Month in Review: July

July was not a good month for reading here at My Book Retreat. I did almost get caught up on reviews, so that's good. But reading took a back seat to many other activities. I'm hoping that changes in August, although I don't think I've picked up a book yet! That's not a good way to start the month. You would think summer would be the time to read more, but for me, it's a busier time with lots of family time and travel. That takes me away from reading.

  2. I am impressed you managed to catch up on reviews during the summer! I just posted my JUNE summary, to give you an idea of how far behind I am! lol

    I also read The Girl on the Train in July - thought I was the last one to get to it! ;)

    Hope August is a good reading month!

  3. Looks like you read some good one though! Enjoy your family time, that will always be more important than books. :-)
