Monthly Summary: July 2018

Welcome to another Monthly Summary on Pages and Tea.

Summer is still here, it’s still warming up, and I’d probably like it a little cooler right now if I’m honest. Still, there have been many opportunities for outdoor reading again, which I’m really enjoying.

July has been a mixed month of reading. I even managed to finally read some non-fiction, which is very rare.
I became utterly charmed by the character of Count Rostov in A Gentleman in Moscow. This book was so good that it was a very hard act to follow. I’m still thinking about it now, and I’d definitely re-read it. I believe there are plans for a tv series too, so that’s going to be something to look out for.
I ventured into the non-fic world of books, or more specifically love letter and break up notes from a librarian to her books, which was intriguing. It made me ponder on the books that I would write such notes to, and what I would say.
Things took a murderous turn from that point on in two very different ways as I sampled Social Creature, in which social media keeps someone alive, and A Talent for Murder, in which an evil man wanted crime novelist Agatha Christie to commit murder on his behalf.

Aside from all this reading, the blog has actually been quite quiet during July. I’ve posted a couple of reviews, participated in Top Ten Tuesday, but that’s been about it. Here’s an update…
