August 2014 Reading Wrap Up and September Events

My favorite picture I took this month. 
I really thought I'd do better this month. But, once again, it's been a crazy month. In fact, I don't think I've even read this past whole weekend, and a few days before that. So no going out with a bang or anything. Sigh. Life. Sometimes it's fun, and sometimes it makes me crazy.

Anyway, this is what I read this month. Four Utah Books and one not.

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell: For his job, Lincoln has to monitor the company's emails. In so doing, he gets to know a couple of fellow employees and falls in love with one of them.

Longing for Home by Sarah M. Eden: Katie has come from Ireland to work in Wyoming. It turns out she find herself in the middle of a feud between the Irish people and the others.

 Cut Me Free by J.R. Johannson: Piper wants to escape her past, but it's not going as she planned and she ends up right back in the middle of conflict and craziness.

 Becoming Lady Lockwood by Jennifer Moore: Amelia is on a voyage from her home Jamaica back to England to see about a proxy marriage she was involved in. Meanwhile, the captain of the ship is looking more and more interesting.

The Shadow Prince by Bree Despain: Haden has to go from the Underworld to our world in order to bring back a girl to save his world. He doesn't count on finding someone he actually falls in love with and who has her own feisty agenda.

Favorites of the month: The Shadow Prince... and then probably Attachments. Fun books!

I really need to step up my reading game if I'm to accomplish my Goodreads goal and fit in all the books I'm dying to read!

Plans for September:
  • Finish Dreams of Gods and Monsters
  • Read Maus for book club.
  • I started two other books for Utah book month... not sure I'll finish them right now.
  • Read The Letters.
  • Read The Iron Trial for review.
  • I don't know what else! We'll see!!!
Some events happening in September:

** 30 Authors in 30 Days! This is an awesome event hosted by Allison of The Book Wheel. I'll be participating later this month by featuring an author on my blog. Be sure to check out all the details here. 

** Carl's RIP is starting up again... it's RIP IX! Oh my word, I can't believe it's been going on this long. Check out the details here and start thinking of scary haunting books you should be reading! I'll be posting my potential list soon.

** BLOGGIESTA!!! This will be September 18 through 21. I still need some mini challenge hosts! Email me if you are interested!


  1. You have some fun events coming up this month. I haven't made a goal on Goodreads as I wouldn't make it ever :)

  2. Good month. A couple there I wanna read.
    Happy September reading!

  3. Wow! I can't believe it's almost time for Bloggiesta again. I feel like we just had one. Not sure if I'll join this time. I'm still wishy washy about staying/going blog wise.
