August is over, and there is less than a month until Autumn!
If you can’t tell, I just really hate the summer. Honestly, September through December is the best third of the year and you cannot possibly convince me otherwise – cooler weather, beautiful scenery, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, excuses to snuggle, crock pot meals and hot drinks. What’s not to love? Nothing. Summertime means … bug bites, heat rash, sweat, high power bills, kids everywhere, your car trying to burn you when you get inside of it after a long day at work. What is good about any of that? Nothing. OK great. (I am also a mountains over beach person which might contribute to this).

My goal was to read more in August, and I think it’s safe to say I definitely did that – I read over 900 pages more this month than last. However I didn’t like the books as much as I did in July, so it is what it is. I am not even factoring in the insanely terrible piece of crap I read called No One Else Can Have You that I didn’t even write a review for because it would just be me high-pitched keening and slamming my face into the desk – that would have significantly lowered my average rating but increased my pages read by about 350.
I am such a mood reader that these are always hard for me, but I will also – as always – make a fair shake attempt at it.
My Lady Jane is my “gimmie” for September, because I’m reading it now. Always keep a win up your sleeve, folks.
Other than that, I have no idea. I am saving my spooky reads for October, so I think what I read during Summer’s last gasp will largely depend on what I feel like picking up at any given moment. 🙂
What about you this month? Come talk to me in the comments!
