July Wrap-Up

Prepare for the hysterical laughter I predicted when I posted my July TBR. Actually, I did pretty well. Let's recap what I said I was going to read:

American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin

The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe

Geek Mom by Kathi Ceceri

Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

Death and Judgment by Donna Leon

The Shelf: from LEQ to LES - by Phyllis Rose

Fables 2 by Bill Willingham

The Round House by Louise Erdrich


So here's what I actually read:

Fables 2 by Bill Willingham - Off to a good start! Another interesting graphic novel.

The Self: From LEQ to LES by Phillis Rose - Another one down! - I reviewed this already.

Sweet Tooth Vol. 1 by Jeff Lemire - Meh. Not a fan.

Death and Judgment by Donna Leon - Another one off the list. Woot! Also, I reviewed this one.

A Bride's Story Vol. 1 by Hiro Mashima - The first in a series of graphic novels about various brides in midieval Asia. I liked it pretty well.

Fables Vol. 3 by Bill Willingham - I still like this series.

The View from Penthouse B by Elinor Lipman - This was my personal book club book for July. It was light and entertaining and not very deep.

Geek Mom by Kathy Ceceri - This was my TBR jar pull. Another one from the list! It is a compilation of projects and fun stuff for mom's to do. My favorite: Hobbit Feast.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling - Off the list! Also, it took me forever! so yay me.

Notice and Note: Strategies for Close Reading by Kylene Beers and Robert B. Probst - This book taught me so much about how to pay attention to what I'm reading and analyze it.

Hot Six by Janet Evanovich - This was a reread for me, but to be honest, I didn't remember any of the plot. It's not the best of the series, but it was still highly entertaining.

The Library Book by Alan Bennett et. al. - This is a British book full of essays and stories extolling the virtues of the public library. Preaching to the choir, here, but I enjoyed it immensely.

Flirting With Pride and Prejudice ed. by Jennifer Crusie - This was a collection of essays about and stories based on Pride and Prejudice. There was only one that made my eyes glaze over. All the rest were highly entertaining.


I'm currently reading three more from my TBR list:

Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin

The Round House by Louise Erdrich


So how many is that off the list? Including the ones I'm reading right now, that's eight out of nine! Not too shabby, I think.

OO! And a total of 15 books. That's pretty impressive if I do say so myself.

What did you read this month?
