I am linking up to both the Sunday Post @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and the Sunday Post @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction.
Well last month I was feeling kind of blah and this month wasn't really that different. I have had very little motivation. I even wrote a discussion post about it. But here's the weird thing: I swear that ten minutes after I published that post, I got a sudden burst of energy and proceeded to write three more posts and catch up on some blog comments. Maybe writing about it helped. I don't want to jinx it though so we will see what happens.
My husband and I went to Geneva, Switzerland for a short weekend. Geneva is an expensive city, but we both loved it. The food was amazing and I loved the scenery. We also took a day trip to Chamonix, France and went to the top of the mountain there for some stunning views of the French Alps. It is so hard to capture the beauty in pictures, but we tried.
Here are a few:
In terms of reading, I had a much better month than last month. The quantity was about the same, but the quality was so much better. I didn't really feel like doing anything but reading and I managed to make quite the dent in my TBR. And I read so many amazing books. There were only a few that I didn't care for.
I read 22 books this month (plus a couple of unpublished manuscripts that I beta read for people):
So hard to choose! I read a lot of really amazing books this month. Naturally, I refuse to limit my best of the month to just one.
Most disappointing book read this month:
Sigh. I would like to say that I was expecting better things from Crippled America, but I wasn't. I don't talk a lot about politics and I won't start now. I won't mention who I support or who I voted for in the primaries. But I will say that I am not a Trump supporter. I got the book for free and decided to give it a shot. If you're interested, you can read my full review on Goodreads. Oh, and South of Sunshine freaking made me angry so I had to include it too.
