July was a really successful reading month for me. Not only did I have a good flow going, so could easily immerse myself in the next book once one was finished, but the books also had a great variety to them – completely by accident! When I look back on this month’s list, although all fiction, I can honestly say I enjoyed (most!) of them:
- The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware – review here
- The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter – review here
- Track 9 by Sue Rovens – review here
- The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie – review here
- My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout – review here
- Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler – review here
- Waiting for Monsieur Bellivier by Britta Rostlund – review here
- The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness – review here
My name is Lucy Barton was a one-day read as I just couldn’t put it down, so that claims the title of my favourite book of July, but a classic Agatha Christie comes close! Both must-reads if you haven’t already.
I’ve been sent a few books this month and Track 9 was the first of these that I read. Being sent a book you wouldn’t necessarily pick up yourself is a great way to break your habits and I liked reading something a little different. Overall, I wasn’t that impressed with Vinegar Girl, but aside from that, I would recommend all of the other books.
August is a blank slate at the moment, I’ve just started We Were Liars by E. Lockhart on audiobook (which I am enjoying so far) but have no other solid reads lined up. Time to take a look through my TBR stack…
