What I Read in July 2021
July wasn’t the best reading month for me. I only managed to read three books in total, but together they equaled over 1,000 pages. So that’s still a lot of words.
Next month, to get my reading goal up, I’m doing another 30 Day Book Challenge, so let’s see how this goes.
Here is what I managed to read in July 2021.
Yes, I’m obsessed. I started yet another Julia Quinn series. This time following the Smythe-Smith family, who are another family in the ton that features the Bridgerton family. This one was very dramatic and sweet with an enemies to lovers trope. Loved it.
I’m a big fan of Daphne Du Maurier. Rebecca was one of my favourite reads as a teenager. So when I discovered there was a memoir about Daphne’s process as he wrote Rebecca, I jumped on it. It wasn’t everything I was hoping for – it mostly consisted of an alternative ending for Rebecca and then some essays that Daphne wrote about her family.
Part of my Bookish Resolutions for 2021 was to read ten books over 700 pages, and this was a big part of that goal. And I managed it. Last year I read David Copperfield by Charles Dickens and really enjoyed it, and I decided to follow it up in 2021 with Bleak House. This was one of my favourite BBC adaptations of Charles Dickens’ novels so I was looking forward to reading the book and it wasn’t bad. I preferred David Copperfield, but this wasn’t bad.
