June Reading Roundup

I'm behind on reviews but not reading. Though I decided that I am no longer going to review everything I read, there are still a couple of these that I need to review.


I won't be reviewing Fahrenheit 451 though I did enjoy reading it and discussing it with my daughter. Classics and mass market books are just not in need of my input. I will continue to review independently published novels, NetGalley ARCs, and books that I just feel like talking about.  ;-)


Reviews will be forthcoming for The Devil's Band and The Queen's Caprice.
