august wrap up + september tbr

Before I start, I just want to say I made a Twitter account for my blog! You can check it out here 🙂

Unfortunately the past few months have been pretty bad for me, reading wise. I’m sad that I haven’t read as much as I hoped to over the summer, but I’m only one book away from completing my reading challenge (of 50 books)!

This month I read 5 books, which isn’t horrible.

Anna and The French Kiss- Stephanie Perkins:
People have been raving about this book for YEARS. I have been wanting to read it for the longest time ever. I finally did but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I hoped. I don’t even want to continue with the next 2 books, actually.

While this was definitely a super fluffy read, I wish I had related to and fallen in love with the characters. I think this was a little too fluffy for me, and I just haven’t been in the mood for fluffy.

3/5 stars

The Five People You Meet in Heaven- Mitch Albom:
I have heard lots of good things about this book, and when I saw that it was at Barnes and Noble for only $5, I had to get it. This book really got me thinking, and it was an incredible read.

I still find myself thinking about it and talking about it to others. The main character was really interesting for me to read about, and hearing about his life in such a unique way is what made me hooked.

5/5 stars

History is All You Left Me- Adam Silvera:
I was extremely lucky to be sent the ARC of this book by _____ on Twitter, and when I got it in my hands, I read it immediately. However, I wasn’t the biggest fan of this one. I couldn’t relate to the characters at all, and I found it a bit too slow for me. I realized in the last few months that I prefer characters over plot, but I still need some action in books. There just wasn’t enough in this one.

3/5 stars

Jane Eyre- Charlotte Bronte:
This book is part of my summer reading for school next year, which may be the reason that I didn’t love it too much.

At first, I really did think I would love the story because Jane seemed like a strong, independent woman and I really admired her for that. However, towards the end I really did not support her decisions and I couldn’t get myself to enjoy the story.

3/5 stars

Weave A Murderous Web- Anne Rothman-Hicks & Ken Hicks:
I wrote a review for this book a little while back so you can check that out!

3/5 stars

Now let’s get to my September TBR!

Midnight’s Children- Salman Rushdie:
Second book of my summer reading. I am almost done with it and expect to be done in a couple of days.

The Hate U Give- Angie Thomas:
I am almost done with this book. I am actually listening to it on Audible (it’s my first audiobook ever- and I love it). It is soo good.

Everything You Want Me To Be- Mindy Mejia:
I received this book in my Read Dog book subscription box and I am finally planning on reading it! It looks super interesting.

 

That is all for my TBR because I am starting my senior year of High School in a few days. I don’t want to overwhelm myself with too many books! What’s on your TBR for this month?
