Hey July – you were pretty great in terms of reading! I got quite a bit of reading done during the month. Some things helped with that. It was school holidays for the first two weeks here and the weather was a bit grim for probably half of that and quite often I just got up, got my kids breakfast, made myself a cup of tea and went back to bed with a book while it poured with rain outside. Also my husband couldn’t drive or really go anywhere as he recovered from his operation and so we spent a lot of time during the month just at home and that meant reading time.

It gave me the chance to tackle a couple of non-fiction titles that have been on my TBR for a while – I’ll Be Gone In The Dark by Michelle McNamara and What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton. Both were really intriguing reads and I’m glad that I was finally able to make some time for them. I don’t read a lot of non-fiction but when I read a good one it always makes me want to put a little more on my reading piles.

But that will probably not be happening this month – as you can see, the August pile is well, massive! The bottom one is also 4 books in 1 so that makes quite a lot of books to get through for this month, but they all look really good. I’m doing a blog tour for The Botanist’s Daughter by Kayte Nunn, my review will be up on the 10th. I’ve been a big fan of Caroline Overington’s previous novels, so I’m looking forward to this one. I’ve also read the first book in the 4-in-1, which all central around a small town and the closure of a cotton mill and really enjoyed it so I’m looking forward to the next three.

I hope July was just as good a reading month for you as it was for me. If you’ve read anything on my August pile feel free to let me know, or share your favourite read from July. Wish me luck as I dive into this huge pile and hopefully I find just as many 5-star reads this month as I did in July. Or maybe even more.
