I cannot believe the end of summer 2021 is here! I hit 100 books and as of today (8/29/2021), I have read 112 books so far this year. I only read four books in August, but that’s because I was in. . .Santa Monica and Los Angeles.
I was cleared to go on the trip (I’d been sick the days before we left), so my experience was not the best because I was still sick when we got back home. Luckily, I am better today. There are so many amazing bookstores in LA:
- The Ripped Bodice
- Book Soup
- Barnes and Noble at the Grove (I do love a good Barnes and Noble.)
- Skylight Books
- BookMonster – Santa Monica
- Wings of Ebony – got a signed copy!!
- Raybearer – paperback and it’s so shiny!
- How We Fall Apart – my name is in the acknowledgements, or rather, SolaceinReading is!
When I came home, I also found an early finished copy of A Clash of Steel by C.B. Lee waiting for me (for Colored Pages Tours – my post will be up on Friday, September 10) AND an ARC of The Bronzed Beasts by Roshani Chokshi!!! TBB is so good, it made me cry.
I’m mostly looking forward to September – I have been sick for a while and now know what it is, so that is so great.
Fall is my favorite. . .
The leaves! The chill in the air, that sense of a light rain, my birthday, family birthdays, Halloween, school. . .I am going to be a senior but fall just makes me feel so calm. I want to make a most anticipated releases post but don’t have the energy right now.
