July Confessions

My flowers 
July was such a relaxing month. I got a lot of reading done, especially when I was on vacation at the Outer Banks. August is going to be here soon and that means in a few weeks I will be getting my classroom ready for a new group of students! Where has the summer gone? I want to tell it to slow down!  One thing is for sure, I'm so thankful to have had this much time off though.

Books Read in July:
1.  Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris
2.  Die For Me by Amy Plum
3.  Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer
4.  Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
5.  The Little Women Letters by Gabrielle Donnelly
6.  The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen
7.  Love Story by Jennifer Echols
8.  The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
9.  Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares
10.  Summer and the City by Candace Bushnell
11.  The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson (review and giveaway to come!)
12.  I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend by Cora Harrison (review to come!)

My July Top Five

1.  Favorite Book:  It's hard to pick just one since I've read some great books this month.  I would have to say it's a tie between Die For Me by Amy Plum and Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer.

2.  Biggest Surprise:  I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend by Cora Harrison- This was an absolutely adorable historical fiction. I'll be posting my review this coming week.

3.  Biggest Letdown:  Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares really disappointed me.

4.  Favorite Post:  Outer Banks pictures

5.  Favorite Part of July: My week at the Outer Banks.


  1. Jane's Best Friend? Bring it. I'm looking forward to that review.

  2. So glad you enjoyed Die for Me too, I was a little surprised when I posted my review the number of people that said they couldn't even finish it. To each his own though, but I loved it:)

  3. Your flowers are beautiful! So glad you loved Die for Me - I can't wait for the next book already! :)

  4. So glad you've read and enjoyed I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend. Looking forward to your review.

    It's funny that you say the summer is on the way out. For me it is really just beginning. I've only been back from Boston for two days. Had the best time.

  5. Oooh really excited for the I was Jane's Best Friend review. I'll be looking forward to it. Thanks for the heads up :)


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
