June Recap

I can't believe that June is over already!  I listened to two audiobooks that I absolutely LOVED, two that I really liked, and one that left me feeling unfulfilled.  There were more two-star books than I expected and half of my four-star ratings were non-fiction war stories.  Not the happiest of subjects, but definitely powerful.

  1. I need to read Looking for Alibrandi! I've read Saving Francesca and Jellicoe but I haven't read that one yet! I saw someone else raving about Moloka'i, I need to check it out, too!
