August Wrap-Up!

img_3576-1

This may be late, but I’m doing it anyway!  I had a pretty great August, bookish and non-bookish!  I cannot believe that we are already almost halfway through with September though. Where has 2016 gone?!

BOOKS READ

I read a total of six books in August!

 

A Long Way From You not pictued because it was overdue from the library! haha

A Long Way From You by Gwendolyn Heasley \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– The Program by Suzanne Young \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– Dance of Fire by Yelena Black \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

– The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson \\ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

 

STANDOUT BOOK OF THE MONTH 

I’ve decided I’m going to start featuring a book or two each month that really stood out to me.  Maybe it will be one I found to be surprisingly good, or one that I knew was going to become a favorite.  This month I’m going to feature:

The Importance of Being Earnest 


and

The Program


I was so pleasantly surprised with both of these books!  I did not expect to like them nearly as much as I actually did.

CLASSIC READ

For the Pretty Books 2016 Classic Challenge, I read The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.  Be sure to look for my post about it, coming soon!

 

BOOK HAUL

I only bought one book in August: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey!  I loved The 5th Wave, so I cannot wait to read this second book in the series and find out what happens next. 🙂

MISCELLANEOUS

I also participated in the #ReadThemAllThon that went from August 14th through September 3rd.  Click here to find out which books I was reading, and my progress for that read-a-thon!

I also started a new feature called Movie Monday!  I’ve only made one post, so far, about it.  To hear my thoughts comparing Matilda by Roald Dahl to its movie, click here. 🙂

I finally, very slowly, started to catch up on tags!  I was nominated for the Liebster Award a couple months ago, and I finally got around to doing it.


That wraps up my August!  I had a really great month filled with swimming, the fair, and camping, along with some really great books.  I hope you all had an excellent August as well, and I hope your September is going great, too! 🙂

    The Infinite Sea is so good, I hope you like it! I’ve been wanting to read The Unexpected Everything, I even started reading it in August but I have yet to finish it. I don’t even know why I stopped reading. I was really liking it, but for whatever reason I just stopped. I need to pick it back up soon.
