Month In Review

A look back at August…

August had some ups and downs for my reading. A few heavy books (weight wise, content wise) made my progress feel slower, but I also had some fantastic reads that flew by. Two readathons during the month helped as well. I wound up reading 28 books this month which is more than I had originally anticipated (reviews linked below)!

Finishing this classic felt like a major accomplishment!

AND THEN THERE WERE NONE by Agatha Christie

BAD BLOOD: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou

FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell

HAG-SEED by Margaret Atwood

Reading this along with the SoCalBooksta group and meeting with some of them for brunch were definitely highlights for August!
