August was a crazy hectic month for me. Work is picking up like crazy and between that, the Terryville Fair, and my family’s trip to Maine, there hasn’t been a moment to spare! Thankfully my time in Maine mostly consists of reading so I was still able to get a good amount of reading done and I even have a great jump off start to September too. So below is my progress for August:
# books read this month: 9
# pages read this month: 2,958
# books read year-to-date: 73
# pages read year-to-date: 21,756
Favorite Books I Read:
Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker – 5.0 stars
Seeing Red by Sandra Brown – 4.25 stars

ARC August Final Check in and Wrap up
Status of 2017 Reading Challenges:
- Finish 2016 ARC’s from NetGalley that I missed – Haven’t read any since last month so still have 27 to go (though stay tuned for September progress!)
- Participate in 2 reading challenges – During May I participated in the Bout of Books challenge and during this past month I participated in ARC August so this Goal is checked!
- Other goals:
- Write shorter reviews – I think I’m doing better at this, this past month I was able to get out a few shorter ones
- Continue establishing relationships – I think I’m doing it, we’ll see how it goes I guess!
Next Month TBR List:
I read all but two of the books on my TBR from last month plus a few more! Some of them I technically finished in September but I won’t include them at this point on my TBR for the next month since they’re already read. I actually don’t have many on the TBR list this month since I didn’t have a lot that I signed up for in September. I am hoping to get to some of the books on my backlog in addition to the ones listed below but I haven’t decided which ones yet. I will have to see where the wind takes me!!
-The Uncertain Season by Ann Howard Creel
-Pretend You’re Safe by Alexandra Ivy
-Every Boy’s Got One
-The Best Kind of People
-The Scot Beds His Wife
-A Season of You
My birthday is coming up soon and I can’t wait to spend it with my nose in a book!! Happy reading everyone!!
