In the last week I have packed, moved, and resettled into my new home. I plead guilty in the case of non posting. I was busy :^)
Anyway, even though there are still two days left in the month, I thought I would talk about the books I read in July. Last month I guessed at how many books I read in June, and the comments got me thinking - why not keep track of what I read? For a month anyway. So here they are:
JULY BOOKS - THE GOOD, THE BETTER, AND THE REST
These are the books I enjoyed, even if they didn't really completely win my heart.
Fevre Dream by George R.R. Martin
The Cave by Anne McLean Matthews
To the Power of Three by Laura Lippman
Nightmare at 20,000 Feet and other stories by Richard Matheson
*update* apparently I'm not so good with lists after all. I forgot to add Angela Carter's The Magic Toyshop to The Good.*
These books wowed me into silence and awe. Most wonderous and magical, and should be read immediately!
Into the Woods and The Likeness, both by Tana French
These two are mysteries with a touch (but a very light touch) of the supernatural. Very beautiful, very moving, and very readable.
Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist
This one has already been hyped up, so I'll keep it short: it won't go down as the best book I've ever read, but I will reread it again. Child Vampires are not happy creatures.
And the Rest
The books I didn't enjoy are not on this list, simply because I don't finish the ones I don't like. If I can't get into a book, I return it to the library. So while the following books did not blow me away - I did finish each and every one. These were not bad books. They just were not my favorites.
Come Closer by Sara Grann
Down River by John Hart
The Sculptress by Minette Walters
Blue Heaven by CJ Box
Bones by Jan Burke
So that is my list! Enjoy and write well
