The Books of June

Why yes, I have been hiking a lot, so not that many books this month.

Best books of the month? I’d say Stiletto by Daniel O’Malley is the sequel to The Rook and just as good. The other was Passionate Minds: Emilie du Chatelet, Voltaire, and the Great Love Affair of the Enlightenment by David Bodanis which I really enjoyed.

Graphic Novel

Mockingbird Vol. 2: My Feminist Agenda (2017) Chelsea Cain and Kate Niemczyk
Rivers of London: Detective Stories #4.1 (2017) Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel, Lee Sullivan, Luis Guerrero, Mack Chater
Princeless Vol. 4: Be Yourself (2015) Jeremy Whitley, Emily Martin and Brett Grunig

Stiletto (2016) Daniel O’Malley
