Ahh, summer. We barely knew ya! I just got back from a beach vacation down in North Carolina, which accounts for my silence here the last week or so. While I wasn’t reviewing books, I was actively reading them as I love sitting and reading on the beach (as well as going into the ocean).
Thanks to time off of work and vacation, I managed to read 10 books this month – not too shabby if I do say so myself. I’ve surpassed 70 books for the whole year and am ahead of my reading goals for 2022, which always makes me feel happy!
August was also Read a Romance and Romance Awareness Month so my reading revolved around romances, which honestly is not a change of pace for me as I pretty much read romances every single day.
Once again, I find myself asking how it is the end of the month already?? Summer truly flew by this year and I’m in denial that fall is right around the corner.
While August might have flew by, it was also an incredible reading month for me. I didn’t even realize how much I read until I sat down to write this. This month I read 11 books, bringing my total for the year up to 77 books! I’m feeling really good about surpassing my goal of reading a 100 books this month based on how the last few months of reading have gone.
August 2021 Reads
Looking back at my August TBR, I read 8 out of the 10 books on the list. The two I missed were The Day of the Duchess (which I skimmed for scenes of Caleb and Sesily in prep for Bombshell)and It Happened One Summer which I still really want to get to!
