   It seems like this month has lasted forever...probably due to the fact that I've been sick for about 3 weeks now, a terrible cold...also due to the fact that I worked 3rds for the week of Thanksgiving. All while being sick...It's been a mediocre reading month...a few good ones and the rest...kind of meh.  False Hearts was definitely my fav of the month.

A mediocre reading month...some good...some not so good, some good but long (everything under the sun).  I listened to more books than I physically read this month by far, including a re-listen/read for an old favorite.  I did not read a single arc...I think that's due to me feeling like I don't want to be a guinea pig for new books.  Essentially, that's what you are, after all, which is the price you pay for being able to read books before they come out.  I'm just not sure if I want to do it anymore.

July Reading Recap
The Windflower - Laura London
Fanning the Flames - Victoria Dahl
The Suffragette Scandal (The Brothers Sinister) (Volume 4) - Courtney Milan
When Lightning Strikes - Meg Cabot
The Book of Life - Deborah Harkness
The Perfect Match - Kristan Higgins
Then Came You - Jill Shalvis
Rusty Nailed - Alice Clayton
Mr. Impossible - Loretta Chase
Truly - Ruthie Knox

I did a ton of reading this month: 16 books, including two uber-long ones (The Windflower and The Book of Life), thanks to a vacation week and several (alright, too many) very late nights. I usually average ~10 books per month. No 5 star reads, but The Windflower and Fanning the Flames were solid 4.5s, and most of the others I found really entertaining and enjoyable, even where I had some quibbles (The Suffragette Scandal, The Book of Life, Meg Cabot's Missing series). Only two stinkers: Rusty Nailed was a chore to finish, and Mr. Impossible I DNF'd a third of the way through.

 

I haven't finished Ruthie Knox's Truly ARC, which is being published next Tuesday, August 5, but I am in heaven so far.

 

I can't believe it's almost August! This summer is flying by too fast.
