July Confessions

Wow, so I think this may be an all-time low for me regarding the number of books I read this month. I normally read A LOT during the summer, but I think I was out and about too much at the beach and chasing after my two year old to take the time to read and relax. Hopefully I will get to read more of the beach reads on my list next month. *fingers crossed*

Books Read:
1.  The Last Summer of the Garrett Girls by Jessica Spotswood  (YA Realistic Fiction) - 3.5 out of 5 stars
2.  The Summer Wives by Beatriz Williams (Adult Historical Fiction) - 4 out of 5 stars
3.  Save the Date by Morgan Matson (YA Realistic Fiction) - 4 out of 5 stars
4.  Sailing Lessons by Hannah McKinnon (Adult Fiction) - 3.5 out of 5 stars - Review to come!

1.  Favorite Book:  I loved Save the Date by Morgan Matson. I brought it with me on vacation to the beach and it was the perfect book to relax with!

2.  Biggest Disappointment: I wasn't overly disappointed by Sailing Lessons, but I didn't love it as much as The Summer House, which I read last year and absolutely adored. 

3.  Biggest Surprise: Save the Date was not only my favorite book of the month, but also my biggest surprise. I enjoyed it wayyyy more than I thought I would. I normally like Matson's novels, but one about a wedding left me hesitant.  But I loved it! 

4.  Favorite PostMy Favorite Books of 2018 (so far!)

5.  Favorite Part of July: My family vacation at the beach. Even though I barely sat down since I spent most of my time chasing my really rambunctious two year old, we still had a nice time. It was worth it to see my kid jumping the waves in the ocean and enjoying everything the beach has to offer. 

Things I Am Loving:
 Banished (I love shows on the BBC!)
All things Disney (we are going next month!)
Tie-Front One Piece Swimsuit from JCrew Factory

Guys, how is it already August? I start panicking this time every year because I just want summer to stay longer. Thankfully, my son doesn't go back to school until after Labor Day. What books did you guys read this month? Which one was your favorite? Let me know!


  1. I’m panicking, too, because I haven’t accomplished anything yet this summer. I’ve just been doing regular, boring stuff. I hope you’re able to read more this month. Happy August!

  2. Ahh, a beach vacation sounds so nice! Glad you had some good reads in July! I'm hoping to get to The Summer Wives soon.

    1. Thanks, Angela! I hope you get to read it soon. I look forward to your thoughts!
