Books Read in July

Here are the books I read in July:

1. Summer Days & Summer Nights -Mulitiple Authors
(started in June, finished in July)
3.5 out of 5 stars
This is a short story anthology about Summer love. Last Winter, the editor of this book, Stephanie Perkins, came out with a Holiday short story anthology. While I didn't think the Summer edition was as good as the Holiday one, I still really enjoyed it.

2. The Unexpected Everything -Morgan Matson
4 out of 5 stars
Morgan Matson is one of my current favorite Young Adult authors and this novel is her latest release. Just like all of her other books, I really enjoyed this novel. My favorite novel of hers is Amy & Roger's Epic Detour and that was the first book I read of hers.

3. The Summer I Turned Pretty -Jenny Han
3 out of 5 stars
This was the first novel in a trilogy by Jenny Han. One of my favorite things about this series aside from the story line was the setting of the novel.

4. It's Not Summer Without You -Jenny Han
3 out of 5 stars

5. We'll Always Have Summer -Jenny Han
4 out of 5 stars

6. Among The Wicked -Linda Castillo
5 out of 5 stars
This is the eighth novel in the Kate Burkholder series, an Amish mystery series, which is one of my all time favorite book series'. The novels are centered around Kate Burkholder, the Chief of Police in a mostly Amish community. Kate has an unique perspective as she is formerly Amish. I wholeheartedly recommend this series if you love a good mystery!

7. First Comes Love -Emily Giffin
5 out of 5 stars
Yet another fabulous new novel by an author that I love dearly. I'm not great at writing book reviews without giving too much away but I will say that I really enjoyed this novel and read it very quickly.
