June is "Favorite Gentlemen" Month.

Reading has been slow going lately. I just cannot seem to get into any book and I have started falling seriously behind in my reading goal for the year. And I just don't see that changing much in June since I will be going back to work in the next week or so and participating in Camp NaNoWriMo starting Friday. Busy is what I will be.
So I started thinking what I could do to get myself back in the reading game so that I don't fall even farther behind in my goal. That's when it hit me. Why not revisit some of my favorite literary gentlemen to rekindle my love for the written word? I always say that I am going to re-read certain books, but never do. So in June, instead of trying to force myself to read a new book I'm going to go back to some that I already know I love. My favorite books span over many genres so I narrowed it down to "favorite guy" books....that and I need some romance in my life.

My June reading list consists of:

So there's my list with just some of my favorite literary guys. I'll also throw a couple review books in there, but this list is what I will be focusing on.
Hopefully one of these books will get me back on the reading horse. And instead of doing a review for each of them, since I have reviewed most of them already, I'll write up a post about why the book's leading man is one of my favorites.

Is there any certain book(s) that you go back to when you need to rekindle the passion between you and reading? Or do you just push forward until you find a new book that does it for you?


  1. Oh I love re-reading books too! There's something soothing to already knowing what will happen but enjoying the journey anyway.
    When I need to rekindle my book passion there's a genre I read, really light romantic/comedy contemporary.

    Clean Teen Fiction
    Clean Adult Fiction

    1. I completely agree with you. I will never understand why people don't like re-reading books. It is very soothing.

  2. I've been in a reading slump as well. AND I'm going to be participating in Camp NaNoWriMo, thrilled to see another blogger joining in the writing fun. Happy writing! And I hope you break out of your slump!

    I find it helps me to reread favorite books, sometimes you just need that little reminder of why you fell in love with reading in the first place. :]

  3. Yay for Camp NaNoWriMo!!
    Hope it's going well for you! And hopefully we'll both break out of our reading slumps soon.


I love comments, so you should leave me one...or two :D
