August Wrap-Up

August Wrap-Up

Hello fellow bookworms, so it’s been a little while! I, unfortunately, got hit by the worst bookish disease anyone can face – the dreaded book slump. I wholeheartedly blame it on my absolute binge over the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy because after that bookish event and my consecutive multiples watching sessions of the movie adaptation, I just wasn’t motivated to read… I read through the blurbs of heaps of books and couldn’t be bothered, so I ended up rereading a favourite and getting into an old school paranormal trash novel to get me out of it. I am currently book slump free…for now.

Funnily enough, thanks to the Booktubeathon, it was actually my most successful month yet! I won’t be including mini-reviews for these books if I haven’t already reviewed though this time.

Total Books Read: 15

Total Pages Read: 4,259 

While my August Wrap-Up does include the Booktubeathon books I read, you can find the 4 books I read during that readathon on my Booktubeathon Wrap-Up >HERE<.

Here are all the other books are I read in August (with their links if reviewed):

 

tatbilbTo All the Boys I’ve Loved Before Trilogy (3) by Jenny Han ★★★★★(5/5)

This trilogy includes the series title first book, PS: I Still Love You, and Always and Forever, Lara Jean. You can find my review for the series HERE.

 

 

skylarksSkylarks by Karen Gregory ★★★★☆(3.5/5)

A lovely contemporary novel which you can find my review for HERE.

 

 

 

wallbangerWallbanger by Alice Clayton ★★★★☆(3.5/5)

A hilarious romance recommended by @ambsreads which turned out to be pretty good. Also, my vote for cringiest romance cover I’ve seen to date.

 

 

fenceFence (3) by C.S. Pacat ★★★★★(5/5)

This was a gorgeous graphic novel which I read off Scribd. It counts as 3 books because I read the Volume 1, then the separate #5 and #6, I loved the whole story and it’s no doubt that I’ll keep reading them from Scribd when the inspiration strikes.

 

 

The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things (Virginia Shreves #1) by Carolyn Mackler ★★★★☆(4/5)

I was sent this novel ages ago by Bloomsbury Publishing (Thank you <3) and finally picked it up since they also sent me the ARC for its sequel. I am currently reading the sequel (still – I have been slumping) but I hope to have both books reviewed tomorrow once I finish said sequel. The covers of both books are gorgeous and bright and make me SO hungry.

 

HP1Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone (Illustrated Edition) by J.K. Rowling ★★★★★(5/5)

This favourite was a must read to help me get out of my book slump and it sure helped a lot. Absolutely loved it and I hope to get around to reading all the books in the series slowly this year. It’s been so long since I’ve read them that I only really remember the movie scenes, which is depressing.

 

stormStorm (Elementals #1) by Brigid Kemmerer ★★★☆☆(3/5)

Literally didn’t even realise that this was written by the same author as Letters to The Lost which my best friend gushes about all the time until I had finished the book. This was exactly the kind of paranormal trash I needed to get over my book slump. It was a great trash read and time turner to the good old days of my paranormal addiction as a tween. I have the rest of the series, so I might actually finish it this time. It was full of hot boys and whatever attitudes and gave me all the twilight teen angst vibes of miscommunication I needed.

 

And that was my month of reading for August. I hope that September is just as successful. Even with a reading slump, I’m proud of myself for getting out of it and pushing through because I would hate to lose my love of reading. How did August go for you?

 

Until next time,

 

xx Tracy
