August Reading Roundup

It was another great month for reading!  I was able to read 16 books (one off from last month)!  I seemed to vacillate between ultra serious books (The Miniaturist, by Jessie Burton, A Monster Calls, by Patrick Ness) and light-hearted reads (Rebel Belle, by Rachel Hawkins, The Rosie Project, by Simsion Graeme).  I made some headway in my enormous TBR pile, reading The Martian by Andy Weir, The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen, and Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee.  And I was able to continue to use audiobooks to lessen the monotony of the morning commute, listening to Not My Father's Son by Alan Cumming, and Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari.  Overall my favorite book of the month was The Wrath & The Dawn, by Renee Ahdieh.  I loved the writing, romance, and settings.  It showed love as complicated and messy.  With September comes a busier schedule for me, so I shall see if I can maintain this reading pace.

What did you read in August?  What was your favorite of the month?  Please leave a comment and let me know.

Here are all the titles, in no particular order:
