It’s that time to do a quick look back at August. I thought July wasn’t a stellar reading month in terms of the number of books read but it looks like the same holds true for August. I only read three books this month and one was even a carry-over from July. What is going on with my reading?
Anyway, I did finish In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume, People Who Knew Me by Kim Hooper and The Shanghai Factor by Charles McCarry. My favorite of these was People Who Knew Me. I really enjoyed that book.
With regards to my reading challenges progress, let’s just say I’m falling way behind on all of my challenges. Makes you wonder why I keep joining them but, what can I say. I love making book lists and love the idea of them so it’s fun and I’m sure I’ll continue to join more. This reminds me that I still haven’t come up with my potential reads for the Japanese Literature Reading challenge. Will work on that soon.
As far as what I’m looking forward to next month, oh lots of stuff. On the personal front, I’m doing a weekend trip with my two best friends. I cannot wait! I’m going to see some family members next month. When it comes to reading, I have some poetry, new crime fiction and lots of good stuff to dip into from my recent library haul and some ARCs that have arrived (I haven’t told you about those yet) and there’s also Banned Books Week and Hispanic Heritage month so I’ll try to put together some posts with some book recommendations. Also, shouldn’t the R.I.P. reading challenge also start soon?
So as always I’m excited to see where my reading adventures take me to next month. Actually I’m in the middle of some really good books so I’ll tell you about those in my next post. Now, how was your reading month and what are you looking forward to?
