August 2018 WrapUp

Reading Wrap Up for August 2018

Here’s my reading wrap up for August! First, I am planning on stepping up my reading for the remainder of the year; we’ll see if I can reach my goals. 

I have joined The Classics Club and created a list of classics – of course – written by womxn, BIWOC, GNC, etc. to read but it means I need to complete two more books each month to stay on track! Check out my list. I start reading my first two selections this month.

So here’s my bookish August!

I read:

I listened to one audiobook:

  • Born a Crime by Trevor Noah – Didn’t post a review on my site but LOVED it.

I wrote four book reviews for my site:

I also had two reviews published in the latest Resources for Gender and Women’s Studies: A Feminist Review (v. 39, no. 1):

I posted:

This month I watched HBO’s Sharp Objects which – do I have to tell you?! – is AMAZING. Partway through I was wondering why I didn’t read the book first! I had read Gone Girl and didn’t love it, that’s why. But I have since heard that Sharp Objects was better than Gone Girl. Oh well, you can’t read ’em all.

Reading Wrap Up for August included the show Sharp Objects
Me wondering why I didn’t read Sharp Objects before watching the show.

August’s Book Haul:

That’s the reading wrap up for August – here’s a look ahead to September!

  1. I need to read Trevor Noah’s book. I’ve wanted to but it it keeps getting put off for some reason. (the reason is I have too many books to read! lol)

    I didn’t like Gone Girl either so I’ve stayed away from Sharp Objects. Maybe I should reconsider.

    Good luck meeting your goals the rest of the year Karla.

  2. Welcome to the Classics Club! I am afraid I am not doing so well in keeping up, although I am reading classics. Just not as many as I need to in order to make it to the goal mark. I am not stressing over it though. It is what it is. Sounds like you have a good reading plan for the rest of the year! I love how organized you are. I haven’t read or seen Sharp Objects. One of these days. Have a wonderful September!

  3. Congratulations on your two reviews published 🙂 I started Gone Girl and couldn’t get through it, I ended stopping about chapter 4. I may have to give Sharp Objects a read. Have a wonderful September!

  4. Just saw another book by a Nigerian author on your list which I will now add to my TBR list. This month, I’m reading Moonflower by Esther Edoho (Poetry), Kasali’s Africa by Feyisayo Anjorin (short stories) and Always Yours by Somi Ekhasomhi (Romance).

  5. I need to read Children of Blood and Bone and hope I can get my hands on a copy this year. Good luck with your challenges!

  6. I have Born a Crime sitting unread in my Audible account. I really need to remedy that situation before the end of the year. I haven’t read Gone Girl or Sharp Objects but was wondering about the show. Glad to know that it would be worth watching. Have a great September!

  7. I have heard good things about Sharp Objects on HBO, but I haven’t seen it yet. I also have not read the book. I mostly enjoyed Gone Girl. It was the end that made me not like it as much.

    I just finished reading Coraline, which I felt so so about, but I have no idea what I’m going to read next. I was hoping it would be the sequel to Crazy Rich Asians, but I’m still on my library’s waiting list for that one.

  8. It looks like you had an amazing August and here’s hoping that September is going just as wonderfully! I hope you are loving Children of Blood and Bone, I still need to pick that one up but it seems like everyone that opens or listens to that books absolutely loves it. Enjoy!
