While June is the start of summer in other parts of the world, here in the Philippines, it's start of the rainy season. Meh. Rain is cool when you're just in bed, but not so much when you have to go to work and commute. Meh.
Anyway, on to my reading list... I have no idea why I requested book reviews to publishers. Thus, instead of lowering my pile, I added to it. But I have good books...
The first book in The Keepers of Life trilogy, The Marked Son by Shea Berkley
NETGALLEY: The first in the lyrical, exciting Keepers of Life trilogy by new talent Shea Berkley. Seventeen-year-old Dylan Kennedy always knew something was different about him. When Dylan sees a girl in white in the woods behind his grandparents' farm, he knows he's seen her before in his dreams. He's felt her fear and heard her insistence that only he can save her world from an evil lord who uses magic and fear to feed his greed for power.
And I also have the second and third books:
The Fallen Prince (The Keeper's of Life #2) by Shea Berkley
The Rising King (The Keeper's of Life #3) by Shea Berkley
I also got Life After Juliet by Shannon Lee Alexander
NETGALLEY: Becca Hanson is a reader-a voracious reader. And with all those fictional friends, she never had time for real ones. Plus real ones come with uncontrollable quirks, like constantly filling a room with song, drawing on any available surface, and worst of all, dying. Real friends are more trouble than they're worth. Since her best-and only-real friend Charlotte's death six months before, Becca has returned to a life of books in order to distance herself from heartache and constant loneliness as her junior year at Sandstone High begins.
When a class project forces her into the Drama Club, she attracts the attention of not one, but TWO guys involved in the production, onstage and off. Meanwhile, she's still dealing with the grief of Charlotte's death--the fact that Charlie is away at MIT--and that she finally has to build a life for herself on her own terms. Ultimately she learns more about who she is, what she wants, how she feels--and how to find what she's looking for. (And while she isn't sure what comes next, she's pretty sure there'll be more kissing involved.)
Thank you Entangled Teen for these books!
For physical copies, I am hoping to finish:
Lost in the City by Edward P. Jones
Lost in a Good Book by Jasper Fforde
Funny, eh? They both start with "Lost". :)
That's all folks for my June reading list. It's a little bit ambitious, but we'll see. :)
How about you? What will you be reading this month?
