August brought pretty meager reading - this was probably the busiest month of 2017! I worked into nights, we traveled to see the eclipse, my daughter moved out to the dorms, my other started school...
What I read was good (except for AFAR, which at least was pretty). Overall I enjoyed them but I am hoping for more in September!

A bit late with my #bestofaugust/end-of-month roundup... but here it is! I couldn't decide on my favorite--I had so much fun re-reading with #LOTRchapteraday AND introducing myself to Agatha Christie for the first time. I didn't read as many from the TBR this month, though--gotta get cracking for #LitsyAtoZ if I'm gonna finish by the end of the year!
August wasn't a great reading month for me, and it's only going to get worse because classes start next week. I read 10 books in August, which isn't bad, but I would have liked to read more. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was my #BestOfAugust. #AugustWrapUp #AndItsAugust #BooksAcrossOceans
Starting my #litsypartyofone, well I guess two because of my six year old who painted the awesome bookend. The #bestofaugust goes to Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng or Kwame Alexander's Solo. It'll change depending on my mood 😅 Seriously they were both amazing... Works of fiction with gorgeous writing exploring family dynamics in families of color? Yes please!
Forgot to mention my September #TBR
Day 31 #AndItsAugust #BestofAugust Catching up from yesterday with August stats & Best of August. Overall a good reading month. In addition to the finished books I started several others & have 2 in process for #hpchapteraday & #LOTRchapteraday I read plenty of great books this month, but these 4 are the ones I enjoyed the most or found most interesting. Still behind on reviews-Litsy & Goodreads-so I may try to work on that this holiday weekend.📚
My first two winners for August were easy to pick but third place was tough... in the end Idaho is the one that keeps lingering in my mind and that I don't think I will forget for a long time 🍁
🥇The Heart's Invisible Furies
These are the notebook pages I used to keep track of my August reading. August was a good month minus the fact I bought more books than I read from my own shelves.
Best of the month:
1. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
2. Ghost of the Innocent Man
3, Burn For Me/ White Hot
