Weekly Book Recap #79

How did it get to be the end of August so quickly?  As I continue to wonder where the summer has gone--an activity I seem to indulge in at this point every year--I'm trying to come to terms with the fact that I only made a slight dent in my summer reading list.  With less than a week left in August, I concede that my plans were a bit too ambitious, and time got away from me.  I'm okay with it because it's still been a great summer, and it's not officially over until mid-September.

It's been a slower than usual book week, but I did discover a bag of books that apparently got separated from my BEA haul.  I consider this unexpected surprise a reward for my recent book reorganizing efforts.

BEA is the gift that keeps on giving for you! I really enjoyed The Cursed and have been interested in Juliet's Nurse. I need to download Another Summer. The blurb looks definitely makes it look like my kind of book! Enjoy your new reads!
