July: What I Read

13. Behind Every Lie by Christina McDonald: This is a perfectly nice thriller, and I read it one single pool visit. It's just not remarkable.

12. The Last Resort by Marissa Stapely: Exact same review as above.

11. Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me by Adreinne Brodeur: Meh. I wanted to like this, but it is always so hard for me to feel sorry for someone with so many advantages.

10. These Women by Ivy Pochoda: Dude. This is a Good Book, but there were others on the list that I enjoyed reading more.

9. A Good Marriage by Kimberly McCreight: Not her best, but still a pretty good page-turning thriller.

8. Beach Read by Emily Henry: I heard GREAT things about this, but it was not my favorite.

7. I Was Told it Would Get Easier by Abbi Waxman: Such a fun, breezy read. She's great.

6. Sea Wife by Amity Gaige: THIS IS SO GOOD-- total page-turner and the kind of unlikable people I actually like.

5. We Wish You Luck by Caroline Zancan: LOVED this book about a low-residency creative writing MFA.

4. All Adults Here by Emma Straub: I am a Straub fan, and this one did not disappoint.

3. A Good Neighborhood by Therese Anne Fowler: THIS IS WONDERFUL and so, so, so sad.

2. Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano: YES YES YES. This is devastating.

1. Rodham by Curtis Sittenfeld: So, I preordered this and got it the day it came out and then just stared at it for over  a month. I was worried that it could not possibly be good. BUT IT IS WONDERFUL. Read it. The end. (And read American Wife if you haven't already).
