I read a total of 17 books in August. Eight were young adult books and the rest adult books. You can see the spreadsheet of my progress here. I read a lot of very good books this month.
The Friendship Doll by Kirby Larson. You can see my review here.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline was my favorite adult book. You can see my review here.
Here is the state of the TBR mountain:
- I added 57 books to the stack this month.
- I began the month with 1142 books marked TBR.
