Well August turned out to be a little brat. I was expecting the last month of summer to be relaxed and not busy. I was SO wrong. Between my little sister being in the hospital (Lyme Disease), my grandma dying, my mom having kidney stone complications (she’s recovering from the surgery now), watching my nephew, and work being busy because of vacations and moving our office to a new location – CRAP it as hectic.
Anyways, so I ended up reading 3 books and 38 issues of comics. I am tentatively optimistic about September – my mom and nephew are still in town at least for the next couple weeks before moving to NYC to be with my little sister, so I’ll be baby-sitting more again. But who knows, maybe after that things will calm down.
From left to right…
- Time Salvager by Wesley Chu – Wesley Chu’s Tao trilogy is absolutely awesome, so I’m really excited to dig into his new book. I am so in the mood for some good, intense sci-fi.
- Secondhand Souls by Christopher Moore – NEW CHRISTOPHER MOORE BOOK! And it’s a sequel to A Dirty Job, which is my second favorite of his books. I am hella excited to dive into this.
- Concrete Park: Volume 1 by Tony Puryear and Erika Alexander – I forget how I heard about this, but it takes place on planet Oasis – where poor young people are shipped to mine for resources, which is a hopeless endeavor since nothing grows there. I also read articles that this was originally developed as a sci-fi show/film and pitched to a Hollywood studio exec who wanted to change the race of all of the characters. The creators decided not to go that route (thank goodness) and developed the story as a comic instead.
So that’s all I’m putting on my list this month. I have a lot of stuff left over from my pile last month that I’d still like to get to, so I’m purposely keeping my TBR post this month light.
What are you excited to read this month?
