July 2011 Wrap Up.

So, in lieu of doing a 'This Week's Read's post, I thought that I would just include it all in one wrap up post for the month of July!

July was actually a really good month for me.  I finished 11 books, which is much more than I usually finish, and I stayed on top of all of my reviews for the month, so everything is caught up!  This month I was kind of on a kick of young adult or children's books.  Actually its been that way for the last few months, but I think I'm coming out of it now.

Some of my favorites for the month were definitely in the Chronicles of Narnia series.  This will always be one of my favorites from my childhood.  They're just amazing stories and I know that they'll be stories that I read to my children a million times and I'll never get sick of them.  You can see my Series Reflection post about this series, where I summed up my feelings and why I love it so much.
Another book that I really enjoyed was The Neverending Story by Michael Ende.  Classic book that was made into one of my favorite childhood movies.  It was a pretty quick read as well.

I think I liked everything I read this month.  Except one book.  Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.  For whatever reason I couldn't get into that book to save my life.  But, that was the only book I didn't like for the month.

Here are the books that I reviewed for the month.  Click the titles to go to my review!
