August Wrap-Up & Sequel September TBR

August Wrap-Up & Sequel September TBR

Hello All ~~

August was a pretty quiet month on the blog cause work, university and the physical embodiment of stress have been slightly ruining my life. Although I read a lot, I was not productive in actually writing my thoughts down or doing anything at all that society even remotely deems necessary for me to succeed. *queue exit stage left here*.

Anyway, here’s my wrap-up:

Not a whole lot in August except for a huge bunch of mini-reviews for DNFs & graphic novels. I do always have cool post ideas on the go, it’s just getting around to writing them honestly…

What I Watched in August

I, unfortunately, haven’t really had much time to watch anything this month since I’m so busy but I did enjoy watching Avatar: The Last Airbender basically for the first time with my SO which has been super enjoyable. I’m loving it so far, it has such great diversity and representation of cool, adapted Asian culture and martial arts. I’ve been told it gets better and the series continues so I’ll likely keep watching this in September.

My Sequel September TBR

 

I had no idea up until yesterday that Sequel September was a thing but I guess I’m kind of getting onto it. I don’t have a huge TBR because I lack time and my moods are crazy these days but I do have a few books I know I will read and a few sequels I’d like to get to. No guarantees that I’ll read them all at this point but it’s the thought that counts, right?

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson (a recent cover & positively reviewed new release I’m sure you’ve seen around)

Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff (sequel! I kind gotta finally read this, I preordered the last book)

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (that one sequel I’m too scared to read)

Morning Star by Pierce Brown (Dark age has arrived at my doorstep, I just need to unbox and catch up on this series)

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco (Asian Reading Challenge)

 

What are you planning to read this month?

 

Until next time,

  1. I’d love to read “A Monster Calls”! I read “Knife of Never Letting Go” in July and just got the other two books, need to catch up! As for “Morning Star”, great choice! August was my catch-up month for the Red Rising series. Just finished “Iron Gold” and can’t wait to start the behemoth that is “Dark Age”!

    1. I haven’t read that other Patrick Ness books but his style is definitely unique and I’m always up for a read from him. I have two more books on my shelves by him I’ve yet to read and yay for the red rising catch up! That’s me this month šŸ™‚ thanks for commenting šŸ’–

  2. Lovely wrap up! A Monster Calls is literally one of my favorite novels in the entire world! The movie is also a beautiful adaption! <3 Avatar: the Last Airbender is such a great animation, and the series gets infinitely better as it progresses. I just recently rewatched the whole series with my youngest sister over the summer, and it was just as wonderful as I remembered!

    1. Thank you, me too and omg I’ve been wanting to watch the movie for so long and yes, I’m sure it’s going to get even better as it continues – thanks for commenting šŸ’–
