I managed to read 8 books this month. I have been somewhat in a reading slump lately so I was very happy with this number. Hopefully July will continue to be a great reading month.
The books I read this month were:
The Cabin by Natasha Preston ★★★☆☆
The Thousandth Floor by Katherine McGee ★★★☆☆
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab ★★★★☆
Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi ★★★★☆
The Tent by Margaret Atwood ★★★★☆
The Fever by Megan Abbott ★★★☆☆
Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger ★★★★☆
Love by Toni Morrison ★★★★☆
My favorite book this month was Love by Toni Morrison. Surprisingly, it was my first Toni Morrison novel ever. While I know it is shorter and not as dark as her first works, I thought it was a very touching portray of how corrupted and cruel love can be. It is a story woven with the intricacies of family, racial tension, and abuse that comes together with heartbreaking intensity. I am definitely planning to pick up more Morrison’s work.
Currently, I am reading The Little Friend by Donna Tartt.
