August Wrap Up
I, for some reason, have been thinking that September is coming to an end and not August. I have zero idea of why this is, but I have to keep reminding myself that I have not lost a month. I am very glad that it is August ending and not September, because that makes me feel less rushed.
August was a good month. I ended summer on some very high notes and found time to do a lot of writing. I also went to a writing conference in my city and that was invigorating. I am so excited for the rest of the year. Things are in a good place and even better there are some fantastic books coming out soon that I am super pumped for!
Books I read:
I am only 3 books away from finishing my Goodreads challenge. Pending any reading disasters I will have that done by the end of next month!
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince- J.K. Rowling – I love rereading this series. This is so interesting to see where Voldemort came from and get a better understanding of him for the rest of the series.
Search for Senna (Everworld #1) – K.A. Applegate – Loving my reread of this series.
Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1) – Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – The format of this story makes it one of the most interesting things I have read this year.
Land of Loss (Everworld #2) – K.A. Applegate- Series is still holding as fun and fascinating.
Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) – Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff- The end of this book made it one of my favorites of the year.
Obsidio (The Illuminae Files #3) – Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – This was an exciting end to the series. I think the second one outshined this one but it did provide a satisfactory conclusion.

Movies I watched:
To All the Boys I loved Before – I saw so many social media posts about this movie. Some of my favorite authors were singing its praises so I had to watch it. I thought it was quite cute. I don’t know if I was as enthralled as others were but I did think it was a really sweet movie.
Musical I saw:
Hamilton – I have been waiting all summer to see this. Getting tickets was quite stressful but I managed it. It was well worth the work to get the tickets. It was beyond awesome. It was very different from any other musical I have seen (which is quite a few). It deserves all the praise it gets.
