We are back home from a wonderful week-long, late-summer beach vacation. As I wash the salt of my skin and the sand out of my hair, it is time to recap my summer reading and looking ahead to fall.
In June, I signed up to read 10 Books of Summer. I only read five of them, although I am two-thirds through The House of Mirth and have started The Lacuna.

In September, I plan to finish The House of Mirth and The Lacuna, and I signed up for the read-along of The Haunting of Hill House, hosted by The Estella Society.

Even though the first week of September is already over, work will be busy, and there are two kids in school now, I think four books is an easy goal.
