July round-up

July just flew by, I still struggle to focus on anything for more than 15 minutes at a time (still fighting not to read news so much), so I’m a bit behind with 20 Books of Summer hosted by Cathy at 746books, I finished 11 books, working on the 12th, there’s still a month to go so I may just make it. To help me on my way I decided to switch to crime and mystery with Ragnar Jonasson, also Iceland doesn’t seem so far weather-wise just now, as summer decided to take a break in the UK.

I’m very proud of myself, because this month I bought less books than I read, so overall I can say my TBR pile/bookshelf got a tiny bit smaller (by 3 books to be exact, but it’s still progress).

I think August will be awesome, I’m finally going for vacation! Can’t wait.

How was your July?

50. Blackout – Ragnar Jonasson (r) – secon part of the Dark Iceland series, every bit a good as the first one
49 Keeping an Eye Open: Essays on Art – Julian Barnes (r) – a great escape into the world of art
48. Errors of Evaluation – Paola Pica (r) – short and sharp book about how people perceive each other and how one person can have many faces
47. Wariatka – Joanna Jodełka – great and dark Polish crime, a lot o strong women, not necessarily all good ones for once
46. Not Working – Lisa Owens (r) – a light summer read, about how ‘not working’ is no fun, even if we quit the job to find ourselves
45. Hot Milk -Deborah Levy (r) – great and deep summer read about mother-daughter relationship
