Monthly Review – July 2013

Posted July 31, 2013 by Michael @ Knowledge Lost in Monthly Reading / 0 Comments

This month we looked at the satirical novel and read Kurt Vonnegut’s modern classic Cat’s Cradle. This was a lot of fun for me; even though I’ve read the novel, I’m becoming a big fan of Juvenalian satire. While it might have been a little difficult for others, it is always great to go out of our comfort zones and read something great. Next month we are dipping into some non-fiction when we read Death in the Afternoon by Ernest Hemingway, considered one of the best books ever written about bullfighting.

My wife has been away for almost three weeks and in that time I thought I might have gotten a lot of reading done, but sadly this was not the case. I’ve done pretty well for myself but nothing amazing, it seems like a regular month for me; reading wise. The biggest highlight for the month would have to be A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra but I did hit rock bottom as well and read Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I would love to know what your highlights or lowlights of the month were and even what you read this month.

    I’ve never read Vonnegut, but I intend to remedy that soon with my brand-spankin’-new copy of Galapagos. And I own Slaughterhouse, but I’ve put it off for years. Looks like a good month of reading. Several of these are on my TBR or wishlist.

  2. Great choices there! I’ve read Z and have a few more of those on my TBR (not Twilight though… hehehe!)

    My husband has been away for 6 weeks (2 to go…) and I thought I would have read a ton as well, but I’m surprised it’s been less than I expected, too. Huh.
