Apprentice, and Silent in the Grave. These books were also on my TBR for last month and still remain. Along with these three, I have also added one more book to the list that I would love to get to and that is Mesmerized.


The next books on my TBR are an "if I get the chance" read, but I'm not aiming to complete them, and that is two more books by Elizabeth Hoyt writing under Julia Harper, and they are Hot and Once and Always. And one book by Sarah McCoy that I received an ARC of, which is Marilla of Green Gables.
