August Wrap-Up

I am happy that I was able to accomplish what I wanted to accomplish for this month. Honestly, my free time has been so limited, recently, and it’s partly due to work and partly due to the fact that life is pretty crazy right now because of Covid-19. I do what I can and I’m happy when I meet the goals I set, even if they feel minimal.

Anyway, here’s a look at what I was able to read this month!

Favorite Book of the Month:

I was torn between Recommended For You and The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires, but I went with Silverman’s book. I think just because it was a lighthearted read gave it the edge. I enjoyed the bookishness of it, too. The characters are excellent and the story is well done, so I highly recommend it.

Least Favorite Book of the Month:

I was pretty disappointed by No Offense. I like Meg Cabot, and romance fiction, but this book was just too cookie-cutter for me. The characters felt so flat and boring and every new event in the book seemed painfully obvious and like the next puzzle piece falling in place. I just didn’t enjoy my read of it.

How about you?
