I definitely felt like I was in an overall funk in July but that might have translated into getting a bunch of books read - which I'll take as a win for the month.
Here's what I read this past month:
Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid: Enjoyed. Easy, quick summer read. If you've enjoyed other books from her you'll probably like this one too.
The Ones We're Meant To Find by Joan He: I am fascinated by people who are able to imagine/create/conceive other worlds and I kept coming back to that over and over with this story. At some points in the book I felt totally lost but I wasn’t deterred and basically became obsessed with finishing it. Probably not a story for everyone but I definitely find myself taken with dystopian narratives and the human choices along the way.
56 Days by Catherine Ryan Howard: This one was a like not a love.
Nothing To See Here by Kevin Wilson: Loved it. I’ve had this in my pile for a long time and I’m so glad I finally read it. Completely unique story full of heart.
The Push by Ashley Audrain: Whoa. Super heavy subject matter about mothers + children + partners but also amazingly good, richly detailed writing. I had a super hard time putting it down.
