August was unexpectedly busy with work and planning for the academic school year. It took a toll on my mental health and, honestly my reading time. I use my books as a coping tool for the busy and crazy life I live, but when things get too overwhelming, I make do with what I can.
While my results are not as impressive as July, I definitely had some good listens.
Books Complete by Format
In August, I finished 10 books: 0 were physical reads, 9 were audiobooks, and 1 was an eBooks.
There was not a lot of variety in my genre selection this month. I was in a mental health place that was not great and because of that my book selection for the most part was simple. I stuck with romance and fantasy. The fiction books were from book club and a buddy read. Those two books were a struggle, but they made it on the list.
Books by Ratings
There is not much to the book ratings this month. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of high ratings. There were some books I gave a blind chance to and others I was hoping for the best, with mixed reviews.
Last but certainly not least, the Best and the Worst of the month. This one is super easy for me to identify and should come as no surprise based on my reviews.
August was a rough one for me personally, but hopefully September will be better.
What did your August look like? What were your best and worst reads/listens?
