So August ended a bit ago but I forgot to post this so here we are...
yes I procrastinate but DON'T JUDGE.
I'm hella busy lately.

ANYWAYS...here are the books I read in August.

1. A Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes by Suzanne Collins: 2 Stars (Dystopian)
2. DarkDawn by Jay Kristoff (#3): 3.5 Stars (Fantasy)
3. Tokyo Ghoul Vol.5 by Sui Ishida: 4 Stars (Horror)
4. Miracle Creek by Angie Kim: 5 Stars (Mystery)

So I didn't read as many books as I would've like to have read BUT I think I mostly enjoyed all the books.
Jay Kristoff's books are so daunting that reading Darkdawn took most of the month for me.
But I ended up really enjoying the book even with the 3.5 star rating.
This month wasn't bad just wish I got to read more.

If you have any questions about the books feel free to drop them below.
If you have a recommendation for a book you think I might like please give me one too.

ALSO...
what did you guys get to read in August?
What are you anticipating reading for September?
LET ME KNOW!!!

A book about President Snow? Is it worth it?

I've heard some polarizing opinions about it. I think you either love it or hate it. Just like The Selection series.

Well i am rereading the Dresden(jim Butcher) series.

i started sometime in aug and am on book 10.. also i REALLy Love the feel of the ROC paperbacks they are just so nice to hold and read.

I finished the first dragon lance(Weis and Hickman) set again in Aug for sure.

and not sure about the rest.

i would re read 1984 but we are living it so no real point )

I normally don't read too many books but this month was rough because I chose two dense books that consumed so much of my time.
:nekoshy: :nekoshy:
But I love talking books so I love when you comment! I think I've only heard of the Becky Albertalli book tbh.

The Albertalli one was probably my least fave tbh :we_kpopsourcing: Simon Vs The Homo Sapien's Agenda was a lot better

I'd really recommend And Then There Were Four, it was surprisingly good!

unfortunately, I was on the fence with Simon so I doubt I'd like any of her other books.

It sounds like it was a thriller or a mystery-was it?

The problem I had was that it was basically a copy/paste of Simon. Jewish kid who lives in Georgia, a female and a male best friend, about 500 Harry Potter references, etc etc :nayeonisdone:

Yep! It was a little hard for me to get into at first but it really picked up after the first few chapters :nekolove:

I feel like most thrillers are like that for me. If they start out being really good they rarely end on a high note...Miracle Creek was the exception.

I ended up reading:
Majesty by Katherine Mcgee (enjoyment wise its 4 stars but if I look at this book as the second part of a duo then I get frustrated because it makes the first book pointless imo)
Doll Bones by Holly Black (3 stars)
Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall (4 stars)
The Orphans Tale by Pam Jenoff ( 3 Stars)
Tokyo Ever After by Emiko Jean (DNF at around 85 % the way through. ) :nekosweat:

Based off the synopsis I expected a book about the character building a relationship with her father and learning about her culture, instead it was a romance that was very insta love. I at first was just going to power through it but I was too disappointed to see it through.
