July Reading Recap

July was a great month for vacation, and also some really interesting books. I read:

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
A darker, more sinister sequel to The Raven Boys. I didn't love it quite as much as the original, but it still kept me up late reading.

Audrey, Wait by Robin Benway
A fairy-tale story of a girl who becomes insta-famous after her musician ex-boyfriend writes a hit song about her. It was cute.

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Thought provoking adult contemporary about life and death and love and making your own choices. I think this would make for a great discussion book.

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
Surprisingly touching story about second chances, that made me want to go out and do everything I've ever thought I couldn't. My new favorite Sarah Dessen book.

Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike
The Ghost and The Goth series meets The Scarlet Pimpernel. A little more content than I've come to expect from her books, but it was a very fun read.

Tomorrow starts Utah Book Month! I am very excited to feature a local author and blogger, among other things. It's going to be great!


  1. I'm dying to read The Dream Thieves. Sigh.

  2. I'm dying to read The Dream Thieves too! You lucky girl, you!

  3. Suey & Jenny, you are both totally welcome to borrow my copy! I've lent it out to another friend right now, but once I get it back I'll let you know. :)
