August Reflections

Hmm, let me see, what has happened this month? I meant to, but never really got started on a reading challenge that involved inspy awards books for this last round of awards. I honestly don't like having to read a book because it's required of me. I'd much rather read it because I want to read it and because inspiration struck. Some of the reads this month were that way, and that's how I like it. So, no more reading challenges of that ilk, I think.

August Goals

To my absolute amazement, I did read 5 books in August, which was a part of my goal. The rest of it was reading such books as Tiffany Girl by Deeanne Gist and some other books that I already own, but that did not happen, which is okay since I'm not in a rush to read any of them. I do wish I'd finished reading The Iliad, but that's just going to have to move to my goals for September. Certainly it needs to be finished before I crack the spine of Lorna Doone. On the plus side, I read both Not By Sight and Mind of Her Own, which were on my list of goals. Go me!

Books I Read

Plans for September

Reading Cornelia Funke's Inkdeath with chapter posts along the way

Finishing Homer's The Iliad

Reading a total of 4 other books, not really caring what genre or length

Let us welcome September!


  1. I read House of Dark Shadows years ago and really enjoyed it. Never finished the series, though (still have the last two to read).

    Hope you complete your goals for September! :)

    1. Yeah, it was a great book! I'm on hold for Watcher in the Woods with my library, but it's taking a while to come in for me. This is one series that I absolutely must finish because it's so absorbing and the 1st book ended in such a cliffhanger!
