August 2011 Rundown

So, generally this is where I tell you all about how many books I’ve been reading and all those reviews I’ve been writing. However, between a funeral, family visiting from down south, starting school again, getting sick, etc etc I’ve once again been neglecting the blog a bit and my reading has been seriously lacking.

As for what I’ve read recently, I read and reviewed Wherever You Go by Joan Leegant which was phenomenal. I also read Bonk by Mary Roach and The Purity Myth by Jessica Valenti, both of which were great and are permanently in the category of books I’m going to gush over in conversation. In addition, there have been the obligatory romance novels that I always get sucked into.

I have a few reviews coming up as well. The Purity Myth and Bonk reviews can both be expected shortly. There is also my review of The Electric Church by Jeff Somers that has been half written for about a month and a half now, and I’m planning on finishing that shortly as well.

As for what I’m reading now and the books I’ve got in the future… I still have The Artificial Ape to finish. My recent mental state just hasn’t been quite right for that type of reading and I’m looking forward to jumping into it again. I’m also reading Bedbugs by Ben Winters which I received for review from the amazing Quirk Books.

A recent trip to the library also landed me a copy of Sex and Sensuality in the Ancient World by Giulia Sissa and Paradise Lust by Brook Wilensky-Lanford which is about people who have tried to find the “real” Garden of Eden. I’m looking forward to those as well as the two books that were finally delivered today; Never Enough by Lauren Dane, the last book in her Brown Siblings series and A Billion Wicked Thoughts by Ogi Ogas and Sai Gaddam both of which I am beyond excited about. So keep a lookout for my thoughts on those as well.
