August 2018 books

This was a pretty good month for books! I didn’t love everything equally, but I did have a couple of really strong reads and that’s always nice. I’m hoping to finish up the Steerswoman series in September and keep reading the Astreiant books. Just as a reminder, I always post each book I finish on Instagram, so if you’d like to stay up to date on what I’m most currently reading, head over there.

  1. Whoa, you read A College of Magics too. I started it last month, but I keep interrupting it with other books. I’m just at the beginning, but it feels really sloggish somehow. I just feel like the protagonist is so bored being at school, so I end up feeling bored reading about her boredom. Anyway, glad to see you rated it quite high. Must mean the pace picks up eventually…
