The Monthly Recap: August 2019


Hey guys!

August is over which means Autumn is here and I HAVE RISEN FROM THE DEAD! All fall related things are starting to pop up around NYC and I’m so excited. The temperature has also gotten a lot cooler which means sweater weather is right around the corner. Ok but back to August, this month flew the fuck by. I can’t even believe that it’s already the end of the month because it felt like it just started. August was a little stressful month for me work wise and I’ve also been having trouble sleeping again. Hopefully September will be a much better month and maybe I’ll finally get some sleep! Anyways, let’s get to this month’s recap.

Let’s get started!

I read a total of 13 books this month and DNFed 3 book! I don’t think I’ve ever DNFed so many books in my bookworm life before but I wasn’t willing to stick it out for those books so I just threw in the towel. My favorite reads for this month were Better Than This, Flashed, That Forever Girl, Things You Save in a Fire and Well Met.

I think this is the only book I’m excited for but I’ve also not been keeping up with new releases so I’m not exactly sure what books are releasing in September, lol.


That’s all for the month of August. Let me know in the comments which September romance releases you all are most excited for!

I'm Ari, a local NYC bibliophile and a forever daydreamer. You can usually find me with my nose buried in a book and my head up in the clouds. I am also a coffee addict and a chocolate connoisseur. I fell in love with the romance genre about three years ago and I haven't been able to stop reading about happily-ever-afters, which is ironic because I'm a bit of a cynical romantic in real life, haha. I hope you all enjoy my blog and fangirling with me about all the smutty reads!
