July Wrap Up

I'm linking up with Modern Mrs. Darcy to share this month's wrap up. 

I was surprised to see that I read seven books total this month. It felt like I wasn't really making any reading progress, but I finished the month with some really short books. That upped my numbers a bit. Here are the books I read and what I thought about them.

The Widows of Malabar Hill (Perveen Mistry, #1)
This was an enjoyable start to a new historical mystery series. I loved the exotic setting and learning about Indian culture. The heroine was smart and spirited. Recommended if you enjoy historical mysteries.

The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond

This was a great summer read! Lots of suspense and mystery. I love thrillers, and it's hard to find them in historical settings. I definitely recommend this if you're in the mood for something creepy.
I was given this book by the publisher for review.

The Perfect Couple

I had very low expectations for this book , and I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it. It was a perfect summer read. Juicy and fun. Recommended if your looking for something to read by the pool. 

I'll Be Your Blue Sky

My feelings about this book are mixed. I enjoyed the historical timeline , but felt it was underdeveloped. The characters in the contemporary timeline got on my nerves. Still, it was a fun book to read on vacation. Trigger warning: the historical timeline deals with spousal abuse.

Convenience Store Woman

This was an odd little book. It was a quick read, and I enjoyed learning more about the culture of Japan. I'm not sure I would recommend it though. It was very strange.

Blue Horses by Mary Oliver

I had to read a poetry book for my reading challenge this year, so I picked this one. It was fine, but I think I would have enjoyed Emily Dickinson more.

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

My daughter recommended this one to me, and I devoured it in an afternoon. It's twisty and mind bending. It's my first Agatha Christie, and I really enjoyed it. We followed up our reading by watching the BBC adaptation and complaining about all of the changes.

What did you read this month? Let me know in the comments.
