Best of the Bunch - July 2020

Have you read any good books this month? We have read many, many good books, which makes it difficult to name our favorite read. Because there are so many good reads we like to attempt to pick one, sometimes two or three, that we think was the best of the bunch that way if you are feeling overwhelmed by all the offerings you will know which books you might not want to miss. What book did you read this month that is your favorite?

Susan's Best of the Bunch

The Book of Lost Names
 solidifies Kristin Harmel's place as one of the top writers of historical fiction about strong women during WWII. I would give 10 stars to this book if I could. Her book is based on real people, and she ties that in with comprehensive research and gives her readers a fantastic book that won't soon be forgotten. Read my review.

MK's Best of the Bunch

There are a lot of good books that I read and reviewed in July. My favorite one is hard to pick, so I can't narrow it down. My theme for the month seems to be romance and fantasy, but the fantasy won out for the ones that really drew me in. Of Dragons, Feasts and Murder by Aliette de Bodard (my review), Shielded by KayLynn Flanders (my review), and Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson (my review) were my favorites. I was so drawn into the stories and the worlds within, I didn't want to put down the books and return to the real world! ~ MK

I, too, am having trouble choosing just one. I loved Mary Kay Andrews's beach read Hello, Summer (my review) and The Relentless Moon by Mary Robinette Kowal (my review) was one of my most anticipated books of 2020, but I think the book I was most surprised by was A Lab of One's Own: One Woman's Personal Journey Through Sexism in Science by Rita Colwell (my review). It was so interesting and eye-opening, and I had trouble putting it down. I think even people who don't really like science will find it interesting and learn about the history of women in science.
