Can you believe that it’s July? I certainly can’t; months seem to be flying by these days!
I’ve done pretty well with my reading this month. I managed 18 books, so I’ve read a little more than half a book every day. I think that’s pretty good; I have no idea how I’m managing it, but I’m pleased with this rate and I hope I can manage it. I think I’d have managed to read even more if I hadn’t spent most of the last three days of the month working!
I won’t be doing a genre breakdown today; I don’t have my spreadsheet with me so it isn’t as easy as normal. I’ll just list them instead.
- Eden Springs, Laura Kasischke
- Day for Night, Frederick Reiken
- Wild Romance, Chloe Schama
- Flirting with Forever, Gwyn Cready
- The Mistress of Nothing, Kate Pullinger
- The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, Bill Bryson
- Shiver, Maggie Stiefvater
- Magic Bleeds, Ilona Andrews
- Girl in Translation, Jean Kwok
- The Confessions of Catherine de Medici, C.W. Gortner
- Ten Things I Love About You, Julia Quinn
- The Blue Orchard, Jackson Taylor
- The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott, Kelly O’Connor McNees
- Dragon Haven, Robin Hobb
- Katherine, Anchee Min
- The Radleys, Matt Haig
- Don’t Tempt Me, Loretta Chase
- The Russian Dreambook of Color and Flight, Gina Ochsner
I actually had a few disappointments this month, so my favorites are very easy to choose! I’ll have to go with The Mistress of Nothing by Kate Pullinger and The Confessions of Catherine de Medici by C.W. Gortner for making historical fiction interesting again. I definitely recommend both of those.
I’m not sure what I’ll be reading in July. I have two weeks off to visit my parents, so I’m sure I’ll get some read, but I’m going to leave my choices up to the whim of the moment!
Do you have any summer reading plans?
