Books read in July


Books read in July!
Hey! More Lucy Knisley comics - this time Displacement which is about going on a cruise with her grandparents. It's pretty cute. I loved the Bryan Lee O'Malley graphic novel Seconds - all about having another go round at life events so you can change them by eating magic mushrooms. Skim was another graphic novel that was totally fun and also about witchcraft. 

Yoga and the Quest for the True Self by Stephen Cope was great - probably only if you are interested in yoga though....

The new Harper Lee was pretty big news huh? I enjoyed it, but found it more of an interesting addition to To Kill a Mockingbird, rather than a great book in its own right.

Among Others by Jo Walton was a re-read for me as we were reading it for book group. I really love this book - it's kinda fantasy, but only slightly... It's also about the power of reading. It's really wonderful.

The Sally Mann book called Hold Still is great - it's a memoir about her life as a photographer (you may remember her photos from the 90s of her kids? There was a bit of a hoo-ha around them as her kids were naked for many of them) and it's beautifully written all about love, life, family, art (Cy Twombly appears in it) all wrapped up in a touch of southern gothic, a great read even if you've never heard of her.

And These Broken Stars was a teen sci-fi novel which I was totally captivated by! Set in space! And then a strange planet! Wah!

You read any of these?
