Bookish Thoughts & Top Picks for July

A representation of some of the books I enjoyed most this month!

I’m combining my Bookish Thoughts and Top Picks this month. July has been a different reading month, so this blog will be a little different than my usual. For the first time in 2022, I let myself re-read books. I have a huge “To Be Read” pile this year. I haven’t let myself re-read books, not when there are so many new books calling my name. But… Illness hit our house and I needed to simplify my reading life. I wanted to get lost in a story and not have to put any thought into how it was going to end. I finally finished The Glenbrooke Series which I started last year and stopped midway through. Robin Jones Gunn is my ultimate comfort reading author. I re-read Roseanna M. White’s British Historical Fiction because it’s my favorite of her writings. I plan to re-read her The Secrets of the Isles Series in August in preparation for the final book of the series being released in September (Worthy of Lengend). I re-read Sweet Right Here by Jenny B. Jones before her next A Lost Story Bookshop release at the end of August (First to Fall). I re-read The Caraval Series and Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber to refresh myself before The Ballad of Never After releases in September. I’m so excited for new books coming my way soon! I didn’t love being sick this month, but I did take advantage of the extra down time. Books and the characters in them become dear friends to me. Revisiting my “friends” felt like a sweet treat!

  1. Yay for Robin Jones Gunn and rereads! I’ve only read the Glenbrooke series once but have a tendency to reread her Christy /friends series

      I’ve lost track how many times I’ve read the Glenbrooke series. ☺️ The Christy Miller books were what got me hooked on reading in middle school and I’ve read her books & friends numerous times as well. They are all dear forever friends to me! ❤️
