17 BOOKS 1 FANGIRL: August 2020 Wrap Up

August was another one of those strange months where it felt long and short at the same time! This month, I celebrated my twenty-second birthday, had more beach & pool days, finished my first semester of grad school, and read a ton of books! I had two weeks in August in between the summer and fall semesters, so I spent so, so much time reading! I think it also helped that I didn’t have a ton of new shows coming out (aside from the 3 seasons that I did binge and my weekly reality TV schedule, oops), but I was also just genuinely in the mood to read! I knew in the back of my mind that I likely won’t be able to devour 17 books a month for the rest of 2020 or until at least December, since I just started my fall semester last Monday and have a pretty big course load. 

I have reviews already published and coming for 15 of 16 out of the follow books so I’m not going to be sharing my mini thoughts on them, with the exception of the books I DNF’ed.

READING & REWATCHES: August 2018 Wrap Up

As summer came to a close, I made sure to fill my August with as many days outside and books as possible. Between work, going on family vacation, and floating around the pool, I read a total of 11 book, rewatched some of my favorite TV shows, and watched To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before approximately 9 times. This fangirl will do ANYTHING to get that sequel.
