August Top 5

August is gone! August is my favorite month for many reasons - summer, the anticipation of fall, the movement that comes with going to school or starting new things, and reveling in the last days of relaxation. Also, it's my birthday month. So I'm going to miss August, but after August comes my favorite season - autumn. But first, a look back at the best books I read in August. These are some books that immediately went straight to my heart - and kind of make me want to do cartwheels, even though that would be disastrous. 

1. Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
It's a humorous gothic tale. It's impossible not to laugh. It's impossible not to fall in love. Read my review here

2. The Diviners by Libba Bray
I'll read anything Libba Bray writes. This book is brilliant and so worth the nightmares it brings. I'll have a review on this one up soon! 

3. Embers & Echoes by Karsten Knight
The second book in the Wildefire series blew me away. SO insane. So awesome. And in case you're worried, this ending is mean, but not as mean as the ending to Wildefire. I'll have a review up soon. 

4. Defiance by C.J. Redwine
Great characters that live in a vibrant and imaginative world. Plus, Rachel and Logan's relationship is so sigh-worthy. Read my review here

5. Every Day by David Levithan
This book feels important AND it's a great story to get lost in. It'll make you ponder the meaning of identity and it will make you cry. Read my review here

What were your top reads this month?

  2. I've only read one of these (Defiance), but I own three of them and REALLY need Embers & Echoes too.
