Hello August, here we come | Weekly Snapshot

It's freaking August already! Of 2021.  Life I know how summer usually means a busy time for most people. It wasn't so much for me - my kids are still too little and we had some fun this summer but didn't brave outside a whole lot (maybe next year). And still, I am ready for summer to end. For one thing, stuff does slow down a little during rest of the year, and by stuff, I mean work mostly. And on the other hand, I'm ready for real school to start, so that I don't feel bad that my kids are wasting their brains, LOL.  I got to catchup with life this week and that means a great deal.

The first would be a reread, the second is a new-to-me-title that is yelling quirky at me and the third is half-read at this point and intriguing thus far.

I've been seeing Forgive Me around the blogosphere lately and I'm very curious about it. Can't wait to hear what you think. Happy readathoning!
Aw, I love to see Harry Potter books on these lists. I really want to go back and do a re-read soon. Hope you have a great weekend!

I've not done loads of reading yet either, but this readathon is very low pressure, so it's all cool.
Harry Potter is perfect for a readathon, so quick and engaging.

I always think I'm going to clear the decks for readathons but there are just always things that have to get done, aren't there? Enjoy the time you find for reading!

So true! The Harry Potter series is perfect for any readathon.

My readathon was very similar to that - but I did get some good reading done so that's good!
