Hey y’all! It’s been a little bit, but here’s a small update about how things are going. 🙂
How many books that I planned did I read?
I planned 8 books and read 5 of those, plus one other that I added during the month.
The book that I attempted was one I found, tried, and quickly hated. That’s all I’ll say, because it’s not worth any more time.
The Inheritance of Orquidea Divina didn’t really pull me in because it seems to be told in the perspective of about thirty different people, and that is REALLY not what I wanted any time recently. So I might go back to this, but at the moment I’m just reading a chapter here and there. The Land of Big Numbers was similarly vignette-ish, so same story: even though they were interesting and compelling, that’s probably a later thing.
I *did* however finally finish Skyhunter a year after I learned that I had won it from Goodreads! For real, I got the memory reminder this week. I just made it. 😂
Still some health stuff keeping things limited in August, but getting better. On top of that, work was pretty hectic so there were some long days in there.
I didn’t do a whole lot of posting myself, but I did read some fabulous ones from other folks! Take a look and check them out. 😊
