I have read 8 books this month – less than I wanted but this was a busy month for me
DNF? (Did Not Finish) Had two DNF – I ran out of time
1 stars: None as usual, but had no 2 stars either!
Genres: historical romance, historical mystery, contemporary romance, erotica, graphic novel, SF and fantasy, mystery
1. Were you happy with the amount you read?
I like to keep my reading score above 10 per month so this was below my goal. I had planned to read twelve books for August. I read eight and I’m in the process of reading two more. It was a busy month and I ran out of time.
Reading in progress:
Fly Me to the Moon by Alyson Noël
Kingdom Come by Mark Waid (Author), Alex Ross (Artist), Todd Klein (Calligrapher)
2. If you had a 5 star read, what was it and why?
My 5 star read for August is Until You (Fall Away Series) by Penelope Douglas. It is second book in the series and I loved character interactions. It was YA steamy drama and I liked that about it as well! I will continue to read this series in ebook form and will get to reading next book in line when I buy it!
3. If you had a 1 or 2 star read, what was it and why?
I had no 1 or 2 stars books in August. Most of my reading was plain OK for the genre in question.
4. Any new book boyfriends?
None this month – this may be part of the reason why I haven’t reached my reading goals!
5. Any new jerks?
James aka Jimmy from Sentence of Marriage (Promises to Keep: Book 1) by Shayne Parkinson! That’s just a real a$$hole and jerk! I had a horrible time even reading about him in the books since it was plain to see what kind of character he is from the start! UGH! Also his sister Susannah was quite a jerkette as well!
6. Did you start any new series?
Woah I started 4 new series this month…how did that happen?
There were two graphic novel series
The Spark and the Flame (Constantine Vol. 1 The New 52) by Jeff Lemire, Ray Fawkes – I would like to continue
Gods Among Us (Injustice: Vol. 1) by Tom Taylor
One was historical romance series
Sentence of Marriage (Promises to Keep: Book 1) by Shayne Parkinson
I’m curious to continue
and the last one was erotic romance series
Jasmine Plays Her Hand (Fantasy Guild No. 1) by Anwen Stiles
which was a fun read I might continue.
7. Did you find any new authors that you loved?
No new authors but Penelope Douglas moved to favorite authors !
