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.

At the start of the month, I was stuck in a really horrible reading slump and it took almost two weeks to get out of it. I did still manage to read quite a bit.  I read a lot of 3 star books but I’m really excited about the books on my TBR.
