I’m finding it difficult to believe that summer is over and I am back to school already! It was a busy summer filled with lots of reading and book reviewing. Back at school this semester I am already knee-deep in English Renaissance Drama, Shakespeare, Modern Grammar, and Young Adult Literature. You all know what that means….less time for pleasure reading but still plenty of books to review! I’m looking forward to sharing my take on some literary classics with you as well as exploring the world of Young Adult literature.
For those of you who missed my initial post on this topic, I have decided to embark on a most enjoyable challenge to read 75 books in 2013. (This goal was updated from 52 to 75 mid-year). I have chosen to participate in the Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge in which I select my own goal, and a book a week is what I came up with as truly doable this year. Each month I will give you an update on where I am in the challenge and what books I was lucky enough to indulge in. I’ll also include a link to Amazon.com for each book in case you would like to pick a read up for yourself.
In the month of August I have read three books and according to the graph on Goodreads, I am at 65% of my goal, which is one book (1%) ahead of schedule! I’m just a bout where I need to be in order to reach my goal on time this year. With all of the books I’ll be reading for class this semester I’m not too concerned about not meeting the goal!
This month I read the following books. You may click on each one to see my review and purchase information.
As usual I am open to your recommendations and look forward to talking books with you!
