The Best and Worst of June

Well, it’s that time of month again.  The time for the recap of my 5 best and 5 worst posts of June.  The statistics are wildly different than they were when I did my May recap, as you’ll notice.  So here are the five best articles, not counting my homepage or site announcements.

1.  Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes

2.  The Giver by Lois Lowry

3.  The Hunger Games and Ancient Rome

4.  City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

5.  The White Queen by Philippa Gregory

It’s hard to believe The Giver is right up there because school’s been out in America for a month, which is where most of my traffic comes from.  But what’s really surprising is that The White Queen cracked the list while The Hunger Games and Ancient Rome article fell to third place.  Now, here are the surprising five worst articles of June:

1.  Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

2. YA Release Dates to Look Forward To

3.  Skinned by Robin Wasserman

4.  Graceling by Kristin Cashore

5.  Isabel: Jewel of Castilla by Carolyn Meyer

What’s surprising about the five worst articles and book reviews is that not one of them appeared on my May list, which means that the worst articles are at least rotating every month.  However, I’m surprised none of the Pauline Gedge books appear on the list because she’s not exactly a well-known author outside of historical fiction circles.  C’est la vie.
