August Wrap Up!

Happy last day of August! Where oh where did this month go? I feel like I was just typing July’s Wrap Up post yesterday! This month I got a good deal of reading done, including every single book that was on my TBR for August! I don’t think that has happened since I started keeping track, so I’m very impressed and happy with myself!

PHYSICAL BOOKS

So I definitely read a lot fewer physical books because I wanted to really crack down on my Netgalley TBR. I really missed reading physicals books though, so September will at least be more balanced between physical and ebooks, if not more.

  1. Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1) – Laini Taylor – 5/5 stars
  2. A Curse So Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers #1) – Brigid Kemmerer – 5/5 stars
  3. Ignite the Stars (Ignite the Stars #1) – Maura Milan – 5/5 stars
  4. Fix Her Up (Hot & Hammered #1) – Tessa Bailey – 5/5 stars

EBOOKS

I managed to get my Netgalley ratio up to 50% this month by reading a bunch of the eARC’s! It would have been higher but I was also approved for more during the month 🙂

  1. Midnight Beauties (Grim Lovelies #2) – Megan Shepherd – 4/5 stars
  2. The Murder List – Hank Phillippi Ryan – 5/5 stars
  3. Eclipse the Skies (Ignite the Stars #2) – Maura Milan – 4/5 stars
  4. Realm of Knights (Knights of the Realm #1) – Jennifer Anne Davis – 4/5 stars
  5. The Weight of a Soul – Elizabeth Tammi – 4/5 stars
  6. Crown of Coral and Pearl (Crown of Coral and Pearl #1) – Mara Rutherford – 5/5 stars
  7. Tweet Cute – Emma Lord – 5/5 stars
  8. The Lady Rogue – Jenn Bennett – 3/5 stars

As you can see I managed to get a lot of really good reading done, of which I am super happy for. I’m also looking forward to what the next month will bring!

Come talk with me about your wrap up!

Happy reading, bookish friends 🙂

August TBR

The fact that it is already August is definitely blowing my mind. This month is the boyf’s and my third anniversary. We’re going to Lewes, DE to stay in the Dogfishhead Inn (we’re both really into craft beer) and we even splurged on the Romance package :). I’m excited to get some good reading done this month, though it is going to HEAVILY contain eARC’s from Netgalley! I’m very behind (my ratio is like 28%) and want to get caught up so I can be approved for more books. Outside of Netgalley, I’m going to try to fit in a few backlist physical books so I’m not just staring at my iPad all month (talk about killing your eyes). So see below for my reading plans!

Netgalley eARC’s

  1. Swipe Right For Murder – Derek Milman
  2. Midnight Beauties – Megan Shepherd
  3. The Murder List – Hank Phillippi Ryan
  4. Eclipse the Skies – Maura Milan
  5. The Weight of a Soul – Elizabeth Tammi
  6. Crown of Coral and Pearl – Mara Rutherford
  7. Tweet Cute – Emma Lord
  8. The Lady Rogue – Jenn Bennett

Physical books

  1. A Curse So Dark And Lonely – Brigid Kemmerer
  2. Strange the Dreamer – Laini Taylor

It’s a bit of an ambitious month because of the eARC’s, but I’ve found I read those faster than physical books? I’m not really sure how that works, but I’ll take it! Especially with trying to get through 8 in one month, while going away on vacation.

If you have any of these on your TBR, keep an eye out for my reviews as they come!

Happy reading, bookish fellows!
