August Wrap Up

Hello everyone! Sorry this wrap up is a bit late, last week was a super busy week for me so I didn't manage to get anything done. I was working a lot, and my cousin was over from New Zealand so I spent some time with her, and then the rest of the time I spent in bed because I was exhausted! Hopefully this month isn't as jam packed!
Movie-wise, this month I saw 7 movies at the cinema: Finding Dory - a brilliant and hilarious sequel; Suicide Squad - much better than I thought it was going to be!; Nerve - AMAZING! My favourite of the month; The Shallows - a bit boring and they didn't show you the good parts; Mike and Dave Need Weddings Dates - very bad and stupid, but a bit funny; War Dogs - very, very good movie and Miles Teller is fantastic! and lastly, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping - not as good as I'd hoped, but it was alright.

Book-wise I managed to read 13 books (9 of which were re-reads). I'm powering through my re-read of the Morganville Vampire series. I honestly forgot how much I loved this series and the characters. I just can't get enough!
1. Midnight Alley by Rachel Caine
2. Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins
3. Feast of Fools by Rachel Caine
4. Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine
5. Carpe Corpis by Rachel Caine
6. It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
7. Wanderlost by Jen Malone
8. Fade Out by Rachel Caine
9. Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
10. Kiss of Death by Rachel Caine
11. Ghost Town by Rachel Caine
12. Kissing in America by Margo Rabb
13. Bite Club by Rachel Caine

It Ends With Us was hands down my favourite book of the month. I still need to process my thoughts of the book, but it was definitely the best book I read in August.

So, for September, I'm going to continue my Morganville Vampires re-read (and hopefully finish it!), and I'm also reading The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen - which I'm loving - so I'll probably grab the second book in the series too. Empire of Storms is finally out this month. To be honest, I'm not particularly looking forward to it anymore after all the spoilers - which I'm still hoping aren't true! - but we'll see when it comes out.

So that's my August wrap up! Let me know what the best book you read in August for and which book your most looking forward to reading this month!

  1. I really enjoyed the MV series (loved Myrnin!), but I have to admit the last few books got a bit boring for me. ;o I'm looking forward to Crooked Kingdom this month!

  3. I've heard mixed things about Suicide squad, so I guess I just have to watch it and see for myself :) Finding Dory is on my MUST WATCH AS SOON AS POSSIBLE list.
