August 2020 Wrap-Up

So August was an interesting month. A lot happened in August and it honestly flew by pretty quickly  for me while simultaneously feeling like I've been in August forever. I had my birthday, visited family, secured an internship, found a new TV show to be obsessed with, and started my senior year of college. A lot happened and things are only just getting revved up for this semester.

Even though I'm remote learning and doing my internship from home, I am busier than ever. Add in my new obsession with binging Criminal Minds on top of blogging and being a book reviewer, I have very little time. In fact, I only read 3 books in August. I wanted to read 3 times that many but at the beginning of this year I promised myself that I wasn't going to force myself to read books when I wasn't feeling it. This month, I was stressed and didn't want to read. Then I found Criminal Minds and didn't want to read. I will say, of the 3 books I read this month, I enjoyed or loved all of them!

I'm hoping to read more in September, but the world is a crazy place right now and reading should always be a fun activity for me so I won't be forcing myself to read. How many books did you read in August? Let me know in the comments down below!

I wasn't planning on reading this book this month but when I saw it on Hoopla, I was so overcome with a wave of nostalgia that I decided to read the first few pages. That led to rereading the entire book at 1 am. This was one of my favorite series when I was younger (think elementary school) and I used to reread the first three books over and over. I also realized that I never finished this series, so I think it could be really fun to reread the books I have read and then finally finish the series many years later. 


Thanks for reading!
