Books Received:
I realized too late that last week I focused only on the kindle books I purchased and not  the print books, so that is included in this week's post as well.

What am I reading:
I have finished Glitch,and if you have been following along you know that I didn't like it. I did finish it though I wanted to give up on it. I have also made the decision to continue on with the series, Override and then Shutdown. I am going to keep an open mind on the last two books, but I will also be honest. I am hoping that the series picks up. I am also hoping to read World War Z by Max Brooks, and White Horse by Alex Adams this month. 

What I will be reading:
Well, I have a lot of books that I want to get through, some review and some for challenges. I also will not make the mistake of depriving myself of books that I just want to read.  So, stealing  borrowing an idea from a video blog I follow, The Readables, I am going to choose a theme and four to five books that fall within that theme. If I am able to throw in some other ones I will, but the goal would be to make it through the four books. I decided I wanted to focus on some anthologies for the month of July. I have tons to choose from, but I'm still narrowing the list down. 

What I wish I was reading right now:
Along with the themed books, I will be concentrating on clearing my Goodreads to-read shelf. I am making progress with On Photography by Susan Sontag. Not sure if I will continue to read it as I had been (more like a background book) or focus on it a little more to get through it quicker. I am enjoying it and it's definitely making me want to take my camera out more. But with school, and maintaining and developing this blog-well I need more time than what I've got.
