I finally updated my reading journal! Here's some of July & August's stats. Still trying to get into the habit & haven't had the energy to come up with anything visually interesting. My favourites this summer were the Sarah's Scribbles books (need to get my hands on print versions), Ready Player One & The Hundred Secret Senses. Worst was The Great Gatsby. I didn't like it any more than I did 20 years ago #JulyStats #AugustStats #ReadingChallenges

Cathythoughts You are keeping a lovely record 💫💫 11mo
Nute I like your reading journal. I think that the reason that I am not keeping a book journal which is very desired is because I'm so caught up in how to make it pretty or visually stunning or cool. I'm stuck before I even begin! Keep doing what you're doing...it is wonderful! 11mo
TK-421 @Nute @Cathythoughts Thank you! 😊 11mo

Here are my August stats:
11 books read
4,384 pages
9 Physical, 2 ebooks
Circe was by far my favorite, and is also my top read of 2018. Coming in second, The Hunt for Vulcan, an awesome little nonfiction book about physics and astronomy. My least favorite was probs Bird box, the story was interesting but the writing wasn‘t my favorite. #circe #augustwrapup #auguststats #physics #augustreads

So I totally failed on reading any of my #makemereadit goals. I blame all of my library holds popping up. Also some of my favorite authors‘ books coming out.
12 books total
5🌠Tower of Dawn and Dr. Strange Beard
5 audiobooks
7 in Kindle
No DNF this month! Overall a good reading month.

Solaris | Stanis?aw Lem, Joanna Kilmartin, Steve Cox

So I didn't finish any of the books I planned to read this month 😂 I started 3 of them but finished none of them... oops.
These are the ones I finished this month and I caught up on some reviews as well, so it was a good month as things go.
My favourite was Solaris, and The Girl With All the Gifts and Skulduggery were rereads.

Samplergal I plan so well, rarely do I do what is planned. It‘s not a competition, so enjoy what you read. 11mo

And so ends another month, summer went by way too quickly... although I am looking forward to some slightly cooler temperatures. Maybe I‘ll finally be able to read outside? 🤷‍♀️🤞
