August Wrap Up

09:00


August is at an end and that means summer is nearly over! Kids will be going back to school, parents will be relieved and autumn is soon to come. I for one cannot wait.

August was a pretty busy month for me. I turned 25, I got ENGAGED (my boyfriend proposed on my birthday and it was really sweet), I went to a friends wedding, met up with some friends and read a bit.

My reading for August hasn't been as good as it was in July but I still got through a few books. I didn't achieve my August reading goals though, but thats okay.


Books I Read in August

    

    


- Theatrical was a cute contemporary read all about family, friendship and love all set within the magic of a theatre. The writing style within this book was so vivid that I felt like I was there touching the props, sensing excitement and anticipation from the backstage crew and actors. A magical feeling indeed. If you love theatre this is a book for you.


- The Island was a book that I really wanted to enjoy after hearing all the hype, however, it fell short for me. I thought the initial idea behind the book had great potential but it just didn't succumb to it for me. It was pretty predictable in places and I couldn't connect to the protagonist, Link, the way he acted just wasn't for me. It's a shame and I was rather disappointed.

- Crooked Kingdom is the second book in the Six of Crows Duology and OH MY GOD! What a book to end it on! This book was literally AMAZING and I can't fault it at all. This world and the characters that Leigh Bardugo has created are outstanding in every single way and I am just in love. It did destroy me but that's okay.


- Vox was an outstanding read that opened my mind and awakened my inner feminist. The concept was so complex and it really did make you think. The only thing I didn't like was how rushed the ending seemed and that there were a few unanswered questions left by the time that came around. Despite this it was a gripping book.

September Reading Goals

In September I definitely want to read 4 - 6 books and also get through some of the ARC's I have been given. I have created a spreadsheet of books I need to read for review so hopefully that will make me more organised.
