Closing the Chapter: August 2020

Welcome to Closing the Chapter! I hope you had a great reading month?

August is nearly done, the weather here has been so changeable but mostly hot, really hot, humid and rainy. I really don’t like the heat, summer always makes me realise that my ideal place to live would be somewhere where it’s permanently winter!

School starts again next week for my son although it’s going to be a lot different for him due to the COVID changes and I can’t say that it doesn’t worry me because this whole situation is uber worrying and our numbers seem to be rising again.

For August I decided that I needed to make a start reading the Fairyloot books I had outstanding. I thought I had 9 but it was actually 11 (sigh!) so I knew I wasn’t going to be able to read all those in one month!

This is how I got on!

Mirage by Somiaya Daud – See my review here.

Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust – See my review here.

Forest of Souls by Lori M Lee – See my review here.

Viper by Bex Hogan – See my review here.

The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna – See my review here.

Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend – See my review here.

Shielded by Kaylynn Flanders – Look out for my review soon!

The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli – DNF – I had to put this one down as I just wasn’t feeling it. I really wanted to……because dragons.

The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh – Again, was a DNF for me. This was the 2nd time I’ve tried to read and I couldn’t warm up to a main character at all and it ruined it for me 🙁

Dark Fairytales – various – See my review here.

Court of Lions by Somaiya Daud – Look out for my review soon!


What did you read in August?
