Month In Review: August 2014


September is already two days old and with a new season starting soon, it’s time to incorporate a new feature: a monthly wrap up! I’ve been wanting to do this kind of monthly summary for a while now, and finally came around actually posting one.

August has been quite a busy month… I participated in two read-a-thons: the Dusting Off The Shelf read-a-thon hosted by Emily at Books & Cleverness AND the Bout Of Books 11 read-a-thon hosted at Bout Of Books. And although I wasn’t able to read as many books as I would have hoped for in August, I still made it to eight finished books and I’m about half way done with the ninth (Awakening Foster Kelly by Cara Rosalie Olsen). Not bad if you consider that I didn’t have as much reading time as I would have hoped… Somehow having three little kittens to take care of takes away a lot of your reading time! Poor little things have been having an eye infection, but are a lot better now.

This August was also my blog anniversary, I reached the milestone of a hundred books read since I started by blog in November 2012 and I’ve also received my very first ARC’s through the Guest Reviewer Program at Ethereal Book Reviews! 😀 This year alone I’ve read 54 books so far; only 16 left to complete the Goodreads reading challenge. Hopefully September will bring me more reading time!  Now on to some numbers:

  • Number of books read in August: 8 (1/2)
  • Total number of books read this year: 54 (1/2)
  • Total number of pages read in August: 3.427
  • Total number of pages read this year: 19.938

This month I was actually quite lucky with my choices with five out of eight books rated four stars or higher and the lowest rating being three stars. Hopefully I will be just as lucky in September! The books I read in August are listed below sorted by rating from high to low:

    • I’m glad you liked Eleanor & Park and Throne Of Glass as well! The Name Of The Wind is one of my favorite reads this year and without doubt worth reading if you like fantasy. 🙂
