July 17: Although I have been reading a lot this month I wasn’t doing a great job of tracking it here. I loved Moxie as much as I expected to and was pleasantly surprised by One of Us is Lying. All’s Faire in Middle School was a lot of fun while Knife’s Edge was disappointing. I’m not in the mood to read anything specific and I’ve been putting off dealing with sorting my BookExpo ARCs because they’re a disaster so instead I am trying to pull things that have been at home on my shelves for a while and deciding if I 1. want to read them and 2. want to keep them. So far given the mood I’m in, I’ve been getting rid of a lot of books.
July 24: I’ve been on a reading tear. Owned books down to 294 and to read list down to 137!
July 26: This month is really wringing me out. The Disappearances was quite good. Not at all what I was expecting.
