July was a good reading month. I didn’t read as many books as last month but they were all enjoyable books that I would definitely recommend.Want to see what I finished reading this month? Take a look:
Hotel Du Lac by Anita Brookner
The Sonnet Lover by Carol Goodman (my review)
Murder in Chinatown by Victoria Thompson (my review)
A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny (my review)
Playing with the Moon by Eliza Graham (my review)
The Virgin of Small Plains by Nancy Pickard
I wanted to write something about The Virgin of Small Plains and Hotel Du Lac but I just didn’t get around to it. Sad especially as Hotel Du Lac was fantastic. And, I think it’s actually my biggest reading accomplishment so far this year as I finally read an Anita Brookner book. For some reason I’ve collected a couple of her books and have been meaning to read them for years but well you know how that goes.
With regards to my challenge reads, well, I’m so behind it’s not even funny. I still have books in progress for the Southern Reading Challenge, the Mystery Reading challenge and Don Quixote. However, I have not even started the Armchair Traveler challenge. That is not good. Oh well, let’s see what August brings.
