June's Reading Plans (2014)

I'm feeling very moody with my reading lately.  I get this way sometimes where I want to read ALL of the books but I can't settle on any.  I love coming up with monthly reading plans but this time it was really hard for me settle on what I actually want to read.  So I'm reserving the right to go completely off pile this month :)  As long as I actually get lots of reading done, I will be happy.  I'm off to a good start as I've already finished one book so there you go.  Here are some of the books that I'm hoping to read this month:
  • The Girl Who Disappeared Twice by Andrea Kane- This is my current read.  I read the third book in this series out of order last year (and really enjoyed it) so I'm going back to the beginning.  All I can tell you is that it is good so far.
  • Full Moon Rising by Keri Arthur- This will be a reread for me.  I'm craving some good paranormal romance, and I've been wanting to get back to this series.  I'm really looking forward to reading this one again!
  • Banishing the Dark by Jenn Bennett- Eek!  This is a series ending book, and I want to read it SO BADLY yet I don't want it to end.  I can't wait long though after finishing Binding the Shadows (what an ending!!)  Review copy.
  • Soulless by Gail Carriger- Another reread.  I'm in the mood for rereading apparently.  This is a series that I absolutely ADORE but have never finished.  I'm shaking my head at myself here.  I'm planning on rereading the first three and then finally continuing on.  I have a thing about not finishing series (but that is a post for a different day).
  • Aftertime by Sophie Littlefield- This is for the zombie reading club that Amy is hosting.  You should all know by now how much I love The Walking Dead, and Amy started this to tide us all over until the new season begins.  I have had this one on my shelves for way too long so gives me a great excuse to actually read it!
  • Mystic River by Dennis Lehane-  Another one off of my own shelves.  I actually gave this one to my Mom to read first, and she liked it so much that now I just have to read it :) 
  • The Mummy Case by Elizabeth Peters-  Do I really have to explain why I want to read this one??  I love, love, love this series and cannot wait to continue on with it!  This is very likely going to be my next read!
  • The Heiresses by Sara Shepard- Review copy.  This one sounds like a great summer read so I am really looking forward to it.  
  • House of the Rising Sun by Kristen Painter- 1st in a new urban fantasy series.  I love the cover on this one so of course I couldn't resist grabbing it from the library.  
  • Raven Black by Ann Cleeves- This is the first in a mystery series that I have been meaning to try for some time now.  I have been on a mystery kick this year so I can't wait to read this one as well!
Oh my goodness!  Look at all of those books....a bit ambitious once again.  I've got a good mix here though so it should help keep my moodiness at bay.  And if not I just put a bunch of books on hold at the library (I'm crazy) plus there are plenty on my ipad to keep me busy.  Here is to having lots of good books to look forward to!

What books are you looking forward to reading this month?  


  1. Looks like you have some great reading planned! Yay for Aftertime!

  2. I have a TON of NetGalley books. I started The Beekeeper's Ball by Susan Wiggs, which is excellent. I have a running memoir that I can't wait to get to, too. Then I don't know- I can never stick to a plan.

  3. Sam, I think you will keep yourself occupied for a long time! Enjoy your books.

  4. >>I get this way sometimes where I want to read ALL of the books but I can't settle on any.

    I know this feeling SO WELL. I get like this too -- I'm too excited about everything, but no one thing calls my name.

  5. Amy- There are a bunch of zombie reads that I am looking forward to now thanks to your zombie book group. Now I just need to make sure that I actually read it before you discuss rather than after :)

    Lisa- I'm not very good with sticking to plans either. But I love to try! A lot of times though I end up not reading from my list just because the books are on my list (if that makes any sense). I'm moody that way. I NEED to get back to running!

    Suko- Thanks! I'm looking forward to doing just that :)

    Jenny- That's it exactly! I usually end up going to a comfort read or I end up in a reading slump when I get like this. Because I just want to read them all but can't. I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
