Jenn’s August Wrap Up

These months are going by way too fast lately. School started in August so my life has been a bit hectic. Honestly, most of my reading has been done for our Thrice Read Book Club Saturday discussions. I only got to read 3 books other than the book club books. However, I did read 7 books this month which I am not upset about. I’m hoping I can up that number to 8 in the month of September but we will see.

  • Riders by Veronica Rossi
    • I truly forgot how much I liked Rossi’s writing until I picked up this beauty. I went into this book a little blind. I knew it was about the 4 horsemen. But, that was about all that I knew about it. I really loved this story. You should check it out. I wrote a review all about it here.

  • Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
    • I. LOVE. BRANDON. SANDERSON. Seriouly, he can do no wrong in my eyes. I have loved everything I’ve read by him so far. Steelheart was no exception. We did a discussion on this book here.

  • The Girls by Emma Cline
    • This book was so much more than I expected it to be. I bought it because of the similarities between the family in it and the Manson family. However, the relationships and the view on girls in society made this book amazing. I loved this book. You can read my review on this book here.

Well, that’s all the books I read in August. How many books did you read? What were your favorites?
