Monthly Recap!

AUGUST
 
Where did the time go? It's already SEPTEMBER? Crazy! I don't mind though for two big reasons: 1) It's football time in Tennessee! 2) Fall is coming!
 
My reading has been down this month because school has started back up and it always takes me a bit to get back in the groove after being off for so long. I have some pretty great classes this year... and I have one awful one. I'm trying not to get discouraged by the one bad seed, but... it's hard.
 
I feel like I've been trying to get my blogging mojo back on track for so long now and it doesn't seem to be working. So, Tonya and I decided to come up with a reading/blogging schedule for the week to help streamline us. I felt it worked pretty well this first week!
 
Sadly, I had no 5 star reads this month! I had some that came super close though!
 
Out of all of the books I've read this month, I'd have to say my favorite has been Graceling by Kristin Cashore. I am in such a fantasy mood lately and I adored getting back to the Graceling Realm, especially after loving Fire!

  2. I hope you're having a fun time now that school's started up again. The Assassin's Blade broke my heart, and I'm so nervous about Queen of Shadows :D (And excited, but mostly nervous).

  3. Graceling is aweomse! I also love Right Wrong Guy and Make Me. Shadowland was interesting. I am really curious about that Emma Chase series.

  4. I hope classes go smoothly for you this semester! I didn't have any five star reads this month either, but Walk on Earth a Stranger is definitely somewhere in my top 5 for the year!

  7. I have a blogging schedule that I use too, on Google drive, and I love it. It definitely helps me stay organized and focused. I hope yours and Tonya's is a success!
    I read Sustained last night and LOVED it. Can't wait for Brent's book! And I'm super excited for Forever with You and Fated too. :)
    Happy reading, boo!

  8. I think a lot of us are suffering from that end of summer slump - hopefully we'll fall into new schedules and it will all sort itself out soon!

Leave me some comment love! And I will get around to commenting back!

My blog is an award-free blog, however, as I just do not have the time to follow-up.
