Monthly Wrap Up

July 2015 Wrap Up

July shaped up to be a really good reading month for me. In fact, it was the best month I had in terms of numbers of books I read all year! I’m overlooking the fact that 2 of tho se “books” I read were novellas. I was just reading up a storm all month long! I found myself reading three e-books in a row … something I never do. But it’s so easy to read an e-book while feeding a baby 🙂

July: 6 books (YTD: 25)

I’m looking forward to August. I’ve got some great upcoming reviews to share with you, plus I’ve got some great reading ahead of me! AND … I’m in countdown mode to our vacation in September. I’m so excited. My husband and I have actually not been on vacation since LAST September. That’s so unusual for us. But with my pregnancy having some bumps along the way and then moving, there was no time to travel anywhere other than 1 night away to Nashville. I’m also excited because it’ll be Garrett’s first cruise! I am a huge fan of cruises (Nathan, not so much) and I hope that Garrett shares my love of them! Sadly we have to leave Katelyn home with my parents this time because she’s not old enough for a cruise yet (they require them to be 6 months old). So it will be my first time away from her overnight since she was born … and it will be 8 very long nights without her. But she’ll get to go to Disney World with all of us in December so I’m looking forward to that as well 🙂

That’s about all I have for this month. Happy reading!!
