#50Books2013 - June Round-Up


Welcome to the - ever so slightly delayed - June round-up of #50Books2013, we're at the halfway point! How are you all doing?
Is anyone else finding that they have zero time for anything except school activities right now!? I'm swamped!

I'm languishing well behind everyone, STILL on book 16 a month later (shocking considering I am the linky host! Embarrassment!). Perhaps I'm not reading things that are holding my attention, because a good book that I really enjoy I find hard to put down because I want to know what happens next. I think I need to reevaluate the titles that I am choosing as well as trying to manage my time a little better.

What about the rest of you, though?

Mumturnedmom has three books on the go which really puts me to shame considering I am not even managing one at the moment! She's reviewed Strange Fits of Passion by Anita Shreve, and Bringing up Bebe by Pamela Druckerman which is the chosen title for the new book gathering Sara has joined, check out her review to see what she has to say about them.

Ups & Downs, Smiles & Frowns is on top form with her reviews (as always!) and this month shares her thoughts on the harrowing Little Prisoners by Casey Watson, which tells the sad tale of two 'unfosterable' children. Super-Reader Soph's June reads include A Dance With Dragons & A Feast For Crows, and she explains how reading for pleasure comes with a side order of guilt & procrastination, you can read more at Ignoring Life, One Book At A Time.

Little Super Sparks has enjoyed four books this month. Lucy has reviewed How to be a Good Wife by Emma Chapman as well as titles from Scott Westerfeld and Sian Busby, and finally Emma's Little World is up to book number eight, and shares her views on Smokin' Seventeen by Janet Evanovich and Adventures in Love, Life and Infertility By Leah Campbell amongst others.

Join in with us on Twitter using hashtag #50Books2013 and tell us about your recent reads and share reviews. If you would like to join in with us, you can find out all the information here.

The July Round-Up is going to be hosted by the lovely Sara at Ups & Downs, Smiles & Frowns (you can follow her on Twitter @OoSerzoO) at the end of the month because we're going to be on holiday & busy celebrating A's 15th birthday, so please look out for the link, visit & share! Email or tweet your reviews to Sara by 28th July to be included in the round-up please, thank you!

See you in August, I hope everyone has a lovely Summer! x

Yay! Really looking forward to hosting this months round up.
I'm not sure how many books I've read so far, possibly 20? I really need to edit my book list. :D x

After an awful May, I have managed to fit 2 in for June. Still only at 14 books though. :-( A lot of catching up to do! x

Really late this month with my round up - but pleased I've at least managed to get round to finding what everyone else has read.
