Books Read in August

 I am late as usual with my monthly reading summary, though I have a good excuse this time! I have been very sick and am just starting to come back to life & catch up on my reviews (among a million other things I got behind on!). I am excited to finally do this summary because I made some good progress on my reading challenges in August. Here's what I read:

  • What Waits in the Woods by Kieran Scott, teen/YA novel (NY) - review to come

So, I read seven books total, which is quite a bit for me! They were all fiction (pretty normal for me), but I read a nice mix of adult, YA, and middle-grade novels - some books and some audio. I enjoyed all of these. My choice for favorite book of the month is a tie between Anne of Green Gables and The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry. I loved both of them and never wanted them to end!

Update on 2015 Reading Challenges:
For my 2015 Where Are You Reading Challenge, I added just 1 new state (Missouri) and 1 new country (Canada) to my list. I finally made some TBR progress and read 3 books from my own shelves for my Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2015! I listened to two more audio books for my 2015 Audio Book Challenge, and added no books to my 2015 Nonfiction Reading Challenge. I read 2 classics last month - woohoo! - for my Back to the Classics Challenge. I added Canada to my Travel the World in Books Challenge (does that count?). And I read two more big books for my own Big Book Summer Challenge and met my goal of 6 big books this summer - hey, that's the important one, right?

What was your favorite book(s) read in August? 


  1. I finished Skinny Legs and All in August, though it took me a while to get to the end, I loved it! I also reread Pride and Prejudice and read most of the Neon Bible (but finished it in September). I loved Prodigal Summer!

    1. I've never read Pride & Prejudice! Can you believe I just read my first-ever Jane Austen (Emma) last summer? Sounds like you had a good reading August, too!

  2. What a wonderful and varied reading list. I have only completed three books this month. Back-to-school is always tough on me and I feel like veggie out when I get home. Looking forward to more reading in October. Hope you are feeling better.
