July Wrap Up

THE YEAR IS GOING BY TOO FAST! Make it stoooop. I’m kidding, don’t. You’ll break the universe trying. And Trump is doing that fine on his own. Sigh.

Anyway, July was a tough month for reasons I don’t get into so I read quite a bit. Like many other people, I use fiction to escape reality and it works darned well for me.

I read 42 books which feels like a lot but isn’t really when you consider the number of picturebooks and graphic novels I read.

  1. A Conjuring of Light – V. E. Schwab
  2. The Library of Fates – Aditi Khorana
  3. There is a Bird on Your Head – Mo Willems
