Monthly Reflections (#44) ~ August

Photobucket

Monthly Reflections, where we take the time to reflect on the previous month.


My August Goals...

Read at least 12 books total
Including 5 NetGalley books


Books read:

My thoughts on August:

I ended up exceeding both of my goals and read 16 books, including 9 NetGalley ones! Considering I had another very busy month, I'm so happy with that!

Looking ahead:



 I've been really lazy with blogging this summer and I'm going to try and get back into it this month. Look for Weekly Giveaway Link-up to start again and, hopefully, Weekend Wrap-Up, too! :D I also have a ton of reviews to post, just need to get around to setting up the posts.

My goals for September:

Finished 14 books
Including 7 NetGalley books
Post at least 6 reviews

Books I'm hoping to read in September:



I finished Through Waters Deep today and a few of the other books I started before this month, but I'm hoping to finally finish them all before the end of September.

  2. A very nice list! I haven't read any of the books you've read, although I do have The Lost Heiress on my list of to-reads for sometime before the end of the year. I filled out the Reflections too, my 2nd time in a row. :)
