This was a crazy summer of reading. I had so many amazing books sent to me, and I was drooling each time I opened a package.
So many books, so little time, I thought to myself. So I got down to it. I picked up a novel, cracked the spine, and started reading. With one or two exceptions, each book was better than the one before. I tried so hard to write reviews in between books, but then, as I opened my computer, I’d spy another pretty book jacket and I’d get distracted. I got behind. So behind. Like 10 or 12 books behind. You heard me, 10 or 12. You see, the problem was, I could see the big pile of books sitting on my nightstand and I couldn’t resist slapping one shut and picking up another. It was summer. And summer is for reading, right?
Anyways, I wanted to mention this as I list all of the books that I read, some of which I’ve reviewed already, and some of which will have reviews forthcoming. I’m pretty sure all of them have been noted on my Goodreads Account. You should come visit me there.
I’m not going to brag or anything, but I’m pretty sure that I read nearly 20 books between June and the end of August.

That’s 19. I can’t believe I missed by goal by a single volume. There MUST be one I’m missing. I can’t believe what a slacker I am. Also, please don’t ask me which was my favorite. It’s not fair to make me choose. The books were all so different. Some were brilliant, some were light and easy reads. Some surprised me, and some will live with me forever.
Anyways stay tuned for my reviews so you can decide for yourself which ones to read. Because you know what? Winters are for reading to. And, so is fall, and spring, and Monday through Sunday.
