Another long year has gone, but 2017 may be full of strife and hardship, at least we had a lot of great books to keep us sane through this hectic time. This year, more than ever, was where the importance of reading really shined.
This year of reading was a whole lot better than last year. I really branched out and tried out new authors while still revisiting old ones. So site back and get a pen ready. Because after I list my favorite books of 2017, you’ll be adding them to your own TBR list:
I know I am a couple of days late but I didn’t want to ignore the progress I mad so far. This month I made my triumphant return to the blog last month. I may not have made many posts but I think I did some great posts last month and they are more to come!
I know I am a week late and I haven’t been posting lately but I have my reasons.
I started a new job! As a librarian!
So all last month was basically doing training and learning new things, which is great but unfortunately it gives me little time to update this blog so I want to apologize for that. I know I haven’t kept up with my “Weekly Tea Discussions” but I’ll promise I’ll try to keep up with them.
I didn’t get to read that many books last month but once I’m settled in my new job, that will change:
I’m proud of myself this month. I actually read 7 books in August. I mean, I was on vacation and had some down time but still a huge accomplishment for me. This month’s reading gave me a lot more winners than I had in the previous months so maybe my reading slump is improving a little bit. Statistically, I had the most visitors and views on my website (over 1,000 views!) so I want to thank you all for your interest in my site!

Unfortunately, I didn’t read as many books I would have like to, due to trying to prepare for my vacation but I like to think I made pretty good progress for the year. Since I’ve read so many books so far for this year, I changed my reading goal from 30 to 35! I think I’m going to bypass 35 but I want to change bit by bit. Out of the bunch that I read, only one really wowed me:
I can’t believe that tomorrow will already be July! This month has went by too fast. But as June comes and goes, summer comes into full swing which gives us more opportunities to catch up on our reading.
Although this was relatively a quiet month compared to last, I didn’t get to do as much reading I would have liked to. I guess I met with some stinkers and god forbid, it was difficult for me to continue to read.But I always try to persevere. This month I read 3 books and 1 book I couldn’t finish because I was disinterested in it. Only one, a novella, met my “WOW!” thermometer. You can find my reviews of these books below:
