How is it September already?! August went really fast and was quite busy. But now we’re into my favorite month of the year and closer to FALL, my favorite season. 🙂
Last month was a great reading month and I read some really fantastic books. I also met my Goodreads goal of 50 books for the year! I try not to stress myself out with the number of books I read, because it just sucks the fun out of reading for me. But it does make me happy to surpass the 50 book mark. I participated in Bout of Books 11, which helped me get more books read in a month than I normally do. I had a lot of fun with BoB and look forward to the next one.
Other exciting news in August – Colleen Hoover announced the title of her newest book, Confess. Can’t wait for it!
Books I Read:
All or Nothing by Kendall Ryan
Boomerang by Noelle August
My Favorite Books of the Month:
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
Don’t Let Go by Sharla Lovelace
Another month where I can’t pick just ONE favorite. Big Little Lies is a close second.
Books Read in August: 9
Books Read in 2014: 51
Things I’m looking forward to in September:
I managed to read at least 2 of the books on my list from my July Recap. Better than none. September is a very busy month for me at work, so I don’t anticipate getting as much reading done as I did in August. There are a few books on my radar – I’ve been contemplating giving the Throne of Glass series a try. I really hate starting a series that is unfinished, but the hype has me super curious. It appears to be a 6 book series, and only 3 have been released. But I think Rachel @ Confessions of a Book Geek has talked me into doing a buddy read with her. My curiosity is getting the best of me. 🙂
I’m also tossing around the idea of starting Harry Potter. I KNOW! I’m the last person on the earth who hasn’t read this series. And actually, I have read the first 3 books, but it’s been so long ago that I remember nothing about them. Lori @ Palmers Pageturners finished the entire series over the summer and her enthusiasm for the books has inspired me to give them another try. How can I not enjoy them, right? It’s Harry Potter, who’s loved by pretty much the entire world. It could be a bust, just like The Hunger Games was for me. But we shall see.
I’m also excited for a book I’m starting today – After I Do. Getting some serious love in the blog world lately. After seeing Jamie @ The Perpetual Page Turner rave about it – I immediately purchased it on my Kindle.
And a few new releases in September I’m anxious to get my hands on.
What’s on your radar for September?
