August felt like a really blah month for me. After my incredibly productive July, I felt like I had no time to really do anything in August. I somehow managed to read six books though, so yay me, but I didn’t produce as many posts as I’m used to. I can’t believe summer is almost over. I feel excited about all the Halloween decorations appearing in stores, but the Christmas ones still seem too soon. This month marks the end of the Summer 2017 Comment Challenge that I cohost with Lonna @ FLYLēF. This challenge is one of my favorite parts about being a book blogger. We do have a special announcement for future challenges that will be posted on our blogs at the beginning of September, so look for that.

Favorite Book This Month:
I loved loved loved Kathryn Ormsbee’s Tash Hearts Tolstoy about an aspiring filmmaker who discovers the pitfalls of internet fame. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this book. The characters were so enjoyable. I can’t wait to share my full review with you. Cover linked to Goodreads.
Least Favorite Book This Month:
Earlier this year I took a break from ARCs, but have recently been approved for a few. This first one on my list was not a winner. Too bad because the cover is pretty lovely. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
