Oh wow, I did not have a great reading month in August, you guys! I am ever so slightly ashamed of myself. At the end of July, I went to YALC and although it was amazing being surrounded by books and all things bookish, I definitely fell into a slump because I missed YALC. Truth be told, I had amazing reading months in June and July because we spent a lot of time on trains round Europe and so I got in a lot of reading then. So both being home from travelling and the come down of YALC really made me feel slumpy. I also started a full time job within the first few days of August so I literally have had no time to read. I am just about beginning to read more as I try and read in my lunch breaks at work, but I still haven’t dedicated myself an hour every evening to read yet. I will get better!
I didn’t read much, but I did read. That’s the main thing. In August, I read:
Saga Vol. 1
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo
I, very luckily, received this one from Penguin. I was so happy to read this one and, although I don’t actually know much about Wonder Woman, I feel like I do know a bit more about her after reading this wonderful book. It was so good and I definitely do need to sharpen up my Wonder Woman knowledge after reading this one. As always, Leigh never fails to disappoint! My review for Wonder Woman: Warbringer can be found here.
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
I read this as part of a buddy read with Morgan and Anna. I fell behind pretty quickly but I did manage to finish it before the end of the month so yay me! This was on my 2017 TBR list so I’m glad that’s another book knocked off! Just another 20 or so to go!
So there you have it, my disappointing August. Hopefully September will be better but I sort of doubt it! I just really need to up my reading speed and dedicate time to read!
