July 2012 Reading Wrap-Up

Well, the girls are here! They made their appearance on Monday, July 9th, so unsurprisingly I didn’t read quite as much as most months. Even so, I’m actually still pretty impressed with the number of books I read (although I wish I’d done a better job getting to audiobooks). I read a total of 12 books: 9 in print or ebook for a total of just under 3000 pages and 3 in audio for a total of about 30 hours.

What I Reviewed:

Bring up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel, narrated by Simon Vance
The Red House by Mark Haddon, narrated by Maxwell Caulfield
