Review Recap: August 2016

August was a super busy month for me and I didn’t get in as much reading time as I would have liked but I did get 7 new reviews posted… not to shabby! A lot of great reads and two new-me-me authors. So, it was busy but good. Check out my reviews below. :-)

I fee like my schedule has been slightly overloaded so I’ve been pulling back on accepting ARC’s. It’s so hard to say no because I’m pretty much “all the books!” lol! I have to be realistic though, there are only so many hours in a day. That being said, there are a few I’m kicking myself for not requesting. Let’s just file this under #readerproblems shall we?! ;-)

I’ve decided I’m posting my Recommended Read when I’m inspired to do so… which would be why you haven’t seen one. Hopefully I’ll have a new one to share soon.


School got off to a good start. We took a quick trip out of town to see family. And now we’re back to our regular schedule with school back in session…. I love the school schedule!

Happy September!
