June Wrap Up

This month I read 9 books for a total of 3,080 pages and an average of 103 pages per day. Long Way was by far my favorite book, but The Serpent King was a close second. The Burning Light was also a fantastic novella.

I’m also experiencing technical difficulties with basically all of my images, thanks to a dick move by Photobucket, so bear with me for the foreseeable future.

Also, I’m adding pictures to my wrap-ups again, because…well because.

First Sentence: His mother glides across the flagstone patio slowly, hips and long legs working in time with the music, a kind of undulating dance that reminds Miles of the way tall grass moves just before a thunderstorm.
