August was an excellent reading month for me.  I read a lot of really fun books and participated in Bout of Books where I also got a lot of reading done.  I discovered (and subsequently devoured) a new mystery series and found a new author whose work I’m looking forward to exploring more.  I also re-read a book which isn’t something I’ve done in a long time and it inspired me to do more re-reading in the future.

I don’t have reviews up for the majority of books yet but they will be coming soon.  I did finish the entire Kick Keswick series so I’ll be reviewing all the books together and doing a review of the series as a whole.  I’m also on track to surpass my 100 book goal for the year and, if I keep up my current monthly reading amount, I may even surpass last years count.

Plans for September
I don’t have a set TBR for September but I am looking forward to reading more “autumny” books and classics which I’m usually in the mood for during the beginning of fall.  It has been in the 90s though so maybe fall won’t really be arriving until October. After loving the Kick Keswick books I’m definitely going to pick up another novel by her, Insatiable.

I also have A Constellation of Vital Phenomena  and Night Film on hold for me at the library but I’m 26/33 and 7/8 in the request line so I might be reading those later rather than sooner.  Either way, I’m looking forward to a wonderful month of reading!

How was August for you?  Did you participate in Bout of Books?  What books are you looking forward to reading in September?
