July 2018 Reading Wrap Up
All the Devils are Here: The Hidden History of the Financial Crisis - Joe Nocera,Bethany McLean
At Your Request (Apart From the Crowd): An Apart From the Crowd Novella - Jen Turano
Gaijin: American Prisoner of War - Matt Faulkner
Mystic Park (A Finding Home Novel) - Regina Hart

The heatwave/drought is taking it's toll on me and my reading. It is really hard to concentrate on less than totally engrossing reads. I was also much more busy IRL than I thought I was going to be at the start of summer vacation and August looks more like the same. 

 

My participation in this summer's 24 in 48 was lacking, but I got a bunch of smaller stuff read and off/archived on my NOOK, so I am okay with participating very low-key. The trial run of a reverse Dewey was better. I finished off two books for July and started August reading, all in eight hours.

 

For COYER, I participated in the Christmas in July read-a-thon - I got 3 books done.

  

Read:

1. No One Would Listen: A Financial Thriller by Harry Markopolos - 2 stars

 

2. Lafayette in the Somewhat United States by Sarah Vowell - 3.5 stars

 

3. Lethal Warriors: When the New Band of Brothers Came Home/Uncovering the Tragic Reality of PTSD by David Philipps - 3 stars

 

4. All the Devils Are Here: The Hidden History of the Financial Crisis by Bethany McLean and Joe Nocera - 5 stars

 

5. All She Wants for Christmas: A Regency Christmas Novella by Amy Rose Bennett - 3 stars

7. Bespoke: A Tiny Christmas Tale (Espoir Archives #1) by Amanda Dykes - 2 stars

 

8. At Your Request (Apart From the Crowd #0.5) by Jen Turano - 4 stars

Friday Reads - June 8, 2018
Drifting to You: Cape Fear Shipworks - Kianna Alexander
A Radiant Soul: A Sweet Way to His Heart Novella - Kianna Alexander
The Valcourt Heiress - Catherine Coulter

Tomorrow is the kick-off of COYER Big Summer Birthday Bash. To start, I am reading two books off my COYER reading list, Drifting to You and A Radiant Soul by Kianna Alexander. These were historical romance novellas from two different indie published anthologies that are now sold separately, at least in the Kindle store. 

 

I already have two books done for Ripped Bodice Summer Bingo this week: Winds of Salem for "time travel" square and When Summer Comes for "heroine is older than the hero" square. Right now I am working on a third, the one for the "Pre-Renaissance" square (The Valcourt Heiress by Catherine Coulter, set in medieval England).

 

I gave up on that WWI book because I couldn't get through the first chapter. I am taking the summer off from the reading list and will get back to it in September.

 

Started the grad school application process this week. Hopefully by September I will be back in school along with my kids.
