New Releases for July

Happy Independence Day! We are halfway through 2014. Can you believe it?? My kids’ summer vacation has flown by, but we are certainly making the best of it. Today marks our country’s 238th birthday! Hooray! Happy birthday, America We are celebrating it with a cookout and sparklers at our house. What are your plans to celebrate the holiday today? Do share!

And it’s time for July’s new releases! I’m currently reading two books: Who’s Buried in Grant’s Tomb?: A Tour of Presidential Gravesites by Brian Lamb (not a July book), and The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick (a July book). The first has me fascinated and the second has me entertained. Both are great books! I’m looking forward to reading Then Cam You by Jill Shalvis, The Game and the Governess by Kate Noble, and Straddling the Line by Jaci Burton.

Which July releases have you read? Of those, which ones do you recommend? Which ones are you most looking forward to reading? Tell us and one lucky commenter will win a random book from my prize stash!


Until August, happy reading!
