July 2014 Recap

Summer is more than halfway over.  Too weird.  We’re into August, which means it’s time for a look back at July.

Reading:

Best Book of the Month: The Fever by Megan Abbott

Books Read: 19
Adult: 8
YA:  11
MG: 0
Children’s: 0
Fiction: 18
Non-fiction/Memoir: 1
Graphic Novel: 3
# of Pages Read: 4204, plus 2 audiobooks

Thoughts on July’s Reading:

  • Only one non-fiction title this month, and I actually think it was more fiction than not.
  • I’m in a pretty serious reading slump right now, in that nothing I’m reading is catching me the way I want it to.  It’s disappointing, but usually the only way out of it is through it, so I’ll keep plugging away.

Watching:

TV:

Much as I’d like to, I’m not obsessively tracking what TV show episodes I watch and when.  So this will be mostly bullet points.

  • It’s pretty much all Gilmore Girls all the time right now.  A few episodes of House have slipped in, since J. is doing a rewatch of that..
  • Other weekly staples for me include my love-hate relationship with Switched at Birth and The Fosters.

Movies:

happy christmasBest Movie(s) of the Month: Happy Christmas

Movies Watched: 12
New: 3
Re-Watch: 9
Theater Trips: 0

  • No theater trips in July.  I’ll have to fix that this month.
  • Happy Christmas was the winner by far this month, but I also enjoyed some of my re-watches, most notably Whip It!

Goals for July:

  • Continue reading and watching diverse things.  Keep up with keeping track.  Try to squeeze in a few more movies.  Find a book I love this month, which didn’t really happen this past one.
