July was a hard month (emotionally), so most of my reads were my comfort reads-Cozy Mysteries.
My standout audio books were: The Hour of Death and Abide With Me, both Sister Agatha and Father Selwyn Mysteries (great narrators-they seemed to switch to a new narrator with book 3 Abide With Me).
My Middle Grade stand out was Chirp by Kate Messner.
Pictured are my top reads of the month, all 4 stars:
*Revival Season by Monica West: this was a heavy read that I thought about for days (please check online for trigger warnings for this book)
*Murder at the PTA by Lee Hollis: this felt different that other cozies….heavier maybe? I already purchased book #2.
*The Plot is Murder by VM Burns: a true cozy! A bookstore setting, a book seller and her kick a** grandma (and her friends) solve a murder.
*Yoga Pant Nation by Laurie Gelman: I just love this entire series and this was a perfect continuation of the story.
My disappoint book this month was Arsenic and Adobe by Mia P Manansala…just didn’t work for me.
A total of 16 books read/listened to.
Books are my therapy.
