August Books

The best part about not being in school anymore is reading whatever I want.  This summer has been wonderful for that.  I am been on a big reading kick lately and hoping to share some good books.  This post is a bit late, but I have been strapped for time lately.

Here is what I read in August:

Percy Jackson and the Olympians series
Really great young adult series about Greek mythology.  I don't know much about this subject but the books were still really good and entertaining.  Some of the writing gets a bit corny but it is made for young teenagers, so I let it pass.  But if you read it I just wanted to make you aware of it.  

I wrote about this book a bit more on 2nd Green Revolution.  I mainly skimmed the book but it was still interesting that parts I read.  And made me re-think my meat consumption.    

The Fourth Hand
I love just able anything from John Irving.  Seriously, he is a wonderful writer, one of my favorites.  With that said, this is a good book but not one of my favorites from him.  So I would recommend another from him, such as A Prayer for Owen Meany or Hotel New Hampshire or The World According to Garp.

Hopefully I can keep reading just as much the rest of the fall, but with little time it is hard to tell.

Any book recommendations? 


  1. I want to read The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Crossed (the second book in The Matched Triolgy -- if you enjoyed The Hunger Games you'll enjoy these) and The Uglies series. Seriously, I have an addiction to YA fiction.

    1. I have an addiction too. I have read Being a Wallflower before but thanks for the other recommendations!
