My (late) August Wrap-Up!

This is a few weeks late (as most of my posts seem to be of late…), but here is my August Wrap-up!


I finished 6 books in the month of August).

Here are the ratings for the books I completed.


Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices, #1) by  Cassandra Clare ~ 5/5⭐️ *I was so happy to be able to read another book set in the Shadowhunters’ world, and this “new” set of characters were able to find a place in my heart so that I am dying to see more of them!!
What the Dead Want by Norah Olson ~ 1/5⭐️ *This was such a disappointment for me, considering how much I enjoy books of the supernatural variety, but unfortunately this one I just did not like.
November Rain (Bad Bloods, #1) by Shannon A. Thompson ~ 4/5⭐️ *I really liked this book and found it to be more original, plot-wise, then a lot of YA books I’ve read in recent years. I’ll have to make sure to read part 2 of Bad Bloods to see how this cliffhanger continues!
And I Darken (The Conqueror’s Saga, #1) by Keirsten White ~ 4/5⭐️ *This was such a cool book! Albeit, the first half was pretty slow for me, but the second blew my mind! The MC, Lada, is one of the more fascinating characters I’ve read in a while, and I can’t wait to read more about her.
Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1) by Marissa Meyer ~ 4/5⭐️ *Yes, I boarded the Lunar Chronicles train a million years too late, but I’ve finally climbed aboard (yup, I’m really going with this train analogy) to find that I did like this book and will be sure to continue on with this series!
The Graces (The Graces, #1) by Laure Eve  ~ 2/5⭐️ *I really really disliked the MC, Rain, and if not for the fact that I feel like I have to see what happened after the cliffhanger that ended this book…I probably would not have given this 2 stars – and would not be subjecting myself to another book about her – but cliffhangers be getting the best of me at times.


Would love to hear any thoughts if you’ve read any of these, and what books you’ve finished in the month of August that I should be sure to add to my TBR! (If I haven’t already, that is.)
