What I Read in July


This summer is flying by and can we all just take a moment to be thrilled by that?  I know I'm pretty much alone in this, but summer is my least favorite.  I hate the heat, especially here in Georgia.  It makes being outside just miserable at all times except in the early mornings and late in the evening and, let's face it, those are prime times for being in bed.  I have found some very cool (pun intended) spots in my area by the creek where I can stand the heat for an hour or two and enjoy a book with my feet in the water and some shade.  I've done a trip to the Hiawassee to float with some friends and hope to do at least one more before the summer ends.  And I've got some pool plans in my near future.  

Thankfully, to beat the heat, I've been spending lots of time with books.  I'm finally getting back into my reading groove after almost a year long slump.  I'm finding great solace in books again, both in terms of escape and in terms of healing.  My mother and I have bonded over some very good Christian non-fiction and I'm currently wading through the beauty that is the words of Brene Brown.  All of it is wonderful, and I'm pleased to report July as my best reading month in over a year.  Here's what I read.

  1. Just like you, I don't like summers at all. The heat just gets over my head and i feel so lazy to do anything other than sleeping all day long.
