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

Stephanie’s August Wrap Up and TBR

Hey Guys! So I did PHENOMENAL this month with reading. I was super surprised with myself! I read 8 books. And I want to read almost the same next month! I know it sounds a bit ambitious but who cares? I’m one book ahead of schedule for my reading challenge (which I’ve never done before) so I feel super positive about it.

So yeah, three books. But, THREE VERY GOOD books.

Anyway, I felt like I fell into a big slump last month, so this month I already feel the want to read growing. I put down a very ambitious 6 books on my TBR and here they are.

Stephanie’s June Wrap Up and July TBR

Taylor’s June Wrap Up & July TBR

I feel like I read a lot less this month then I did last month, even though it’s not that much less. Don’t get me wrong, I did pretty good but I’m a tiny bit disappointed. Oh well. I have a good feeling about July.

Stephanie’s Monthly Wrap Up & TBR March 2015

March 2015

So this month was kind of crazy for me, so I only read 4 books, sadly. I’m finding myself having trouble reading more than four books a month which is a bit frustrating, I’d like to get into audiobooks but I haven’t been able to, I’m not used to them yet, and I’ve started buying more books on Kindle so maybe that’ll help!

Either way, these are the books I read this month:

Harry Potter and The Prizoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling – 5/5
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab (Our Book of The Month for March!) – 5/5
An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir  – 3.5/5
The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty’s Prince by Serena Valentino – 3/5

So I need to find a way so get more books read, I don’t understand why/how I let the month slip by without reading so much so if you guys have any solutions, please let me know. But, without any further ado, here’s my April TBR!

Egg & Spoon by Gregory Macguire (Our April Book of The Month!)
Dare To Dream by Carys Jones  (This book was given to me by Carys for a read and review)
Landline by Rainbow Rowell
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

What are you guys planning on reading this April?
