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. There were a million things eating my brain all the time, distracting me from other things, so it was good to check off a bunch of things from my list. There's still more but for now, I'm in a good place (until it creeps up again of course).  This and next week, we are going to be busy with back-to-school stuff. Since my daughter is moving to the public school this year (first gr

Top Ten Books on my Fall 2013 TBR List


I love this week's topic at Top Ten Tuesday. I used to make TBR lists quite often in the past but I stopped doing it because I don't really seem to get through my lists. But that doesn't take the fun out of the actual list making process.

The Fall releases...



There are so many of these books I'm excited about for so many reasons! I'm totally digging the Unwind trilogy by Neal Shusterman, and UnSouled is going to the final book in that series. I can't wait to see how he plans to wrap it all up. I'm also glad that the wait time to UnSouled is much less compared to how long we had to wait between the 1st and 2nd books.

Did you hear that Bridget Jones is making a comeback this Fall? She is probably the first light women fiction book heroine I met, so I'm looking forward to reading Mad About the Boy. And then Rachel Joyce's Perfect. After loving The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, I cannot wait to read this one.


And The rest...



Some of these books have been on my I-will-read-this-year list since January. I know many of you have loved The Wednesday Sisters, plus I loved Clayton's The Four Ms. Bradwells. I really want to read Band of Brothers, but part of me is worried that it will fade in comparison to the miniseries, which I plan to rewatch after reading this book.

As for MetaMaus, I loved Maus and still plan on rereading it some time, but I want to dig into MetaMaus first. Having just started watching The Walking Dead a few months ago, I'm looking forward to reading that book as well. The show is one of the best I've watched so far, so I expect the books will be too.

Oh my gosh! I canNOT believe I forgot UNSOULED. I love Neal Shusterman, this series in particular, so I'm super anxious to see where the story goes.


Happy TTT!
