So how did your reading month pan out?


  1. Hi Kathryn, I hope you have a great July.

  2. I've had problems commenting on you sight. - I'm glad my comment went through. Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

    1. Many thanks Pat. Not sure why you are having difficulty commenting, it can be such a pain when it doesn't work well.

  3. Great month of reading, Kathryn. I hope you get more of your own books read in July!

    1. Oh Mary I am planning on it! And watch for August - I am planning on an all month read my own books!

  4. You had a great month! I also read and reviewed 12 books, and they were a nice mix again.

    Looking forward to reading my copies of The Lost for Words Bookshop and Best Beach Ever. Enjoy July!

    1. So we hit the same number this month, unusual because you mostly read more than me, but nice to say SNAP this month.

  5. Replies
    1. Thanks and right back at you and your family.

  6. You did awesome! Your top read is on my must-read list! Happy July!

  7. I heard the Lost for Words Bookshop is excellent! Happy reading in July.

  8. My last two books were duds, but I remain hopeful. 😊
    You’ve read some good ones.

  9. I hope you enjoy reading more of your own books in July. Always nice to have less reviewing obligations. Happy July!

  10. Hi Katheryn,
    Great month of reading. I'll be checking your
    list of books. Have a great day!

  11. You had a great month, Kathryn! I hope you get to tackle more of your own books in July. In May, I didn't read any library books so I rewarded myself by requesting a bunch of audiobooks on Overdrive and binged LOL! I have multiple holds checked out at the same time, so I didn't get to any audiobooks for review but at least I got to some audiobooks that I've been wanting to listen to for a long time! Happy July!

  12. You had a good reading month for how crazy your month was! I love your idea for your birthday month! That's so fantastic. I really want to try Wendy Wax. I have the first book on my TBR but haven't gotten to it yet. I need Lost for Words Bookshop just based off the title alone but now it's a must read since you enjoyed it!

  13. You had a great June, Kathryn.

    Stephanie Butland was new to me too...loved her book, and I see you did too. :)

    I don't know any of those other authors.

    ENJOY July!!

  14. I enjoyed Maria Shriver's I've Been Thinking. It is nice to pick up and quick read one of there thoughts/stories. Hope your July reading is filled with great ones from your shelves.

  15. Wow, 12 books in June! That's pretty amazing, especially considering how busy you were with your family. I read 6 in June, but it's normal for me to read less quantity during my Big Book Summer Challenge - loving those longer books, though!

    Looks like you have some great books lined up for this month, too - enjoy!
