My July 2018 Reading List

Welcome to July, reader friends!

I hope June treated you with all the fabulousness you deserve. I’d say I hope your summer is going splendidly so far, but I know I’ve got some readers who are in the middle of winter right now. So, cheers to you all, and I hope whatever season you’re having is as lovely as it can be!

Now…I don’t know if you’ve seen, but July is going to be a seriously busy month around the J. E. Martin Books headquarters. It might or might not have something to do with the upcoming release of this beauty:


Yep, I’m 100% thrilled about having another *Release Day* coming up so soon–but I’m also 100% packed schedule-wise because of it. I’m figuring the likelihood of getting significant reading done is pretty low.

So, what’s the obvious thing to do?

Catch up on my increasingly long backlog of partial reads! More about that in a minute. First, a recap of June.


  1. Meet Clara Andrews by Lacey London – free on Amazon
  2. Making Choices by Kylie Hillman
  3. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
  4. Bossypants by Tina Fey
**Please note that anywhere I’ve listed free/Kindle Unlimited availability is accurate at the time of this post, but may not reflect current status or offers if you’re reading this at a later date**

My ratings and/or reviews for the books I finished are up on Goodreads. Go check them out and add or rate The Black Wolf Series while you’re there. The Broken Wolf Goodreads page is live, too, so give it a peek while you’re at it ❤️

I know this little spot is usually devoted to the books I didn’t finish – but I’m skipping it this time in favor of adding them in the normal To Be Read spot below.

So, here’s what July looks like!


No surprises here, really. I’m gonna do what I do and hope I can get at least a few of these knocked off my list. I’m actually thinking I might hold the Truby book for another month because I’ll be starting outlining for Book Five soon. Yeah, I just said that (eek!!)!

  1. The Anatomy of Story: 22 Steps to Becoming a Master Storyteller by John Truby
  2. The Republican War Against Women by Tanya Melich
  3. The BadRedhead Media 30-Day Book Marketing Challenge by Rachel Thompson
  4. What’s the Matter With Kansas by Thomas Frank
  5. A Writer’s Guide to Active Setting by Mary Buckham 

Wish me luck on getting through some of these more cumbersome reads in July as I have time. And I wish you all the best on whatever books you’ve got on your shelf this month! Feel free to comment below and tell me all about them!

And, of course, be sure to check back in on the 10th to celebrate the Broken Wolf release with me or join my mailing list to receive a celebratory email that day!
