Monthly Wrap-Up: July

Posted on August 2, 2021 by Nadene @ Totally Addicted to Reading in Monthly Wrap-up / 20 Comments

This month has been a busy month work wise. It is a wonder I got any reading done.  I had to travel  310 km per day for four days for work.  At the end of those four days I was a total wreck.  In my last post I mentioned  that the hurricane season had begun. Well we got a little taste of Elsa. By the time she passed the island she had downgraded to a tropical storm.  There was flooding in some areas, but thank goodness there were no major issues. 

I can’t believe that it has been two years since I got married, It seemed like only yesterday. On July 20th I celebrated my 2nd wedding anniversary. 


I read twelve (12) books and reviewed ten.  Here is the list of books that were read and reviewed. The Burning Girls was read in June. 

  1. [5 Jul] The Burning Girls by Rita Herron ★★★★½
  2. [7 Jul] She Has a Broken Thing Where Her Heart Should Be by J.D. Barker ★★★★
  3. [8 Jul] The Lily Garden by Barbara Josselsohn ★★★★
  4. [11 Jul] The Mixtape by Brittainy C. Cherry ★★★★
  5. [14 Jul] Into the Night by Cynthia Eden ★★★★
  6. [19 Jul] Darkness Rises by Dianne Duvall ★★★★½
  7. [20 Jul] Serves Me Wright by K.A. Linde ★★★★
