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?
