July, or the suckiest month


July sucked and I don't want to talk about it or think about it anymore.

Which is GOOD NEWS because I'm doing a Short Stack Speed Round!


A Stash of One's Own edited by Clara Parkes

Do you like yarn? Do you hoard yarn? Read this. You will find your people and also judge people who somehow don't keep their favorite fibers in the house. Also it's apparently a feminist act to take up space with your hobby, so there.

Literary Witches by Taisia Kitaiskaia, illustrations by Katy Horan

Great illustrations. Witchy references. References a ridiculous amount of books you'll want to read after finishing this.


This just didn't happen this month.


Dietland by Sarai Walker

Women are deservedly angry, fight back. Somehow even more relevant than when it was published in 2015.

Best of the Rest:

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Did you think Harry and Draco had a ton of sexual chemistry and that Draco might be a vampire? This is for you.

Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean

Sexy good smuggler Devil wants to wreck his brother's life, tries to use locksmith spinster with scandalous past to do it. They totally fall for each other. Couldn't read this one in public because I spent a very large amount of time blushing.

The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant

Like a very long, good phone call with your Jewish grandmother, provided you like(d) her. I miss my grandma. We'd do crosswords over the phone together.

Sadie by Courtney Summers

COMING SEPTEMBER 4TH. A mix of the Serial podcast and Winter's Bone. Sadie runs away to find a man from her past who probably murdered her sister, uncovers a lot of other horrible realities. Still plans on murdering that guy.

And with that, I wash my hands of July.
