Unfortunately, August couldn’t keep the momentum of July going. It was a bit of a slow down for me, but I’m venturing into a long audiobook so that’s to be expected. My class started yesterday so I don’t know how September will be, we’ll have to see. You can look at my progress at any time on my challenge page.
Books finished in August:
Quite the boy’s club for this month! I’m reading a female author now so I hope next month can balance that out a bit.
This is my challenge to read a book from 13 different time periods. You can read about it here. No further update for this month. I’ll see about finding a 1600s audiobook I can listen to, but I know this period is always a challenge. Any suggestions for a good book in this time period?
Still ahead of schedule! I was hoping this would be the case so I could feel comfortable with my long audiobook. It’s been a while since I listened to such a long one and I’m hoping to be able to finish it without loosing my progress toward this goal.
Book of the Month
Yikes, a hard choice this month. I really liked Peace Breaks Out by John Knowles. The book was short and delivered a punch with its theme and characters. It was exactly what I was hoping for with another Knowles book and I enjoyed it.
Added to my TBR
Only one added! Awesome. This means my TBR is down 2 overall (three read, one added). I’ve been making a point of trying to topple this monster at least below 100 in the near future.
- The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. This book has gotten such good press in the past year or so and it’s a short little audiobook that I think I’d enjoy.
How are your challenges going? I hope you’re killing it. If you love historical fiction, give some thought to my challenge, it’s fun!
Until next time, write on.
