what i read in july 2020

July was a light reading month for me! I spent a lot of time working on my book edits and that ate into my reading time. I also had a hard time getting into some of the books I read, which lead me to taking more time to finish!

What I Read in July 2020

Rodham – 3 stars

Man oh man I wanted to love this SO MUCH. American Wife is one of my all-time favorite books and I was so excited to read this one. The story follows Hillary from law school through life and is a tale of what would have happened if she didn’t marry Bill Clinton. I actually started out loving it, as odd as it was to read some of the scenes (ha!), but I didn’t love how it went on. It just seemed odd that parts of her life were left out and changed while some remained the same. I mean, I know it’s fiction so I didn’t expect it to be spot on, but it just wasn’t a huge hit for me. Would love to know your thoughts on this one!

Hello Summer – 3.5 stars

I’m telling you, I had a weird reading month. I love MKA books but this took me forever to get in to. The story follows a reported who ends up back in her hometown and tries to solve a mystery. I felt like the story was all over the place for so much of it. I wasn’t invested until at least halfway though and I found the main character and her sister to be so unlikable. I don’t know why! Now that I just complained, I DID like the book as it went on. I wasn’t totally satisfied with the ending but of course, enjoyed the love story!

The Boyfriend Project – 3.5 stars

Another one that I just liked. The main character ends a crappy relationship and becomes friends with the other women who were also duped. Again, I had such a hard time getting invested here. I love the friendship and did love the main character of this story so much though. I was a little torn on the love story (some of it seemed outlandish!) but ultimately did like the ending. Liked, not loved. It’s a good quick read!

Party of Two – 5 stars

This was our July book pick and I loved it so much! The story follows a lawyer who opens a new practice with her best friend and at the same time, meets a politician. Their chemistry is so good. I loved them as a couple and even through the twist at the end, was rooting for them. Definitely a lighthearted happy read that also has depth and significance!

How to Be An AntiRacist

Technically I listed to this one on audible, which a lot of times is my preferred way of listening to a nonfiction book! So far, this has definitely been the most informative book I’ve read on anti-racism and again, really opened my eyes. Definitely recommend it!
