What I Read: July

With ALA halfway through July and Summer Reading going like crazy at work, I felt like I didn't really have time to read that much-maybe because my TBR pile got huge after ALA!

But I managed to read 14 books this month, so I guess that's not too bad. Anyone have any tips on how to read faster? I need them! And yes, reviews will come-I need to catch up!

1. Ghostgirl: Homecoming by Tonya Hurley-my review
2. Zen and the Art of Faking It by Jordan Sonnenblick-Audiobook CD
3. Into the Wild Nerd Yonder by Julie Halpern
4. Away Laughing on a Fast Camel by Louise Rennison-Audiobook CD
5. Ice by Sarah Beth Durst-my review
6. Storm in the Barn by Matt Phelan
7. Frankie Pickle and the Closet of Doom by Eric Wright
8. Carter Finally Gets It by Brent Crawford-Audiobook CD-my review
9. Sand Chronicles Vol. 1-manga
10. Sand Chronicles Vol.2 -manga
11. Vampire Diaries: The Awakening by L.J. Smith-my review
12. Vampire Diaries: The Struggle by L.J. Smith-my review
13. Scott Pilgrim Versus the World-Scott Pilgrim Vol. 2
14. Graceling by Kristin Cashore-Audiobook CD


  1. I think that 13 is a pretty good month of reading. I sadly only read 6 books in July and I put that down to having my son home now and not much is getting red with taking him to swimming lessons, play dates and library activities. I think I need to find a secret to read faster. If I find out I will let you know.

  2. That's pretty good! I need to learn to read faster too, I only finished 15.

  3. You're a reading rock star! I'm lucky to get six books read over a month. Some times if I'm lucky I'll get a few quick reads and that number will increase....but wow 14 is great! If you have the opportunity to share the advise on speed reading I'd love to hear about it.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
