September 2017 Wrap-Up & Favorites

August 2017 Wrap-Up & Favorites

So… what a month. At first, it had been perfect. I went to New York (a work-related event) and then I traveled to Scotland with the family. I couldn’t ask for more. I even read some great books during my trips. But then I went home to Barcelona and the day after I arrived, the attack happened. So sad for everyone who was killed or injured. I hope this era of terror comes to an end as soon as possible… Anyway, here’s how I spent my reading month.
