Lowest and highest ratings... DNF excluded, 1 star (overall rating 1.5) and 5 stars (overall rating 4.6) Pretty good, I must say. Only one 3 star rating and three 4 star ratings. Happy with that.
Book boyfriend of the month... Oh, yikes! My favorite, yet least favorite aspect of the recap. On one hand, yayyy! Book boyfriends equal fangirling and gushing. On the other hand, oh no! I have to pick one. Ok, ok. I have three I want to name, but one is a clear winner: The three being Kaidan (Sweet Peril), Carson (All Lined Up) and the winner of June's Book Boyfriend? Dylan, can we have a drum roll/solo please?
Ben Morris from Five Ways to Fall. Tadaa!
Seriously, guys! This guy is evercharming, hilarious, hottttt and educated. He's sweet, caring, honest and even though a total commitment-phobe, he sure knows how to make women feel good. Just ask Reese ;) He's simply..
Love triangles? Yes, unfortunately. There was a mild one in Five Ways to Fall since it features an ex-husband for the female lead and Ben being the fake boyfriend, but it wasn't that high on the love triangle factor scale (Lauren's rating system for triangles), in my opinion. Now, now. Storm Born, on the other hand, was a totally different story. Let's just say that "ughh, that freakin' love triangle" >.< Do not go anywhere near this series if you want to avoid one!
Suck and sweet? Suck is that I ended up thoroughly disliking a book that absolutely everyone loves. And by everyone, I mean everyone. Not even going to review this book, I think. I've seen what happens to people who dare to express their dislike. Nope, not going to do that to myself. Sweet though? I have two: Finally more than 2000 pages read since March and finally a 5 star read since March. Woooot!!
What I'm planning on reading this month... Not going to make any huge plans, but I will read Heart of Venom by Jennifer Estep since I need to catch up as the 11th book is coming out this month and I only have the 9th to read (10th is the prequel story I'm not really interested in). Annnnd I also want to read Racing Savannah since 1) it was on my top ten summer tbr list; 2) it's summer and Miranda Kenneally is a must! :)
What were your favorite books last month? Any new book boyfriends I should know about? (Or any old crushes returning to the pages you were reading?) ;) How many books did you read? What are you planning on reading this month?
