June was a good month for me. It was my birthday and I had a fantastic day out in London with my husband and a lovely party with friends. The warmer weather enabled me to sit in the garden and so I probably read slightly more than usual too.
Overall the quality was good and I abandoned very few books. The highlights were The Noonday Demon: An Anatomy of Depression by Andrew Solomon and My Notorious Life by Kate Manning. After writing my review I realised that Andrew Solomon is the only author I’ve given two five stars to. This makes him my new favourite author! It feels a bit strange having a non-fiction author in the top spot as I always thought I preferred fiction, but I think my tastes are slowly changing and I can see myself reading more non-fiction in the future.

Plans for July
My post about 2013 being a disappointing year for fiction highlighted some fantastic books that I hadn’t read yet. I put them all to the top of my TBR pile and as a result I think I have an amazing month ahead. I’m a bit worried that I’ll leave no good books for the rest of the year, but hopefully I’ll be able to unearth more as time goes on. It can’t be possible to read too many good books in one month can it?!
I hope you have a wonderful July!
