Happy Tuesday! July was a fantastic reading month for me! I finally got out of my reading funk. I had been so terribly picky lately, but I’m finally out of that. I don’t know that I’m ready for anything high angst, but that’s always something I have to be careful of. It can leave me feeling just UGH!
For August I’ve decided to not do a TBR, but for now let’s see how I did with July.
Here are the books from my July TBR that I read ~
Unravel the Dusk ~ 3.5 Stars
The Empire of Gold ~ 5 Stars ~ Review
Obsidio ~ 4.5 Stars
The Little Paris Bookshop ~ 4 Stars (New-to-Me Author Challenge)
Good Omens ~ 4 Stars (New-to-Me Author Challenge)
The Hiding Place ~ 5 Stars (New-to-Me Author Challenge
The Printed Letter Bookshop ~ 4 Stars (New-to-Me Author Challenge)
The Little Bookshop on the Seine ~ 4 Stars (New-to-Me Author Challenge)
So, I got through 8 of the 16 book on my July TBR. Not bad.
Here’s what I read for #JaneAustenJuly
Emma ~ 5 Stars
Pride and Prejudice ~ 5 Stars
Pride ~ 4 Stars (New-to-Me Author Challenge)
The Jane Austen Society ~ 4 Stars (New-to-Me Author Challenge)
Lady Susan ~ 4 Stars
And here’s what I watched for #JaneAustenJuly
I can honestly say that participating in Jane Austen July is what pulled me out of my funk. I think in particular it was reading Emma and Pride and Prejudice back to back. I’ll definitely try to remember that the next time I’m in a funk. I swear those two books just get better and better every time I read them. And if you’re interested, I’d give the new Emma 4 stars. Pride and Prejudice gets 10 stars…well, you see, that’s just my all-time favorite movie.
Now, here’s a list of other books I read this month ~
King of Lies ~ 4 Stars
A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder ~ 5 Stars (New-to-Me Author Challenge)
The Beast ~ 4.5 Stars
I read a total of 19 books in July. 8 of them worked towards my New-to-Me Author Challenge. I’ll do a final update for that challenge with my bingo board at the end of August. And Jane Austen July was undoubtedly a complete success for me – in more ways than one! And could you tell I had a bit of a bookshop obsession this month?? I’m determined to one day have my own bookshop. #DreamBig
~ Favorite of the Month ~
But, A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder was a close runner up! Y’all, I had 5 5-Star reads in July! That’s just fantastic. My lowest rating was a 3.5, and I only had one of those.
What was your favorite read in July??
