Top Ten Tuesday (Freebie): My favorite books from the past 10 Julys

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week is a freebie week, where we each pick our own topic. I guess I was feeling nostalgic — I decided to write about the best books I read in July of each of the past 10 years.

In some cases, it was hard to pick just one — but I whittled down my choices by looking for books I’d rated 5 stars, and where there was more than one, just went with the one I have the best memories of!

Here are my favorite books read in July, 2012 – 2021:

2021: Flash Fire by TJ Klune

2020: Time After Time by Lisa Grunwald

2019: Ellie and the Harp Maker by Hazel Prior

2018: Scythe by Neal Shusterman

2017: Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen by Mary Norris

2016: Agent to the Stars by John Scalzi

2015: Alex + Ada (3 volumes) by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn

2014: The Curiosity by Stephen P. Kiernan

2013: Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel

2012: Fables (volumes 1 – 10) by Bill Willingham

Looks like my July reading is really all over the place, although I notice that for two of these years, I was immersed in graphic novels over the summer (and really, that could have been three — there was one year where I read tons of Walking Dead volumes in July, but had other books that ranked higher for me).

Putting together a retrospective of the last 10 years was actually quite fun. Do you have any stand-out July books in your reading past?

  1. Ya know, Schusterman wrote another amazing book, and he did such a good job it won the National Book Award, and you already own it, and it’s still July 😉😉😉
