So far, I have read 5 books on my list for this month, plus a couple of extras.

Translation State - Ann Leckie. I liked it, although I did have to keep going back to figure out the pronouns. Everyone had different pronouns and then the Radch came in and called everyone she/her.

Keeper - Joan Hunter Holly. This was good. I am having fun with these Laser Books. This one has a sequel, so I am hunting for it.

You Sexy Thing - Cat Rambo. Good space opera. This one also has sequels, which I will read.

Trading in Danger - Elizabeth Moon. First book of Vatta's War. Liked it and will read the sequels.

The Temporal Void - Peter F. Hamilton. Really liked this one (favorite of this month) and have the third near the top of next months TBR.

The Last Town - Blake Crouch. Finished up this trilogy, which I enjoyed. Wonder if there will be a book 4? I have read quite a bit of this author and have yet to be disappointed.

Lockdown Tales - Neal Asher. Liked these. I have a hard time reading straight through short story collections, even when I like them. And these stories were good. I need to read the earlier Polity books.

I am currently reading A Time of Changes by Poul Anderson and Bringing Columbia Home by Michael Leinbach and Jonathan Ward. I am also listening to The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. All are good so far. Library holds have my TBR for August already planned.
