Books I'll be reading in July

I didn't do very well with my planned reading in June. I only finished 4 of the 7 books I planned to read. But I did manage to read 7 other books - 3 were the ones I'd started at the end of May.

I'm going to keep my list short this month too, so I can try to catch up on some books I should have finished over the past couple of months.

Here are 7 books I plan to read this month.

Towers Falling by Jewell Parker Rhodes
How did I get it: I got an ARC at BEA.
Why did I get it: It sounded really good. I enjoy stories about 9/11.

Before the Fall by Noah Hawley
How did I get it: I got a copy of this book from the publisher.
Why did I get it: It's one of the She Reads selections for summer.

Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
How did I get it: I borrowed it from the library.
Why did I get it: It's my YA book club selection for July. Sarah picked it.

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
How did I get it: I will most likely end up buying this book in Kindle format
Why did I get it: I love Liane's books. I'm so excited that this book comes out on the 26th.

The Museum of Heartbreak by Meg Leder
How did I get it: I bought this one on Kindle right after reading review last month.
Why did I get it: I was intrigued by the idea that this book deals with heartbreak over more than just a breakup with a guy.

I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai & Christina Lamb
How did I get it: I borrowed it from the library.
Why did I get it: My family book club will be reading this one. My niece's friend selected it.

Gemini by Sonya Mukherjee
How did I get it: I was approved for this title on NetGalley.
Why did I get it: I read about it on Jay Asher's blog back in March. It's about conjoined twins, so obviously, I have to read it.

What are you planning to read this month?

I'm linking up with The Deliberate Reader again this month for her "New on the Stack" series.


  1. I love the cover of The Museum of Heartbreak. I haven't heard of it, but the cover sure has me interested. I bought Before the Fall for my Fargo-loving cousin for her birthday. From what I hear about it, she will love it!

    1. I'm in the middle of The Museum of Heartbreak right now, and it's really cute. I thought it would be a good read because it's not just about romantic heartbreak. But friendship heartbreak as well.

      I'm excited to read Before the Fall. It's gotten a lot of buzz lately.

  2. I Am Malala is a powerful book. I hope you enjoy it!

  3. After reading your posts on Towers Falling and The Museum of Heartbreak I want to read both of them!
