July was Harry Potter month. It was fun to get lost in Harry's world, complete even with a few Hogwarts-themed dreams, by reading the last 4 books in the series back-to-back. I suppose it was hardly surprising then that it took me a few days to recover after finishing the last one. Since I couldn't concentrate on anything too deep, it was the perfect time to finally start reading some mysteries for the Summer Mystery Challenge.
My favourite read this month was easily Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Whereas my least favourite and the most disappointing was All She Was Worth.
