Month In Review: July 2019

monthinreview

I know I probably say this every month but how is July over already?! This year has been going by so much faster than previous years… or at least it feels that way. I had a really great reading month though so at least there is that to show for it. I listened to a lot of audiobooks at work of dramatized classics that I’ve been wanting to read again. I re-discovered my love for Jane Eyre. Thandie Newton narrated the audio for that one and she did a fantastic job. I also read some review copies, all of which were great.

I also had a pretty good book haul. Awhile back I had ordered a used copy of Belleweather by Susanna Kearsley from ThriftBooks that was supposed to be in good condition but it arrived and was completely water damaged and covered in library stickers. So I knew I would not be keeping that copy. I went to Half Price Books a couple of weeks ago with a friend and found a near perfect copy for only $7.99 so I’m really happy to finally have a good copy for my collection. I also ended up getting two Kristin Hannah books on two different occasions. I loved her book The Great Alone and knew I needed to read more of her books so when I saw these at Target, I couldn’t resist. Barnes & Noble was having a Stephen King sale the same day as Amazon Prime Day so I ended up getting three of his books. They were buy two, get the third free.
