August 2017 Wrap-up & Mini-reviews

This beginning of August caught me in a right reading slump and I barely read anything. I hoped that once WWReadathon will begin in the last week of August, I will be once again cured, and thank Heavens that I was actually right! Only the sight of a book would induce me into a right panic and I am betting my money to fault is the huge pile of Books To Be Read next to me. It is literally huge!

So this month I only managed to read… four books! FOUR books!!!!! Like what’s that?! 😞At least, with the exception of one book, all my reads have ticked at least 4 stars, although I am gutted that I did not manage to complete the WWReadathon. I went quite strong until I was coming home from work too tired to read. I am quite upset as this is the second one that I am unable to complete, however I am still going to finish my TBR for it. I have three books left to read in the pile, and this are thankfully smaller in size than Feed (had a lot of pages!).

                  What I read:
  1. Two Cabins, One Lake (Alaskan Romance #1) by  Shaye Marlow. I actually started this book in July, but didn’t finish it until August. I really struggled to get to the end as after the first few chapters, the book was fuelled only by sexual desire and and incredible amount of stupidity. I ended up skipping through pages just to see how it would end, and omg! I do not know where that ending came from. I really tried, but unfortunately it wasn’t for me. ⭐
  2. Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon. I was waiting for quite some time to read this book and I was so not disappointed. It pulled me right out of my reading slump and hooked me in. I will do a full review on it soon. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  3. Feed by Mira Grant. This is another book that I’ve been dying to read and it was amazing! A little slow paced for my taste, however it was very well executed, so another ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  4. His Viking bride by Olivia Norem. Last, but not least, this romance novel was actually well written, with interesting characters, and a spunky female protagonist. I really enjoyed reading this, so ⭐⭐⭐⭐

 

 

I also went halfway through I am number 4 by Pittacus Lore, but I am struggling to finish it. For some reason I cannot get to care that much for the main character so had to more or less force myself to continue reading and I have 100+ more pages to read! I know this is a really hyped up book, and that a lot of people love it, however it did not work for me. Have you read any hyped-up book and you ended up not liking it?
