August Reading Wrap Up

I’m really happy with what I read in August! I read a total of eleven books, three of which have been on my TBR for at least ten years. I also really enjoyed almost everything I read! There are only two books I rated less than four stars, and I kind of knew I wouldn’t like one of them going in (but was hoping it would be a fun, guilty-pleasure read).

My standout books for the month were Dark Matter and Song of Achilles. Definitely new favorites! I also really enjoyed The Last Days of Night, and am looking forward to seeing the movie adaptation. Definitely some great recent releases out there at the moment! I’m really excited about getting into fall reading. (I will also have a spring and summer favorites post up soon, so keep an eye out for that!)

I’ve linked all the book reviews I’ve done so far, and will most likely be reviewing Persuasion and Song of Achilles soon! Keep reading to see what books I read this month!
