I love to read but I literally never get to do it or I guess I should say I never make time for it. When I do get time it’s typically before I fall asleep and the reading just helps me to fall asleep, so needless to say, I never get into the book. Listening to audiobooks if they are self help or some similar type of book is great, in fact I prefer it, but novels I need to read for myself. It’s so enjoyable imagining the characters and their voices in my own head. All this to say, I am really trying to get into reading more regularly again. If you are looking for a new book, these are the books hopping off the shelf for July’s reads.
I heard about this book after the release of Hamilton on Disney+. I was nerding out and watching interviews with the cast and Lin-Manuel mentioned his book. Honestly I JUST got it in the mail so I haven’t had a complete dive but it is more of the type of book you read each day as inspiration. Upon opening the book it reminded me of reading a Shel Silverstein book and I am a big Shel fan. Many of his poems were committed to memory when I was kid and he was my inspiration for a lot of the poetry I have written. Seeing this reminder of classics I love got me really excited to read this book even more. I’ve only read the intro and first poem but I can tell I’m gonna love it.
Disney Devotionals: 100 Daily Devotionals Based on the Walt Disney World Attractions by Albert Thweatt
I had to sneak a Disney book in here! This book was recently brought to my attention by Denysha of imagineermom on Instagram. I enjoy reading devotionals and what better than Disney themed ones! These devotionals are based around rides at the parks. This is another book I just received and I am diving into. It does seem a bit wordy so I am interested to see how quickly it grabs my attention but I am looking forward to these two themes coming together.
I believe it was Ghenet of ghenetactually on IG that listed this book. On my recent trip to Lake Sebago I dove into this book while boating through the lake and if there is one thing I love, it’s a book that’s writing captures me right from the start. I love when I don’t have to wait to get into it and that’s how this book is. I haven’t finished it yet but so far the store is interesting and intriguing and I am super interested to see where it goes.
Those are my three books for July’s reads! What new adventure stories are you diving into this month? Share some of your favorites so I can check them out and I will be sure to update you on these books and share my reviews.
