Wrap-Up | What I Read in August 2021

Well helloooo there hot stuff! I hope you’re doing well and I hope you’re currently on a cruise in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean sipping martinis… and if you’re not that’s fine too! I’m dreaming of the vacation days I’ll be taking in September ahah – can you tell?

Anyways, let’s get back on track. Today I’m bringing you all the books I read in the month of August. Even though my TBR list was pretty short – a grand total of 5 books – I didn’t feel like picking up two of them… I just wasn’t feeling it! This is my third attempt to read The Authenticity Project, and I still couldn’t do it. I feel like this is not the right time to pick it up, so I’m moving on to other books without judgement.

With that said, I read a lot of unplanned books! In total I read 7 books this month that I wasn’t planning on reading in the first place. Some of them were disappointing, but I found some amazing books too. But one thing at a time: let’s start with the books I planned on reading in August! Here are the original books from my TBR:

  1. One To Watch by Kate Stayman-London: 5/5⭐
  2. Pop Goes the Weasel (Helen Grace #2) by M.J. Arlidge: 4.5/5⭐
  3. Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover: 5/5⭐

So from all the books I planned on reading this month, I read 3 of 5, which I think was okay. I’m not too bothered because two of the books I rated 5 stars and the other one was a high 4. I can’t complain about that!

Now regarding the books I read that weren’t planned, I read:

  1. Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick: 4.25/5⭐
  2. Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and Success by Napoleon Hill: 4.5/5⭐
  3. Uncharted (Uncharted #1) by Julie Johnson: 4/5⭐
  4. Normal People by Sally Rooney: 2/5⭐
  5. Making a Play (The Field Party #5) by Abbi Glines: 3.5/5⭐
  6. Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson: 3.5/5⭐
  7. Good Girl, Bad Blood (A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder #2) by Holly Jackson: 5/5⭐

As you can see, I read a good amount of unplanned books! I’m so happy I finally had the courage to start the Hush, Hush series, because I’m loving it! I only read the first book, but the second book, Crescendo, is on my September TBR. The two most disappointing reads were definitely Eight Perfect Murders and Normal People. The first one because it spoiled a lot of books I wanted to read and the second one because I didn’t love the story. The book that shined this m

As you can see, I read a good amount of unplanned books! I’m so happy I finally had the courage to start the Hush, Hush series, because I’m loving it! I only read the first book, but the second book, Crescendo, is on my September TBR. The two most disappointing reads were definitely Eight Perfect Murders and Normal People. The first one because it spoiled a lot of books I wanted to read and the second one because I didn’t love the story. The book that shined this month was definitely Good Girl, Bad Blood which is the sequel for A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder! I honestly don’t have enough words to describe how incredible this series is, and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series! So overall I’m very happy with how much reading I did this month! It was a great reading month full of many good and bad surprises.

Let me know how your reading month was! Thank you for reading, I’ll see you guys later 🙂

xoxo,
