Marcia is Amused.

Jul 01 2012
What I read in June:
The Twin’s Daughter by Lauren Baratz-Logsted
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman
Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
A Naked Singularity by Sergio de la Pava
The Scourge by A.G. Henley
The Girl with Curious Hair by David Foster Wallace
I loved everything this month except Monsters of Men (SO GLAD THAT SERIES IS OVER) and The Twin’s Daughter. A Naked Singularity is a fucking standout, please read it. The Snow Child is unexpectedly intriguing and magical - then intriguing and not magical, which makes it even more special. And Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children has such a spectacular premise and lives up to it (also, I read it on my iPhone Kindle app and then compared my experience to a paper copy of the book and felt that reading it on my phone was not a detriment - plus I could zoom in on the photograhs).
GoodReads says I’m 3 books ahead of my challenge to read 100 books in 2012, 53 so far. Be my friend there.
Page stats: 20,886 read this year, 3,361 this month. I kind of love these page stats. The Scourge was 320 pages but such a quick read - I read it in about 3 hours yesterday. And it’s available on Kindle for $2.99! I didn’t feel like I read that much this month because I stalled on The Girl with Curious Hair's last novella-length story for over a week - but I eventually powered through. And A Naked Singularity, while 698 pages, never felt long, as it was so intriguing, but at times I didn't want to pick it back up as I was worried about the life choices that the main character was making.
