August was a fairly disappointing reading month. I only read 8 books, though two of them were on the chunkier side. I’ve been experiencing quite a bit of eye pain while reading and using the computer so I haven’t been able to read as much as I would have liked.
So, here are some stats!
Number of pages read: 3766
Number of print books: 4
Number of e-books: 4
Favourite quote of the month:
“Somehow, we’ll find it. The balance between whom we wish to be and whom we need to be. But for now, we simply have to be satisfied with who we are.” – The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson
Without further ado…. here is where I usually feature my top two books from differing genres, but I only read one standout book and that was a reread.
What a truly mind blowing and beautiful story. I never thought I’d be this emotional after reading a fantasy novel, but here I am an emotional wreck.
This retelling of ACOMAF from Rhysand’s perspective is perfect for super fans of the series as it gives readers insight into Rhysand in this pivotal point in the series, even if it technically isn’t canon. Four Stars
I’m the Girl was mildly disappointing after the perfection that was Sadie. I’m the Girl is a story about the ugly underbelly of the elite and what can happen to young girls who are taken advantage of by older men. Three Stars
The Make-Up Test was a disappointing romance with no chemistry, terrible people, and lack of communication as the primary source of tension. Two Stars
The Kiss Quotient is a fire hot romance with an interesting premise I didn’t think I would like, but ended up loving. Michael is welcome to come teach me a thing or two. Four Stars
Bitter Sweet Heart is a fire hot age gap romance that offers more than just a forbidden tryst. Instead, Bitter Sweet Heart focuses on Maverick’s mental health through his past trauma and future decisions. Four Stars
The Eagle’s Nest was my first Dramione fanfiction and it won’t be my last. The Eagle’s Nest is a soft introduction to the world of Dramione fanfiction I cannot wait to get lost in. Four Stars
The Alloy of Law is a great introduction to an intriguing mystery, compelling new characters, and manages to expand on his original magic system in a logical direction. Five Stars
