Monthly Musings – July 2015

MonthlyMusingsThis is a where I look back at what I read (or tried to read) during the past month. I also plan on highlighting my experiences in any book club reads I from the month as well. I will always start with any books I would label as a surprise find/under-read books so if anyone missed my reviews for them, and don’t make it to the end of this post, they’ll be easy to find.


July was a busy reading month for me. I had a week all to myself when my husband took our boys to visit his family (he gets more vacation than I do … boo!) But, it was nice and relaxing. I really read way more books than is typical, so that is always great!

I’ve also been working on a side project, previously secret, but now that I have people signed on to participate, it IS happening, so I’ll fill you in on at least the basic details. I will be launching a new website for The Speculative Herald, which will be a collaborative effort focusing on news and reviews for the most recent and upcoming speculative fiction. Tenacious Reader is not going away! It’s just in addition to this (because I must have copious amounts of free time on my hands I needed to figure out what to do with … ha!) 🙂 There is still a good bit of work to do for it, but I am in the process of getting the website designed, and organizing how it is going to work. Sound like something you’re interested in? Want to keep up to date?

Come follow us on twitter: @SpecHerald

The twitter account is pretty quiet (silent?) right now, but that will change as we make more progress.


Highlighted Read from July – Time Salvager by Wesley Chu

Why? Because it’s fun. And exciting. And different. You should read it.











Review Summary [July]

 July Backlist Burndown

For July, I read My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland. It was different and fun, a nice change of pace for me.

    1. Thanks, I challenged myself to make a dragon into an S, it didn’t turn out too bad 🙂 And I had really hoped to read The Fifth House of the Heart by now, and all these glowing reviews are not helping! I must catch up! And, I have checked for an audiobook, but unfortunately, have not found one.
