We went to visit the sunflower fields over the weekend. They were amazing!
Another summer in the books! This summer felt kind of like a dud so I am glad to be moving into fall, cooler weather and fun holidays. I've been craving pumpkin so I ended up baking a pumpkin cake over the weekend. YUM.
I did a decent amount of reading in August but felt like I was in a reading rut nonetheless. I know I could have read a ton more but instead I just watched Netflix a lot. Most of what I read just didn't do it for me. I did hit my reading goal for the year so that was awesome and most of what I read were books I owned so I am happy about that. I set a goal to read 5 books I own and I ended up reading 6! I did not meet my non-fiction goal for the month but that's okay; I wanted to read 3 and I only finished 2. I want to read more non-fiction than I did last year (16 books) and I have read 13 for the year so I am on track.
I don't really have any set reading goals for this month or the rest of the year. I would like to read 80 books this year and focus on non-fiction and books I own but we'll see how that goes. With regards to the blog, I don't know what will happen. I felt pretty good about it for June and July but blew it in August. I have some reviews to post in the next two weeks but after that, I may take a break for month or so. I really like doing it but sometimes it feels like a chore and I hate when that happens. So I'll just have to wait and see how I feel.
Here are my reading stats for August:
-8 books read
-5 historical fiction
-1 review book
-1 library books-6 books I own
What I read in August:
1.) College Unbound by Jeffrey Selingo - 3 stars
2.) The Diplomat's Wife by Pam Jenoff - 3 stars
3.) The Nazi Officer's Wife by Edith Hahn Beer - 4 stars
4.) The House Between Tides by Sarah Maine - 3 stars
5.) Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas - 4 stars
6.) Daughters of the Witching Hill by Mary Sharratt - 3 stars
7.) Duty to the Crown by Aimie K. Runyan - 4 stars
8.) The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy - 3 stars
I hope y'all have a great September!
