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?
