I find it difficult to believe, considering that August is a summer month and I’ve been childless for a large part of it, but this was an absolute bomb of a reading month for me. A total bomb. In the entire month, I only finished…wait for it…two books.
I think part of the problem is that one of those books was really long, and the other was read leisurely as part of a readalong, but still. Two books??? Thank goodness I’m already well ahead of my yearly goal, or this would represent a major setback.
So, in August I read and reviewed:
The Passage by Justin Cronin, 3.5 stars
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, 4 stars
Technically, I finished Moning’s Shadowfever at the beginning of August, but I included that in last month’s wrap-up post so can’t use it here. I did write my review of the series this month:
And I was pretty busy on the blog in general, with several Weekend Cooking posts:
I also signed up for several new challenges this month, including joining The Classics Club and Carl’s RIP Season for September and October. In general, I’ve decided to stick to monthly challenges as I’ve found it impossible to keep up with multiple annual challenges. My brain just can’t handle it! I’m going to finish out the year with the ones I started, but I don’t plan on adding any new ones for next year. Besides, I’ll have my hands full reading all my Classics Club books!
Hope you all had an nice August and are looking forward to September and a new season of reading.
