I know I’m several days late here! I wanted to get all my review posts done for the books I read in July. Still getting the hang of this feature 🙂
I read five books in July:
- Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
- The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver
- The Dog Stars (audio) by Peter Heller, read by Mark Deakins
- Driven by Donald Driver
- Our Divided Political Heart (audio) by E.J. Dionne, read by Michael Kramer
I enjoyed all these books! Three fiction and two non-fiction. I had a really fun mini-readalong of Something Wicked with my friend Anthony (click link above for recap), and The Bean Trees and Driven were nice and easy for a very busy month, thanks to my extensive Fringe Fest coverage. The Dog Stars was a great dystopian book, good on audio for a long drive, but Our Divided Political Heart, while compelling, took me forever to get through. I was pleased to get one more done for my TBR Pile Challenge as well (Bean Trees).
Writing this down, only five books? Really? It felt like a lot more, but that’s probably thanks to starting Helter Skelter on July 18. I didn’t finish it until the first weekend of August, though, so I’m counting it for that month, especially since I really ended up reading the bulk of it those first few days of August.
How was your reading in July? What were the best/worst you read that month?
