Sunday Salon - July Wrap Up!

I've been on vacation this week and returned last night. We had a great time. We stayed in Atlantic City and then did some day trips from there. We went to Cape May and Sea Isle City in New Jersey. We spent quite a bit of time soaking up the sun by the hotel pool. A very relaxing week.

I actually completed two books and started a third. I read Shopaholic Takes Manhattan and Body Check. I started The Summerhouse by Jude Deveraux, which is pretty good so far.

Here are the books I read in July (I really can't believe we are in August already). The reviews for all these books have been posted on my blog. It was a pretty good month for me.

Holly's Inbox by Holly Denham - Excellent!
Death In Daytime by Eileen Davidson - Very good
Dial Emmy for Murder by Eileen Davidson - Good
Multiple Choice by Claire Cook (audio) - Fair
8 Sandpiper Way by Debbie Macomber - Excellent!
A Cedar Cove Christmas by Debbie Macomber - Excellent!
Benny & Shrimp by Katarina Mazetti - Very good
The DeSantis Marriage by Michelle Reid - Good
Nantucket Nights by Elin Hilderbrand - Excellent!
Shopaholic Takes Manhattan by Sophie Kinsella - Very Good
Body Check by Elle Kennedy - Very good

A total of 11 books! I also completed another reading challenge this week - the Romance Reading Challenge.

I received some more awards which I will post...I'm a bit backlogged on stuff, but I will get to them! I appreciate all the awards given to my blog! Thank you all!

Hope you all had a great week!

  1. Small world ... we were on vacation last week at the Jersey shore, too! Sounds like you had a great time (we did too) and got some good reading in!

  2. That's so funny, Melissa. We probably even saw each other :) Glad you had a good time.

  3. Well done on getting so much reading done Yvonne. You might like to pop in and take the poll I have running about how many books you will read this year. My cat would like that scratching post too.

  4. You had a good reading month. I managed only 7!

  5. You read a lot of books in July! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. :-)

  6. Kerrie - I voted in the poll, thanks for letting me know about it.

    Gautami tripathy - I normally only do about 8 books a month, at most. It's only because of my vacation that I managed 11.

    Nan - You did well, too!

  7. Great month of reading! You know I could easily reread Holly's Inbox already-it was that good. lol.

    Glad you had a good vacation and had a relaxing time!

  8. Thanks, Diane.

    Dar - Holly's Inbox is one I could see re-reading and I never re-read. LOL I can't wait for the sequel.
