August 2017 Reading Wrap Up



Hey, guys!

      This past month was so busy! Because I've been preparing for my second year of college, I've been frantically getting all of the last minute odds and ends sorted out. I've been writing up a storm so that I can have as many blog posts posted on time as possible.  Throughout that month, I managed to read 7 books and 2 novellas. I also, unfortunately, DNF'd two books and managed to have 5+ books on my currently reading shelf by the end of the month. Here are the books I actually finished this month.
