July 2016 in Retrospect

July has been a month of heat waves and vet bills, neither of which have been particularly pleasant. But it hasn’t been entirely bad, either. There’ve been some highlights, like my roommate and I starting a YouTube channel together, and working on embroidery projects, and other little things that keep me in check. But it has been difficult. Let’s just say that I’m not sad to see the middle summer month coming to an end.

SPFBO Review: The Narrowing Path, by David J Normoyle

I may have only reviewed 4 books, but I read 7, which I’m counting as impressive considering all the other stuff going on, plus the heat sapping my energy and will to do anything more complicated than lie on the floor and melt into an unpleasant puddle.

I looked at some of July’s SFF releases that had caught my attention. That’s pretty much it, really.

Next month

I’ve got a couple of regular reviews due, but I want to spend August focusing more on SPFBO books. With luck, maybe I can get 3 read and reviewed, and that should almost catch me up to where I probably ought to be by this point. It’s been slow going this year, for a variety of reasons, but I’m still committed. Just be patient and bear with me while I sort stuff out.
