This year is just flying by!
August wasn’t such a great month for me in general – reading wise or life wise. The first half was terrible and the second half not great but not as bad as the beginning of the month was. I kind of want to erase the first half of August. (Except for the CoHo signing, I don’t want to erase that. It was the best part of August!) While I didn’t read a lot this month because I hit a terrible reading slump the books I did manage to read were great. Two of them were, in fact, incredible, unforgettable reads! I even found a new favorite that I’ve actually reread twice since I first read it. I didn’t, however, stick to my TBR from last month. Oops.

-Read But Didn’t Review-
Smut by Karina Halle
I read this and then didn’t have time to sit down and actually write a review and once I did have the time I never did. But I absolutely loved it! It’s hilarious and sexy and perfect if you are in a slump or have just read a devastating book. (I read it after I read It Ends With Us.) I loved the characters and the whole story. It’s officially one of my favorites and I really want to read some of the author’s other books now.
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover, hands down! That book ripped my heart out and then served it to me on a silver platter, but I loved every second. I especially love how it started an important conversation and created this understanding about a subject that is misjudged a lot. It had me realizing things about myself that I hadn’t before. It was so powerful and as you can tell I’m still not over it. I don’t think I ever will be.
I had a lot of fun writing my discussion post for It Ends With Us. It was a good place to get all of the emotions I had toward that book out. It’s also full of spoilers. So be warned!
I went a bit crazy this month and bought a lot of books. What is a book buying ban and does it really exist!?
I also received a few books from a few giveaways and through a review request!

In my defense some of those books I bought were only .99! I have a problem with buying .99 books on my Kindle. 🙈
It’s almost Autumn! I am ready for cooler weather, sweaters, boots, and the leaves changing colors. I’m also ready for my six months of blogging (in September) and my birthday (in October). Plus there are so many books that I’m excited for!
This month my TBR is going to be books I have to read and review before October. Mostly, there’s one that I don’t have to read this month but hope to get to anyway. I’ve been putting most of these off until now so the reviews could be closer to the release days so I’m really excited. 😃
As I mentioned above, my six month blogiversary is in September.
Can you believe it’s been six months since I started this blog!? Because I can’t.
Anyway! I have something special planned for my blogiversary that I’ll be sharing with you guys on or around September 15th. So, be on the look out for that. 😊
What books did you read this month? What was your favorite?
Did you have a good blogging month or just a good month in general?
What do you plan on reading in September?
I hope all of you had a lovely August and have an even better September!
