It’s September, which means we can say goodbye to the Dog Days of Summer! (At least in my hemisphere). It also means saying goodbye to my lazy summer days because I’m going back to school! I (crazily) enrolled myself in six college courses this semester and I’m drowning myself in assignments and homework. (;ω;)
I do have an (sad) announcement to make. Books Over Flowers is going to be somewhat inactive the following months. It’s tough not to be more involved with the book blogging community, but due to the amount of workload I have I decided it would be best to prioritize my schooling over my blog. This means infrequent posts and late reviews. However, I will respond to comments on my blog as soon as I can.
August 2013 Recap:
I accomplished reading 3 out of 5 books from my August 2013 reading list!
- The Theory of Everything by Kari Luna (reviewed)
- Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan (review in the works)
- City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (reread)
I was surprisingly nominated for the Liebster Award!
Since it’s a new month, I have theme prepared for my monthly reading list. You’ve may have already guessed it, but I’ll give you a hint on what my September theme is.
Fill in the blank: “Come on, Sammy! We’re gonna gank some ______ tonight!”.
That’s right, ghosts!
(Although, I’m not really sure if you can gank ghosts because they’re, ya know, already dead.)
The books on my list all involve ghosts or occult-like supernatural (Ha, I really like the TV show Supernatural :p) aspects.
I only have one book that I I fully intend to finish it this month and write a review for. That book is Rory by Ciye Cho. I started reading it on and off during August because I haven’t been in the reading mood, but hopefully I’ll be able to finish reading it soon.
These next three books are I really really want to read, but may not have a chance to finish or review this month: Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin and Lisa Brown, The Diviners by Libba Bray and The Ghost Bride by Yangze Choo.
Happy reading, everyone!
What are you reading this month?
