I just spent some time organizing all of the posts I want to get up for August! I want to schedule about a month's worth of posts for when school starts again, but I find that is the easiest way to survive the first month of a new semester. That means I need to get writing posts like crazy!
What I Read:
I finished The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson this week. I thought this was the conclusion to the trilogy, and I was excited to finish this series. I had been waiting forever for this book since the release was pushed back a couple of times, but alas! It's not even the conclusion! I'm a little annoyed about this but hopefully I will get a conclusion to this series sometime soon! I also started reading Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein from my August Goals list (linked below) and it is proving to be an emotional read from page one.
What I Bought:
Both of these came from the little used section at my local library. I have two of these Jane Austen Mystery books now and they look so cute- I hope to read them during my next semester as they will be light reading, and it won't matter if I have to put them down a million times before I finish them. I love the idea of Jane Austen as a sleuth.
I love poetry and Neruda is a well known poet that I have yet to read much from so I was excited to find a large collection of his works for only fifty cents. I'm hoping to do a Poetry Spotlight on love poems soon, so keep an eye out for that!
