Everything I did in August |Wrap-Up

Hello everyone and again welcome to the blog! For those of you that missed my two other posts of the day I will link them again. I posted a review of The Wayward Girls by Amanda Mason which you can find here and my Disney-a-thon + NEWTS Wrap-up which can be found here.

And now without further ado let’s start with this rather long wrap-up.

#1 – Hello Girls by Brittany Cavallaro and Emily Henry – ebook* – 336 pages – 3 stars – Review

I did have some troubles with his book but I’m glad that I sticked through it because there were some great passages in this book. Thanks to the FFBC Team for having me on that tour!

#2 – T-Minus by Shannon Greenland – ebook* – 320 pages – 5 stars – Review

This book was seriously amazing and it reminded me so much of the show Designated Survivor that you can find on Netflix. Huge thanks to Xpresso Book Tours for having me on that blog tour!

#3 – Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo – The Shadow and Bone Trilogy #2 – paperback – 406 pages – 4 Stars

I liked this book better than the first one but I still can’t warm up to The Darkling. However towards the end I found the book to be a tiny bit too long! Maybe book 3 will be even better? Let’s cross our fingers.

#4 – The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman – paperback – 352 pages – 5 stars

OMG!!!!! I couldn’t get enough of this book. It was, is so amazing! You need to read it. I found my new favourite book of the year and a new auto-buy author because if every book of her is that good I guess that I will enjoy all of her works!

#5 – How the light gets in by Katy Upperman – ebook* – 336 pages – 4 stars – Review

This was such a heartbreaking book to read. Why do books have to be so sad? I’m really glad that I could be a part of this FFBC Blog Tour!


#6 – Someone New by Laura Kneidl – Someone New #1 – 550 pages – 5 stars

I never thought that I would love a new adult book as much as I loved this one but I did. Who am I, to love books about romance? What the heck is going on?

#7 – Ajin: Semi-Humain, Tome 3 by Gamon Sakurai – paperback – 194 pages – 4 stars

I rarely read mangas so I was pretty surprised when I started this manga and immediately loved it. I hope that the next books will be translated ASAP. I think that they translated up to tome 5. But I’m not sure now!

#8 – Finding Me by Kelly Gunderman – ebook* – 306 pages – 4 stars – Review

And here we are again with another heartbreaking story! I’m slowly getting used to it. Finding Me was a brilliant book about the meaning of life and what’s really important. I liked it a lot and I can only recommend it to every age group. Huge thanks to the author for gifting me a copy and to FFBC for making it possible to be a part of the tour!

#9 – A Man of Shadows by Jeff Noon – John Nyquist #1 – paperback – 384 pages – 2 stars

I’m still nice with my 2 skas because I wanted to DNF the book at first but then I managed to get through it. The book just didn’t work for me!

#10 – Ready Player One by Ernest Cline – Ready Player One #1 – paperback – 374 pages – 3 stars

It was an okay read for me. I had higher expectations and they weren’t met. However it was still an amazing reading experience but as I read the Warcross books a while ago it reminded me too much of it. Sometimes I had a strange feeling of déjà-vu. But I guess that sci-fi books are kind of repetitive.


#11 – I Hate the Internet by Jarett Kobek – paperback – 288 pages – 1 star

A big NOPE from me. This was definitely not my thing!

#12 – These Witches don’t burn by Isabel Sterling – These Witches don’t burn #1 – audiobook – 336 pages – 5 stars

This book was so good! SO good that I wasn’t even able to fall asleep. You have to know that I usually listen to podcast or audiobooks before falling asleep but yep it didn’t work with that one. The book was way too interesting and the narration well done!!

#13 – The Wayward Girls by Amanda Mason – ebook* – 480 ages – 5 stars – Review

Scary, gripping, bloody, spooky and thrilling. What can a girl hope to have more in a fantastic book in this genre? Exactly this is perfection!!

#14 – The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah – audiobook – 440 pages – 4 stars

This book was great but I had a feeling that I didn’t quite understand everything I will however give it a chance again later in the year by reading it alone. It was still a great read I guess that I just need to read it by myself!


I’ve read 14 books in total which makes it 5102 pages. I’ve listened to three audiobooks, 5 ebooks and 6 paperbacks. What about you?

#1 – Conversation with a killer: the Ted Bundy TapesSeason 1 – Episode 1 – Rating: 5/5

#2 – Stranger ThingsSeason 2 – Episodes: 1-2 – Rating: 4/5

#3 – Derry GirlsSeason 1 – Rating: 3/55

Well I didn’t use my Netflix account that often. I definitely need to use it more again!

#1 – Mordlust – Episode 10-11

#2 – True Crime Garage – Episode 280

Uni definitely needs to start again because I need to listen to some podcasts again!!

And this was everything for today. I promise there won’t be another post coming! What did you do in August? Please let me know in the comments below!


*These books were kindly sent to me by the publisher, author, blog tour organiser in exchange for an honest review!
