  1. Looking forward to your review of number 11 and 16. You had a good month, like always!! I read max 4 books a month *hides face*

    I hope that in September you will read only 4 too ;) and maybe Les Mis will help with that ;) You can tackle The Count of Monte Cristo while you're at it (reading lenghty books)

    1. Too many people read ZERO books a month so I think 4 is fab :)

      I've been wanting to tackle Monte Cristo, oh and Don Quixote too! One day :)

    2. I've heard DQ is quite... BORING :) (Isi!)

  2. You did awesome this past month! Good for you! :) August was a pretty stellar month for me -- not sure if I can replicate that in September, but I will try!

    Have a good day!

    1. Thanks Kristilyn! Did you do a wrap up post for August? I'm going to have to check :D

  3. I'm interested to see what you thought of Five Days at Memorial. It sounds like a very heartbreaking story.

    Congrats on an awesome August and here's hoping for a super September! (I have an alliteration problem...)

  6. I read 3 novellas and 4 books this month. Not that much, but I've been very busy at work and I've been on vacation, so I think it's okay. You did a very good job reading so much! :)

    1. I think that's a great amount. Think of all the people out there that don't read at all! Ahhh!

  7. Ass-kicking August is right! I hope September goes just as well!

    1. Me too! It depends on how long it takes me to wrap-up Les Mis. ;) Of course I'm happy with quality over quantity!

  10. Woo boy! Impressive! I have to confess I haven't even HEARD of most of your list, much less read them. I'm finally reading The Engagements by Courtney Sullivan, which I guess everyone else read a long time ago!

    1. Guess what? I've never read Engagements so you're one up on me, lol. ;)

  11. Congratulations on a great August! Interesting list. My August was only so-so in terms of reading (I just wasn't a huge fan of anything I read). I'm hoping September will be better! I'm reading mostly non-fiction this week (What Makes a Hero? and The Book of Immortality).

    1. Those months are kind of a bummer aren't they? It happens sometimes though. Boo! Here's to having a much better September :) I love nonfiction, I'll have to look up the two you mentioned.

    1. It WAS a fabulous month, hooray! I don't think I'll read quite as much in September as I'm still finishing up Les Mis and the schedule is going to get a little tighter as school starts ;)

      Delete
  13. I'm totally looking forward to September, too! There are so many great titles to share, like some of those great ones at the end of your list. Looking forward to seeing your reviews.

  17. I'm trying to work out if this is ever so slightly more than 'usual'. Difficult to say with the sheer number of books you read! What's the year count up to now?

    1. This is a wee bit more than usual ;) I think I'm at 148 for the year?

  20. I don't think you sleep! :) A great list of reads for August! I just read your review of Cain's Necessary Errors and think I would enjoy this one. I haven't read a novel set in Prague that I can recall so this would be a nice little journey. Thanks for sharing! I am looking forward to your September reading list.
    Happy Reading,

    1. Lol Rebecca ;) The setting of Necessary Errors was great. I hadn't read anything set in Prague either. (That I can remember anyway) I learned a lot.

  25. We read the same number of books in August! *high five*

    Although you read a lot more non-fiction than me, I think... and I read more graphic novels... but I was busy getting ready to move and stuff so I still count it as a win ;-)

    1. That's definitely worthy of a high five. We rule. That's a fact Jack.
