Week in Review (31)

Random Thoughts

It is hard to believe it is September all ready. I will do my wrap-up for August sometime this week. Time flies, really. The year is going by way too fast! I have become very keen on reading lately and even posting. I hope it lasts, but I always tend to slow down as the year progresses. This might be the year when I change that, but it is hard to say. There are so many books that I want to read! I will never get through most of them, but I am determined to get through as many as possible.

Challenge News

I read more historical fiction. Considering I was very disinterested in it the first part of the year, I am happy that I have been reading more of it in the later part of the year. It was always one of my favourite genres and I was sad it wasn't really happening.

  1. I'm with you, when in the world did it become Sept?? and if it's school-starting time, it means it's going to be Halloween/Thanksgiving / Christmas before we know it. how's that for a sobering thought? :(

    anyways, I'm looking forward to your thoughts on The Night Circus, I've been hearing all sorts of good things about that title.

  2. I sincerely hope that this is the year that you break your funk!!!! *hug*

  3. **redhead: The Night Circus is really good so far!

    **Chris: Thanks!

  4. I agree--where the hell has the year gone?!! Anyway, I hope your reading and blogging mojo stick with you, Kelly! Both because I know that's what you want, but also selfishly so I get to read your thoughts. :)

  5. **Debi: aw, thanks. :) Sometimes I feel like I just talk to myself. I started this blog for me, but it doesn't mean it isn't nice to get comments.

  6. This year is going by really fast. I can't quite believe it's September already.

  7. **Kim: Me either! And then September seems to be going by really fast...

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
