There are several others I'd like to add to that list, but I'll keep it there for now. How about you? How'd you do in August: what did you read, what did you love? What are you looking forward to reading in September? Let me know!


  1. You've read a lot of books this month! There's so many good looking books coming out this month and most of them are on your list. So many books and so little time.

    1. Oh, gosh, I know! I never have enough time for all the novels I want to read!

  2. My best-loved August read was definitely CRACKED UP TO BE by Courtney Summers. I also really enjoyed A DAWN MOST WICKED, Susan Dennard's prequel novella to SOMETHING STRANGE & DEADLY.

    I'm also super excited about THE CHAOS OF STARS and FANGIRL! I'm reading ELEANOR AND PARK right now, I read ATTACHMENTS earlier this year, and I seriously can't get enough of Rainbow Rowell's writing. She's brilliant.

    1. I've heard so much about Cracked Up To Be, but I haven't really given it a look. I am thrilled to get both Chaos and Fangirl. Eleanor & Park was so beautiful. I'm sure Fangirl will be more of the same. I agree. Totally brilliant.

  3. I'm going with Everneath as the favourite of August (:

    As far as September? Phoenix. Overture. That is all. (:

    1. Neither of those is a particularly big shock to me. :) I bet you're already done with Phoenix!

  4. One of my favorite books I read in August was "Poison Princess" (The Arcana Chronicles Series #1) By, Kresley Cole. As for September, I'm hoping to read an ARC of The Iron Traitor By, Julie Kagawa! :)

    1. I've never read any books by Kresley Cole, but I've been hearing a LOT of good things about her. I'm sort of reading Iron Traitor right now, but it's casual. I haven't really gotten into it yet.
