Best of the Bunch: June 2015

Today I'm sharing the best book I read in June.

My reading has picked back up again in the past month, helped in no small part by our recent kid-less vacation. (Some people dread long flights; I say, "Five hours of uninterrupted reading time? Heck yes!")

I've enjoyed several of the books I've read recently, but only one in the past month earned a rare 5-star review from me:

I went into this book knowing little about it (I didn't even know it was YA) and that turned out to be a good thing. Every time I thought the author was falling back on a well-worn trope, she surprised me, yet the story and dialogue still felt familiar and true enough to be realistic. Just as the main character drops tiny, maddening hints of truth to those around her, so does the author only slowly reveal her back story to the reader. Well done and worth a read.

  1. Ha, I feel the exact same way about plane rides! I buy new books just for long flights.

  2. Isn't it great? And I can't even distract myself with the Internet on most flights. Sometimes I specifically bring books I'm having a hard time getting into so that I can focus!

  3. This book sounds pretty good! I'll have to add it to my already very long TBR list :)

  4. I feel you -- my TBR is 350 right now!

  5. Okay, now I don't feel so bad. I have 150. Lol
