July is now just about behind us, and tomorrow we shall welcome in August. Not my favourite month, I admit, but it does bring us one step closer to Fall, so I suppose I shall survive. ;)
July has been hot. Very, very hot. And of course, busy, as per usual of summer. Every year, our town has a sort of ‘summer celebration’ in July, which is a few days long with various activities. We usually only attend the Parade and Book Sale (because…books! And free candy at the parade. ;)), but this year and the year before we also attended the Kiddie Parade because my darling nephews were in it, so we walked with them and enjoyed their adorableness. :D
Other June happenings included more kittens being born, more storms, and just getting things done. I have read a fair amount, though I still feel a tad bit behind on my reading list. It’ll come though!
So, in July, I read the following books:
Quite a few good ones there! I reviewed several of them (and just realized that while I posted my review of “Suit and Suitability” on goodreads and amazon, I’m not sure I ever posted it to my blog….I’ll have to check on that one, and amend if need be!).
My review for “A Name Unknown” by Roseanna M. White will be posted on the Third of August – it is an excellent book, one I encourage you not to miss!
The books I have added to my shelves:
- “Love, Lace, and Minor Alterations” – Giveaway Win
- “The Genesis Tree” – Gift from the author for being on her team and reviewing an ecopy
- “Paige Torn” – Tyndale Rewards
- “Freedom’s Ring” – Tyndale Review Copy
- “A Name Unknown” – Review Copy
- “The Lost Loves of World War II Collection” – garage sale find!
And then I found a few others of those Barbour Collections like the last one, at our library booksale. I love the scalloped pages of those books!
So, readers, what have you been up to lately? Reading anything good? Spending lots of time outside? Do you like this hot weather?
