Month In Review: August 2019

monthinreview

Another month come and gone in the blink of an eye. But September is bringing my favorite season along with it so I’m okay with that! I am so ready for fall. I had another great month of reading in August. I would say the only real dud is that I started to listen to a book I’ve been waiting for so long to read because of it’s length and I ended up not liking it at all so I just stopped listening to it and pulled the three books in that series off my shelf to offload. The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson is something I really thought I would enjoy because I love high fantasy and really enjoyed his Mistborn trilogy… but I just could not get into this one. I was bored to tears. But like I said, that was the only dud of the month and I decided not to even count it as a DNF because I probably didn’t get that far into the book since it is 1000+ pages even though I listened to it for over 2 hours. So without further ado… my stats for the month.

  1. Hey Maren, I am very sorry to hear Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury was your least favourite read – it is one of my favourites of his – however at least you didn’t DNF it like The Way of Kings. In August, I really enjoyed reading the historical fiction Queen of the North by Anne O’Brien and Christian non-fiction Searching For Sunday by Rachel Held Evans. Happy reading in September! ๐Ÿ™‚
