2017 July Bookmarks

*Bookmarks is an online book club hosted at Creative2xmom. Here we discuss the books we've read in the past month as well as the suggested reading. Our suggested reading for July was Paris for One & Other Stories by JoJo Moyes.

These are the books I read this month:

Gathering the Threads by Cindy Woodsmall-- See my review here.

What We Read With The Kids:

The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks--  We've never read this classic with the kids so we decided it was time.  My oldest, going into 7th grade, loved it and can't wait to read more in the series.  That's a win for me!  :-)

The Trumpet of the Swan by E. B. White--  This is one of my personal favorites.  I could read this one over and over again.  Not only is it a great classic, but it also speaks to the value of hard work, integrity, and loyalty, among other life lessons.

Our suggested reading for July was Paris for One & Other Stories by JoJo Moyes-- 
I was looking for a little summer read for the month of July and this one was perfect.  I picked it up from the library on a Friday and had read the entire thing by the end of the weekend.  Paris for One is the longest story obviously with several other short stories at the end.  My favorite was Paris for One about a young woman who discovers she's not as timid as she once believed and in the process sees a whole new world open up.  Great read for the lazy days of summer.

So what are your bookmarks this month?
