July Reading List


It’s July. You know, in case you weren’t already aware of that.

I’ve now been at my new job for over a month, and even though I love it, it is definitely cutting into my reading (and blogging) time. I think I’m doing fairly well, though I am disappointed I had to but down the number of posts I do each week. I do have high hopes of reading a lot this month, but I don’t know what’s actually going to happen, so I’m keeping this list very short.

Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. I finally jumped into this book about a week ago, but I would really like to finish it this month. It is a beast. But, thankfully, not all that dry for a historical biography, so I am enjoying it a lot.

Moving Kings by Joshua Cohen. Another book I’ve already started, and I like it so far. It’s about two Israeli ex-soldiers who move to the US and end up becoming eviction movers. Probably not something I’d pick up on my own, to be honest, but I have been wanting to read more books with Middle Eastern characters and I’m excited to see what happens with the story. Thanks to Random House for sending me a copy! I’m planning on having a review up before this comes out on July 11, so be sure to check back before then if you’re interested!

Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore. I am so excited about this book, which is described as Neil Gaiman meets Kurt Vonnegut. I mean, really, I would have read it just based on that. But I am very intrigued by story, which is about a man searching for the secret to immortality so he can be with his beloved, the incarnation of Death.

See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt. I’ve already started reading this book too (because two isn’t enough), and I’m enjoying it so far! It’s a novel all about Lizzie Borden and the Borden murders. I’ve been intrigued by Lizzie Borden for years, and I’m excited to read a different take on what happened (which is still a mystery).

Hopefully I will read more than just four books, but I’m not quite sure what I’m in the mood for yet, so I’m giving myself a bit of wiggle room (which is really what works best for me with these monthly TBRs).

What are you planning on reading this month? Are there any new releases you’re excited about? Have you read any of the books on my list?

  1. I’m in the wierd position of being on vacation but also having a ton of reading to do for next year. As such, I’m reading a menagerie of non-fiction stuff (for my own interest) and early medieval sagas (for uni). Reincarnation Blues sounds fascinating, as is anything touched by Neil Gaiman.

    1. I miss having summer breaks to read as much as I want. (I’m currently sneaking in ebooks at my desk at work haha.) Good luck with your unit reading! I love medieval literature. What are you reading now?
