We are getting to the end of summer and I for one could not be more thrilled about it. I am more than ready for cooler temperatures, rainy days, more layers and pumpkin-spiced everything. I don’t even like things pumpkin-spice flavoured, it’s just a sign that summer is but a memory. And now that it’s the end of August (again, hooray!), it’s time to join Shannon @ Rivercity Reading in looking at how we used the library this month.
Another fairly quiet month for me. I am looking forward to more piles of books in fall, and chilly, rainy, grey days to enjoy them on.
Library Books Read
Did You Ever Have a Family by Bill Clegg (at least I didn’t buy it)
The Assistants by Camille Perri (which I loved and devoured in a day)
The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson (ended up loving it, will post soon)
Checked Out, To Be Read
All the Stars in the Heavens by Adriana Trigiani
Dear Fang, With Love by Rufi Thorpe
The After Party by Anton Disclafani
Under the Udala Tree by Chinelo Okparanta
None this month!
Nothing but I’ve been toying with the idea of putting My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier on hold for a while. Thought about doing the same with Erik Larson’s Thunderstruck but then I realized that I always love his work and just bought it.
Not a huge library month quantity-wise, but a mostly quality library month.
