August 2017 – Monthly Wrap-Up

Posted September 7, 2017 by Carole in Monthly Wrap-Up / 58 Comments

August 2017
August could be summed up in one word for me….BUSY!  I am not really someone who enjoys having too many things scheduled so it was a bit of a challenge for me.  My daughter turned 17 and started her junior year of high school before we even hit the middle of the month.  Things should settle down into a more normal routine soon.

My reading was down a bit this month which was really no surprise. I was able to keep up with the blog during the month and ended up with 27 posts for the month.

I am linking this post to the Monthly Wrap-Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

  1. 27 blog posts is great! I'm curious about that Bittner book. I just downloaded one of her from Amazon – it was free. 😀 I loved So I Married a Sorcerer! The next book needs to be here, like, yesterday. 😉

    I hope your September is awesome! Have a great day, Carole. =)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  2. Wow, you are one of the most productive bloggers I know, Carole. Glad to hear that despite having a busy month you still had a great month reading-wise. I hope you have another awesome month in September. Happy reading! 🙂

  3. Looks like you had a great month. And read some great books here. I am so glad that you finally picked up Rosanne Bittner and hope you enjoy the rest of the series.

    You've read and listened to some really great book. I would like to get my hands on Chasing Christmas Eve, it sounds so good.

  5. wow Carole, 13 books in a busy month is impressive I'm jealous :D. Looks like some really good book as well, so I can see how you might have been on a roll. Hope Sept is a good month for you

  6. Congrats on 28 posts! That's great! It does sound like you had a busy August, though; hopefully September will bring some relaxation. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on Chasing Christmas Eve. It looks fantastic!

  7. What a great month and I bet your daughter sure is keeping you busy. I finally finished The Spell Book of the Lost and Found and When I Am Through With You. I liked them both and need to get my reviews up. Hope you have a wonderful September.

  8. I think you did pretty fantastic with your reading and blogging considering how busy you are, Carole. 🙂

    Love seeing your stats.

    Have a great September!

  9. I thought I already commented. Oops, guess not! Your reading may have been down, but 13 in a month is still great! You and I are pretty close on our GR goals, I think I'm at like 117. Hope your next month calms down a bit!

  10. My reading was down too in August. I seemed to have a few mini- slumps here & there. I read Sleeping Giants a while back, I need to get to Waking Gods one of these days.

  11. I love how you recap and track your goals…I really need to try and do that (something I say every month lol!) Looks like some good reads are lined up next! Here's to a productive September!

  12. Wow! August was definitely a crazy month! I like seeing what you've read each month. It always reminds me of at least a couple of books I want to read but have forgotten about. The Lauren Layne is on the top of the list. Have a great September!

  13. It does sound like a busy month for you! Of course, most of your months sound busy from my perspective. 🙂 I am glad you were able to get some good reading in. I am looking forward to The Hunt too, although I need to read the first few books in the series still. 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful September!

  14. I agree–27 posts is amazing. I hope your September is going well too. I sent two kids off to college in August and have just one left at home–so weird and quiet now and grocery shopping needs are way less and so is the meal prep.

  15. I've wondered about "The Address." And I've looked up "Project Pandora." I guess it has brainwashed teen assassins. Isn't that the way it always is?

  16. I don't think I've visited your wrap-up yet! Been such a busy month. Sorry about that 🙂
    Your favorites are great! One of them is also my favorite (the Girl), and the other one is on my TBR (the giants!) Very exciting reading 🙂
