"Don't look in that mirror, it's absolutely furious!"

 Wherein Jack says Good Bye

 No, not good bye to you all. But to summer. 

 I woke up this morning to the sound of pattering rain, a sound I've been hearing more and more over the past few weeks. Only today was different. The clouds were darker, the air held hints of winter on the breeze. Even if a couple nice days sneak in with dazzling appearances of sunshine, summer is officially over in the state were winter loves to come and stay as long as possible.

 Last year I listed the books I read over the summer. I've decided to keep it as a tradition and go again this year.


 Some I cannot list because they were beta reads, and I don't have permission to talk about them or name their titles. But one trilogy was so good and left me shocked at the ending. Then another had me crying for half an hour.

  Scottish cousins, mishaps, Archie, Mac. I've had this one on my to read list for years, I am sorry I didn't get to it sooner now, though it was perfect for this summer. I loved it.

 I read this one because I make Oz references in my newest book. It wasn't what I was expecting, but I enjoyed it. It was my first book journey into Oz, and I plan to return soon.

 I read other books my Molly, even her newest one, Resistance. While I enjoyed this one, I didn't enjoy it as much as her fantasy series. Though I am not sorry I read this one.

 I recently reviewed this one. It wasn't my favourite, but not bad. Just wasn't really my type I believe.

 A brother story. I loved it and wanted more. Sadly, there is no more with Ross and Travis, which means I will need to reread it.

 LOVED the first one, and adored this one just as much. Stefan Bachmann is one of my top favourite Authors.

 This one had a Narnia feel to it. I loved it. I was thrilled to have the honour to read and review it.

 A Cinderella Beta read retelling. I wasn't sure about it, but in the end I decided I liked it. Even though I'm not crazy about the Cinderella story.

 More Cinderella retellings, A couple of them made me re-evaluate my thoughts on the story. I can now say I like the story of Cinderella.

 The last book I read before fall hit. While there are some things I didn't like, I did like the overall story but am glad I am reading the rest of the series with a friend of mine.

 And there it is. As I said, a shorter list then last year, but I am hoping to make up for it by reading more this fall. I'm already off to a better start.

 Now it is your turn. What did you read this summer?

 I am going to leave you now. I have things to do, like watch The Winter Soldier. So there.

 Quote is from 12, because I like quoting him.




  1. That's still a lot of books.
    Summer hasn't lost its hold here, but at least it's cooler now.

  2. I read a lot more books this summer than I thought I would. My favorites were Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson, 5 Glass Slippers, The Handbook of Dragon Slayers by Merrie Haskell, Ender's Shadow by Orson Scott Card, and Storm Front by Jim Butcher.

  4. If you liked Eight Cousins, you should read the sequel, Rose in Bloom.
    I've been wanting to read Five Glass Slippers, but there's a few other books I need to finish first.

  5. It can't decide whether or not it's fall here. The weekdays are cloudy and drear, but the weekends keep perking up (just in time to go hiking or swimming or some other delightful activity). Why can't winter just arrive? Winter and snow.
