I read 7 books in August.
1. Reality TV Bites by Shane Bolks
This was a very light read. At some parts, I lost interest but towards the middle/end of the book, it was good. I rated it 2 stars on Goodreads.com.
2. Behind Closed Doors -B.A. Paris
I loved this book. The writing was great it kept me on the edge of my seat. If you like a good mystery novel, I definitely recommend this book. B.A. Paris just released a new book and I'm on the wait list for it at my library. I rated this book 4 stars.
3. The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily -Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
I loved this book, which is the follow up to Dash & Lily's Book of Dares. Even though I read it during the Summer, it totally put me in the Christmas mood! I hope they write more books starring these characters in the future. I rated it 5 stars.
4. Into The Water by Paula Hawkins
I had really high hopes for this novel since I absolutely loved Paula Hawkin's debut novel, The Girl on The Train. However, this book had so many characters in it and kept jumping around a lot that it was hard to keep up. Overall, I did like it, but not nearly as much as I loved her first novel. I rated it 4 stars on Goodreads.com but I would have rated it 3.5 stars if they would have allowed half stars.
5. Still Missing -Chevy Stevens
This book was definitely creepy but overall I still enjoyed it. I've read another book by this author and I have the rest of her novels on my TBR list. This book isn't my favorite as it took me a while to get into it but once I did, I liked it. I rated it 3 stars.
6. All The Summer Girls -Meg Donohue
This book took me a while to get into but once I did, I enjoyed it. It wasn't my favorite book but I did like it. I rated it 3 stars.
7. Forever, Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I love this author and this book was great. It was really sad but I knew it was going to be going into it because of the summary of the story line. I have two more books of this author's that I want to read but only one of them is available at my library. I rated this 4 stars.
My favorite books of August are The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily, Forever Interrupted, & Behind Closed Doors.
