July Wrap Up Post

July Wrap up   This post is just about the books that I read and reviewed in July and I will also check in on my progress and see how I did with my July TBR from June. I will be doing a separate post for my August TBR because I am participating in two August events for review books. (Review copy cleanup and netgalley knockout!)   Personal note for July: This month was a good reading month for me. I have gotten in the swing of my job (right in time for summer to be over) and I was able to get a lot of reading done. I only have 2 weeks left in my summer job (including this week) and I am really sad to be leaving. I have worked with some of the best attorneys in the practice area (in my opinion anyway) and they have been the best mentors I could ever ask for. I am eternally grateful for everything they have done for me.  … Read more »

This meme is where people talk about the books they have read last week, the books they are currently reading this week, and what they hope to read next up.
