We’re still in the middle of summer, but when July comes to a close, I always feel the rush of days and weeks, hurtling towards fall. And even though fall is my favorite season, my house will be a little less full in a month…children leaving the nest.
I’m also in the middle of my library’s summer reading challenge. This year, it’s called A Universe of Stories, created to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing. So I’ve been reading and listening to books outside my usual genres, to complete different categories of the challenge. I listened to two audio books on my walks and I managed to squeeze in a couple books of my own choice, too!
Check out my reviews here:
I was happy to meet a new (to me) indie author, Jennifer S. Alderson. If you haven’t met Jennifer yet, please stop by and say hello!
If you are a self-published or indie author and would like to be featured, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I also posted and author update for Geoffrey M. Cooper. His new medical thriller, Nondisclosure, is available now:
I also did a little dreaming this month, wishing for unlimited time to read some best sellers and some classics.
There have been more Friday Fiction shenanigans in a new chapter of “A Man and His Phone.” Feel free to jump into this little series and relive the drama of the twenty-something dating world!
I like to think about grammar and new word uses – can you relate to that? Here’s a post about the more recent trend of the word “relatable.”
After reading Those People by Louise Candlish, I thought about all the despicable characters in books I have read, and then I made a list!
I watched The Right Stuff movie as part of the Universe of Stories challenge. Even though there was a lot of hype about the movie when it was released in 1983, I had never seen it!
And last, I was happy to be featured on Norah Colvin’s blog in her special School Days, Reminiscences feature. Be sure to visit Norah’s blog below:
Did you have a good month? What was the best book you read? For me, I’d say Sounds Like Titanic.
Thanks for visiting – come back soon!
