Looking back, my July list of “have read” books looks short, but since two of these books were 600-800 pages I feel like it was a pretty productive month. Here’s how my reading list finished up…
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
Timebound by Rysa Walker
The Traitor’s Wife by Allison Pataki
Queste by Angie Sage
I’m still loving the Septimus Heap series, and I thought City of Heavenly Fire was a great finale to the Mortal Instruments books. But I think my favorite book of the month was Timebound by Rysa Walker. I just love a good story where we can skip through time, and Timebound gave a very interesting perspective on that ability and addressed the fact that you can actually skip through time multiple times and have multiple versions of yourself in the same year at different times. Whoa. Mind blown. I dreamt about time travel for a solid week and since I really hope this becomes a series, I have to give it top honors for the month. Great story, fun characters and time travel – who wouldn’t love that?
This month the final book for my most favorite series ever has hit the shelves so I’ve decided to go back and re-read the first two books to make sure I’m up to speed on everything before I jump into book three. My goal is to savor these books and read slowly, but we’ll see how that plays out. In any case, here’s my plan for August….
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness
Landline by Rainbow Rowell
Still Life with Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen
