August 2015 Reads

1:00 pm


It's been quite the reading month, this August, with two read-a-thons and whole lot of procrastination as it came closer to the end of my dissertation. For a round-up of what I've read this year so far, including a more detailed look at August, you can look at my reading challenge over on Goodreads.

I read a handful of books this month that aren't pictured above, either because they're ebooks or borrowed from somebody else, but those were the following: Brian K. Vaughn's Saga Volume One; Judy Blume's Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret; Junji Ito's The Enigma of Amigara Fault; Emily Carroll's Through the Woods; Ali Smith's Girl Meets Boy; Kathleen Founds's When Mystical Creatures Attack; and 17 Lists That Will Change Your Life.

For me, the standout books of the month were Roxane Gay's Bad Feminist (which I reviewed here), Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, Philip Matyszak's The Greek and Roman Myths (review coming soon), Melinda Salisbury's The Sin Eater's Daughter (review coming soon), Andrew Kaufman's All My Friends Are Superheroes (which I reviewed here), Joe Meno's The Boy Detective Fails (which I reviewed here), Brian K. Vaughn's Saga Volume One, and Emily Carroll's Through the Woods

I'll be un-hauling Scroobius Pip's Poetry in (E)Motion (I love you Pip, but this just wasn't interesting for me), Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five (see my Booktube-A-Thon post for more details), and Dads are the Original Hipsters (a Tumblr should not be a book).

You can find wrap ups for Booktube-A-Thon here and Bout of Books 14 here

Let me know what you read over the course of August and what you thought!
