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

What did you read this month? What are you planning to read next month? Link me your wrap up and/or TBR post/video!
Okay, So, this month was awful for me. I feel like horrible about it but I read a pretty big book this month, so….it wasn’t so bad.
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
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.
The Wrath and The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh ( OUR AUGUST BOOK OF THE MONTH)
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
The Girl At Midnight by Melissa Grey
Hey Sunshine by Tia Giacalone (already 50 pages in)
Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets of Life by Benjamin Arlire Saenz
Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
So my favorite of this month was :
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. LOVED this book.
And I think my most anticipated for this month might be :
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saez. This book has had AMAZING reviews and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Hey guys, a little late getting into my wrap-up and TBR but that’s okay. My computer was just gone for like a week and a half. My poor baby. Anyway this is what I’ve read in June :
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Mass 5/5
Shatter Me (second half) by Tahereh Mafi 5/5
Golden by Melinda Michaels (Books sent by author for review) 3.75/5
Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix by J.K. Rowling 4/5
Rat Queens Vol.1 Sass and Sorcery by Kurtis J Wiebe and Roc Upchurch 5/5
Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling 5/5
–Half of Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas was also read.
My favorite read this month I have to say was a tie sadly between ACOTAR and HP6
So as you can see it seems like a pretty normal month for me, maybe even a better month than usual. And I’m super excited to get into July. Thus being said, here’s my TBR for July!
–2nd Half of Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Seraphina by Rachel Heartman
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell(this has been on my TBR for Forever!)
The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
Hey Sunshine by Tia Giacalone
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
What’s going on with your TBR? Have any books that you’ve had on there for a while or just can’t seem to get off the list? What are you reading this July?
ALSO! If you guys have any books you’d like to read, Taylor and I are thinking up ideas for our August read along, give us some suggestions and we’ll pick something at the end of the week!
I say this every month, but I read a lot more books then I thought I would this month. I think I’ve found a really good system and I’ve been managing my time really well. And, like every month, I hope I can continue this reading pace for the rest of the year.

What did you read in May? What are planning on reading in June? Link us your wrap ups and TBRs in the comments so we can check them out!
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?
