July 2017 Wrap-Up + Book Haul

WWU18

Goodbye July, and hello August!

I cannot believe how quickly this summer is flying by.  One minute my kids are getting out of school for summer break, and the next I am gathering lists for back to school shopping!  July was a crazy month for me, but despite all the craziness I did manage to read 9 books & get a good amount of blogging done!  Yay for productivity!  My biggest news this month is that we bought a new house.  Unfortunately this isn’t a simple move… we are completely renovating the house over the next few months before we move in.  My husband flips homes for a living, and assures me that he can get this done in 2 months.  I’m not holding my breath lol  My goal is to move in before Christmas.  Please send me good vibes for my sanity throughout this process 🙂

Let’s see what I got accomplished in July, shall we?

Book Review: Before the Fall by Noah Hawley

BeforetheFallCov

When a fellow member in my book club suggested we read Before the Fall for our book of the month, I jumped at the opportunity & quickly seconded the notion.  Why yes, I did need to read it anyways because it was on my NetGalley eARC TBR list, therefore I already had a copy… Ok, I was killing two birds with one stone, but can you blame me?
