post #202 of 203
I'm so behind posting my books for June, here's what I read:

34. A Year Down Yonder - Richard Peck
35. In the Hand of the Goddess (Song the Lioness, Book 2) - Tamora Pierce
36. City of Bones (Mortal Instruments, Book 1) - Cassandra Clare
37. The Woman Who Rides Like a Man (Song of the Lioness, Book 3) - Tamora Pierce
38. Lioness Rampant (Song of the Lioness, Book 4) - Tamora Pierce
39. City of Ashes (Mortal Instruments, Book 2) - Cassandra Clare
40. The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
41. Wild Magic (Immortals, Book 1) - Tamora Pierce
42. The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency - Alexander McCall Smith
43. Wolf Speaker (Immortals, Book II) - Tamora Pierce
44. The Emporer Mage (Immortals, Book III) - Tamora Pierce

Everything I read was pretty awesome! A Year Down Yonder was just as good as A Long Way from Chicago. Loved the Song of the Lioness quartet! I'm really enjoying the Immortals quartet by Pierce as well. Hunger Games kept me and DH up way past our bedtime - so intense. Can't wait for the sequel to come out in September! The Mortal Instruments is fun/intense YA paranormal. And I'm glad I finally made it through The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency - I'll definitely read more in that series (especially since my mom has them all ).

A Grand Design involving the entire course of history and all of time and space that, for some unfathomable reason, chose to work out its designs with cats and croquet mallets and penwipers, to say nothing of the dog. And a hideous piece of Victorian artwork. And us."

I am happy to report that they have cell phones ("handhelds") in this book I liked Princess Arjumand (she writes cats really well) as much as I liked Montmorency from Three Men in a Boat.

Glad to see that you liked it!
