Books Read in July

I can't believe that it's already July 12.  I hope you're finding some time to read!  Perhaps I'll see some of you at Island Celebration this weekend.

Try to read at least three books during the summer.  Post the book title, author, and your rating.  You might also want to include the genre.

Feel free to share your thoughts about the book, but remember you don't have to post a lengthy review.   You might choose to use a star rating system of 1 - 5 stars, with 5 stars being the best book you've ever read, and 1 star indicating that you didn't like the book.

If you have trouble commenting on this post, email your comments to me (, and I'll post them on the blog.

Happy reading!


  1. Although I have read many books already this summer, here are three that I enjoyed:
    Nature Girl, by Jane Kelley. I rate this book a 5 star. This book was both funny but serious plus it had great some hooking moments! I could definitely connect with it! I would recommend it to fourth graders but not any higher than eighth grade.

    Confessions of a Shopaholic, by Sophie Kinsella. I rate this book a 4 star. I thought this book was realistic fiction. This book was very funny and crazy. I learned a lot about money and everyday life. I didn’t like some of the parts because of how dramatic they were, but other then that I liked the book.

    The Candy Makers, by Wendy Mass. I rate this book a 3 star. If your looking for a candy coated mystery this book is for you. The only thing was that it was very difficult to follow. But it had amazing details and mouthwatering surprises!

    1. Sophia, thanks for being our first participant for this summer! I changed a setting on the blog, so that hopefully more people can post the books they are reading. I'm putting Nature Girl on my WTR (want to read) list.
