August 2014 Wrap-Up: Books and Reviews

September 1, 2014

Ye Grande Olde TBR(e) Challenge Update

I started August with 240 unread books sitting around my house. And I ended with … *drumroll* …240! This month feels like it kicked my butt, y’all, especially in terms of the numbers of actual, physical, non-graphical books that I read. No matter how prepared for the start of the school year I think I am, it’s always a rush of preparation right before (two weeks before, this year), and the start of the semester just always kicks my butt. I have managed to tear through a bunch of audiobooks, but I just haven’t had the time or the mental energy to settle down and actually read non-textbook books all that much. Here’s hoping September calms down at least a little and I can get some real reading done!

…anyways, let’s take a look at the breakdown:

Neutral books – Read, but don’t affect the TBR pile

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
Fuzzy Nation by John Scalzi

Read But Not Owned (Books)
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Read But Not Owned (Graphic Novels)
Rust, Vol. 3: Death of the Rocket Boy by Royden Lepp
Ex Machina, Vol. 2: Tag by Brian K. Vaughan
Fairest, Vol. 3: Return of the Maharaja by Sean E. Williams
