August Wrap-Up & September TBR

August is over, and there is less than a month until Autumn!

If you can’t tell, I just really hate the summer. Honestly, September through December is the best third of the year and you cannot possibly convince me otherwise – cooler weather, beautiful scenery, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, excuses to snuggle, crock pot meals and hot drinks. What’s not to love? Nothing. Summertime means … bug bites, heat rash, sweat, high power bills, kids everywhere, your car trying to burn you when you get inside of it after a long day at work. What is good about any of that? Nothing. OK great. (I am also a mountains over beach person which might contribute to this).

 Pages Read: 2,236, an average of 372 per book

 Average Rating: 3.5 stars

Least Favorite: That’s Not What Happened

 Most Favorite: An Anonymous Girl

My goal was to read more in August, and I think it’s safe to say I definitely did that – I read over 900 pages more this month than last. However I didn’t like the books as much as I did in July, so it is what it is. I am not even factoring in the insanely terrible piece of crap I read called No One Else Can Have You that I didn’t even write a review for because it would just be me high-pitched keening and slamming my face into the desk – that would have significantly lowered my average rating but increased my pages read by about 350.

I am such a mood reader that these are always hard for me, but I will also – as always – make a fair shake attempt at it.

 My Lady Jane is my “gimmie” for September, because I’m reading it now. Always keep a win up your sleeve, folks.

 I am also hopefully going to buddy read The Kiss Quotient with Katie at Too Old for YA and Destiny at Howling Libraries. Woop!

Other than that, I have no idea. I am saving my spooky reads for October, so I think what I read during Summer’s last gasp will largely depend on what I feel like picking up at any given moment. 🙂

What about you this month? Come talk to me in the comments!

    I agree that Sept-Dec are the best months of the year!
    Looks like you had a great reading month, and hope that continues for you into September!

    I’m glad you were able to accomplish your goal of reading more this past month even though it sucks that you didn’t enjoy the books as much – hopefully, September will be better! 🙂 I’d also usually agree that the fall months are better than the too hot summer months but I really enjoyed them this year? I actually got a tan going (which never happens, my pale and freckled self tends to just get sunburns…) which I really appreciate! xD Plus, the sunshine and blue skies do WONDERS for my mood! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a sunny fall season!
