Gosh, how is it the end of summer already? It’s hard to believe where this year is going and to be honest, it’s hard to believe I am completely caught up with my reading goals. This summer has been such an incredible time for reading for me, I’ve read so many incredible books over the last three months, I kind of wish I could go back in time and re-read these all for the first time. I read 24 books in the span of three months and to me, that is absolutely incredible.
During the month of August, I read a total of 6 books. I finished an incredible series, I read an amazing stand-alone, and I am on my way to finishing another amazing trilogy. Needless to say, I think August has been one of my favorite reading months.
The first book I read was The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski. I will definitely have a review for this coming soon, but this one honestly surprised me. It would have been perfect for fall but since I am impatient and didn’t want to wait for fall— I obviously read it now. I rated this 4.5/5 stars.
The second book I read was Air Awakens by Elise Kova. I will have a series review for this coming sometime in the near future, but I have had my eye on this for such a long time. I finally decided to pick it up because I swear it was haunting me, but all I’m gonna say is that this series is number one on my favorite books ever. I rated this 5/5 stars.
The third book I read was Fire Falling by Elise Kova. This book was a delight and it ended on SUCH a cliffhanger, I could not even. I rated this 5/5 stars.
The fourth book I read was Earth’s End by Elise Kova. This book played with my emotions and hurt me so much, Elise is brutal okay. I rated this 5/5 stars.
The fifth book I read was Water’s Wrath by Elise Kova. This one destroyed me, I cried so damn hard. I rated this 5/5 stars.
The sixth book I read was Crystal Crowned by Elise Kova. This made me so happy, it ended just the way I wanted it to end, and I rated this 5/5 stars.
So yeah, all 5 star reads practically and I do not regret rating them all five stars because they deserved it.
And yes, A Gathering of Shadows is featured here because I thought I would finish it, but I am definitely not going to get there by the end of the day.
NOW for my haul. I did not get as many books as I did last month, in fact, I got rid of more than I bought which that will be another post for another time. But I also invested in a Barnes and Noble membership card so yeah, goodbye savings!
