Guess what I didn’t see coming? JULY. Holy cow, it’s the middle of the year already! Didn’t I just start this blog? Wasn’t it just Christmas? Man, oh man I can’t believe it’s July. Seriously: I can’t get over it. Why is time moving so fast? Why can’t I just get it to put the brakes on?? I’m freaking out!
In other hyperventilating inducing news, I’m so disgustingly far behind on my book reviews that I haven’t reviewed anything I read in June. Isn’t that just the gosh darn most pathetic thing you’ve ever heard? Correct answer: no, but close.

I cheated a little and counted Extras as my last fantasy novel, even though it’s more SciFi. Is this totally breaking the rules? July was okay, but the biggest surprise was that I loved Extras more than I loved the rest of the series. I thought it was the best!! Maybe Uglies was just as good, but Extras was awesome! Am I the only one with this crazy opinion?
