Rewind: August 2013

A lot has been going on this lately! Big projects, big changes, and some of the best reading of the year. Here’s what happened on the blog (and other places around the webs) this month.

Book Reviews

Other Posts

I’ve got a lot going on at the library—Read Across Lawrence, Banned Books Week, presenting at my state library conference, and other exciting projects I can’t really talk about yet. I’m busy with school and also working at the high school library in the morning, but still hope to have some time to blog here.

In September, I’m participating in the Classics Retold project, so there will be some posts on Norse mythology and reviews of books that are inspired by those trickster gods. Other than that, I’ll mostly be reviewing audiobooks, because that’s pretty much all I have time to read lately!

What was your favorite book you read in August? What exciting projects are you looking forward to? Feel free to share a link in the comments!

  1. You wrote that guide! It added a few books to my list.

    August was a great month for books. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown was probably my fave because I have a soft spot for vampires.

  2. I read some GREAT books in August: All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, The Midnight Dress by Karen Fowler, and This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales.
    Off to see what you thought of Where the Stars Still Shine — which I really liked) too :)
    Thanks so much for stopping by! Jen @ YA Romantics

  3. Unfortunately, I didn’t love any of the fiction I read this month. If I remember correctly, I only reviewed one book (Jennifer Miller’s The Year of the Gadfly), and mentioned a few others here and there, but most of the books I read weren’t even worthy of a post. I’m hoping September will be better. I have a few non-fiction books lined up, and I preordered Rowell’s Fangirl.

    1. I’ll definitely be interested in your take on FANGIRL — it’s a bit different than her other two novels in terms of what type of audience it will appeal to, I think. I have a copy of GADFLY and plan to read it soon. Hope September is a better reading month!

      1. I’ve been reading nonfiction this week and having a better time with it, but I’m definitely looking forward to Rowell’s Fangirl! As for Gadfly, I’d be interested to know your opinion of it. I really liked some aspects of it and disliked other aspects of it (including the way Miller portrayed some of the legal issues).

I'd love to hear your thoughts.
