Summer Reading List Update for July

The month of July has been a great one for lit.  I've read so many good books.  It's like the good book fairies are somewhere raining down great stories just for me.  So let's go over what I've read this month.

What I Said I Would Read
32 Candles by Ernessa T. Carter - Loved it!
The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives by Lola Shoneyin - Loved it!
A Taste of Honey: Stories by Jabari Asim - Loved it!
Under the Dome by Stephen King - Sitting on the floor mocking me
The Sacred Place by Daniel Black - Meh
The Gettin Place by Susan Straight - Sitting on the floor mocking me
Blacker Than A Thousand Midnights by Susan Straight - Sitting on the floor mocking me
Red Hats by Damon Wayans - Meh
Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls - Too serious for summer
Eddie Signwriter by Adam Schwartzman - Couldn't get into it
Confessions of A Prep School Mommy Handler by Wade Rouse - Couldn't get into it

These weren't on my list, but the book fairy sent them my way.

Address: House of Corrections by Monice Mitchell Simms - Loved it!
Searching for Tina Turner by Jacqueline Luckett - Twas aight
Platinum by Aliya S. King - Twas aight
Substitute Me by Lori L. Tharps - Loved it!

See what I mean? I'm not committing myself to any particular books for August.  I've got a stack of ARCs and library books mocking me from the bedroom to the living room.  My goal is to keep the subject matter light.

What did you read this month? What's on your list for August?
