Books Read in July 2022

  The Agathas -Kathleen Glasgow & Liz Lawson (My Rating: 4 stars) I really enjoyed this book. I found this book either through IG (I follow a lot of book accounts on there) or a blog. I thought it was a very interesting story line. It was a mystery without being scary or gory which my over-active imagination and anxiety always really appreciate! Flying Solo -Linda Holmes (My Rating: 2 stars) I had such high hopes for this novel because I absolutely loved the author's debut novel ( Evvie Drake Starts Over ), which I highly recommend. However, I was highly disappointed by this novel. While I did like the main character, I just couldn't get into this novel. I'm glad I finished it and I did enjoy how the author wrapped up the story. Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between -Jennifer E. Smith (My Rating: 3 stars) I enjoyed this novel a lot. I liked the characters and the storyline. This book was made into a Netflix movie and right after I finished the novel, I watched the

 Adult Assembly Required -Abbi Waxman (My Rating: 3 stars) I really like Abbi's style of writing. This wasn't my favorite book that she's written but I still really liked it and it kept me entertained and interested. A Killer Sundae -Abby Collette  (An Ice Cream Parlor Mystery #3) (My Rating: 3 stars) First off, how cute is that cover? I love the colors, the ice cream looks delicious and the cat is so cute. I think this is the last novel in this series because she has started writing a new series. I think this series is very refreshing and cute. I really liked all three books. I liked that the series wasn't gory or suspenseful too much because my anxiety definitely gets the best of me with books like that. People We Meet on Vacation -Emily Henry (My Rating: 3 stars) I enjoyed this book. I've read all of Emily Henry's novel this year and while this wasn't my favorite novel she's written, I really enjoyed the storyline and the characters. The Stand In
