June ’17 Reading Wrap-up

I read less overall this month than in May, but I’m pleased that I managed to get a bit of nonfic read. It’s a Christmas miracle in June! The nonfic I enjoyed the most, to no one’s surprise, was the series of Great Course lectures on Alexander the Great by Kenneth Harl. WAIT NONFICTION AND AN AUDIOBOOK?

I’m really happy that I was finally able to finish Pandora Hearts (a manga) because it’s been years in unfolding and wait no I am not happy that I finished it because it was completely soul-crushing. Oh, well.
