I read five books this month, four of which were library books. I'm 85% done with one more on my kindle, which I will try to finish tonight.

I‘m not going to finish the book I‘m currently reading, so I can post my stats.

Not as much reading as I usually get done. Had a slump, unpacking/organizing my new house, bailed on a few books.

Favorite Reads: tagged book (listened on audio), Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean

Least Favorite Reads: Once A Scoundrel

Here‘s what I managed to read in August. Still working on Next Year In Havana, but August isn‘t over yet! #augusthaulandwrapup #auginbooks18 #augustwrapup #augustisatrip #auguststats #readingresolutions

vkois88 ❤❤❤ 1y
MellieAntoinette How was All the Good Parts? It has a beautiful cover! 😍 1y

Since this month's theme was locations, I thought a good #AugustWrapUp would be to share the locations where the books I read this month took place. Not bad! #AugustIsATrip

@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @vkois88

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Love it!! 💚💚💚 1y
Lcsmcat Cool idea! 1y
Booksnchill What was the Nashville book??? 1y
See All 14 Comments
MallenNC @Booksnchill All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin is set in Nashville. 1y
MallenNC @Lcsmcat Thanks! It was fun to look back and see where these books were set. 1y
Booksnchill @MallenNC don‘t know that one- do you recommend? 1y
vkois88 What book took place in Charlottesville? 1y
MallenNC @Booksnchill I liked it but it wasn't my favorite. It was a quick read and it kept my interest though. 1y
MallenNC @vkois88 Jenny Han's To All The Boys I've Loved Before series is set there. I was surprised bc the movie didn't seem like it was set there to me. (edited) 1y
vkois88 Oh yeah, I forget they mentioned UVa... but the rest of it actually mostly takes place in Crozet. It's about a 15-20 min drive, thus the appeal for Margot to go to UVa 😊😊😊 it's been so long since I read it and even though I watched the movie the other day, they didn't mention it at all 😕 1y
MallenNC @vkois88 I am in NC so I just thought they lived in Charlottesville. The movie they seemed to be in California, like a lot of teen movies seem! 1y
vkois88 Yeah, sadly, it did 😔 They had a cool opportunity to show what a close knit small town was like and they didn't take advantage of it all 1y
MallenNC @vkois88 If they end up making sequel movies, I wonder what they'll do since the college search is a big part of the third book. I hope they use the names of the real schools, because I enjoyed that! 1y
vkois88 Me too!! 1y
