YES! It's September! I love that it's approaching the fall season. It's a wonderful time of year! :)
Here's what I managed to read this month. Hmmm... not such a big list. I suppose August was a little busy, yes?
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa: Meghan finds out that the world she's been living in is not what it seems, and that she actually belongs to another world altogether.
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert: The author writes of her experiences when she takes off for a year of travel in Italy, India and Indonesia.
Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr: Sam struggles with her faith because of events happening around her, both in the world at large, and her own family.
A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner: Gen's friend, Sophos, is caught up in the middle of much political plotting and maneuvering.
Mistwood by Leah Cypess: Isabel, a shapes hifter sworn to protect the king, is finding that she is confused about where her loyalties lie.
Children of God by Mary Doria Russell: We learn about what happened on the planet Rakhat after the first mission left.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins: The rebellion against The Capitol begins with Katniss as its symbol... The Mockingjay.
The Eternal Ones by Kristen Miller: All her life Haven has had visions of another life. When she finally decides to investigate, she's not sure she likes what she learns!
My favorites of the month: Eat Pray Love, Children of God and Mockingjay.
In looking back, I pretty much accomplished my plans from last month, except for that darn TBR Challenge list! Here are my plans for this next month:
- Stay on track with the Bleak House read along.
- Finish Wheel of Time book four, The Shadow Rising.
- Make a dent in Fall of Giants.
- Read a book or two for RIP.
- Read (or at least start) The Wizard of Earthsea for book club.
- See what's being promoted at the book fair in Oct. and read a couple of those!
- Will The Clockwork Three make it to me this month? If so, I will read it!
How did your month go? What plans do you have for next month?
