August Wrap-Up

I guess I had such a book hangover that I didn’t read as many books this month. Maybe it was the Texas heat but I just felt so rundown and blah. However September is calling my name! It’s the official start of FOOTBALL people!!! I love it! Plus it also means that fall/winter is coming which are my favorite times of the year. I’m so over this heat, I swear I live in the wrong part of the country. Any who! Now it’s about that time to share what I’ve read, bought, and received from publishers so here we go…
