July 2020: What Are You Reading?

This month I finished my 25th book for 2020 (not counting the few graphic novels I’ve read this year, too)!

Nonfiction books:

  • Creative Visualization: Use the Power of Your Imagination to Create What You Want in Your Life by Shakti Gawain
  • Who We Are: Reflections on My Life and Canada by Elizabeth May
  • Educated by Tara Westover

Fiction books:

  • None!

I also read a few Maclean’s magazines.

I’m not sure what my favourite book was this month.  Both Who We Are and Educated were very interesting reads.  Elizabeth May looked at how the political landscape in Canada changed, particularly under Prime Minister Stephen Harper; I knew of some of these changes, but others were rather surprising.  Tara Westover’s book was about how she graduated with a PhD after growing up in a household where her father was paranoid and didn’t send his kids to school (his older boys went to school but were later pulled out). Her first day of school was her first day in university.

So what have you read over the last month?  What was your favourite book?

  1. I can’t imagine not reading any fiction, Shauna; just shows how different we each are! I just finished “The Same Sky” by Amanda Eyre Ward. It’s about immigration and adoption…such an important and lovely book.

    • Shauna

      I actually prefer a good fiction book, but for some reason over the last few years I keep being drawn to nonfiction. In a lot of cases I feel like the nonfiction are things I “have” to read.

      “The Same Sky” sounds very interesting. I’ll have to add it to my want to reads! 🙂
