July Review

July 31, 2013

My goodness, I can't believe July is already coming to an end! This month has flown by.
It's time to wrap up the month and see what all has been read. It was a good month for reading again! I was able to knock out 14 books! With all that work, I have pushed myself so close to my goal. I'm now 9 books away, so I've been thinking of upping my goal to 75, from 55.

The ones that I have really liked/loved this month, in no particular order:

 Then, the ones I just found just so-so. Not bad and not great, in no particular order:

How has your month been? What were your hits and misses?


  1. Likin' all the Lisa T. Bergren love. :) She's one talented lady.

    I just read my first Laura Frantz novel and while I liked it okay, it certainly won't be likely to end up a favorite. Makes me sad because she is a talented author... I just didn't wind up adoring the novel.

  2. Yes! Lisa T. Bergren is very talented. She writes wonderful books. I can't wait to read more by her.

    Which one did you read? Love's Awakening was the first book I read, and I liked that one. The Frontiersman's Daughter was ok. Her writing is beautiful though.

  3. I got The Fairest Beauty from the library a while back and tried to start it. I just couldn't get interested enough to continue on. Felt bad, but somedays that's just the way the cookie crumbles. Maybe another time! :)

    Splitting Harriet is simply awesome. I know I've said that before, but it's the truth so it bears repeating! ;P

  4. Kara, I know what you mean. I really liked the first two book, but Fairest Beauty was just ok.

    Splitting Harriet was really good! I don't usually read contemporary, but that was good!


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a word, leave a line, I would love to hear what you have to say.
