Reading Wrap-Up: July 2015

July 2015 Books

So, wow. I don’t think this has happened before. 18 books is kind of insane, but between the 24in48 Readathon and a few days away on vacation, I had some serious time to plug away at reading. On top of that, the reading has been good. I haven’t felt slumpy, I’ve been choosing on a whim, and feeling all the better for it. This will probably be my last month of Super Summer Reading Insanity, since I’ll be jumping back into teaching online and the research project I was working on, but it was so great to be on such a high over the last few months. Obviously, I haven’t had the time to review all of these babies, but I’m hoping to do a few round-ups here soon that will at least cover my feelings on many of them.
