July Reading Wrap Up

Looking back through the annals of my book journals, the notebooks where I list all the books I read by month, July is historically  the busiest reading month in my year.  While I’m not sure why that is, I suspect it has to do with being settled into the rhythm of summer days, rising earlier to enjoy the morning sunlight, staying up late to sit on the back porch and watch the fireflies come out, even taking the occasional afternoon to lie in the shade, drinking iced tea from a gently sweating glass, reading to my heart’s content.

Here’s the wrap up for July:

Socrates in Love, by Katayami, for the Japanese Literature Challenge

Sea Escape, by Lynne Griffin, for TLC Tours

The Imperfectionists, byTom Rachman

Let the Great World Spin,, by Colum McCann

Tapestry of Love, by Rosy Thornton

Commuters, by Emily Gray Tedrowe, for TLC Tours

Unfinished Desires, by Gail Godwin

I’m eagerly anticipating the August bookstack, which includes Labor Day, by Joyce Maynard (watch for my TLC Book Tour reivew on August 11); Where the God of Love Hangs Out, by Amy Bloom; The Nobodies Album, by Carolyn Parkhurst; and All She Was Worth, by Miyuki Miyabe (for the Japanese Literature Challenge).

Happy Reading…
