So maybe the post is late again this month, but it’s earlier than last month’s! I’ll count that as a win.
In August we took two long weekend trips to the beach. Those were surprisingly relaxing despite the intensity of keeping a hawk eye on three boys around water! Thank goodness for little bodies that need rest after hours of splashing. Those rests helped with my reading time and I certainly got in a lot of light reading!
Despite having quite a bit to do with launching my online course and planning the couple mini-trips, I found enough time to enjoy a whole bunch of cozy mysteries… mostly of the witchy kind.
On a more structured note, the boys started school again this past week – still online for this term – so that brings an end to the late morning rising! Ah well.
We’ll see what September brings in terms of number of books read, but I was quite pleased with my 11 for August! That ought to keep the Goodreads Challenge counter off my back.
Here’s what I read in August…
The witchy cozy mysteries were Much A’Broom About Nothing, Only the Buried, Freaky Gifts, All Swell That Ends Spell, A Midsummer Knight’s Scream, Schemes and Bad Dreams and Swords and Fallen Lords. There was one historical cozy with Who is Vera Kelly? The contemporary romantic dramas were Snowflakes Over the Starfish Café and We Belong Together. Finally, Perfect Grump was this month’s contemporary romance.
Five of these books came via my Kindle Unlimited subscription; six were for blog tours/ author requests.
I added 6 to my TBR for this month. I have three blog tours, two author requests and one from NetGalley. Here’s the plan…
English After-Doom Tea by Erin Johnson
Fool Me Twice by Camilla Isley
Second Chance To Wear His Ring by Hana Sheik
How Not To Chaperon a Lady by Virginia Heath
The Santa Suit by Mary Kay Andrews
Moons, Magic and Mystery – An Anthology
