Time for a third quarter check in. All I can say….worst reading slump of the year.
I had decided to start using an official monthly TBR list in hopes it will push me to finish books. I have a stack of about 10 books next to my bed that I started and just never seemed to finish. It was a rough slump and I’m hoping some basic organization will pull me out of it. I have a lot of catching up to do. So, without further ado, these are the books I finished in July, August, and September.
Non Fiction: 1
The good thing? I loved every single one of these books! I’m going to stick with the positive on this one.

I’m already working on my TBR for October and Non-Fiction November. Let me know if you have any suggestions!
There are some exciting changes coming to Sand Between the Pages in 2015! Don’t worry; you will still get plenty of book reviews. The new additions are designed to make the site more personal, so here is the list of changes:
1. I am back on Twitter! There is a new Contact page where you can find links to Twitter and my other social media sites. This is also where authors requesting reviews can find instructions on reaching me.
2. I have big writing goals for 2015 and I will end each month with an update post on my Works-In-Progress. This is designed to keep me motivated and give me a chance to talk writing with all of you!
3. There will be a What to Expect post at the beginning of each month. These posts are to let you know the type of reviews to expect during the month. I am definitely a mood/theme reader and I like to give you a heads up. So, without further ado…
What to Expect – JANUARY
January. Its cold, dreary, and very rainy here in Florida. I am so thankful that I do not live where it snows. I love to watch it snow. I love to ski and snow tube. I do not like to be cold. I can barely handle Florida’s winter!!!
We went snow skiing most Januarys of my childhood. My parents would pack up the old diesel Chevy Suburban and hit the road to Colorado. I spent these trips wrapped in my My Little Pony sleeping bag and my nose buried in a book. I learned during these vacations not to eat funny colored snow, that I was quite a graceful skier for such a clumsy person, and that falling snow is breath taking. I both loved and loathed these trips. See, I don’t like being cold and snow is cold. I can handle visiting but people actually CHOOSE to live in these places!!!
January finds me reminiscing about these trips and eager to read books about arctic survival. I am enthralled by people who can tough out such extreme weather. This is why I am so fascinated with both the Iditarod and the Yukon Quest dog sled races. This year I am going to keep track of both of them! (I can do stuff like that now that I am out of school)
The next two weeks will be filled with stories of arctic survival, dog sledding, and mystery. I hope you’re as excited as I am! Grab some hot chocolate and a good book and enjoy the falling snow if you can!
