Month In Review

It's hard to believe that July is already here.  My son is now done his first year of school and heading into French school next year and my daughter is moving on to grade 3.  The time flies!  Now I've got both kids and my husband home for the next two months.  So far I'm excited, though I may be starting my back to school countdown in a few weeks!

June was a difficult month reading-wise.  I would slump then read a bunch in a few days, then slump again.  The start of the World Cup certainly didn't help.  Here is what I read with my GoodReads ratings:

A Proper Family Holiday - Chrissie Manby *****
All Fall Down - Jennifer Weiner ****
Face to Face with Jesus - Samaa Habib ****
Finding Spiritual Whitespace - Bonnie Gray ****
Forty Things to Do Before You're Forty - Alice Ross ****
Women of the Word - Jen Wilkin ****
The Fifth Gospel - Bobby Conway ****
Deathbed Dimes - Naomi Elana Zener ****
Your Fathers, Where Are They? And the Prophets, Do They Live Forever - Dave Eggers ***
The Travelling Tea Shop - Belinda Jones ***
The One & Only - Emily Giffin ***

What I'm Looking Forward to in July
I have decided that for the summer I will be reading only Chick Lit.  I have been buying and buying and not reading and nothing is nicer than soaking up the sun and hot weather with a good chick lit novel.  So this is what I look forward to reading:


  1. You know, for being in a slump, you still read a decent amount of books. You sure read a lot more than I did ;)

    Reading chick lit is a wonderful idea for the summer. I should do that as well that way I get many of my TBR books read.

    Enjoy your time with your husband and kids!
