Howl's Moving Castle - Diana Wynne Jones

June '17 Wrap Up

Luckily, this month I figured out the best way to make review notes without traumatizing myself:

46 - Heirs and Graces (Her Royal Spyness #7) by Rhys Bowen - 2 stars - A weak sequel in this amazing cozy mystery series.
47 - God in Pink by Hasan Namir - 3 stars - a difficult read, lots of violence and waxing between dream and reality, I liked it but probably won't read it.
48 - Wig in the Window by Kristen Kittscher - 4 stars - this was an amazing middle-grade sleuth story.
49 - Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour - 3.5 stars - this was so charming, but somehow...
50 - George by Alex Gino - ROOT #5 - 4.5 stars - I adored this. I cried. Read it!
51 - Star-Crossed by Barbara Dee - 4.5 stars - what a fabulous middle grade story exploring shakespeare and queer identity!
52 - Lambs Can Always Become Lions (Until Lambs Become Lions #1) by Charlotte Anne Hamilton - 3.5 stars - I'm a sucker for the idea that Robin Hood was a woman, a charming love story.
53 - Shadow and Bone (Shadow and Bone #1) by Leigh Bardugo - 4 stars - though this is her debut, it's clear Leigh Bardugo is a master of nuance.
54 - Leo Loves Aries (Signs of Love #1) by Anyta Sunday - 2.5 stars - I'm curious how she carries the horoscope conceit, but tropes make this fall flat. 377
55 - Leo Tops Aries (Signs of Love #1.5) by Anyta Sunday - See above review.
56 - Arrows Fletched with Peacock Feathers by Claudia Quint - 4 stars - I really liked taking a look at the villains of Robin Hood, with some queer questioning thrown in.
57 - The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #3) by Rick Riordan - 4.5 stars - I cried.
58 - The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #4) by Rick Riordan - 4.5 stars - and then I cried some more.
