August Book Roundup

September 1, 2017

It is officially September.

And I read less than half of the books on my August TBR.

I'm never going to finish.

My August TBR was about 30 books long, which would have been fine except I didn't take one major factor into account... mainly the fact that summer was ending and my free time along with it...

So, I thought I would do a little roundup of all the books I read in August 
 

 

~My August Books~

 

 

 

Total: 15 books                                            New: 12                                     Rereads: 3

 

 

5 Stars:

  • A Gathering of Shadows

  • A Darker Shade of Magic

  • The End of the Day

  • This Monstrous Thing

  • The Crimson Crown

4 Stars:

  • None

3 Stars:

  • Captive Rebel

  • The Song Rising

  • The Bone Season

  • Lord of the Flies

  • The Valiant

  • The Grey Wolf Throne

2 Stars:

  • Front Lines

  • The Mime Order

  • Flame in the Mist

  • Blackbirds

1 Star:

  • None (thank goodness)

Biggest Disappointment: Flame in the Mist... I had wanted to read this book for so long and then I could barely get myself through it.

 

Biggest Surprise: The End of the Day. I never thought I would love it as much as I did, it's now one of my new favorite books.

 

Favorite New Series: The Seven Realms series. I randomly downloaded the eBook thinking it would be a decent way to pass the time and wound up loving it. Now I have 7+ more books to read by the same author.

 

Favorite Reread: Shades of Magic series, because they are some of the best books ever. I'm still rereading the third one but I'm counting it in this anyway.

 

Best Book News: 3 new books in the same world as the Shades of Magic series. And then a fourth, new book. What's not to like?

 

Now time to write out a September TBR that I will promptly ignore because new books are just too tempting.
