Reading Wrap-up For July at Moonshine and Rosefire

Hello everyone out there and I hope that you all had a terrific reading month for yourselves. I am known as Rosefire around the Internet and this is my new personal reading blog. I originally posted my reviews over at my daughter's blog, Emeraldfire's Bookmark but am now in the process of transferring them all over to my own blog. My daughter makes blogging look like so much fun that I thought that I would try it out for myself! :)

Anyway, I started out July with 945 unread books lying around the house and ended the month with 940 books unread. All the books that I acquired this month came from Paperback Swap and authors.

Let me try to break down the influx for you:

Read from my TBR pile (Yes! I am a reading machine :))
- The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory
- The Merry-Hearted Boys: Liam Clancy, the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem by Ronald L. Leonard
- My Name is Mary Sutter: A Novel by Robin Oliveira
- The Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck
- Once in a Blue Moon by Eileen Goudge

Added to my TBR pile (oh well, you win some and you lose some! Not too bad though, I suppose:))
- The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory
- Brood X: A Firsthand Account of the Great Cicada Invasion by Michael Phillip Cash
- The Hanging Tree: A Novella by Michael Phillip Cash
- Keep Calm and Ask On: A No-Nonsense Guide to Fulfilling Your Dreams by Michael Samuels

Taken off my TBR pile and sent to a new home (Yay! Happy Dance! :))  
- Katie: The Real Story by Edward Klein
- The Day of the Storm by Rosamunde Pilcher
Stillwell: A Haunting on Long Island by Michael Phillip Cash
- The Stars Shine Down by Sidney Sheldon
- Capital Crimes by Lawrence Sanders
- Memories of Midnight by Sidney Sheldon
- Up Island by Anne Rivers Siddons
- The Wild by Whitley Strieber
- Fairoaks by Frank Yerby
- A Case of Need by Michael Crichton
- The Chamber by John Grisham
- The Rainmaker by John Grisham
- The Summons by John Grisham
- Heat by Arthur Herzog
- The Clinic by Jonathan Kellerman
- Hide and Seek by James Patterson
- Degree of Guilt by Richard North Patterson
- The Sands of Time by Sidney Sheldon
- Copy Kat by Karen Kijewski

Well, there it is...the breakdown! All in all, a very good reading month for me. Here's a further breakdown:

Books Read: 5
Pages Read: 1,753
Grade Range: A+! to A!

So, there you go! The reading month that was July. I hope that you all had an equally good reading month; if not a little better. :) See you all next month! :)

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
