Week in Review (30)

Random Thoughts

August has turned out to be a great reading month! I will never catch-up on all the reviews I am behind in, but that's nothing new. I am looking forward to R.I.P., which should be gearing up this week. I have been trying to get everything I am currently reading finished so I can concentrate on that challenge. The autumn is my favourite time of the year, so I am excited. Right now we are getting the leading age of the storm known as Irene. It missed us mostly, so that turned out to be a thing to be grateful for today. I hope no one else in the path of the storm suffered too greatly. It is really muggy out right now.

Challenge News

I read a few historical fiction books. A lot of my mind has been on finishing some trilogies/series lately, so I did accomplish that. To me that is more important than challenges.

  1. I'm jealous of your great reading month. Mine has been so pathetic that I've taken to reading short children's books to make myself feel better about an August of reading fail. I'm looking forward to those crisp autumn days, too. Hopefully they'll help me get back on track!

  2. I'm looking forward to RIP so much!

  3. Wow you read a lot this week!!! And I'm super excited about RIP too. Hoping it gets me back into the swing of things!!

  4. **Megan: I have had some bad reading months this year, so I am just hoping that the good ones continue...

    **Amanda: It will be fun!

    **Chris: I hope it does, too!

  5. Good Lord how do you read so much. I am so jealous! I wish I had your attention span. Of course, I wish I had any kind of attention span! I loooooved The Disreputable history of Frankie Landau-Banks. It was a lot of fun!

  6. **Heather: I am looking forward to the Frankie Landau-Banks book.
