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.
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
Soul Corrupted by Lisa Gail Green – 2.5/5 stars
Tales from the Back Row by Amy Odell – 3.5/5 stars
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo – 4/5 stars
Frostbite by Lynn Rush – 2/5 stars
3 Graphic Novels
Young Terrorists, Volume 1: Pierce The Veil by Matt Pizzolo, Amancay Nahuelpan – 4/5 stars
