July 2022 Round-Up

In July 2022, I read 23 books, attended one book launch at Gleebooks, and maintained my goals to read as many Australian authors as possible, and keep on top of my review books. It’s meant I’ve been able to read other things in between the review books, and have managed to finish everything I have started. There are few I didn’t review – like the Disney Twisted Tales, any quiz books that I get sporadically, and my books on writing craft. It has meant I am reading as diversely as I can, but I of course cannot read everything, so there will always be some things that I miss. So, that is my July reading, and now onto August!
