#JubilantJuly #JulyMostAnticipated #Whodunitbymail
Joined Whodunit mystery book mail club - committed to one book per month. I confess I am nervous, intimidated about the time commitment but am excited &intrigued & want to join in the fun! Have been in any bookclub in years. 📚🎉💚
Depicted is my first book to read & its accompanying journal for notes. Thanks @Anovelobsession !

ReadingEnvy And I'm excited for when the Ambler hits my house because I've always meant to try him 5y
My_novel_obsession Glad everything got there. I'm excited to get this thing started!! 🤗 5y

Mdargusch I'm feeling the same way. I'm excited to get a new mystery every month but nervous I won't get them all read. 5y

This is definitely my #Julymostanticipated (actually most anticipated for a while now!) and I finally started on it! A thriller set in a near-future South Africa, written by a South African! It really makes me so happy!!! The language, the places, the references...everything is so spot-on and relatable!
Thank you @JTLawrence

OutsmartYourShelf I read it recently. It's very good. 5y

This is a fraction of my #tbr for July (I know I'm late posting for #sizzlinsummerreads and #jubilantjuly, but better late than never, right?). These are some of my #JulyMostAnticipated, and I'm participating in Litsy buddy reads for the first time! We'll see how I do! #TheSatanicVersesBuddyRead #JulyisStrange

elkeOriginal Is this your first time with Jonathan Strange? 5y
LeahBergen I'm glad you're reading Rushdie with us! 5y
aeeklund @elkeo All the way through, yes. I've read bits and pieces of it, apparently, and I've seen the miniseries. (I know, I know...) 5y

aeeklund @LeahBergen Me, too!! It's been a long time since I read it. I can't wait to discuss it! 5y
elkeOriginal It's nice to see I am ahead of you in life on at least 1 book 😉 5y
elkeOriginal And Nevernight is on my short stack for July! #buddyread 5y
aeeklund @elkeo YESSSSSS Nevernight #buddyread!! (And you're ahead of me on plenty of books!) 5y

You guys know my reading habits are insane, so here's my flexible #tbr clockwise from the top left: reading more in my currently reading list of 28 books; 1 book left to finish for #LitsyAtoZ ; continuing my Mansfield Park reread with my mom; 3 reserved books from the library; and the tons of books I have from #netgalley and haven't finished! The tagged book is my #julymostanticipated #sizzlinsummerbooks #jubilantjuly

Chrys I'm just glad that there is someone else with a ton of current reads at any given time 😊 5y
readinginthedark @Chrys It keeps me from getting bored or restless! 5y

The Orenda: A novel | Joseph Boyden

Soooo, I might just be a sucker for punishment. I seem to read about 5 books a month. And yet, here's the #tbr I've set for July. Crazy, right? In my defence, there's too many great challenges on Litsy to pass up, #TheSatanicVersesBuddyRead & #agathachristieclub. & 2 of these I couldn't get to in June. & one is for #postalbookclub! With all this reading that's supposedly going to get done, why not throw in 2 photo challenges? #day1

PurpleyPumpkin Oh, and I'm also doing a #buddyread of the tagged book with @Leniverse. It's going to be quite a month! 5y
Purrfectpages Loved The Hating Game! 5y

PurpleyPumpkin @Purrfectpages I keep putting this one on my tbr but never seem to get to it! I will read it this month for sure. 👊🏽 5y
Leniverse You can do it! We're more than halfway through the Orenda already. Agatha Christie books are quick reads. The others look like page turners too. This will be the month you breeze past your 5 book mark. 👍🙌 5y
PurpleyPumpkin @Leniverse Thanks for the props, I need it! Ha, and I didn't realize we're halfway through The Orenda... maybe this is doable!🙌🏽 5y
RealLifeReading You can do it!! 5y
PurpleyPumpkin @RealLifeReading Thanks for the support. I'll try!🤞🏽 5y
LeahBergen You've got this!! 👏🏻👏🏻 5y
PurpleyPumpkin Thanks! I will do my best!😉 5y
