August Wrap-Up!

monthly wrapup

I feel like I say this every single month, but can you even believe it is now September?! This year is flying by SO fast!

Overall, August was a pretty great month for me.  Altogether, I read six books.

For this month’s choice, I have to go with The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo!  I honestly did not expect this book to live up to its hype, and yet, somehow it did.

I also shared the books I hoped to read for the #ClassicsAThon…As you can tell from the lack of classics in this wrap-up, however, I didn’t exactly reach my goals…😂🤦🏼‍♀️

  1. I can’t believe we’re in September either like I REALLY can’t believe it! This year has gone quickest out of any year yet! I didn’t read much in august tbh, I got through one book and 3/4 through another one. Luckily they were both very good! xxx

    • I agree! I really cannot believe how close we are to 2019. And these last few months always seem to fly by so fast!

      Honestly, I think enjoying the book is much more important than how many books you were able to read anyway! ☺️

  2. I’ve heard so many good things about The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. You got through so many books last month, wow! I managed to get through 5 books last month. Can’t believe it is September already, although I am really glad since this month has so many great things to offer.

    • It’s such a good one. There’s so much more to the story than you expect. 5 books is great, too! Yes, with the start of the school year and everything, September always feels like an exciting and fresh start!

  3. I can’t believe how many books you can get through in a month. I wish I had the time to do that. Hope you have a great September.
