So. Yeah. I might have not been very successful writing reviews after getting caught up on outstanding ones, but I had a fabulous reading month. I finished thirteen books in August. If I keep up that pace, I might make a dent in my outstanding review copy pile! The rest of the month is a bit of a blur. The three of us took a long weekend and went boating up north for a few days. We came back to face Holly’s “choreography camp” and the beginning of regular poms practices. I don’t even want to know how many hours I spent picking up and dropping off Holly for three weeks. It was a bit too much, and I enter September so far behind in my own work. Thankfully, Holly starts school on Wednesday, so we can get back to some semblance of a regular schedule. Plus, with dance relegated to the evenings, Jim can help out more than he could in August. September is going to be a busy month with three home football games for Holly and a trip to Ames, Iowa to visit Connor for Jim and me. Add to that budget season, more dance, Holly’s sophomore year of high school, and budgets for Jim. All we can do is take it one day at a time and make good use of the few moments of freedom we find.
Hosted by Kathryn from Book Date, “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind. Here is what I read the week ending 2 September 2019. To learn more about each book, click on the book cover!
Oh! How is Kingdom of Souls? I’ve been excited to try that one! And what did you think of Transcription, also? I enjoyed it, but maybe not as much as I enjoyed my favorite Kate Atkinson book so far, which was Life after Life.
Ooh, I would love to hear your thoughts on at least three of these! Looking forward to some mini reviews when you have time.
I’m glad you’ve been able to do so much reading!! It’s a great feeling to get caught up.
Looks like you had some good reading in August. Several are on my list for the future. Life kind of takes over at times, doesn’t it? We continue reading, but sharing thoughts go down the list of priorities. Hope the start of school goes well and that September will just as great in the reading department (and other things of course). 🙂
Yay for a long weekend for the three of you! Glad you were able to get away.
I just finished Bruce Springsteen’s autobiography Born to Run, which was great. I don’t know why it set on my shelf for at least two years. I don’t know why I waited so long, but it came at just the right time.
