June 2015 TBR

I expect June to be really weird. I only have a vague idea what I will feel like reading, so I will put this out there and see what happens.

Henrietta Lacks

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot - This is this month's book for my personal book club this month. I've heard it's fabulous, but also difficult.

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami - I started this last week. It meets the Read Harder Challenge of reading a book that takes place in Asia. I got about 30 pages in and it seemed pretty good, and it seems like a pretty quick read. The pages are short with lots of section breaks. This poor guy Tsukuru Tazaki had 4 best friends in high school, but he went away to college and they all stayed close, and then they decided they didn't want to be friends with him anymore. I guess the pilgrimage is to find out why.

Out of the Easy

Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys - This is on the high school list of Sequoyah nominees this year. Working on reading a bunch of those.


Angelmonster by Veronica Bennett - I've talked about this one before. It's a young adult novelization of Mary Shelley.

Boy Snow Bird

Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi - Another Read Harder Challenge book. It meets the challenge "read a book by an author from Africa."

A Walk in the Woods

A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson - This is a reread for me, but I just felt like reliving some Bill Bryson giggles. I've started it already, so I guess I'll put it on here as a goal.

So what is that 6 books? Yeah, 6. Sounds good.

What are you planning to read in June?

Ack! I forgot one!

All the Light

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr - My mom loaned me this one, and I need to read it and get it back to her!
