I read 14 books in July, taking me to 108 books so far this year.
Here’s the breakdown of what I read:
Multiple Formats: 3
Lots of re-reads this month, some of which are books I have in multiple formats. (I have The Privilege of the Sword in trade paper, audio, and eBook format. So yay for giving Ellen Kushner all my money!)
As for the genres I was reading:
Lots of mysteries. Half the fantasy I read were also mysteries, and the one straight-up fantasy didn’t have a lick of fantasy or a single supernatural creature in it.
And these are the books I rated 8/10 or higher (7/10 is a good and enjoyable book, but nothing special):
Death at La Fenice
A Plague of Zombies
Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade
Lord John and the Hand of Devils
Lord John and the Private Matter
The Mammoth Book of Historical Crime Fiction
There you have it, July’s reading.
