July Reading Roundup

I love vacation time!  I had the whole month off from work, and was able to read 17 books during the month of July.  There were so many wonderful books.  Some of my favorites were: A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J. Maas,  Dreams of Gods and Monsters, my Laini Taylor, and The Queen of the Tearling, by Erika Johansen.  I also had a chance to read ( and listen) to some inspiring memoirs by Kristen Chenoweth, Mindy Kaling, and Rachel Dratch. Also, I found some fun books such as Forsworn, by Emily Wibberley  (an ARC I was lucky enough to review), Amy & Roger's Epic Detour, by Morgan Matson, and The Selection, by Kiera Cass.  Finally, I rounded out the month with some classics such as To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, and The Age of Innocence, by Edith Wharton.  
I doubt I will be fortunate enough to read this many books in August.  But reading all those books in July is my idea of a great stay-cation.

Here are all the titles, in no particular order:

  1. I think the only book I read out of your list is ACOTAR and i loved it. i want to read laini taylor's books but i haven't found the time. it does look really good, though! gates of thread and stone has such a pretty cover! and i'd really love to read amy and roger's epic detour

  2. The Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, by Laini Taylor, has it all,: fantasy, romance, humor...It is EPIC. I didn't want it to end.
