August 2020 Wrap Up

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.

August 2019 Wrap Up

This month was a good reading month for the number of books I read. However I didn’t like that many of the books I read which was really disappointing. I was also supposed to be reading books for N.E.W.T’s readathon and I only read one book out of the seven I was supposed to read which is kind of disappointing. I won’t be doing a wrap up post for the N.E.W.T’s for this reason.

Overall I read 5 books this month and I’m one book away from completing my reading goal for the year which I’m excited about.

Truthwitch (The Witchlands, #1)

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard: ★★★★★

This was one of the books that I picked to read for the N.E.W.T’s and I really enjoyed it. I’m hoping to get to the sequels soon.

Grim Lovelies (Grim Lovelies, #1)

Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd: ★★

This book was alright. It’s not something I particularly enjoyed but I didn’t hate it.
