#AugustWrapUp I thought I hadn‘t read as much as I usually do, but the tally says otherwise! I traveled a lot last month - audiobooks are the best travel buddies!
Total books read: 18
13 Audiobooks
4 eBooks
1 Hardcopy
Finished: 17
Bailed: 1
Leah on the Offbeat wins #BestOfAugust for me! Though it was a close race with Fangirl. I can‘t believe it‘s taken me so long to get around to these wonderful books, but I‘m glad I finally did!

#AugustWrapUp #BestofAugust #AugustStats

I‘ve read 17 books in August, more than I ever read in one month before.

Among them were 8 Man Booker longlisted books, some of which I gave 4 stars. These two however are my favorites this month (4.5 stars). Both are so original and surprising!
So, a very good reading month, despite the fact that there were no 5 stars for me!

Kalalalatja Well done you! You might even be able to finish another book tomorrow 😉 12mo
BarbaraBB No I won‘t. I‘m very slowly going through 12mo
merelybookish I'm intrigued by the tagged book! 12mo

August brought pretty meager reading - this was probably the busiest month of 2017! I worked into nights, we traveled to see the eclipse, my daughter moved out to the dorms, my other started school...

What I read was good (except for AFAR, which at least was pretty). Overall I enjoyed them but I am hoping for more in September!

Gezemice @kspenmoll I live in central Illnois, we drove to St Louis and we found a small state park nearby tgat was in the zone. It was in Robertsville, Missouri. We had no clouds and we found shade, too! 2y
Gezemice @RealBooks4ever It is good but no rush! My reading challenge required a steampunk novel so I bumped it up on the TBR. (edited) 2y
kspenmoll So happy for you! We initially had clouds but parted in time- near Grand Island of rt 80. 2y
Gezemice @kspenmoll Glad to hear you could see the main act! It was amazing. 2y

I can't stand the color combos I pulled on this, but I'm too lazy to change any of it. 🤦🏻‍♀️😸


Total of books read: 23
YA titles: 4
Adult: 7
GN/Comics: 11 (Some really long ones.)
Kid's Titles: 1

For my #BestOfAugust picks I'd choose 12 Days at Bleakly Manor and The Art of Hiding. 👍

Cinfhen I like it! 2y

And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie
post image

A bit late with my #bestofaugust/end-of-month roundup... but here it is! I couldn't decide on my favorite--I had so much fun re-reading with #LOTRchapteraday AND introducing myself to Agatha Christie for the first time. I didn't read as many from the TBR this month, though--gotta get cracking for #LitsyAtoZ if I'm gonna finish by the end of the year!

DebinHawaii Great job! 📚👍 2y
monkeygirlsmama I still haven't done my August tally yet. 🤦🏻‍♂️ 2y
BarbaraJean @DebinHawaii Thanks! @Lindy Me too! I checked it out because the title was hilarious... but found the artwork beautiful, and was impressed by the message of the story. 2y
Lindy @BarbaraJean Yes, surprisingly haunting for something so whimsical on the surface. 2y

August wasn't a great reading month for me, and it's only going to get worse because classes start next week. I read 10 books in August, which isn't bad, but I would have liked to read more. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was my #BestOfAugust. #AugustWrapUp #AndItsAugust #BooksAcrossOceans

CouronneDhiver Nothing wrong with that... looks like you picked some great reads! 👍 2y
Rachellynnwright Agreed @CouronneDhiver, it's more about quality anyway! 2y
L_auren Evelyn was mine too!! 2y
candority That's true, thanks @CouronneDhiver & @Rachellynnwright! It was so good @L_auren! 2y
Andrew65 Well done. 🙌👏 I need to get to 12mo
