I only read 3 books in August… I think that’s the lowest amount I’ve read in a month in about 4 years? Yeah. Although I did read a lot of fan fiction! And some of those are like 60 to 90 chapters long. One of them was 91 chapters and 500 000+ words. I mean, that must count for something? Anyway, let’s talk about the books I actually managed to read.
Geekerella by Ashley Poston // 4 stars // I bought this at YALC, and felt like reading a fluffy contemporary in August. This was so much fun! I loved the twists on the classic Cinderella story -like the pumpkin actually being The Magic Pumpkin, a vegan food truck. I also enjoyed the discussion on whitewashing in Hollywood.
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee // 5 stars // Definitely one of my favorite reads of 2017 now. I ADORED this book. If you want to read this as well, I’d highly recommend the audiobook. It really adds something to Monty’s voice.
The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase #2) by Rick Riordan // 4.5 stars // I’m slowly catching up with Rick Riordan’s latest books! Another one I actually listened to, and an audiobook I’d recommend too. It did take me a while to get used to the narrator though. Can I just say that I adore Alex?
Yup, that’s all I read in August. I know… Quantity-wise, not a great month. Quality-wise though, I’m very satisfied with my reading! I also managed to reach my Goodreads reading goal by finishing The Hammer of Thor.
Have you read any of these books? Which books did you read in August?
