July's Blurby Recap

Still not reading as much as I usually do in the summer. I'm blaming it on working outside the home for 12 hours a week. I must have used those 12 hours for lots of good reading. But here's what I accomplished this month:

Pawn of Prophecy by David Eddings: The beginning of Garion's adventure in which he learns his life up to this point may not have been what it seemed to be.

The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin: Mr. Westing dies and sends bunch of people who are connected to him somehow on a quest to figure out his murderer.

The Painted Veil by W. Somerset Maugham: Kitty's husband makes her go with him to fight a cholera epidemic after her learns of her affair.

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart: Frankie wants badly to infiltrate the boys' secret club.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy: A father and his son are among the last survivors of a post-apocalyptic America and follow the road to their final destination.

One Whole and Perfect Day by Judith Clarke: Lily dreams of a day where all her family can solve their differences and come together happily.

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen: Remy has issues with love but learns that maybe she can change her views.

For my favorites of the month I'd have to say The Road, and One Whole and Perfect Day.

What did you read this month?


  1. Great list of titles. For not reading as much as usual, you're still reading a lot. I think I read 8 in July. I'll be posting my list next week.

    Diary of an Eccentric

  2. I also read Frankie this month! I didn't really like it all that much. It was okay.
