I don’t know about you, but the end of July pretty much marks the end of the summer here in Kansas. The girls go back to school on August 12th, and while I’ve got my John Green book club through the end of the month (the 3-5th grade one died, unfortunately), my responsibilities at work are kind of pulling back. Though I’ve got a project in the works that hopefully will be Fun and a lot of people will want to participate. More later.
Anyway, I spent a lot of time watching movies — both Pirates of the Caribbean and Lord of the Rings with A; Say Anything with C; Howl’s Moving Castle with K; Godzilla with Hubby — and a lot of time at the pool, so I didn’t get much reading done. I am thinking, though, that I’m due for a good dose of non-fiction. Maybe as the weather starts cooling off..
I didn’t really have a strong favorite this month, but I did thoroughly enjoy this one:
|The Glass Sentence|
it really was a wonderful world and a gripping story (once it got going; it really is slow to start).
As for the rest:
|A Horse Called Hero|
|Loot: How to Steal a Fortune|
|Randi Rhodes, Ninja Detective: The Case of the Time Capsule Bandit (audio)|
|The House of Pooh (audio)|
|The Bitter Kingdom|
|Keeping the Castle (audio)|
|The Summer Prince|
I read two John Green books, but I didn’t feel a need to re-review them.
|Cleopatra in Space|
|The End of Your Life Book Club|
