August Wrap Up and DNFs

I had a feeling that in August I would read far less than usual and it looks like I was right.  Sadly this means I'm also nearly 1500 pages behind on my 60,000 pages challange - BOO!  Time to roll out the thick books with big font methinks.

On the upside, I read some really awesome books this month - Shadow and Bone was my favourite, closely followed by Not a Drop to Drink (AWESOME YA post-apoc) and Fighting to Survive (yay, zombies!).  I also finished a series, GO ME.

August DNFs

The Kept by James Scott - 180 pages read.  Started off super-creepy and different and then I kinda started falling asleep every time I picked it back up.   I'm still undecided whether to permanently DNF this one - or maybe I'm just kidding myself.

Right, time for September!  How are you doing with your goals for the year??


  1. I really want to read Not A Drop To Drink, it looks so good. And everyone seems to be enjoying ti quite a bit.

  2. Not a Drop to Drink sounds really good. I'm eager to see what you thought of it.

  3. I think you did great! 9 books is good - just not the superhuman blogger level that we're used to doing. lol

    I'm not sure how I did. I was on a mad reading tear for a few weeks but then sputtered out at the end.

  4. I LOVED Shadow & Bone!! I was still hesitant picking it up because hype generally don't work in my favour but THIS ONE! The Grisha world hooked me like no other fantasy world had and The Darkling <3 *CRIES*

    Haha, you've definitely had a much more fulfilling August than I did... I've spent most of my time replaying book-turned-movie trailers over and over and over again xD

  5. I'm really excited about Not A Drop To Drink, can't wait till the preorder arrives on my Kindle app!

    Btw, Mansfield Park is one of the few Jane Austen novels I haven't read, and I need to rectify that soon!

  6. I have Shadow & Bone to pick up from the library this week - looking forward to starting it!

  7. I am so glad you loved Shadow & Bone. Not a Drop to Drink is coming up soon and I can't wait!
