June Book Wrap Up

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post for this blog, and I decided to do something different and bookish.  So for this post I’m going to do a June wrap up of what I read in the month of June.  I started one book in May and finished that book in June so I’m counting it as read in June.

For June I read a total of five books and I’m really happy with that number.  I’m also five books ahead of my 15 book goal for the 2015 Goodreads reading challenge.  So far I have read 12 out of 15 books.

So for books that I have read in June:

Red Sox University by Andy Wasif- This is the book that I started in May, but I read the majority of it in June.  I found the book to be quite entertaining, at times sarcastic, but at the same time there was truth to it.

Red Sox Fans are from Mars Yankees Fans are From Uranus by Andy Wasif- This book was hilarious, my favorite part of the book was when the Red Sox and Yankees were compared to Cain and Abel.  If you know the story of Cain and Abel, you know that Cain became jealous of Abel.  It’s kind of like how for the longest time Red Sox fans were jealous of Yankees fans and the Yankees.

I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzi- If you haven’t read this book, you definitely should.  There are so many important things and lessons to be learned from this book.  It is my favorite book that I have read so far this year, and I found it so inspiring and it made me realize how much we take things, such as education for granted.  In the United States education is something that the majority of us have the right to have, while people in Pakistan and other third world countries have to fight for their right to an education.

Winnie The Pooh by A.A. Milne- When I was younger I watched The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh and I have all the Winnie The Pooh books but haven’t read them all.  This is a really cute story about love and friendship.

The House At Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne- This book is the first book in the Winnie The Pooh series in which we are introduced to Tigger.  In this book Pooh and Piglet build a house for Eeyore.  Pooh and Piglet also search but never find Heffalumps, which are supposedly scary creatures.  I think Winnie The Pooh books are enjoyable for all ages.

I am currently reading Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.
