Wrap Up

I’m returning to monthly wrap ups and to be read posts, so here is my monthly wrap up for June!

June Wrap Up

In June I read TWO books:

  1. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
  2. The Circle by Dave Eggers

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick

[review] 4* – I loved Dick’s world building and the philosophical elements considering what makes us human, how empathy controls us and a vision of the future that doesn’t feel impossible. I found it a bit slow to get into, and a little slow to finish, but overall I rated it 4 stars for an entertaining and imaginative read.

The Circle by Dave Eggers

[review] 5* – Eggers creates an interesting discussion about the use of social media and both its limitations and its dangers. I found it super interesting and thought provoking and rated it 5 stars for it’s vision of the very near future with social media assuming ultimate control of the our society operates.


During June I’ve also been reading FOUR other books:

  1. The Art of Fiction by David Lodge
  2. Player Piano by Kurt Vonnegut
  3. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
  4. Neuromancer by William Gibson

I’ll let you know what I thought of these in my July Wrap Up and their individual book review posts!

I haven’t done a monthly wrap up in what feels like forever, so here’s what I’ve been reading and posting in May.

May Wrap Up

I only managed to finish ONE book during may – this was because for the majority of May I was finishing university with exams and assessments taking up my time.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I’ll be posting a full review for Gone Girl, but a short summary: it was a super quick and interesting read that kept me interested throughout and I’ll be looking at other Flynn books in the future.

However, in May I’ve also been reading my way through SIX other books.

In terms of blog posting, in May I’ve been posting about…
