Reading Update: August 2018

Books and Coffee

I have met most of my reading goals for this year. I read a lot more over the summer than I had planned on reading. I have some new personal reading goals I want to achieve, but, first, I want to finish what I’ve started. So, that means I’m trying to be a little more focused on what I’m reading to check off some of the reading goals I’ve set for myself.

Weekly Wrap-Ups

This month I started doing a weekly update about the books on my radar. For a more detailed look at the books I’m reading, check out my weekly wrap-ups every Friday.

The breakdown for my August reading is 17 physical books, 18 ebooks, and 21 audiobooks. My ratings and reviews for all 56 books can be found on Goodreads. Some of my favorites read in August were Circe, An Unwanted Guest, Where the Crawdads Sing, and Jane Doe.
