{Monthly Recap} – August

monthly recap

August was kinda blah on the reading front. I didn’t even have a 5-star book, and you know that is rare for me. I’ve been really underwhelmed by the books I’ve been reading lately. I hope this month I pick up some epic reads! I did participate in Bout of Books earlier in the month, but I’ve entered busy season at work, and I wasn’t able to read as much as I had hoped (worked through most of my lunch breaks and was too tired in the evenings to focus on reading). It was still a fun week, and I can’t wait for the next one!


Books I Read:


Playing Dead – 3 Stars

In a Dark Dark Wood – 4 Stars

Before We Were Strangers – 4 Stars

Swerve – 3 Stars

Shadow and Bone – 4 Stars

Things I’m looking forward to in September:


On a personal level, September is my favorite month of the year. We just celebrated my daughter’s 5th birthday last weekend, and my 7-year wedding anniversary is this Saturday. Life has been a bit of a whirlwind the past few weeks leading up to the birthday party, which has caused somewhat of a reading and blogging dry spell. Next week Sunnie starts preschool and dance class, and I know it will take a week or two to get into a new routine. On top of that, it is the busiest month of the year at work, and my lunch breaks are usually spent going for a much needed walk! I don’t really plan to do much blogging this month, but I DO hope to read more. We shall see.

    Hopefully a 5 star coming up in September. It can be difficult to fit everything in when you are busy at work and new things happening for Sunnie. In New Zealand our 5 year olds start school, doesn’t hurt I think to lead them in more gently like in the USA.
