It’s been quite some time since July’s wrap up post, and despite feeling that August moved by so quickly, it still seems as though July was eons ago. I got so much done this past month. Granted, that Goodreads challenge update does include five books I read since September began, but it’s still a pretty impressive feat.



I can’t believe it’s September already. It feels like August was barely a blip in time with how fast it went by. And honestly, a part of me feels kind of exhausted. I can’t believe how much I got done this past month. In thirty-one days I managed to read 32 books and write 28 reviews. Now, I’ll say that the Disneyathon and NetGalley’s Reviewathon likely played a role in how much reading and reviewing I managed to get done, but I’m still pretty proud of it.

the last magicianFor the month of August, the best book that I read is hands down Lisa Maxwell’s The Last Magician. I didn’t expect to be blown away by this book when I picked it up as the Group Book for the Disneyathon. Fortunately, this book was filled with a magic that amazed me beyond belief and I’m so incredibly glad that I was brought to read it.
