It’s September. August has flown by and summer is on it’s way out! It’s been an incredibly busy summer and I know my reading has suffered as a result. I am hopeful that with fall comes a more relaxed schedule and much more time to catch up on my reading.
You’ll never guess how many books I read this month? Yep, 5! How did you know? I’m currently about 8 books behind schedule for the year, and I’m starting to feel the pressure to catch up.
Below we shall explore the books I have read for August:
Wow! I just realized that only one book was for review purposes, and that was Uninvited. (I actually did have another review book, but for the first time in the history of ever, I refused to finish it. It was, to put it mildly, vulgar and pornographic.) Three out of five books were library picks by authors I’ve come to truly enjoy. Those were The Good Girl, Truly Madly Guilty and Crowned and Dangerous. And, the last book I read was of course, for my monthly Reading Challenge. That was, to read a classic. I chose a beautiful copy of The Secret Garden. I purchased it at Barnes & Noble specifically for the occasion.
I can honestly say that aside from the disappointing experience with the unfinished book, this entire month has been full of really good reads. It’s really hard to say which was the best of the best, but I would have to choose Uninvited. The only non-fiction book of the group, this book has left a lasting impact on me and reached the very core of my heart on many levels. I highly recommend it to any girl who struggles with fitting in in this glittering world. Among the novels, while they were all excellent, I’d have to choose Truly Madly Guilty as my favorite. I have become a huge fan of Liane Moriarty, though I’ve only read two of her novels to date.
Now comes the time in the post where I promise to do better next month and read more books. I hope to. I really, really do.

Until next month…that’s all folks!
