How was your August reading month? Mine was great! I read eight books (not included in my wrap up photo is Enmity by C.K. Robertson, which I read as an eBook) and I can honestly say I enjoyed them all. I gave a few five star ratings and I became obsessed with Tricia Levenseller’s Daughter of the Pirate King duology! I finished Daughter of the Siren Queen this morning, and I don’t even know if I can write a review for it. I loved the book so much that I feel if I were to sit down and attempt to review it, all I’d be able to write would be an endless string of heart-eyes emojis. In case you missed them, here are the reviews I wrote for all eight of my reads this month:
While I’m very happy with the number of books I read in August, I think I might need to add a bit more variety to my September line up. Of the eight books I read last month, all of them were written by women and seven are YA. To spice things up a bit this month, I’m hoping to read at least one book by a male author (though I must admit, I don’t have any on my TBR) and more of a mix of different age grades. As an adult, I’ve never read a middle grade book, maybe now might be a great time to give one a try! I’m also a little disappointed by how few review books I read this month – I was aiming to read one book that I was given for review for every one book I chose myself. Unfortunately, only two of the books I finished in August are review books. However, of my current three reads, two are books I was provided with in exchange for an honest review (The Girl Who Fell and Queendom of the Seven Lakes). Do you have any plans for your September TBR? While I have a rough idea of what I’d like to read, I don’t enjoy sticking to a strict TBR, I’m much more of a mood reader.
