August Wrap-Up

Hello, everybody!!
August is over and now we’re getting into September!
Yesterday – the first day in September, we had some drizzle in the morning and I’m enjoying a ‘not-so-hot-and-humid’ morning today.  What’s the weather like in your place?

Now, it’s time for my August wrap-up and let me share with you the books that I read in the month of August!

I was hoping to finish 12 books last month but I fell asleep and failed to achieve the goal 😦
That said though, I was reading a draft for an author whose page-count is 315, so my unofficial bookcount will be 12 books. Not bad, huh?

You can read my thoughts on these books by clicking the links below.

The Nightingale
Always and Forever, Lara Jean
One Crazy Summer
Sophia of Silicon Valley
Six Four
Dealing with Dragons
Deadly Independence
From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
Finding Audrey
The Lightning Thief

My monthly favorite definitely goes to this one, Always and Forever, Lara Jean. This book gave me a perfect closure to Lara Jean and Peter’s tale as well as so many emotions which I always look for in a book.

There were some books that I didn’t enjoy as much as I had hoped, but there wasn’t a single book that I found it disappointing. None of the books I read in August was that bad. So no books for this category, which is a good thing I suppose!

I’ve been participating in a year-long reading challenge called, The Ultimate Reading Challenge and the challenge for August was “a book that’s on my TBR for a long time.”
Just like last month, I completely forgot about this challenge and I just randomly picked up books that came to my mind.

Thankfully, there was a book that fits for the challenge – The Nightingale. I got this book early January yet hadn’t read it until late August.

Either way, I see it as fulfilling the challenge as the saying goes, All’s well that ends well. 

There you have it; this is my August wrap-up. I was a bit concerned that I didn’t get to read as many books as I did in July, but I am content with how it turned out!

How about you? How was your August? Comment below and let me know!

Thanks so much for reading as always, and I’ll see you in my next post 🙂

  1. Yo had a very good month Noriko!! Because I read a lot of short children’s books I was able to read 14 books which I’m really happy with. The weather here is still pretty warm. I’m hoping it will start cooling down soon.🤞
