I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
Even accounting for a handful of short books and one comic, I had a very good month at 24 books read in July.
I had one 5-star read this month: As Death Draws Near - Anna Lee Huber
and four 4.5-star reads:
I didn't rate anything this month below three stars, but my least favourite book this month was Sprig Muslin by Georgette Heyer and my biggest disappointment was How Not to Be A Dick. Both because personal expectations interfered with reality, not because the books lacked merit.
Most of my reading in May and June was heavy on non-fiction, but this month I've read very little. This is mainly due to the density of the one non-fiction I did get through: Stephen Fry's Incomplete & Utter History of Classical Music; an excellent, informative read that is quite slow going in spite of the constant stream of humour.
Hope everyone is pleased with their July reading and may all your August books be ace! :)
