I somehow read more and less than I thought I would in July 🤷🏻‍♀️. I didn‘t get to my #doublespin and the #foodandlit buddy read, but still managed to read 9 books (higher than average for me). Amazingly, no DNF books either!

My latest #librarystack! 😍 Prepping for my August reads and finishing up Winter in the Blood this weekend

The #diversecozy buddy read for August is The Devotion of Suspect X, chosen to correspond with #foodandlit‘s August country, Japan 🇯🇵. I‘ve seen some great reviews for this one, so 🤞

Let me know if you‘d like to join in for this casual, read at your own pace buddy read! @ozma.of.oz @Mollyanna @mhillis

Cathythoughts Very nice! I‘m getting ready for Custom of the Country too. ❤️ 2w
mhillis Great choice! I haven‘t read book three in the series, so I‘ll go with it 2w
Mollyanna Just downloaded the #diversecozy book! Looking forward to it. Still haven‘t had a chance to get to the others, but they are definitely coming up soon on my TBR. 2w

sarahbellum @Cathythoughts the only Wharton I‘ve read is Ethan Frome, which I really disliked. I had to read it for high school though, so I‘m hoping Custom of the Country will redeem Wharton for me! 2w
sarahbellum @Mollyanna @ozma.of.oz Awesome, looking forward to hearing your thoughts! @mhillis Yay, hoping the series holds up for you! 🤞 2w

The Tour de France. Racing! Tension! Crashes! Murder? Someone is willing to kill to influence the race, and cyclist Marc gets recruited by the police to help flush out the murderer.

An interesting read! Lots of info about cycling and the Tour. And fast paced, the drama kept up during the whole story. But the characters all felt a little flat, to where I kind of didn‘t care who won? And I felt really unsatisfied with the ending. 🌕🌕🌗🌑🌑

ozma.of.oz Featuring my new sticker! #DiverseCozy 2w
sarahbellum Thanks for reading along! I also was not thrilled with the ending 2w
mcctrish Oh I should buy this for my husband for his birthday 2w

Forgot to snap a pic before I returned the book to the library, so here‘s a glamor shot of Gus instead 🐶

I have to give the author props for keeping me consistently interested in competitive cycling (something I knew next to nothing about) throughout the mystery. I did guess the saboteur fairly early on, I wasn‘t wowed by the ending, and this definitely would not pass the Bechdel test, but I somehow still wound up liking it overall!
