July Book Review


Happy Tuesday Friends! I hope your week got off to a great start and you have exciting things planned for this week.  

For 2016, I have decided that it is important for me to take the time to read books... I know, I know, I say this every year, but this year I promise will be different! 

The goal is to each month, read a random assortment of books and share a few thoughts about the book (but not too much as I don't want to spoil the fun for anyone).  I love reading and I love sharing books with you guys.

Plus, this is a great opportunity for you all to share some of your awesome reads with me!

And you can keep track all year long by clicking 2016 Books at the top of my blog.  I will keep a running list of books right there for you.

Okay, time for the books I've read // currently reading in July!


The first book I read in July was The Last Star by Rick Yancey.  This is the third book in The 5th Wave Series and I honestly was sad to see it come to an end.  I will say that off the three books I enjoyed this one the most because of how many twists and turns the book took.  I honestly was on the edge of my seat for the last 20 or so chapters of the book and I am looking forward to checking out what other books Rick Yancey has written.  


The second book I read in July was What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty.  This book came highly recommended by my cousin Kellie (we've been trading books a lot lately!) and she nailed this one on the head.  I had heard of Liane Moriarty before with her book The Husbands Secret.  What Alice Forgot is not something that I would typically pick for myself because I tend to stick to Young Adult books, but I am glad that I took the time to read this one.  The book centers around Alice who has suffered a head injury and cannot remember the last ten years of her life - and a LOT has happened in those ten years.  I will say, the book starts a little slower than I prefer, so if you need a book that grabs you from the first page, I would maybe pass on this one. 

If you are interested in purchasing these books, check them out on Amazon by clicking the images below!




Books I purchased in July:

On thing I wanted to start doing is tracking when I purchased books.  This will help me track how long I had a book before I actually read the book.  While on a trip to Costco a few weeks ago, I picked up Me Before You by Jojo Moyes and Summer Sisters by Judy Blume.  Justin had taken me to see Me Before You last month and I really enjoyed the movie, so I thought it may be fun to read the book.  And I love Judy Blume, so I just picked up Summer Sisters on a whim.  I will have to let you know what I think when I finish them!




Well that is all for my books for July! 

To check out the other books I have read this year, check out my 2016 Books tab at the top of my page or check out my reading list on Goodreads! If you have a Goodreads account, make sure to add me because I am always on the hunt for a good book recommendation.
