Anna: July was a crazy month for me! Work was super busy, but I also took a mini-vacation to the beach! My wedding is only three months away now and it’s starting to feel so real!
Reading always helps me stay calm when there’s so much going on in my life. I also read a wonderful mix of genres this month!
Borne by Jeff VanderMeer
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
Hunger by Roxanne Gay
Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
Severance by Ling Ma
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang (not pictured)
The Dry by Jane Harper
What were your July highlights, reading wise or otherwise?

Hello! We're Anna and Alexis, twins from the Richmond, Virginia area. We both studied English and creative writing in college.
Anna spent a year after college working in book publishing in New York City. After living outside of D.C., she moved back to the Richmond area. She works in marketing. Her favorite genre to read is literary fiction, especially by female authors, and she also enjoys dystopian novels.
Alexis works in social media and content marketing and writes novels on the side. She recently finished grad school, where she received her MFA in creative writing. She loves reading fantasy, especially YA, magical realism, and the occasional lyrical fiction and romance.
We’ve been reading and writing together as long as we can remember, and we’re excited to share our bookish thoughts with you! Check us out on Instagram @takestwotobookreview.
