It’s starting to look like twelve books a month is pretty standard for me, huh? I’m finally getting settled into the new jobs, which I’m loving, but keeping track of where I’m supposed to be and what I’m meant to be doing is much trickier than my old 8-4. Things should settle down soon, but I totally had to bust out a paper planner to get everything straight.
Reading-wise, August was filled with books that were really good but nothing mind-blowingly great. I suppose it’s better than crap-tastic July.
How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran
Lena Finkle’s Magic Barrel by Anya Ulinich
Never Mind Miss Fox by Olivia Glazebrook
I Shall Be Near to You by Erin Lindsay McCabe
Broken Monsters by Lauren Beukes
The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez
Baby-sitters’ Summer Vacation by Ann M. Martin
My Drunk Kitchen by Hannah Hart
The Children Act by Ian McEwan
The Undertaking by Audrey Magee
We Are Not Ourselves by Matthew Thomas
Best Book of the Month
Dataclysm by Christian Rudder
I’m totally looking forward to September, though, both for the stacks of books headed our way and all of the amazing events. I’m planning on taking part in the More Diverse Universe (#Diversiverse) reading challenge as well as giving R.I.P. IX a shot for the first time. PLUS, I just registered for the Southern Independent Booksellers Association (SIBA) trade show in Norfolk, VA, which is scheduled for September 19-21st, and I’m quite excited for that.
How was your August reading?
