Comments for July 2010 in Review
July in Review: 07/31/10
In July I read 33 books and reviewed 35 I had finished in previous months. I also reskinned my website.
In terms of my ROOB score, July was my "worst" month since I started keeping track. It was only -2.5. That score reflects the large number of library books I read.
Review wise, it was a great month with 2/3s of the books earning a 4 or a 5. I didn't review any non-fiction this month. The vast majority of the books and stories reviewed fall into three categories: picture books, tween fiction and science fiction.

Wow! You did so well. I read only 7 books.

One of these months I should just force myself to slow down so I can catch up on my reviews.

I watched the movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, but didn't read the book. The Maze Runner is definitely one I want to read!

The book is a delightful and quick read. There's also a sequel, Pickles to Pittsburgh that I haven't had the chance to read yet.

Wow, I'm impressed! I haven't hardly read a thing since last fall. Six or seven books, give or take a few...too much going on. Hopefully, I will be able to get back into the swing of things very soon. Happy Reading!

I suspect my reading rate will drop once school starts. I'll be too busy with homework and assigned reading.

Congratulations on an incredibly productive month! Way to go!

Thanks except now I'm facing an even longer list of books to review. At the start of the year I was at 100 reviews to write. Now I'm approaching 200. I just can't keep up.

What a great reading list. You have done well!
Love your pie charts :) Fantastic idea splitting up genres like that.

Thank you. When I started posting the end of the month list of books I had people asking me what the breakdown of genres was. So I started making the pie charts.

33?!?! You're not human. Well done, Sarah!

I'm human. I just read fast.
