From My Bookshelf Series

From My Bookshelf: Wonders, March, Book, Secret

I’ve talked about how many (most) of the books on my bookshelves are unread. Whether I’ve started them or have never opened them to the first page, there are many titles that call out to me to read them next, even as I bring a new book home from a bookstore or stack up my most recent library books. It can be overwhelming, sure, but…I don’t know where I was going with this, but what I do know is the four books featured in this edition of From My Bookshelf fall into that unread category.

Monthly Wrap-Up | July 2019

And the year just continues to fly by. I’d be lying if I said I’m 100% sad about August’s speedy arrival because I’m [f]all about what comes after it (September), but I won’t get into that now.

Instead I’m looking back on my reading, blogging, and miscellany during the month of July. I’ve been in a strange reading place this summer, as I feel like I’ve read so much more than I actually have. I’m chalking it up to reading [too] many books at once – a habit of mine that has really intensified over the past couple of months. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed the books I read this month and am happy with what I managed to write here on the blog. So let’s get into it.
