August Reading Wrap-Up

I thought that I had a good month in July, but August was even better. This month I read a whopping 20 books, which is probably a record for me. I am crushing my reading challenge and staying pretty up to date with new releases as well. I'm also pretty sure that this month I have written a record number of book reviews. All in all, I am proud of what I managed to read considering how busy this month was for me. Starting in September, the number of books I read each month will probably go down considerably for a couple months. Fall TV starts next month and let's be honest... it's going to cut into my reading time. Sorry, not sorry 😜! So here's what I read in August:
