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 865 unread books lying around the house and ended the month with 860 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

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:))
