I have an embarrassing confession to make. August was not a good reading month for me. I read a total of two books — only two books! Now, before you start thinking that maybe they were two colossal novels, please don’t. That is way too kind of you. They were both under 400 pages. The first book was The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken and the second was Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott. However, I am determined to make sure I put up double digits this month — especially since I plan on reading a few thick books. Without further ado, here’s my reading list for this month.
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix By J.K. Rowling
There’s literally no point to provide a synopsis of this book since the whole world knows about this series. Nevertheless, what I would say is that I’ve been wanting to read book five during fall. How many times have you reread this series?
- Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
I am super hype about reading this book since everyone has been posting about it on Bookstagram. Action-packed with a little romance sounds like a perfect read for the fall. If you’ve read this book already, describe it in three words.
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
This book has been sitting on my shelf for the longest. I have completely forgotten what it’s all about, but I guess it’s fun starting a book you have no knowledge on. I think. Have you ever picked up a book that you didn’t know much about?
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Another popular favorite that I’m excited to read. I’ve been dying to start this series because I’ve heard nothing but great things about Leigh Bardugo’s writing style. How would you rate this book/series?
- The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
Middle-grade books are the hottest books this year. OK, maybe that was a stretch, but I have to admit that I’ve enjoyed a few. I picked up this book last year and never gotten around to it — typical. How many middle-grade books have you read so far?
My Mini August Wrap-Up:
I am really proud of my list and extremely confident that I’ll get through all of these amazing novels. What are some ways that have helped you maintain a successful reading month? I need all the help I can get!
