July Reads (2019 edition)

estimated 3 min read

July was a good month for reading … candy. I read and read and read some more (often staying up far past my bedtime). Many people enjoy binging TV shows, I do that with books like these! I finished the 29th book in the in Death series and I’ve decided these sorts of books are candy. They are fun and nothing more. I read more of the Wayward Children series and they are the sort of book I wish I could have devoured in Jr High. I started the InCryptid series and I’ll probably finish them because they exist and I haven’t read them all yet.

Recommendations

This month (and every month) I recommend that you read what you want to read. The In Death series is fun. Do I care much for the romance part? No. Do I find the detective work fun? Yes. Do I most enjoy the EDD part? Yes. Do I want an autochef? Of course. Have I found myself consuming more chocolate bars and coffee than normal (and craving an orange fizzy)? Yes. Many people enjoy binging TV shows, I do that with books like these!

I also highly recommend not continuing to be that 9 year old under the covers with a book and a flashlight (or an ereader). It was painful the next day back then … and I prove time and again, it’s still painful the next day when I stay up late reading now. I’m very thankful for coffee! A friend commented recently that they found their son reading long past his bedtime and all I could recommend was some hot chocolate the next morning.

Next reads

I will finish the in Death series soon. I’m at the whims of the public library systems (I have through book 33 checked out already). I’m not sure what’s going to catch my fancy when that happens. I have a dusty pile of books from Netgalley that I need to read and review. However, I’ve noticed my eyes keep looking at my Valdemar collection and I’m overdue for one of my annual rereads.
