August 2017 Wrap Up

I participated in both the Make Me Read It Readathon and ARC August which definitely pushed me to read more than normal. Even with a bit of traveling, I managed to read 13 books in August.  I also made it through half of another.

Here is what I read.



The Hollow Girl by Hilary Monahan  4  1/2 stars  (arc)

Geekerella by Ashley Poston  5 stars

History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera  5 stars

Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller  4 stars (closer to  4 1/2)  (arc)



The Third Kiss by Kat Colmer  4 stars (arc)

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart  3  1/2 stars

The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts by K.C. Tansley  5 stars

The Girl Who Saved Ghosts by K.C. Tansley  4  1/2 stars (arc)



We All Fall Down by Natalie D. Richards  4 stars (arc)

Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel  5 stars (arc)

They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera  5 stars (arc)



Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows  4  1/2 stars (arc)

Boomerang Boyfriend by Chris Cannon  3  1/2 stars (arc)

An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson  (arc, still reading)


It’s hard to pick a favorite for the month since everything I read was really good.  But I would have to say Geekerella, History Is All You Left Me, and Black Bird of the Gallows were probably my top three.


I purchased way too many books in August and received a lot of digital arcs.  I had to make two separate book haul posts.  August was also my first full month blogging.  I already hit 200 followers and I’ve enjoyed getting to know some of you better.   I also started signing up for blog tours which was a bit overwhelming at first, but now I really like being more involved.


I have no idea yet what I’ll read in September.  I generally don’t make a monthly TBR and just chose whatever feels right.


How was your August?   What was your favorite read for the month?

  1. I read 13 books in August too only because I was away for 2 weeks so I had lots of reading time. My favourite read of the month was Rattle by Fiona Cummins. It looks like you read lots is super things I’ll definitely be checking some of these out ☺
