Amanda’s August Wrap Up

Hi, lovelies! Sadly, my birthday month is over. But I had a great reading month. I was on vacation visiting my parents for most of the month. I got to read on the beach and it was glorious. It’s all I’ve wanted to do all summer, so I was in my happiest place on Earth (the beach). It was a great month for me personally and I’m happy with what I’ve read.

Another month down and what a month it was. I participated in Tome Topple and managed to read a few of my bigger books. I also was attempting to read at least fifteen books so that I would be able to buy some of the new releases in September that I’m very excited about. I’m trying to get my physical TBR down, but I always seem to buy too many new books once I finally get it down to like 70 books. So, here is what I read in the month of August!
