MountainKat | 8759 comments Let's reflect on the best and worst of the previous month's books.....

I know I can get so focused on what is next that I forget about all the wonderful books I read for the previous month's challenges! It's the Fourth of July weekend for us in the US, a time for parades, BBQs and fireworks, but I bet most of us find a little bit of reading time too! Do you have big plans for the weekend or the rest of summer? Let us know!

Did you find some gems last month? DNF a few? Find your new book boyfriend or a heroine who personifies TSTL? Come on, we all want to know! What were your standouts for June? Are you looking forward to anything special in July?

MountainKat | 8759 comments Wow, I had 3 books I gave 5 stars in June! For me, 5 stars is as much about how the book makes me feel, especially when I'm finished. If I sit back and thing, wow that was great and I'm so glad I read it - that's the best! Last month, Treachery in Death, Joy Ride and Mister Moneybags all made me feel that way!

Then there were the books that were 'just' really good - Every Little Thing, Buns, Royally Matched and This Duchess of Mine. There were a few more, but those were the best of the rest! No duds either! =)

Robin (Robinmy) | 62 comments This is an easy question. My only 5-Star book was The Hating Game by Sally Thorne The Hating Game by Sally Thorne. It's one of the best I've read all year.

Another good book (4.5 Stars) that I read in June was Chilled (Bone Secrets, #2) by Kendra Elliot Chilled by Kendra Elliot.

JoAnne | 930 comments Because I liked The Sound of Glass by Karen White, I looked at some of her other books. I started her mystery/ghost series, which I like very much. The first one is The House on Tradd Street. Finished the second one yesterday. The Girl On Legare Street

I gave them 4 stars each.
