It seems like monthly wrap ups are the only blog posts I’m consistently writing. This is kind of late though and that has to do a lot of with the fact that I don’t currently have a laptop. It’s in a shop right now and I’m hoping that it can be fixed. If it doesn’t I might buy a new one or I might wait until my birthday next year.
I read five books this month but I still haven’t caught up to my reading goal for the year which is really annoying. I’m currently three books behind and I’m hoping that this holiday weekend I can finally catch up!
The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury: ★★★
This was a cute standalone that I listened to while I was driving to and from work. I have a review of it in progress and hopefully I publish it soon!
The Dragon Republic by R.F Kuang: ★★★★
I loved this book so much!! I honestly think it left me in a slump. I gave TPW three stars because I thought it was complicated for me to understand but when I read TDR I was blown away. It all came together for me suddenly and I loved it so much.
The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E Pearson: ★★★★
I finally finished this series and I’m super proud of myself for finishing it. I’ve had the whole series on my TBR for so long and I’m glad I get to cross it off.
Gideon the Ninth by Tamysn Muir: ★★★
I have thoughts about this book. I liked it but I also didn’t like it because it was kind of confusing. I definitely want to read the second book but I feel I’m not going to like it that much…
Jade City by Fonda Lee: ★★★★
I just finished the second book in this series and I absolutely loved it. This series is definitely one of my new faves, and I can’t recommend it enough.
So those were the five books I read in the month of August. I’ve already finished two books in September which I’m really happy about. I’m hoping to finish a third book tonight but we’ll see. How was your reading in August?
