What I Read in July

Wow, packing and moving really hurt my reading list last month. I only managed to finish two books; that's really bad for me! Although, I am currently reading The Other Boleyn Girl and it has taken me forever to get through it, I actually started it right before we moved - so I've been reading it for over two weeks now. But I did manage to read two good books last month:

Such a Pretty Fat: One Narcissist's Quest to Discover if Her Life Makes Her Ass Look Big, or Why Pie is Not the Answer - by Jen Lancaster. Not my favorite of her books, but still very good. You can read my review here.

The Duggars: 20 and Counting!: Raising One of America's Largest Families - How They Do It - By Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. Yes, those Duggars. The ones from TLC. I actually really liked this book. I didn't think that I would. I put a hold on it at the library back in March after watching a Duggar marathon and didn't get it until July, so apparently I'm not the only fan! I figured that I'd just skim the book but I almost completely read it cover-to-cover. There were some great tips and ideas in it about money saving, moving, organizing, some incredible looking recipes, and even some good tips for raising kids (ok, right here let me say that I don't totally agree with the Duggar lifestyle and wouldn't raise my kids the way they do, but there are some good ideas here, especially for how to get you kids to enjoy quiet time). Overall this was a really good book, and a quick read too! I'm glad I read it.

Hopefully August will be better, if I can ever finish TOBG!
