Looking back on August, forward to September

August wasn’t a terrible month, so far as blog content has gone. At the end, it’s the month in which I wrote the most entries, which is something to be proud of, I think. I joined the Book Blogger Hop, which has given me a few things to think about and has helped me find a few new blogs worth reading. I wrote about diversity in book blogs, combining reviews for books old and new, big-name and small press. I debated whether or not to do audiobook reviews, and heard a few interesting opinions on the subject.

Review-wise, August was an average month. I finished and wrote reviews for 5 books, which seems to be my monthly average since I started this blog. (It seems to range between 4-6 books reviewed each month, for the most part.) Most of the books were YA fantasy or paranormal in nature, with a small amount of nonfiction for flavour.

  • Night of the Solstice, by L J Smith
  • Immortal, by Gillian Shields
  • My Sparkling Misfortune, by Laura Lond
  • Trickster’s Girl, by Hilari Bell
  • Culture Shock! Japan, by P Sean Bramble
  • Learning to Bow, by Bruce Feiler

    All in all, not a bad month.

    For the coming month, September, I have another 5 book reviews planned as definites, and there may be another one or two depending on how busy my schedule ends up. Thus far the definite reviews will be for the following books:

    There are a few other books from NetGalley that I’m looking forward to reading, and I hope I’ll be able to add at least one of them to the list of September’s reviews, if I have the time.

    Here’s to a happy and comfortable September of reading!
