August has been another great bookish month. Let’s face it, every month is a good book month.
I ended July with two massive hauls and 336 books on Mount Ted TBR.
I read 20 books this month: This Savage Song, Spare and Found Parts, The Mermaid, The Belles, Rebel of the Sands, Traitor to the Throne, Hero at the Fall, Vox, Only Love Can Break Your Heart, A Place Called Perfect, Evolution, Furthermore, Make More Noise, Reasons to Stay Alive, A Far Away Magic, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (a re-read), Dear Martin, History is All You Left Me, The Coldest Girl in Cold Town, Theatrical, and City of Ghosts.
This month I added 12 books to my TBR, which you can see in my latest haul post.
I ended the month with 328 books on my TBR.
Where in the World? I’m still on 5/6 for this one. I have read no books whose authors hail from South America or Antarctica. If you have suggestions for either of these then please, please help!
Magic Square – I haven’t read any more for this, so I’m still stuck on 21/ 25.
Book Riot Read Harder – This month, I read the Rebel of the Sands trilogy, which I am counting as a Western, bringing my total to 9/24. I’m not expecting to tick off many more for this challenge as there are a lot of subjects on there I’m just not that interested in reading.
Beat the Backlist – I ticked off 15 more books for the backlist challenge: Spare and Found Parts, This Savage Song, The Mermaid, The Belles, Rebel of the Sands, Traitor to the Throne, Hero at the Fall, A Place Called Perfect, Furthermore, Make More Noise, Reasons to Stay Alive, A Far Away Magic, Dear Martin, History is All You Left Me, and The Coldest Girl in Cold Town.
Netgalley Crackdown – This month I’ve read two more from my Netgalley list: Evolution and Vox. I also DNF two of my Netgalley books because I just could not get into them. This leaves my total at 15 Netgalley books to read.
How was your month? What are your bookish highlights this month?
