July 2022 Wrap-Up

July: the return of the dreaded reading slump.

.

I knew July would be a slim reading month, because I had another writing experiment planned (more on the first of those here!), which would take up a lot of my time–but I wasn’t expecting to be hit by a huge reading slump on top of that.

.

First and foremost, I wanted to read the final of my March Madness winners this month, and I did finish Red Queen–after which I spent thirteen days without reading at all. There were heatwaves, and unexpected hospital trips, and various other miseries that overtook my energy, and of course I was pouring what I had left into writing–but I had no inclination to read at all, even when I tried. But then, when all hope felt lost…

Along came It Happened One Summer! I forced myself to start this, to be proactive and get an early jump on my Summer of Love August TBR (see: all the romances). And I was so glad I did. It’s one of the fastest, easiest, most fun books I’ve read all year–not only have I loved and laughed at every page, I’ve zoomed through it. Reading slump officially banished–Tessa Bailey, you’re my hero!

.

And that was my July in books! Here’s to all the romance joy in August, starting with the sequel to It Happened One Summer

How was your reading July?
