The TOP POST for the month was both For the Love of Harry Potter (because of the number of hits) and Back to School & Bout of Books (because of the number of comments). The former was so much fun to write, so I am so glad to see that one in particular on the list. I was a bit disappointed to see that my upcoming Sherlock event was not on this list, so if you haven't seen it yet go check it out now . . . Operation #ReadSherlock Coming in October!!!
The TOP PIC for the month was only slightly a surprise . . .
My pictures from my trip to Glacier National Park definitely had some good interaction in August, and that was definitely a highlight of the month for me. However, my book pics tend to get higher hits overall, and I really love seeing all the book love!
Now, for the list of BOOKS READ in August:
- Why I Can't Read Wallace Stegner and Other Stories: A Tribal Voice by Elizabeth Cook-Lynn
- Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
- Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed
- Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
A good month of reading! I'm still 14 books behind schedule for the year, but I'm good with it. I'm beginning to think (and accept) that I will not catch up with my goal for the year, but I am okay with it. I'm just going to keep on reading and enjoying every minute of it!
Trying to pick a FAVORITE READ for the month is a hard one. I am going to say Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire because I read it with my kids. It took us a while to get through it because of our crazy schedules, but those last pages were intense. Both kids were sitting on the edge of their seats as I was reading, and it was so much like reading it for the first time while I raced through the book to find out what happened with them. It was such an amazing experience! Beyond that, I will choose another title just for fun . . . Wild was so much better than I had ever expected it to be. I listened to it on audio, and it was such a great listen!
What's coming in SEPTEMBER? Outside of the books, I'm hoping to finish cleaning out my garage, hold a garage sale to get rid of my piles of junk, and finish the renovations and painting of my office. I am also looking forward to getting caught up on journaling and blogging. I have a number of reviews that I'm working on getting written, and #30Authors is returning and I will be back later this week with a fun little surprise for the event! I will also have more information coming soon for the Sherlock event that I mentioned above. In the books, I'm hoping to read as much as I can. I have some ideas of what I'm reading, but I'm going to leave it as a surprise . . . even to myself!
How was life in August for you? What are your plans for the month of September?
