July Wrap Up



I have never done a monthly wrap up, but I am sitting here in a quiet house (both kids at camp) and it is POURING out,  and I am not running around like crazy for once, so here it goes!

July was a slow month for me reading wise because I have been surprisingly busy.  I began the month in Bermuda (I SO wish I was still there), and have been running around, errands, town pool, etc  the rest of the time.  I decided to start running- and NO nothing was chasing me- for the first time in over twenty years.  I am slowly working myself up to be able to run in this years Tunnel To Towers 5k that honors a friend I lost in 9/11, Stephen Siller.  So, it’s been a busy time.

Here is what I did reading/blog wise:

Books Read

I managed to finish 6 books this month, which is ok.  I read-

The Wishing Tree

Summerset Abbey

The Prodigal

The Clock of Life

The Light in the Ruins

The Dark Monk

I think I liked The Light in The Ruins by Chris Bohjalian best, followed very closely by The Dark Monk, which I will post a review for tomorrow.

I published 12 posts, 5 of which were reviews.

I am getting back into a groove now, finding time to run, clean, and read/post all in one day.  It will help that the darling daughter will be in field hockey camp from 9-4 all of next week.  I hope to get lots done, before heading for a mini vacay in Lake Placid next week.

How was your July?

  1. I love wrap up posts! I think it’s so awesome you’re starting to run again! I’ve never been a runner but I would like to be one and I’ve been thinking about doing a program to help! The Tunnel to Towers run sounds lovely.

    The Light in the Ruins sounds wonderful!

    I hope you have fun at Lake Placid!

  2. I always enjoy wrap-up posts 🙂 I really enjoyed the new Bohjalian as well! Here’s to a great August!

    • I am trying to get my mom to put down the Iris Johansen and read him!
      I just finished a book that was mystery/historical fiction call The Bones of Paris by Laurie R. King. If you like hf, this was awesome.
