Monthly Rewind ~ August 2017

Posted September 1, 2017 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Monthly Rewind / 27 Comments

Monthly Rewind is exactly what it sounds like. A post to summarize the past month: Books read, my quick takes on them, top posts of the month, what I have been watching and what’s coming up. I will be linking up to Feed Your Fiction Addiction’s Monthly Wrap Up Round Up.

Break from Books
  • August was a really hectic month. Lots of running around and appointments and calls.
  • The end of the month had much nicer weather and we spent some time outside without being super hot.
  • I watched a lot of TV. Most recently binge watching old seasons of Project Runway.
  • We did a lot of back to school shopping for clothes and shoes. I think we’re all set now.
  • My house started to get back into shape after all the work done in July and the beginning of this month.

Tentative September TBR

What’s Ahead

School starts this month for my kids. I think I am ready? Maybe? We also might take the kids to their first Yankee game and my first in a really long time. Apple picking will happen and I am ready with some recipes! Also new TV!! I am so excited fro my shows to come back.

How was your August? What was your favorite book from the month?

  1. I love that meme, it is so true! Even though I miss my kids like crazy, it is nice to have the house to myself again and get it cleaned and organized after the summer madness. I’ve been spending a lot of time going through things and organizing, which believe it or not has been fun. I’ve also been watching a lot of TV, probably too much but it was so hot this summer that it was too hot to be outside unless you were swimming so we had Netflix binges a lot more than normal around here. Oh well. 😉 Have a great weekend Grace and I hope September is great for all of us!

    Glad to hear your house is finally getting back to normal after updates.

    I’m going to try Without Merit and Sugar Pine Trail, too. Crossing my fingers they are good! 🙂

    It’s been so long since I read a CoHo book. I really need to fix that. I really like Wicked Like a Wildfire. The writing was gorgeous and I loved the setting. I thought Nothing was adorable. This is a younger YA book (they are 15), but it’s the friendship and family bonds that made me smile tons. Plus, some of their ramblings were hilarious. I hope you love them all.

  4. Looks like you had a good reading month, Grace. Go you! I’m slowly climbing out of my reading slump so I’m hoping that the fall season will bring about cooler temps so that I can snuggle under the covers and get my read on. 🙂

    Awww, your kids are all in school now? That’s awesome. They’re going to have so much fun!

    I hope September is good to you!

    Now I have to read A Monster Calls as I’m a reader who loves emotional books. I always read the book before seeing the movie (with the few exceptions, such as Star Wars and Lord of the Rings). My favorite August book was When Dimple Met Rishi.
