I absolutely adore reading - my love for books has had a huge impact on my life! I'm going to grad school to be a children's/YA librarian.

July Round Up

Where Angels Fear to Tread - E.M. Forster Blood and Chocolate - Annette Curtis Klause Outlander - Diana Gabaldon Arsenic and Old Lace - Acting Edition - Joseph Kesselring The Cornell Woolrich Omnibus: Rear Window and Other Stories / I Married a Dead Man / Waltz into Darkness - Cornell Woolrich The Philadelphia Story - Philip Barry Chocolat - Joanne Harris The Art of War - Thomas Cleary, Sun Tzu Warm Bodies - Isaac Marion To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee

This post is a bit late because I went to the beach with my family last week, but July was been an exceptionally good reading month for me! I think it's partially because the wedding's over and I'm not currently working, so I've really been able to sit down and read a lot, but also I've just gotten lucky with my reading choices - so many of the books I read this month have been amazing! 


I read 11 books this month (not shown is The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which I re-read with my book club). Well, 2 were plays and 1 was a short story, but anyway - 10 pieces of literature. I didn't finish one of the books on my list, Anna Karenina, but I'm re-reading that in preparation for my book club's read of that (they're actually currently reading it, but it's on our longer reads list so I'm reading it a bit ahead of them as I prep their reading guide questionnaires), so I wasn't too upset about not finishing that. I also missed reading The Maze Runner, which disappointed me, but I've requested it from my library so I'll read it eventually. I did read Blood and Chocolate and To Kill a Mockingbird, which were not on my list, so that's a good thing! 


Favorite Book in July: 
It is SO hard for me to pick an absolute favorite this month, because I read SO many great books! Out of the books that I haven't read before, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is definitely my favorite, but To Kill a Mockingbird is also fantastic. 


Least Favorite Book in July:

Again, these books are all so good that it's hard for me to really say which was my least favorite... but I'm going to go with Where Angels Fear to Tread, because I'd actually completely forgotten about it until I went back through my records to write this post. Whoops, haha. If it's forgettable, then it's definitely not as good as the others! 


Have you read any of the books that I read last month? What were your favorite books for July?
