The Grove - John Rector

Date Started: 7/30/12
Date Finished: 7/31/12

Ok, it's confession time. I started this blog to keep track of the books that I've read. The great thing about the blog is that it really does help me keep track of all of the books I've read, and remember more details about them than I otherwise would. The bad thing is that I can now compare how many books I've read year to year. And what I realized this month was that I am pretty far behind where I was last year. Not that it is some kind of competition with myself, but still. I think it's because of the Russian literature I started the year off with, but who knows. The Paris Reviews have also been quite long. In any case, I wanted a book I could get through quickly and based on the amazon reviews, this one looked like it fit the bill. So chalk another one up for July.

Wow. Ok, so I'm not a big fantasy reader, but I've been wanting to start this series for a while and definitely wanted to read it before watching any of the HBO series. And wow.

Shadow of Night – Deborah Harkness

Date Started: July 10, 2012
Date Finished: July 16, 2012

Let me start by saying that I really liked this book. As previously mentioned, I LOVED the first book, “A Discovery of Witches,” and haven’t been this excited about a sequel in quite some time.

Sarah's Key - Tatiana de Rosnay

Date Started - 6/29/12
Date Finished -6/30/12

Not going to lie, I didn't think I would finish this one so quickly. I was kind of counting on it to hold me over until the sequel to A Discovery of Witches comes out. Oh well! This was a great quick read and one that I would definitely recommend.
