September 2019 Wrap Up

 

I actually thought I would read more in September with my husband working long hours.  Somehow that didn’t happen though.  I still did well, pretty close to my average.

 

These won’t be in order of when I read them, but they were all read in September.

 

Into the Crooked Place (physical arc)  4 stars

Gravemaidens  (digital arc)  4  1/2 stars

August 2019 Yearly Challenge Update

 

I’m doing surprisingly well with all these challenges.  If you saw my early posts, you’ll know that I hardly ever signed up for yearly challenges.   It overwhelms me and I always forget to go back and update on each one.  But I wanted to push myself a bit this year and signed up for a few.

In August, I read 1 book by an Asian author.  My total is 12/11.  So I’ve met this goal already and hope to get some more read before the end of the year.

I ended up doing better than I expected on this challenge.  I rolled for two boards and was able to finish both.

Wrap Up For #ARCAugust 2019

 

I joined #ARCAugust this year.  My sign up post can be found HERE.  As I figured, I did not make it through my TBR, but I did read and review (or have reviews scheduled) 9 arcs in August.

These are not in the order in which I read them, but all were finished in August.

August 2019 Wrap Up

 

It’s September (and my birthday month)!   August went by really fast.  I was a bit busier than normal on the weekends, but I was still able to read quite a bit.  Especially when I think of how slow I was with two of the books I read.  I liked everything, but there were definitely some standouts.

 

 

Truly Devious   4  1/2 stars

The Vanishing Stair  4  1/2 stars

Gideon the Ninth (digital arc)  4 stars

July 2019 Wrap Up

 

I had quite a few things going on in July, so I’m kind of surprised I finished as many books as I did.  I definitely found some new favorites, too.

 

 

House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig  (earc)  4 stars

Some Places More Than Others by Renee Watson (physical arc)  5 stars

Mooncakes by Wendy Xu and Suzanne Walker (earc)  5 stars

June 2019 Wrap Up

 

I am so happy with my June reading.  I know I read more because of my hand/tendon issues, so I wasn’t able to type online as much.  But I’m really surprised to see how much that helped.  I’m going to try to make a goal of reading an extra hour a day at least a few days a week now.

 

 

Killing November  5 stars

Ms Marvel Volume 10  5 stars

A Touch of Gold Audio/Reread  5 stars

Fan The Fame (arc)  4 stars
