August 2017 | Monthly Wrap Up

Welcome September! And Goodbye August! Hello red leaves, the cool breeze and flying scarfs. Hello Fall!

Reading in this past month of August has been very lucrative for me. I managed to finish a whooping number of books. Well, at least what qualifies as “whooping” for me which is eight books this August! Without even planning to. Since I’m currently on vacation and my siblings are busy living in their own world, I’ve had a lot of free time in my hands.

August Stats:
Total books read: 8
Total pages read: 3,471
Average rating: 3.75
25/8 (100%) standalones, 6/8 (75%) series
