Books Read in July

July 31, 2017


  1. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. A ferocious novel… a hard, but important and real read. Have been recommending to teens and adults since I read it. Hoping it gets assigned in schools.
  2. Blood Alone by James R. Benn- still rereading Billy Boyle and enjoying the series
  3. The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. I owe this a book review. I also owe this book an apology for how long it took to get me to read it. I hated her previous book, Everything Everything… but The Sun is Also a Star was really good.
  4. Evil for Evil by James R. Benn. More Billy Boyle
  5. The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules by Catharina Ingleman-Sunderberg
  6. Gumbo Tales by Sara Roahen, a foodie memoir coming to grips with New Orleans, before and after Katrina. Good stuff.
  7. Shadowhouse Fall by Daniel Jose Older. This book!!!!! Read my review.
  8. Lois Lane: Double Down by Gwenda Bond, a smart, fun adventure with plenty of mad science. I really enjoy this series

Graphic Novels/Manga 

  1. Children of the Sea Vol 2 by Daisuke Igarashi
  2. Children of the Sea Vol 3 by Daisuke Igarashi
  3. Goldie Vance Vol 2 by Hope Larson


Anne of Windy Poplars by L.M. Montgomery

Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery

So a grand total of… 14 for the month.

And here it is, July going into August, and I have bought my first book of the year. To the vast surprise of… probably nobody… I have purchased a copy of Daniel Jose Older’s short story collection, Salsa Nocturna, ordered from Burton’s Bookstore, my favorite independent bookstore.

And I’m at $122 for EveryLibrary. Not too shabby.
