When I started planning for this challenge, August seemed to be so far away. Well, here we are in the middle of August and this reading challenge is coming to a close! It is a little bitter sweet because I have really enjoyed taking hold of my reading schedule and actually dusting off a few of the books sitting on my physical shelves and reading them. However, I would be lying if I didn’t let you know how excited I am to crack open the stack of books that I have to review in the next few weeks. I suppose it is a way for me to recharge a little bit. I have definitely figured out my reading habits and scheduling backlist books into the schedule is something that I intend to do more often in the upcoming months.
These are all of the books that I planned to read over the summer, plus one additional book, A Stranger in the House, that I added half way through. These books can all be found on my Goodreads shelf, if you are interested in learning more about them.
My favourite reads this summer were:
I listened to both The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and Noteworthy on Audible and absolutely loved both of these books. I intend to insert a few more audiobooks into my TBR from now on. I really enjoyed being able to read a book while attending to other things. You can’t go wrong with Sarah J. Maas in my opinion, so it is no surprise to me that I loved A Court of Mist and Fury so much. Also, Something Like Happy is a book that really took me by surprise! This one has so many layers to it and really had a nice message to find positivity in your life.
I hope that everyone who participated enjoyed this challenge and that you were able to make at least a small dent in your TBRs! Thanks so much for joining me. If you have any suggestions for future challenges, I would love to hear from you.
