Monthly Reading List | September 2013 + Announcement

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 also did reviews on Kpop Club by Y.R. Choi and Ristorante Paradiso by Nastume Ono.

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!”.

I’m starting a new school year, moving to a new location and reading unfamiliar genres that are totally new to me. Also, as you can see from the title, I’m also starting a new feature on my blog: a monthly reading list!

The feature is pretty straight forward. On the first day of very month, I post a list of potential books I want to read during that month. Depending on my mood or how busy my IRL schedule is the list is subject to change, but my personal goal is to at least read something every month and write a review for it. And to spice up the feature I’ll try to give every month a theme.

This month’s theme is *drumrolls*… Continue reading
