'Bye 'Bye Summer: Plans for My Blog

Okay...summer has finally come to an end for me and I go back to work at the school tomorrow *tear*. This has been the first summer where I actually got to relax and enjoy my time off, and most of it is because I found the book blogging community.

Now I go back to my hectic schedule: working at the school Monday through Friday, Tutoring after school Monday through Thursday for 3.5 hours each day, and start going to rehearsal 6-10 hours a week for November's belly dance annual show. So what does that mean for my blog?

I have no idea since I just started blogging this June. But this is what I have planned:

  1. I will participate in the weekly memes as best I can. If I don't do it for a certain week, that's okay. It's not the end of the world (that's what I tell myself).
  2. TBR Reduction Thursdays will be on hold for the month of September and maybe half of October.
  3. September (and maybe half of October) will be Harry Potter month. I plan to finish reading the series, which is the reason TBR Reduction is on hold.
  4. I will be reading a story each week from my Complete Works of H.P. Lovecraft. My goal is to post a review every Sunday until I finish with the massive book.

Books/Stories I plan to read for September:
The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb by Melanie Benjamin (reading)
Battle Royale by Koushun Takami
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling (I already started)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
"The Beast in the Cave" by H.P. Lovecraft
"The Alchemist" by H.P. Lovecraft
"The Tomb" by H.P. Lovecraft
"Dagon" by H.P. Lovecraft

Possible books for September (most likely October):
The Taking by Erin McCarthy
Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore
Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
Juliet by Anne Fortier

This is a lot of books that I want to read and I doubt that I'll get to most of them. Wish me luck!
