August Wrap Up

Wrap Up (2)

August was not the best reading month, especially since I was on holiday and thought I would have more time to read.  Unfortunately, there were a lot of distractions and reading just was not a priority this month.  I was also let down by a couple books this month and it caused me to have a little reading slump! Thankfully, I also read some wonderful books in August that have become all time favourites!

Favourite Books: I’ll Give You the Sun, A Man Called Ove


I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson- My favourite YA book of all time.  So beautiful! Jandy Nelson is a masterful writer. I have a full review here.


A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman- I have a feeling you will see this book on my favourites list at the end of year! So charming and heartfelt! I have nothing but good things to say about this book.


The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah- I liked it but not as much as I thought that I would.  It was an interesting story but I didn’t connect to the characters. I posted a review which you can read here.


Uprooted by Naomi Novik-  I have mixed feelings! There were some things I really enjoyed about this book but for the most part it wasn’t for me.  I was not a fan of the main character or the romance.  I did like the concept and thought it had a lot of potential.


Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy- I really enjoyed this book! I thought it was funny and charming.  I am really excited to see the movie! It definitely helped me out of a reading slump!  I am hoping to post a review very soon.


Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

  1. I agree with you about Uprooted. It was an okay book and had a lot going for it, but I was not a fan of the romance at all!

  2. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman loved this book so much!! It’s on my favorite list as well. And I loved the historical aspect of The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah I didn’t know that nightingales even existed so that was a wonderful side product from reading it – but it’s not a book I would recommend. 🙁

  3. I’ll give you the sun is a book that will should all read while eating candy and under the sun with some lemonade… I don’t know why but it makes me feel like that xD great book indeed!!

  4. I also read A Man Called Ove this month and absolutely loved it! I loved that it talked about deep things, but with a light tone. I give major props to any book that manages to make me laugh out loud and cry my eyes out.

  5. I haven’t ready ANY of these 😭. I started a Man Called Ove on audio and then had to return the audiobook because I couldn’t finish it on time. Sigh. I really should get to it soon. Great reading month!
