"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

July Roundup

Where is the summer going?! I actually found a lot of time to read in July and managed to not only get back on track for my year reading goal but I think I'm 4 books AHEAD. Woo-hoo! Thanks to everyone who recommended me books, I might not always end up liking the picks but I cherish the opportunity to see what you all like and to veer away from my usual sub-genres. August is a Kindle Freebie month, oh the varied ways this can go off track, hahah. Hopeful I can find some hidden gems and pass them along to you!



Links are to my review or the book page if I didn't write one and the Recommended picks are in italics.

Almost made the goal of 20 books. Looks like a little bit more of a mediocre month for me with 8 - 2 stars (ok) rated. Having a 4.5 one though, is always a good feeling, especially if you're a rating Grinch like me ;)
