I am quite content with what I managed to read this month. Somehow I have turned from amazing books to a reading slump, but more about that later. Here’s what I managed to read in August:
- This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab (5 stars)
- Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, Jack Thorne (4 stars)
- Gone Wild by Jodi Lundgren (2.5 stars)
Read this with Cátia.
- Player by M.L. Sparrow (3 stars)
So, I technically put the following books on my TBR, because I got them all for my birthday, but I didn’t officially list them yet.
- The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig (4 stars)
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (4.5 stars)
- The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (5 stars)
- Hamilton: The Revolution (5 stars)
As always, click on the titles above to get to the reviews (or on the name of the people I read the books with, to get to their reviews if they are up yet) and on the covers to be redirected to Goodreads!
I am on my FIRST holiday since starting to work at the bookshop in February and it doesn’t feel like a vacation at all, because every day is fully scheduled and busy to no end. I wish I could take more time off, but it will have to do. However, the closer my days off came, the less and less I read. I have absolutely no idea what inspired this massive reading slump, but at least I caught up on some of TV watching habits. Most notoriously I got obsessed with Wynonna Earp and Stranger Things, because why not? And I got into a funk because of Roadies ending and am already a little bit in love with Victoria. Don’t even get me started on movies! Whiskey Foxtrot Charlie occupied my mind for days!
