book of the month

I hate to do this... I hate to skip over something or not be a part of a project completely... But I have to admit that I didn't read the September Book Club Bloggers Book of the Month. I know, you're disappointed in me, aren't you?

I promise I meant to read it! But I kept putting it off because it didn't seem that interesting and I wasn't really looking forward to reading another young adult novel (The Giver was great and I used to say it was one of my favorites, but after rereading it in August, I realized I now yearn for something more adult and in-depth.)

I also got the due date for the review mixed up, so I would've been late anyway... But the day I finally went to the library to get it, it of course wasn't there! I know, I know, it's my fault for waiting so long and it's no excuse! At first I was going to read it and then write the review later, but now I've decided not to. I keep checking the status online and it's still checked out! Plus, it doesn't seem fair to the people who finished it on time and now I feel it will just overlap with this month's book.

So, I'm letting myself off the hook just this once. Please don't be mad!

No worries, feel free to pick & choose what books you'd like to read, as your schedule allows. Will you be participating this month for Interpreter of Maladies?

Good for you. I'm so bad at letting myself off the hook for things!
