June has been quite a slow reading month for me. After reading the outstanding book, HHhH, everything else seems poor in comparison. I’ve abandoned almost everything I’ve started and have been unable to concentrate on a single book for any length of time as nothing is engaging enough. Hopefully I’ll find another gem soon and get back on track.

Plans for July
The Booker longlist is announced on 25th July so I plan to try a few of the contenders and then come up with my prediction for the longlist.
I also plan to take part in Winstonsdad’s Spanish Literature Month by finishing The Hand of Fatima by Ildefonso Falcones and reading The Seamstress by Maria Duenas.
I also hope to read most of these books:
Dirt by David Vann
The Watch by Joydeep Roy-Bhattacharya
Flight by Adam Thorpe
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo
The Portrait by Iain Pears
Zeitoun by David Eggers
I hope you have a wonderful July!
