July Confessions

Oh my gosh! It's already the end of July?!? It's crazy how quickly the summer goes compared to the winter months. This month I had a good reading month (at least for me!), due to the audio books I supplemented with.  Also, I read some really great books this month and a lot of middle-of-the-road type of reads that left me feeling a bit meh.... Let me know what you think! 

Books Read in July:

1.  Golden Girl by Elin Hilderbrand (Adult Fiction) - 5 out of 5 stars 

2.  That Summer by Jennifer Weiner (Adult Fiction/Audio Book) - 3.5 out of 5 stars

3.  The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman (YA Fantasy) - 3.5 out of 5 stars  - Review to come!

4.  New Girl in Little Cove by Damhnait Monaghan (Adult Fiction/Audio Book) - 3.5 out of 5 stars 

5.  Haven Point by Virginia Hume (Adult Historical Fiction) - 3.5 out of 5 stars 

6.  The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave (Adult Fiction) - 4 out of 5 stars - Review to come!

7.  The Newcomer by Mary Kay Andrews (Adult Fiction) - 3 out of 5 stars 

8.  The Devil and the Heiress by Harper St. George (Adult Romance/Audio Book) - 3.5 out of 5 stars  - Review to come!

9.  A Summer to Remember by Erika Montgomery (Adult Historical Fiction) - 3.5 out of 5 stars - Review to come!


1. Favorite Book: Golden Girl was my absolute favorite book. For me, Hilderbrand keeps getting better and better. So good!
2.  Biggest Surprise: New Girl in Little Cove was so charming! It was such a cozy read and just what I needed! 

3.  Biggest Disappointment: I didn't love The Newcomer, which is odd, because normally Andrews writes such great beach reads that combine some element of a mystery. For me, this one fell extremely flat.
4.  Favorite Post: Blog Tour: Radar Girls

5.  Favorite Part of July:  I loved spending a weekend at the shore. It was a much needed break. We also celebrated my son's 9th birthday this month. It's been a busy, but fun month for my family filled with camps, pool time, and celebrations. I can't believe we are already approaching August!


So, what was your favorite book of the month that you read and did you have any disappointments? Let know in the comments below.



  1. I haven't read Elin Hilderbrand in awhile, but it looks like I might need to start again! Hooray for lots of fun family time!

    1. You should definitely read Hilderbrand's last two novels---so good! Thanks for visiting, Angela!

  2. I think you did fantastic! :-) Happy August!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
