Taylor’s August Wrap Up & September TBR

I didn’t realize until the last few days of this month but I stuck in a horrible reading slump for 99% of August. I think I read so much this whole year that I just burned out. Pair that with not having a lot of time to read, I found a million excuses to not read this month. I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t read all the books that I wanted this month but I feel like taking most of a month off from reading as rejuvenated my reading. I’m very excited to tackle my TBR next month! So here’s what I did read for the month of August.

9 Books

Seriously Mum, What’s an Alpaca? by Alan Parks – 3/5 stars

Hunter by Mercedes Lackey – DNF (But I plan on re-reading)

Alive by Scott Sigler – 5/5 stars

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – 4/5 stars

Rust: The Longest War by Jonathan Waldman – 3/5 stars

    OMG You’re going to LOVE Crown of Midnight. So many books on your lists I have yet to get to. I’ll be picking up the Mistborn trilogy hopefully in November or December. My wrap up will be up soon!

    I know exactly how you feel about reading so much that you just feel burned out from it. I actually think that is what is going on with me and why most of the books I’ve read in August I didn’t really enjoy that much. I think I just need a little break from reading so much and hopefully it’ll get me back into loving my books more!

    The 9 you did read sound really great though! I am really looking forward to reading Alive, Siege and Storm, and Illuminae.

    Liked your “Rust” review. And your hair.

    If you haven’t the “Saga” graphic-novel series by Vaughan & someone female — well, you should.

  • Taylor

    Oh, I love Saga! I’m hoping to pick up vol. 5 next week!
