August Wrap Up & September TBR

September? How is this possible? We didn't even have a summer. It's been absolutely crap weather. Blah. Besides that, turns out August was a ridiculous reading month for me. Actually my best reading month to date. I read 28 books this month. "What?!" is right. Apparently I don't sleep. Because that's the only reason I can come up with for fitting that many books in. *pats self on back* Most of the books I read were fantastic. I finally had four of my most anticipated books of 2014 in my hands. So those got devoured. I also read my first Christina Lauren book. Than proceeded to read all their published books. Their books are crack. Anyhow just keep reading on to see all the amazing books I read in August.

See! I had an amazing reading month. I read so many books that were awesome or fantastic. There's six five stars(not including re-reads). So that makes it really hard to pick a favourite of August. I obviously have to say Heir of Fire because obviously. But also The Madman's Daughter took me by surprise. Opposition and Sacrifice are fantastic series enders. And also two Colleen Hoover books that I can't not mention, Ugly Love and Losing Hope. So Heir of Fire is my absolute favourite of the month but all my five stars are also favourites. I can do whatever I want. It's my blog.

September includes a lot of review books. Some will be pictured below, others are on the way and even more of them are e-ARCs. So I will get those read because I have to, but more importantly I'm really excited for them all. Hopefully I love them all. As per usual I have some buddy reads with Samantha which include Far From YouCursed and Stay With Me(when it's released). I've already read two of my highly anticipated September releases, but because September is a massive month for book releases I of course have others I have pre-ordered. So I'll definitely be trying to fit a few of those too. Screwdrived and Jessica Darling's It List 2 being the important ones. I am going to be on a work trip for a week this month so I don't think I'll come close to how much I read in August, but I'll be trying to get as much in as possible. 

How was your August? What are your reading plans for September?

Happy reading!



  1. JESUS EFFIN CHRIST. How can you even read this much!? Well hats down to you! I even got some reading slumps in August, but even without them, 28 is outta my reach unless it was my job, and even then... :L Kudos!
    Looks like you read some great ones as well, which made it easier I suppose :D
    I have to start Armentrout, it's about damn time. :X
    Happy reading!

    And I feel ya with summer. We had such shite weather, and now it's September. Where do I complain about this? I wanna see the manager. -.-

  2. Bloody hell. That's A LOT of books. I was going 'WOW' at the first list and then I scrolled down and saw the second list and my jaw actually dropped! You're a reading machine!! I'm so glad you enjoyed All Lined Up! I adooooore Cora's books so much. And you enjoyed Erased more than Altered! YAY! I still haven't read Losing Hope. I keep meaning to, but I haven't yet.
    I have Black Ice on my TBR for this month too! I think we're actually reading a lot of the same books this month... Which means lots of fangirling together! :D
    I'm pretty sure you'll have another fantastic reading month this month!

  3. Amazing job reading! August didn't slow you down!

  4. WOW! You had an impressive reading month. Not only did you read a ton of books, but you read a ton of really great books. I'm excited to see what you make of Far From You as well.
