July Reads and Reviews
July was a great month of reads! I got through a lot of books (lots sitting by the pool or while kayaking!) I also crossed off two more books from the Goodreads Winners of 2022 which is always exciting for me. Here are all the books I read this month-
Heartstopper by Alice Oseman
I read the first two books in this series because it won the Goodreads award last year, and I really enjoyed it! The books follow a British high school boy who's gay, and trying to figure out his friendships and relationships. It really captures the experience of being in school and not really knowing who you are or who you can trust, and finding yourself. I found out this is also a Netflix series so I want to check that out and keep reading the series as well!
Sea of Tranquility by Emily St John Mandel
Legends and Lattes by Travis Baldree
Meet Me at the Lake by Carley Fortune
Romantic Comedy by Curtis Sittenfeld
Love, Pamela by Pamela Anderson
The Soulmate by Sally Hepworth - This was my bookclub pick for the month, and it was just OK. I liked the audio a lot and was excited to see what was going to happen- but it ended up dragging on for way too long and the ending wasn't satisfying at all.
A Thousand Miles by Bridget Morrissey - Got through about half of this before giving up. I didn't like the characters or believe in their relationship, and also found the whole road trip to be boring to follow.
