Challenge Update, August 2015

1 Sep

This summer has been wonderful for books I choose and not book club selections. I’m loving how much I’m able to push through m huge TBR shelf. You can look at my progress at any time on my challenge page.

Books finished in August:

Mockingjay // Suzanne Collins (4)
The Museum of Extraordinary Things // Alice Hoffman (2)
The Glass Castle // Jeannette Walls (4)
The Miniaturist // Jessie Burton (3)
Dark Places // Gillian Flynn (5)
Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands // Chris Bohjalian (3)

Reviews coming for the last few. I’m making decent progress.

When Are You Reading? Challenge

This is my challenge to read a book from 13 different time periods. You can read about it here. My timeline will track all of my books and show which time period they fall into, but it’s a little behind on the updates. Only one more to go! The Miniaturist fulfilled one and I know what my last book is going to be. It’s sitting on my shelf, waiting to be read. So close!

Goodreads Challenge


Still four books ahead! I’ll make it to December with no problem I’m sure. Considering all the books I have ‘in process,’ this could jump quickly!

Book of the Month

CastleI’m going to have to go with The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy and devour it and it was a great read.

Added to my TBR

I actually didn’t add any this month! It seems I missed one last month, so I’ll not that here. I’m super excited to be eating away at my TBR!

How are your challenges going? I hope you’re doing better than me! If you love historical fiction, give some thought to my challenge, it’s fun!

Until next time, write on.

You can follow me on GoodreadsFacebookTwitterPinterest, and Instagram. I’m available via email at And as always, feel free to leave a comment!

      Good luck! Can you angle in a few shorter titles?

        I’m actually doing that now so that I won’t scramble at the end of the year. 🙂
