August was a month of lots of reading (13 books again), and also a lot of stress and reflection. Thank you so much to everyone who had such kind words to say when I announced my short hiatus a couple of weeks back. I have been blown away by how supportive this little corner of the internet is 🙂
Now, let’s get into it!!
Books I Read:
Belgravia by Julian Fellowes (4.5 Stars)
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz (5 Stars)
Noteworthy by Rile Redgate (4 Stars)
Zenn Diagram by Wendy Brant (3.5 Stars)
Jane Austen at Home by Lucy Worsley (4.5 Stars)
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne (5 Stars)
The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson (4 Stars)
Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson (5 Stars)
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles (4 Stars)
I listened to a ton of audiobooks this month, thanks to a great sale over on Audible. I was surprised to see just how many of the books I finished were audio, over physical and e-books.
Physical Books: 3
Things I Posted:
I didn’t post quite as much this month. I got a bit burned out, which is why I took the past two weeks off (and why this post is going up on the 10th of September haha) I have found that taking a short break was necessary for me to get back to enjoying posting on the blog again…and not feeling like reading was becoming a chore.
Other than my blog break, I had a fairly low key month. I got my hair redone (in red this time!). I had a Pride and Prejudice mini series marathon with my friend Taylor. Baby showers, birthday parties, and my monthly tea party 🙂 I sang in a wedding, which was fun, as well as a bit stressful.
I am still going to physical therapy for my neck/shoulder pain. I’ve been going now for around 5 or 6 weeks, and I’m still not noticing much of a difference. I hope it will start to help soon, but I am looking into other treatment options in the meantime.
My September TBR Pile:
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian
My Plain Jane by The Lady Janies
I’m going to try to keep the number of books I read this month to a much lower number. I’m at least not going to stress about trying to read quickly. 😉
How many books did you read last month? Have you read any of the books I read? What about the books on my TBR for September? Do you ever feel like you need to take a little break from reading? Let me know down in the comments!
Love and happy reading,
