The Sunday Salon: July Books Recap [8.7.11]

The Sunday

I didn’t post my monthly update last Sunday because I thought, “Hey, it’s only July 31, I could still finish another book today.” Then on Monday, when I very predictably had not finished another book, I remembered that I don’t really read much these days and that was very silly logic on my part.

So what did I read in July? I finished seven books: 5 print and 2 audio.

July Books

  1. Flawless by Sara Shephard (Pretty Little Liars #2)
  2. The Heroine’s Bookshelf by Erin Blakemore
  3. 13, rue Therese by Elena Mauli Shapiro
  4. Feed by Mira Grant (audio)
  5. Blood Work by Holly Tucker
  6. The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson
  7. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (audio)(reread)

My favorite book this month was Feed. My least favorite was probably my Mockingjay reread.

Psst…at this time next week, I will have a husband again. I am so excited, I can barely concentrate on anything else. I think I might be getting too old for this whole living apart thing. I used to handle it fine (we lived apart for an ENTIRE year four years ago), but I really miss him this time (well I always miss him but this time is different). Perhaps I’m in need of a little more stability these days. But it doesn’t matter now because I will see him in FIVE DAYS. *jumps with joy*

What are you up to this Sunday?

    I’m sure that has everything to do with the mood you have been in and not reading much. I get very lonely when my husband travels (even with my loud children in the house). I’ve not been reading much either, because of all the catching up I’m having to do after being gone all summer. (I really did not like Mockingjay. No way I would re-read)

    Yay to getting your husband back. You’ve really got to find a solution to the apart issue. You read some good books this month, let’s hope August is just as successful

    I also did not like Mockingjay. I am glad that your husband is coming home, and I can imagine that you are pretty darn excited about that! I have never lived apart from my husband, but I can imagine that it would be stressful and hard for me. Five days is going to go by so fast, and then you will have him there with you again. Very excited for you!

    I KNEW I should have bought Feed when I was at Borders this week, but I picked something else instead. Tsk tsk.

    Yay for your husband coming home soon! It would be tough to be apart for so long – I can’t imagine living apart for an entire year!

    I keep hearing great things about Feed – I may have to check it out at some point.
