August Wrap Up



Hey, guys!

      This month, I read 13 books! Woo! I read a butt-ton of books before school started, but once school started I only read 1 book. To be honest, my first week of school wasn't even a "first week" because my hometown was hit by 8 tornados on my second day...and then campus was closed for the rest of the week. So this week is my first actual week of school. I finished a book and a ton of homework during the 5 days that I wasn't at school, so that's cool too! You can check out my reading updates on Twitter or Goodreads if you chose, but here are the books that I read this month!
