I spent the spring wishing for summer to arrive and now I have no idea where it went. July was a complete whirlwind.
July was the month from travel. I spent a week on the beach, a couple of days in D.C. and then a week in Germany for a wedding. Lots of travel means lots of time for reading all of the books. This month’s books were an eclectic group. Two of the books had been sitting on the my shelf for a few months. Two were books I picked up on vacation at Elements. One was an impulse buy in response to a celebrity death. All of them receive the Literary Lady with Libations stamp of “You Should Read This.”
The books I completed in July:
Life after Life by Kate Atkinson
The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
Red Clocks – Lena Zumas
White Houses by Amy Bloom
I’m assuming I’ll have a bigger list for August. I’m currently vacillating between four books. Four very different books. I’m teetering on finishing all of them.
What did everyone else read in July? What was your favorite read?
