In Review: July 2019


In Review posts are a chance for me to catch my breath, note that I am actually making progress towards my reading goals, and give each month’s blog posts a little extra love.

This month was a particularly exciting reading month. I liked or loved almost everything I read (with one major exception), and as a bonus, I finally got a library card at my new address. Also, a bunch of new people followed this blog. Hi, new people! I hope you’ll stick around!

Here’s hoping August is more of the same. Happy reading!
