I can't believe we are half way through this year already! July always seems to be the month out of the year that I read the most books, so I have looked forward to it every year since I started blogging. In July this year I read 8 books. I know that doesn't seem like a lot to many of you that are able to whip out 15+ books in any given month, but it's a big deal for me. It's less than I read in July of 2013 (I read 11 that year). With school starting back for my oldest this week, and my youngest the week after, unfortunately that also brings a drop in my available time to read. I had a lot of goals of books I wanted to get through this summer and only met a few of them. Sigh.... Oh well - onward I go!

In other non book related news - the weather has been exceptional this last week, the end of July! In south Alabama it's been in the upper 80's during the day with low humidity and a slight breeze most days. This is incredibly unusual as July and August are some of the hottest months of our year down here, temps reaching 100 and high humidity, but we have been so thankful for the cooler weather. Sure helps the AC bill!!

This is a BIG week with the release of Divergent on DVD (yes, mine is pre-ordered), and the release of the last Lux book (Opposition) (yes, mine is pre-ordered!) EEEEEK! Enjoy your start to August! 

Thanks for stopping by!

    Nice! I still need to read Kiss of Deception as well! It's in the TBR mountain...somewhere. It might have been buried by now! Hope you enjoy all your new reads!

  4. You're in South Alabama! I'm in North Alabama. Always fun to find a neighbor! I can't believe how fast this year is flying. My older kids start school Tuesday and the youngest the week after. I'm kind of reverse in that I tend to find more time to read during the school year. I've heard great things about I Hunt Killers and am wanting to give that a try. Have a great week!
