#JulyWrapUp #JulyRecap
A little late in putting this together but it was a crazy week & month really. Still, with the #24by48 #readathon pushing me along with my library‘s summer reading program, I read or listened to 16 books in July. The tagged was my favorite. I had 3 non-fiction, 13 fiction, 2 audiobooks, 13 female authors & 3 males, & about 1/2 of East of Eden for the #EoE #buddyread. I‘d say it was an excellent reading month for me. 🎉📚🎉

Good Morning, Midnight | Lily Brooks-Dalton

I had a great month of mostly phenomenal reads. It wasn't hard to choose a favorite as Good Morning, Midnight blew my socks off but the runner ups behind that were numerous! #monthlyrecap #julyrecap #julyinbooks #julywrapup

Is it time already for the end of the month wrap up ? A fairly varied month - a spy thriller, non-fiction, debut authors and the beginning of my Booker season reading. All of these were books worth reading but I loved this Donal Ryan the most.
August will be almost completely taken up with the Booker longlist although I do need to squeeze a Read Harder book in there somehow...

ns510reads I know lol. I am sooo behind on Read Harder! 🙈 2y
Redheadrambles @ns510reads can you use any Longlister for any RH task ? 2y
ns510reads Probably not. I think the only thing that may potentially apply is a ‘romance novel by or about a POC‘ or ‘mystery by a POC or LGBTQ+ author‘....but i don‘t think either apply to any of the longlisted books. But we‘ll see! 😉 2y

ClairesReads Great round up- I‘m going to post mine later tonight! @ns510reads I‘m way behind on Read Harder too- with no time in sight given I haven‘t started the Booker longlist yet...I don‘t get the feeling any of them fit the RH tasks... 2y
Redheadrambles @ClairesReads poor Claire ! We miss you 😘 hopefully normal reading can resume soon. Yeah I looked the list over trying to fit something into RH but no I can‘t see an angle yet. 2y
ClairesReads @Redheadrambles miss you toooooooo!! 2y

I didn't manage to crack 3 of the ARCs on my #julytbr but what're you gonna do, right? Best reads of the month were Hunger & The Skeptical Vegan.
