1. My grandmothers, mom and dad, and sisters were/are all readers, and many of my childhood friends as well. I had a neighbor friend who would sometimes just come over & read her own book while I read mine. 🤓
2. Barbara Kingsolver
3. Yes, we‘ve been together about 15 years. The Caretakers is next.

I tag @Enchanted_Bibliophile and @EadieB since you both tagged me to play last month & I dropped the ball.

Here‘s my reading summary for July! It was an excellent month of reading, so it‘s hard to choose one favorite for the month.
Want to guess which one I picked?

It was…

The House in the Cerulean Sea!

Day 3 of the #20in4 #Readathon went well. I got a lot of reading done today and am now at 155/204 pages toward my goal.
My favorites so far are a short story by Louise Erdrich, also an excerpt from A Train in Winter, a book about the women of the French Resistance sent to Birkenau during WWII, and a photo essay, Un-Possible Retour by Clarisse d‘Arcimoles.
I hope you‘re having fun too @Andrew65 !

I met one more #JubilantJuly goal today by reading this book.
I loved this adventurous story of Arthur Less, a gay middle-aged man who goes on a trip around the world to have an excuse to miss his ex‘s wedding.
The shifting pov and time frames were a challenge for me, but I still enjoyed riding along on Less‘s journey. It also won a #PulitzerPrize. Bonus points for #OwnVoices . Read if you like love stories.

Bonus points for BIPOC main characters, + queer characters. Read if you like books celebrating the power of the written word, adventures, or stories with dog bffs.

I finished this book earlier this week (with the help of Bombadil) and it has stayed with me. I loved the characters, and how the author used them to create unique similes for homophobia and racism. Lots of funny moments too. Bonus points for gay main characters.
Read if you love Harry Potter, magical realism, or found family.

Unfamiliar Fishes | Sarah Vowell

Last week I finished this book which I started on a flight to Maui. I knew the very basic history of Hawaii & wanted to know more before visiting.
I really like how Sarah Vowell tells history, in a linear way that can sidebar to other relevant events in time, and then back again. Natural history is also addressed throughout. Photographs or illustrations were the only thing missing.
I read The Wordy Shipmates, but I liked this more.

❌ My goal for the #20in4 Readathon was read for 10 hours to hopefully finish this book. I totaled my time today, 9 hours 56 minutes! Lol wish I had checked last night to read 4 minutes more and be legitimate.
💉I really got into this book and spent a lot of time worrying about the kids in the story. I‘ve seen it labeled as horror, and although it was a horrific tale, I would say it‘s closer to science fiction.

📚 I finished this book today. It‘s 2nd in the Carson Stable Mystery series.
🔎 This story brings us back to Annie‘s ranch and finds her, once again, inadvertently wrapped up in solving a murder investigation. Fun setting for a cozy mystery. I wasn‘t able to figure out the murderer in the first book, but I knew this one from the beginning.

2️⃣ It‘s probably a tie between To Kill a Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby, and the Harry Potter books.

🌲 Happy Earth Day!
🐕‍🦺 This week I read The Hundred and One Dalmatians for the #MonthlyKeyWordGXO challenge (one). Very cute and the illustrations by Alex T. Smith enhanced the story.
I wasn‘t sure if I‘d like a children‘s story but it was fun. I‘m going to read The Starlight Barking next.
