I’m here to do a very late Wrap-up for the month of August (obviously) and I just realized that my last Wrap-up was back in May, which just shows how I’m a really bad blogger. But anyways, August had been really good to me because I managed to read a few books this month!
So yay for that, and enough of my blabbering… here’s my August Wrap-up!
I have only read five books this month which is definitely not a lot but I’m still proud of it because I’ve been to a dreadful reading slump for the last two months and I was only able to finish ONE book (I think) during that time.
Fortunately, I’m still ahead of my reading schedule, according to my Goodreads Reading Challenge and I’m at 77% already.
So here are the books I read last August:
- The Museum of Heartbreak by Meg Leder (★★★☆☆)
- What’s a Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne (★★★★★)
- Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley (★★★★☆)
- You Know Me Well by Nina LoCour & David Levithan (★★★★☆)
- Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Parts One and Two (★★★★☆)
As you guys may have noticed, I haven’t posted any reviews for any of these books but don’t worry I will be posting them soon! Well, except for my review for the Cursed Child because I really can’t put to words my feelings for this book and just can’t write a decent review. My feelings are still conflicted, I loved and hated it at the same time. It made me cry, laugh, frustrated, and all the feelings at once and that is all I could really say.
So for the other four books, just watch out for my reviews. (winks)
Yes, I know I have been so low on blog posts for the last few months (sighs). I haven’t done any tags or awards lately, and I’ve seen/read a lot of new interesting tags around here. Maybe, I’ll do one soon? Anyways, I only managed to publish two blog posts this month. YES ONLY TWO, I’M A BAD BLOGGER, I KNOW.
So I’m definitely aiming to post more this month and for the upcoming months, hopefully. I’m not going to make any more excuses (if you want to read my excuses just read my Genie Shares post!) and just really, really, really try my best to read and write as much as I can.
This is like my TBR list for September, but I can’t promise that I’ll stick to this list because I am really a moody and impulsive reader, so I might read an entire different selection of books!
But I’ll try my real best to read these books this month:
- Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon (because I’m craving for contemporaries and this sounds like a good one)
- Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli (I have heard a lot of good things about this book, and I really don’t know why I haven’t read it yet!)
- P.S. I Like You by Kasie West (another contemporary from one of my trusted Contemporary authors)
- The Universe of Us by Lang Leav (just something to read before I go to sleep at night that would help me feel warm and fluffy inside)
- The Bone Sparrow by Zana Fraillon (I received an eARC of this book from Netgalley, and I’m really excited to read it)
As you may have noticed, most books on this list are Contemporaries which is because I missed reading them so much and I truly need to feel fluffy and light especially with school stressing me out. I still haven’t decided which one I’ll read first, but I have already started with Bone Sparrow and I’m slowly getting my way into it.
So there goes my August Wrap-up (it stinks, I know) and my version of a TBR. I will do my best to post more this month and to be a more dedicated blogger.
I hope you all had a more productive reading and blogging month, tell me all about it on the comments! I haven’t read a lot of August wrap-ups yet so you can leave a link of your Wrap-up at the comments (only if you want to!) and I’ll check them out.
Have you guys read any of the books I’ve mentioned in this post? Or are you also planning on reading any of the books on my list? Let’s talk about them.
May we all have a wonderful and productive September! Happy reading and blogging to all, and thanks for reading.
Please do leave any comments, thoughts, messages, reactions, and/or suggestions! Thank you for reading.
Until next time,
