Well … my reading definitely picked up this month! Of course awesome selections definitely helped 🙂 Here’s what I read:
Overall a really good month! Some good books in there!! As usual, clicking on the book cover will take you to my review, with the exception of I’ll Be Your Blue Sky, that’ll post next week. … the best book of the month is a three-way tie between Our Kind of Cruelty, I’ll Be Your Blue Sky, and What Remains of Her.
Here’s a quick round up of what all was posted on the blog in July:
- June’s Wrap Up
- First Chapter/First Paragraph: July 3 | July 10 | July 17 | July 24 | July 31
- Review of The Widows from Malabar Hill
- Mailbox Monday: July 9
July was a very good month. I celebrated my birthday :D. I also received the Garmin watch I had been coveting for running! It’s really cool! I also received an Instant Pot. I haven’t tried it out yet, but I’m looking forward to it!
We got a couple of date nights. The first we just stayed at home and chilled. It was kind of spur of the moment and to be honest we didn’t really feel like doing much. The second one we had tickets for the Kenny Chesney concert at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Back in 2002 Kenny Chesney was my first concert! I was really looking forward to seeing him again! Overall he still puts on a good show … but Thomas Rhett was really the star of the night! He’s amazing! I would see him again in a heartbeat!! We stayed the night up there and then spent most of Sunday hitting all the malls. I got a new purse and some shirts with my birthday money. We had a really nice time, it was nice to be able to shop and take our time … and not wrangle children 🙂
Garrett did a basketball camp this month. I’m not sure he’ll ever be a basketball star (he’s not likely to be very tall) but he was really bummed when I didn’t sign him up for basketball season back in January, so I figured I could send him to the camp to see if it’s something he’s interested in. He seemed to like it. I’m still in denial that summer is almost over! A week and a half until he goes back … for FIRST GRADE! That seems so old 😥 He’s super ready though … he loves school. Although he may not love school after he finds out how much work 1st grade is in comparison to kindergarten. Although I don’t know, his kindergarten teacher was much more work oriented than most of the other kindergarten teachers were. Which was a good thing for my child, ha!
Well that’s about all I’ve got. By the time you read this we’ll be in Las Vegas for a quick weekend getaway. We love Vegas (we got married out there!) and try to get back there at least once a year. We have tickets to see Shania Twain. It’s going to be a very quick trip since Nathan changed jobs we had to change our flights and shorten the trip. But it’s ok… you don’t sleep in Vegas anyway 🙂 And then it’ll be time to settle back into the school routine. We definitely thrived on that routine; summer has us all a little out of whack.
Anyway .. until next time, happy reading!
