If you want to see how I’m doing with BEA 2015 books check here.

August 1: I read a lot in July (12 books) but it was kind of a miserable failure in terms of sticking to my list. Oops. This month there are lot of BEA ones I want to get to so I’m just going to try to be a little less strict and see how that goes. Usually my “books on deck” follows a pretty strict formula but for this month, it’s just books I really really want to read right now.

August 2: Four days into the month and starting my second month. The voice in Hello, Goodbye and Everything in Between is a little distancing after the first person of The Accident Season but I love Jen E. Smith’s book so I’m sure it’ll be fine.

August 9: Well I had a total disconnect with the Smith book and with Never Always Sometimes. The Rose and the Beast was weird but not bad. Lair of Dreams is next.

August 12: I’m already on page 200 of Lair of Dreams so I might even be able to fit in another book or two after I finish it if I keep up this pace!

August 14: Have read 60% of Lair of Dreams! Want to count it as two books!

August 17: Um hi Lair of Dreams was amazing! Also reading The Marvels at home because I can’t handle carrying another 600+ page book around.

August 18: I finally made a dent in my BEA books and got to read a lot of good ones. I have to get back to some review and backlist titles come September though!

  1. I’m reading Walk on Earth a Stranger this month, too! Fingers crossed we both love it. I purchased Ink and Bone and will definitely be reading it asap.
    Hope you have a wonderful August!


    1. I didn’t love Carson’s first series (too much religion for me even if it was a made up one) but I’m really, really excited about Walk on Earth a Stranger. *also crosses fingers*
