June Books Read: Part 1

Still reading around here! Here is my finished book list so far for June. I love summer because I have time to read.:)
  1. The Naming by Alison Croggon (good Tolkienesque fantasy for young adults; the library only had the first one in the series so I am going to have to track down the rest)
  2. Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (love, love, love this book!)
  3. Body Surfing by Anita Shreve (good!)
  4. Testimony by Anita Shreve (good)
  5. Blindness by Jose Saramoga (I have not seen the movie but the book was fantastic. It is very, very dark. It is interesting how none of the characters have names; they are only referred to as the doctor, the doctor's wife, the girl with the sunglasses, etc. Definitely recommend this one but it is not a light read.)
  6. Lock and Key by Sarah Dressen (enjoyed this one/ young adult)
  7. Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser (I started this way back in February and finally finished. Interesting book but not my favorite.)

I *adored* The Time Traveler's Wife, too! I plan to re-read it soon ... just to enjoy the adventure again.

My mother passed along Blindness to me but I haven't read it. I watched the movie on Netflix some time ago and it was beyond disturbing! Not sure I can handle the book.
