August Wrap-Up

I actually managed to read ten books in August. I imagine I will have to slow down a bit in September since I have started to homeschool my kid and will be devoting a lot of time to planning lessons and teaching. August was a great reading month with mostly five star reads. My favorite book was Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren. My most disappointing one was These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. I guess I only enjoy the books Amie writes with Jay Kristoff.

Twilight (#1) by Stephenie Meyer

I decided to do a reread of this one before I read Midnight Sun, and it turned out to be a great decision, because Midnight Sun runs alongside Twilight. I was able to appreciate Edward’s point of view much more after reading Bella’s very limited take on the story.

Obsidio Illuminae book three by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Buy on Amazon

I was able to finish my reread of the Illuminae Files alongside by husband who was reading them for the first time, and he loved them. It’s always nice to share a book you love with a loved one. You can read my old review for this one here.

these broken stars book by amie kaufman and meagan spooner
Buy on Amazon

⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

What a gorgeous cover right? But I think this book was just an okay read and I don’t believe I will continue on with this series. I found the characters in this book overly dramatic and childish. I guess I only like the books Amie writes alongside Jay Kristoff. I did not write a full review for this one.

Buy on Amazon

Throne of Glass (#1) by Sarah J. Maas

I’ve been slowly rereading this series in between audio books because I missed these characters so much. If you haven’t read these books. I highly recommend them. Maas writes amazing Fantasy worlds with characters you will love. I had never listened to the audio books, and I am loving them.
