August Wrap-Up: Reviews, Reading Challenges, etc.

People, I am sooooo ashamed of my reading and blogging month in August. In fact, I’d like to request a redo, please! Please?

If not, I’ll just take a kick-ass September instead!

Books Read

  • Heartless by Marissa Meyer – 5/5 stars
  • Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1) by Leigh Bardugo – 4/5 stars

TWO BOOKS! That’s right! I went through a terrible reading slump that caused me to only read two complete books. I did start Crooked Kingdom and made about 100 pages into it, before finally setting it aside. I’m not gonna point the finger of blame anywhere specifically, but……. yes, CK caused my reading slump! Haha!
