The Rest of July's Reads

July was a good month where reading was concerned. It felt really great to get back on track with my regular reading rate.

Here's how I finished out the month.

Y'all have you heard about The Room? If you haven't, this book will make zero sense. If you have, this book is an essential read. Also, if you're in the former category, go watch the movie (widely regarded as the legit worst movie there is, but in a "THIS IS HILARIOUS!" kind of way), read the book, and let's chat. Now that we've covered that. The Disaster Artist is actually a James Franco movie due out later this year. The trailer came out last week, and y'all, it's going to be great. The book is a fascinating look into the making of the movie, the quirks of Tommy Wiseau, and just everything in between.

Emma In The Night was an ARC I received awhile ago. It was good. I'm not always a fan of unreliable narrators which this book had. I find myself reading just because I need to know what the heck is happening. The good piece of that is this one kept me reading. If unconventional mysteries are your thing, you'll dig this book.

I already talked about Get Your Sh*t Together here. I'd reiterate here that it's a worthwhile read.

Approval Junkie was a book I wanted based on title alone. It's also a good read that makes you think, "I'm so glad it's not just me." It's pretty obvious in these parts that approval is something I struggle with myself. I really liked the way this book talked about the topic. It was more memoir than life advice. It was a good, thought-provoking read. Also, it make me cry and laugh which I generally appreciate. Oh, and bonus, it's another free read from Blogging for Books.

Counting by 7s is a children's book, and y'all, it's FANTASTIC. I absolutely loved the characters. It's a unique story in both plot and characters, and it's just so, SO wonderful. I can't even delve into it here because y'all need to stop reading here and go read this book.

Onto my August reads. . .
