Completely forgot to write this up! The month kind of flew for me, I didn’t realize it was over.
Right off the bat, my reading during August looks like it was a doozy at 25 books, but don’t let that fool you. A lot of them were fairly short books by Ellen Hopkins (and I can read those things in a day, easy). One was a novella.
Ngl, though, seeing the total as 25 still kind of thrills me. I’m so close to my reading goal already! I’ll have to bump it up! 😀
Anyway, onto the goods!

Whew. That was a lot. Only five more books left in my 21 in 2021, too! I’m slowly making my way through Wicked at the moment, and I’ll probably pick up Mara Dyer after. I really want to save Ashes for last because I think I’ll like it a lot, and I’d love to finish this all off with a good note, but I also really want to pick it up right now. The struggle!
My library is also constantly updating their catalogue with more and more new audiobooks on Libby and Hoopla, so I keep getting sidetracked reading books I see on the spot and decide, yes, that’s what I’m reading now. My other books on my currently-reading? I don’t know them.
… It’s a bit of a problem.
I also read all the books in my August TBR, so expect a September one coming… well, as soon as I write it! (Probably tomorrow?)
Thanks for reading!
