Summer Book Trek! How many books can you ready in July?

My writing has been off. I mean, really off. As in I haven't wanted to write or edit. My muse has abandoned me. This is what happens when a writer sends out full manuscripts with the hope of it finding a home and then the dream is dashed. But I keep submitting. What else am I going to do? 
Submit and read.
That's what I've been doing for the last two months. Submit and read.
So I'm going to take the Summer Book Trek challenge and read some more books in July. And now that I've actually set that goal, my muse is going to show up at the front door and I won't want to read. 
On to happier topics. 

Karlene is running her annual Summer Book Trek. Here is the link if you want to join and win books!

My July reading list:

The Princess Sisters by Stacy Lynn Carrol
All Fall Down by Julie Bellon
The Kindling by Braden Bell
Paranoia by J.R. Johanssen

I do have other books ready to go for July but I don't think any of the authors are LDS (mostly from netgalley):

The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O'Brien
Shadows by Paula Weston
The City by Dean Koontz
Hopeless by Coleen Hoover  yuck

What books are you going to read in July?

I'm going to read Mambo in Chinatown by Jean Kwok; I finished her other book, Girl in Translation, in less than three days because it was so good. I do need to read more books; I always end up feeling cranky and bored when I don't read enough.

Nice goal! Hmmmm..... I started three non-fictions. Maybe I'll finish those. THE WAY WE LEARN, EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE 2.0, and SAVE THE CAT GOES TO THE MOVIES. But sometimes I don't have a ton of endurance when it comes to NF, so you're not going to hold me to this, right? No flaming bags of dog poop on my doorstep if I don't meet my goal?

If so, I'll add ROAD TO SOMEWHERE by Kelley Lynn & Jenny Morris, and a critique.

If not, well.... then.... let's just say that I know where you live too. ;)

All those books sound interesting! I'll have to look them up. I don't read NF very quickly either. YA is the genre I like! And anything Peggy Eddleman writes. ;)

Good list. Happy reading!
