"Month In Review"

August was a pretty slow reading month for me.  I started the month by starting a few different books and finishing none of them.  They won't end up a DNF's for me, I will finish them soon but they just weren't what I needed to read at the time.  A mid-month Bout of Books did help get me reading and now I think I'm back on track.  You know how summer can be.  Now that school is starting, I'm sure I'll get much more read.

Here is what I read with GoodReads ratings in August:

Atlas Girl by Emily Wierenga *****
The Love Detective by Alexandra Potter *****
When I Fall in Love by Susan May Warren ****
OMG Baby! by Emma Garcia ****
Wait For It by Jesse McLean ****
Ice Creams at Carrington's by Alexandra Brown ****

Canadian Book Challenge (1), Diversity in Books (0), TBR Pile (0), Classics Club (0)

What I'm Looking Forward to in September

The announcement of the ScotiaBank Giller Prize long list on September 16th.  That will decide for me what I will be reading for the next two months!


  1. I always look forward to the Giller Prize as well. Who do you think the contenders are this year?

    1. I have no clue! I'm not good at predicting it at all but I would like to see Kim Fu's For Today I Am a Boy and Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer's All The Broken Things in there.
