Monthly Wrap Up: August 2021

I set myself the challenge of reading 10 books over the summer, and I have smashed that total, as I have read a total of 21 books over August. 😊 Most of these have had reviews posted already, and the rest will be posted closer to their publishing dates.

Goodreads challenge:

I have completed my Goodreads 2021 reading challenge this month. I had set it to 50 books and I never believed I would hit that target at the beginning of the year.

I will have to set a slightly higher challenge next year.

Paperback books completed:

Here are the 12 paperback’s I completed in August 2021, the links for the reviews are clickable from the book title:

My Books of the month:

This is a really hard choice this month as I have read so many great books. I have chosen one paperback and one ARC:

πŸ’œ Before I Met You by Lisa Jewell

πŸ’œ We Are All Liars – Carys Jones

This was an amazing month for books, and looking forward to next month’s reading. I am unlikely to be able to read quite as much as I am back to work now, but I will try to read as much as I can.

Thank you all for reading πŸ’•

Are there any of these books you have read or are looking forward to reading?
