What? Is it halfway into the month already? Seems a bit late to be now posting a Read and TBR…. Ah well, it is what it is! Lol. I like these posts as they help me keep track of my reading lists too.
I’ve had a busy July and August so far… and that included being on a few weeks vacation from work. We were even able to take the boys to the beach for a few days. It was lovely to be out of the house for a bit, even if I’m now two very distinct colours, thanks to my short-sleeved rash-guard! I kid you not, my arms look like I have special sleeves on.
One thing that kept me very occupied was building and launching my first online beginner’s Spanish and culture course. I’ve been playing around with the idea for a couple of years and finally got it sorted this year. I’m so excited as it combines two of my passions and I have full control over the curriculum and how the material is taught. If you’re interested or know someone who might be, check it out here: The Beginner Spanish Experience.
Back to the books! July’s reading list came in at 7 books (although one was a children’s book). It was another busy month and I didn’t read as much as usual and posted almost no reviews! 😳 July’s 7 were a mix of romances, mysteries and a couple of Christmas in July reads.
Here’s what I read in July.
The Cozy Mysteries were Prelude to a Witch, Bars and Boxcars and Solstice Spirits. There were three contemporary romance novels in Princess and Country, Christmas Wishes at the Chocolate Shop and Perfecto Para Tí. One suspense novel, Mrs. Rochester’s Ghost and one beautiful children’s story, Venus Underwater. Hmm… seems like I reviewed a couple more than I thought!
Two of these books came via my Kindle Unlimited subscription; one was from the Netgalley collection; and three were for blog tours/ author requests.
I added 6 to my TBR for this month. I have three blog tours, one author request and a couple purely for fun reads. Here’s the plan…
Much A’broom About Nothing by Erin Johnson
All Swell That Ends Spell by Trixie Silvertale
Only the Buried by Amanda M. Lee
Deadly Summer Nights by Vciki Delany
Snowflakes Over the Starfish Cafe by Jessica Redland
We Belong Together by Beth Moran
