August 2020 Wrap-Up

I had a solid week where I didn’t read anything and just binged a bunch of podcasts, but it gave me a good little reading break so I could avoid a dreaded slump. But I did read some good – and not so good – books this month.


As always click on the title to read my review. And all the thanks to Romie @RomieWeDeserveLove for the rep indicators. The πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ means lgbtq rep, β˜€οΈ means major characters of color, and 🌸 means mental illness, disability, abuse, or trauma rep. I’m adding πŸ“š which will indicate my rereads, 🎧 for my audiobooks, πŸ“‘ for non-fiction and true crime, & ❌ for books I DNF’d. Hopefully I won’t have to use that last one a lot.

Least Favorite Book

Making Friends with Alice Dyson

I honestly don’t even think there’s anything I remember enough about this book to say why I didn’t like it – that’s how forgettable it was.

Favorite Book

The Beautiful (The Beautiful, #1)

Yes it was a re-read, but it was probably still my favorite thing I’ve read this month.
