It’s the second half of the year. In July, I got back to reading some awesome picture books, as well as an audiobook, a book I picked up at a writers festival three years ago, and a chapter book.
How to Make an Avocado Fly by Mikayla White was the first book on my list, followed by Mama’s Honest ABCs by Heidi Sharrard & Nellie Hutchinson and Splats by Simon Crack. These were all great picture books that I recommend you look up. Splats would be a great one for writers to get some inspiration for stories.
I finished reading All That Happened at Number 26 by Denise Scott. I bought this after hearing her speak at a writers festival three years ago. This was a great read, some very funny moments, and an insight into the Melbourne comedy scene.
For an audiobook, I enjoyed The Lady with the Gun Asks the Questions by Kerry Greenwood, a collection of Phryne Fisher short stories. Some I recognised as inspiration for some of the stories in the TV series.
To finish off the month, I read The Adventures of Eddie and Flip Boy by Bobby Holland Hanton. It was okay, but not on my must-read list.
I have started another audiobook, the second Magical Misfits book by Neil Patrick Harris, and I found The Last Quarter by Nicki Edwards when I was doing some tidying up, and started reading that one too.
How was your reading during July?
