June books on my radar…

June books on my radar…

June 2, 2014 2014, Books on my radar 7

Each month I write about the books I’ve noticed and think might be good. Sometimes they’re from favorite authors and other times I get excited by some new author I might try. I don’t buy all the books (not during the month they’re released at least)–since I already have way too many books to read and sometimes these new books have high prices 🙁 But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of these books and I hope people reading my post may find some new books, too! June 3 I haven’t read any of the Elemental Masters series,… Read more »

I think I repeat myself enough as it is! Some of this is also repetitive since I’ve already reviewed most of these books. but anyway here goes… This has been a pretty good reading year for me so… Read more »
