July Reading Rundown

My Favorite:

A few months back I wrote about The Historian, which I love and continues to be one of my favorite books I've read in 2013. This month it had real competition, The Art Forger. A beautiful story of a young struggling artist, searching for validation, interwoven with the story of the women who started the Boston Art Museum. It's one of those books that I can't tell you anything or I'll tell you everything and then you won't enjoy it when you read it. Yes, I said when, because you must read this book!

Honorable mention goes to Tuesday's at the Castle. Excellent book for young readers with a fierce female main character. I know at least one little girl who will be getting this book from me for Christmas this year!

I keep telling all of you what you should be reading. Now it's your turn, what should I be reading??

Totals: 49 (10)  1 more book to reach the 50 in 2013 goal!

  1. I will definitely be checking both of those out!

    I currently just started reading the Game of Thrones series (books the show, which I have never seen, was based off of) and just finished Born to Run. Born to Run is about the crazy things the human body is capable of (have you heard of Ultra Runners? Well, this book says how we are ALL capable of that. However, I haven't gotten up and run 80 miles today, but it was a good read). I also have been perusing different fabric books looking for my next project!
