My August Book Shelf...and planned September Reads!

Happy Friday and Happy Holiday Weekend!

This morning I posted my Friday Faves to the blog, forgetting that I was also linking up with some of my best bloggy buddies from The Blended Blog, to share my August reads!  But it's Friday, it's a holiday weekend and it's the unofficial last weekend of summer, so a two-fer is in store!  Who doesn't love two-fers?!?  

Unfortunately, my August reads list, is a short one....a very short just ONE!!

Earlier in August, I blogged about what I hoped my life would be like 10 years from now on The Blended Blog!  The prompt, was an idea based on the book What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty.  I had hoped to finish the book before the post went live, but that didn't happen, because ya know...SUMMER!!  But I finally finished it!  And I gotta say!  I loved it!  I was really annoyed when I thought it was not going to end the way I had hoped, but in the end, all was right with the world.  I highly recommend it.  (Or am I the only one who had never read this one before!?!

Since I only read one book in August, I thought I'd share the books I have on tap for this month!  I am really committed to reading 30 minutes each night before bed so I hope that helps me up my "books a nonth quotient." 

Alison reads ALL THE BOOKS!!!!  A few weeks ago, one of her faves was The Last One.  I was immediately intrigued by it, so I requested it from my library.  I just picked it up!  I can't wait to start reading it this weekend!!  Read Alison's review here!

My Mom recommended the book When Friendship Followed Me Home as one I might like for my library and students!  She saw a review for the book in the newspaper, thought it sounded great so she bought it and read it.  After she read it, she said it was nothing like she thought I'd be and handed it over to me!  HA!!  I am resisting reading anything about it beforehand but there's a dog on the cover!  I'm thinking if it's about a boy and his dog, I may cry!!  It's a Middle School book, so I'm hoping I can get through it quickly like my mom did!

My sister, Tara lent me The Rumor by Elin Hilderbrand last week.  Tara reads all her books and really loved The Rumor. I had hoped to read it all this week and be able to return it to her by Sunday, but I don't forsee that happening!  And now that The Last One is a library book, I'm starting that first.  I like library books, they give me and end date!  Hahahahaha

Tara lent me a book, so I lent her these...
Some of my favorite reads!!

Wish Me Luck!!  See you back her at the end of the month to find out how I did with these reads and to hear my reviews!

What did you read in August?  Let me know with a comment below!  I'm always looking for great reads!!

Have a wonderful relaxing Labor Day Weekend!

  4. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
