Why does work have to get in the way? Lol. I think I’d be much happier with a two-day work week and a five day weekend to catch up on my reading, reviewing and blogging. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone on this one 😏. Unfortunately my blogging time is even more limited now with some extra projects at work so I probably won’t be posting as regularly as I’d like to. However, I’ve also seriously limited how many author requests I take on which has freed up reading hours to catch up on some favourite series I follow.
Long hours at work or not, reading is still my stress relief and I managed to get through 7 new novels in August and I finally finished Corelli’s Mandolin, bringing my tally for the month to 8. I must have been relieving a lot of stress since the start of year as I managed to complete my Goodreads Challenge in August too 🤔. When Sally Comes Marching Home was the book that sealed it for me for 2019.
Here’s what I read in August.
August was a mixed bag of reads as I knocked off romance, cozy mystery, suspense and historical fiction books! Haunted House Ghost, Buried in the Stacks and Freaky Witches were my cozy mysteries. On the romance front, I read Hollywood Heir and The Secret to Happiness. Historical fiction reading brought me Corelli’s Mandolin and When Sally Comes Marching Home. Romantic suspense novel, Merciful Fate rounds off the list. I made good use of my Kindle Unlimited subscription in August, reading 4 through the program. Unfortunately, I didn’t knock any off the physical shelf. Ah well..
For September, I want to work on a Lily Harper Hart series I haven’t read in a while and catch up on the Miss Fortune series too. I accepted a NetGalley invitation for Emma Heatherington’s latest and I’m looking forward to it. Finally I’d like to read Meg Medina’s award winning Yaqui Delgado book.
