July is typically a very busy month for us with multiple family gatherings and a vacation. This year was no exception and I was not surprised at all that I only finished four books last month.

Here’s what I read in July:

Novels

Miss Buncle’s Book by D.E. Stevenson

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle (review coming soon)

 

Nonfiction
Get Well Soon: History’s Worst Plagues and the Heroes Who Fought Them by Jennifer Wright (audio narrated by Gabra Zackman)

Unmentionable: The Victorian Lady’s Guide to Sex, Marriage, and Manners by Therese O’Neill (audio narrated by Betsy Foldes Meiman) (review coming soon)

 

Hope you had a great reading month in July. What was the best book you read last month?
