Extremely Productive Month

So I thought August wasn’t going to amount to much reading wise. Instead it became an extremely productive reading month I’ve had to date since I’ve started reading seriously. Now posting on the blog fell behind which I’m going to try to remedy next month. But I read A LOT. A few were picture books but most were novels, and I may be able to fit a few in more in before the end of the month.

It’s a good thing too since I’ve got two extremely major readathons coming coming up. They both require a lot of books and a lot of time spent. Those two readathons are BookoplAthon and Orillium, one is readathon inspired by Monopoly and the other is a journey to a magical school. So the books I’ve read this month were great training for the TON of reading I’m going to do next month.

Let’s talk about the books I’ve read this month shall we 13 in all. 13! For some of you who hit double digits often this may not sound like a lot but I’ve been having trouble getting out of the low single digits so it’s a big success for me, so I’m going to try for 15-20 next month.

Below are the books I’ve read this month.

The Dragon Egg Princess by [Ellen Oh]
The Revenge of Magic by [James Riley]
Dark Waters by [Katherine Arden]
Hide and Don't Seek: And Other Very Scary Stories by [Anica Mrose Rissi]
The Last Dragon (The Revenge of Magic Book 2) by [James Riley]
Bridge of Souls (City of Ghosts #3) by [Victoria Schwab]
The Forgotten Girl by [India Hill Brown]
In My Mosque by [M. O. Yuksel, Hatem Aly]
Say It Out Loud by [Allison Varnes]

So as we can see I have a lot of reviews to do, well as some reviews from the summer that I’ve missed. I’ll try to get to all that in September. But it’s nice to look at all the reading I’ve done in a visual form. Most of this reading was done for the two readathons I was taking part in this month, which were, The Royal Readathon, and the Trope-ical Readathon. I feel particularly accomplished this year because I hit most of the prompts on the Trope-ical Readathon.
