What I read this month

Despite it being a pretty crazy busy month, I read more in June than I have for a while. Mind you, much of that was started and stopped. But in some cases I read well into the books before finally dropping them, so hey, that’s still reading.
It’s not satisfying reading, but it’s still reading.
Beggars can’t be choosers, and all that.

Here’s how the month shook out:

Read
Agent to the Stars – John Scalzi

Started and stopped
Wake – Robert J. Sawyer
Feed – M.T. Anderson
Untethered Sky – Fonda Lee
Sleeping Giants – Sylvain Neuvel
Storm Front – Jim Butcher

Reading
Starter Villain – John Scalzi

As I mentioned on Mastodon recently, there’s a unique disappointment from getting well into a book that you then find out isn’t to your tastes for some reason and so — despite having put in precious time to read it — you put it down and move onto something hopefully better suited to you. There’s probably a lengthy German word for that specific kind of disappointment, because of course there would be.

All of which ended with me scoring a library ebook copy of Starter Villain, the latest novel by John Scalzi, who long ago demonstrated that his work is always and forever my cup of tea.

Looking forward to what books July may bring.
