August Reading Wrap-Up

This month was all about fun reading. I refuse to beat myself up for not reading the two classics I have started. I ended up reading a lot of the freebies that I downloaded years ago, getting some library books, and catching up on some series.

  1. Innocent in Las Vegas by A. R. Winters 3/5
  2. The Seven Steps to Closure by Donna Joy Usher 3/5
  3. Anything for You by Kristan Higgins 3/5
  4. At Last by Jill Shalvis 3/5
  5. Big Boned by Meg Cabot 4/5
  6. The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood 2/5
  7. Once a Soldier (eARC) by Mary Jo Putney 3/5
  8. The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg 4/5
  9. Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosch 4/5
  10. The Bride Says No by Cathy Maxwell 3/5
  11. Calamity Jayne and the Sisterhood of the Traveling Lawn Gnome by Kathleen Bacus 3/5

Considering how easy the above were to read, this was not a good month for reading. My guess is that all the readathons that I participated in during July burnt me out. I don’t consider this month a failure by any means! Next month I really need to finish Dubliners and Great Expectations. I’m also participating in #RYBSAT, so I’m starting September with a bang!

July Reading Wrap-Up

This summer is making me crazy. I’m in a funky reading mood. My classics reading challenge has me slumpy and cranky. Work is busy. I need a vacation. But I did manage to read these books this month and I attempted participation in Booktube-a-thon. And I started a Booktube channel!

  • Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan 3/5
  • Adventures in Funeral Crashing by Milda Harris 2/5
  • An Event to Remember…Or Forget by Melissa Baldwin2/5
  • Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman 3/5
  • Results May Vary (eARC) by Bethany Chase 4/5
  • Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch 4/5
  • Stolen Fury by Elizabeth Naughton 3.5/5
  • Lumberjanes, Vol 1: Beware the Kitten Holy by Noelle Stevenson 4/5
  • Walk On Earth A Stranger by Rae Carson 3/5
  • Longbow Girl by Linda Davies 5/5
  • Only The Good Spy Young by Ally Carter 5/5
  • Size 14 Is Not Fat Either by Meg Cabot 4/5
  • Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch 3.5/5
  • Dance Diaries: Learning to Ballroom Dance by The Girl With The Tree Tattoo 5/5 🙂

I’m currently reading both Dubliners and Great Expectations. I’ve put them on hold because I really feel like reading light stuff right now. Chick lit, romance, and cozy mystery are my healing words. It helps if they make me laugh out loud. 😀

Over the next few months I’d really love to read some dance books and do a huge review of them all, but we’ll see what time and my brain have in store. If you’re interested in my Booktube channel, I’ll leave a link below. No obligation. I’m still learning how to film, edit, and not feel like an idiot. As always, I hope everyone has a lovely reading month, and a delightful rest of summer.

I read one, lonely owned book this month.

  • Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson 4/5

I’m in the middle of four books that I’m going to carry over to March. I linked up by Instagram account ( dance_read_homeschool ) for this page somewhere- if anyone is interested. I did post a picture of my March TBR on there. No surprise that I have a ton of library books out with five more on the way. I’d better get reading.
