What I’ve Been Reading – Summer Edition

I have a confession to make….I’ve not done a very good job of logging all the books I’ve read since my last What I’ve Been Reading post (which was too long ago in February…ahem). I like to keep track of all the books I read throughout the year. But the last several months, I was trying to pre-read a number of children’s books and I just plain ‘ole forgot to write them on my reading log. And then, time passed and I forgot to write down other books I was reading. Nice job Karen! LOL Anyway…..here’s a look at some of the books I’ve read since February…although I am likely forgetting a title or two or three…..
