I fell so behind this month. We started school on the 16th which made it so hard for me to read. Coming home from work, going straight to the gym, and then trying to get dinner on the table and showered put me at 8:00 – 8:30 every night and I was just exhausted and not able to finish my reading goals. I was going to buckle down this week but also had an death in the family pushing that goal out the window as well.
Here’s what I did accomplish :
Inferno by Dan Brown – I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. It was very thought provoking.
Mr. and Mrs. American Pie by Juliet McDaniel – Cute, fast read.
Her Name Was Rose by Claire Allan – Another quick read that was different and creepy. This review will be pulished soon
Every Time You Go Away by Beth Harbison – I loved this way more than I thought I would. It was light even though the material was heavy. This review will be pulished soon as well.
She Was the Quiet One by Michele Campbell – This was a disturbing book for me as a teacher. It read verrrrry fast. The review will be published soon.
I’m still working on:
Outlander by Diana Galbadon – 79% finished. This is a lengthy book so I’m happy to have at least gotten this far. I started reading this with a book club. I was surprised how many people like myself did not finish. I will be finishing this ASAP.
The Other Woman by Sandie Jones – 29% done. I try and read my Kindle at the gym while on the treadmill. It makes time go by fast and I have not found that my miles are affected with or without reading since it is hands free. Because the last few days I was at a viewing and funeral, and we had a heat wave, I only made it to the gym once. I’ll be working on finishing this too.
I will be finishing the two mentioned above and hopefully reading these in September:
The Book Theif by Markus Zusak – Physical Copy. I’ve been really wanting to read this for years. I’ll be reading it with a book club so I hope to really dive in and finish this one.
Rust & Stardust by T. Greenwood – Netgalley. I’ve been hearing so much about this one. I hope that it does not let me down! Although it contains disturbing content, it takes place in Camden, New Jersey, just two cities and ten short minutes away from me.
The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton – Netgalley. I didn’t read The 7 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. I’m not sure if this is a revamp or what but either way, I’m excited for it. Do any bookies know more about this?
The Perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand – Netgalley – I keep seeing this everywhere as well and I’m behind but will be getting to it hopefully this month!
I have so many more Netgalley books to read and I’m hoping to get to more than my anticipated to catch up but after last month’s fiasco/fail I don’t want to overdo it. We will see!
Have any of you read these? What’s on your radar?
