August 2019 Wrap Up

Okay ladies and gents! Let’s get into this. I think I did much better this month than the past two. I feel like June and July were slump months for me, but I managed to pull up my socks for August. I didn’t get all my TBR books read, but I did get a good chunk done.

One.
The First Phone Call From Heaven (Mitch Albom)
Rating:
3 Stars
Genre: Fiction
Recommendation: Quick read – go for it
Overall: Not the best Albom book, but I did enjoy it and it was worth the read.

If My Body Could Speak (Blythe Baird)
Rating:
5 Stars
Genre: Poetry
Recommendation: Absolutely pick this up! And go watch the author on YouTube preform some of her poetry – she’s amazing!
Overall: I can’t get enough of this book; I’ve had to read it a few times (especially my favourite ones). So good! Amazing.

Four.
Red Queen (Victoria Aveyard)
Rating:
3 Stars
Genre: Fiction/Fantasy
Recommendation: Enjoy slow and steady? This one’s for you!
Overall: This book was a slow slow read. I almost DNF’d it because each plot point was dragged out so incredibly long. But the ending was pretty awesome, so I’m probably going to give the next book a try!
