Read This Month

I can’t believe tomorrow is already October. We’ve been in Dallas a month and a half, and things are finally starting to cool down. Or…at least as much as Texas cools. The State Fair just opened up, and my lucky husband gets to take a work trip over there today. I’m so jealous! Hopefully we can make it over there soon.

I read a ton of books great books this month. Now that I’ve set a schedule for myself, I’m getting quite a variety again. And I’m allowing myself to ditch books if they aren’t up to par, which I had stopped doing at one point. Gotta stop wasting time. Some books just aren’t blog-worthy.

(Which, on that point. Aaron’s Rod is on the list below, but I’m not going to do a post about it. I got about 65% through it before I had to give it up. Far enough to count it as “read” but I’m not going to bore you guys with a terrible post. Not DH Lawrence’s best work, let’s leave it at that.)

And now, the books!

I Need to Buy This

It’s no secret around here that I loooooove Harry Potter. If you haven’t figured that out by now…you haven’t been paying attention.

It’s even worse lately, since we got back from Universal and I started rereading the series. I’ve been obsessed, really.

One thing I’ve realized is that borrowing the books is not enough. I am going to HAVE to buy them, and soon. Every time I go into a used book store, I look at all the different copies…but I really don’t want used ones. I need matched perfect copies that are going to last repeated uses. Because you know I’m going to read these babies over and over and over every year.

I just have to.

Oh my gosh you guys, I’m back. Finally. I warned you, the last month has been absolutely insane, and for those of you who haven’t completely abandoned me, I thank you for sticking around. I fully plan on ramping back up to regular blog posts, challenges, etc going into September. We are unpacking our stuff this week, which means bookshelf organization! I always get really excited about my books about that time so who knows what I’ll post. Keep an eye on the Instagram…there’s bound to be some fun stuff there.
