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.

It’s official: slowly, but surely I am becoming a summer TBR person! After creating a July TBR and sticking with it for the most part, I decided to create an August TBR. This is a disclaimer mostly to myself that I may read all, more, or less of the books listed below. I am going on vacation for a few days this month and I’ll be heading back to school in a few weeks *le sigh that I probably won’t be reading 10+ books a month between 3 jobs, 5 classes, and all the fun college things for the rest of the year* (but I am excited for me and my roommate’s plan to catch up on Game of Thrones and The Handmaid’s Tale).

In other fun TBR news, 2018 will be my first year participating in Read.Sleep.Repeat’s ARC August Reading Challenge.  The goal of the challenge is to read as many of your advance reading copies as you can. There’s also a readathon, bookish bingo, and plenty of fun giveaways in store for participants too!I gratefully have a few fall and winter ARCs on my TBR, and I plan on at least reading 7 ARCs this month along with some backlist titles.
