What I've Been Reading - Books Finished in April, May, and June


Later this week I will be posting what I am currently reading, but since I (FINALLY!) have caught up with my reading enough to be on track with my Goodreads goal (for half a minute at least!), I have lots of finished books to share. That's why the separate post.

REVIEW 


DNF:
I think the main character is boring and I cannot take her anymore.
My Review
I read most of this but ended up being unable to finish.
I really tried with this one because I have heard great things about Elizabeth Berg, but this read like an encyclopedia entry instead of a novel. How anyone can make George Sand's life boring and tedious is beyond my comprehension.


I haven't really been keeping up with my stats this calendar year, but I'm going to include the total page numbers read this week for when I eventually do end up doing something with my stats.

TOTAL PAGES READ SINCE 4/11: 5,622
TOTAL PAGES READ IN 2016: 7,009
# OF BOOKS READ IN 2016: 41

 Whew! Finally all caught up!  What have you been reading lately?  Anything really good or really bad?  Share in the comments! :)
