What I Read: September


Hey! I'm only half a month late with this post! And I read twice as many books in September as in August...except that I only read one book in August. :) I'm sorry, you guys. Life is crazy right now. And I don't feel the same way about this blog as I used to, ever since Photobucket caused me to lose all of my photos. Does anyone even read this anymore? I'm thinking about just starting fresh, but more on that later. Here's what I read in September:

The Trumpet of the Swan, by E.B. White. Somehow, even though Charlotte's Web has been one of my favorite books since 2nd grade, I made it through childhood without ever reading this one. I liked it, but I didn't love it. I think it got better as it went along. But it was like it couldn't figure out what it wanted to be! Sometimes it was serious, all descriptive nature writing, and then suddenly it's absurd slapstick comedy. I just don't know.

The Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex, by Sheila Wray Gregoire. This was by far the best of these type of books that I've read since getting engaged. More details in my review, but it was just what I was hoping for and exactly what I needed!


I also had one DNF this month. After "reading" this book from the first week of September to basically the first week of October and only progressing about 40 pages, I decided to give up on it. It was a middle grade book I'd bought cheaply years ago, on Book Outlet or somewhere, because the cover was cute and it sounded interesting. But I'm just not feeling it right now so off it goes to a new home, and I don't really regret it. :)

  1. I still eagerly read every post and have done for years!! (I'm just not a commenter usually.). Your blog is consistently one of my favorites. That being said, the same exact thing happened to me with my blog when I got married. Real life kind of crowded it out! And that's totally fine - we understand ;). But if you continue posting I for one will be very happy!! :D

  3. I love reading your blog! I can imagine how busy you are though, so it's very understandable that this takes a backseat. If you feel inspired/have the time to blog more in the future, I'll definitely be here. :)

    Also, I need to reread The Trumpet of the Swan - it's always (along with Stuart Little) beaten Charlotte's Web in my mental ranking of E.B. White books, but I haven't read them all together as an adult. That could be interesting. :D

  4. I still read, but I'm terrible about commenting! I've loved Trumpet of the Swan since I first read it, although I haven't read it as an adult.
