August wrap-up

August wrap-upWow, August has come and gone. Sometimes it felt like it went by too-fast, especially with everything I had to turn in to finish my Master’s; it felt like I didn’t have enough time.

Because of that (and because I’m binge watching Star Trek: Voyager), I’ve not read too much this month. Still, I’ve managed to finished my set minimum amount of books: two per week. That means this month, I finished reading eight books. Most of these books I absolutely LOVED. Though some were a little less interesting. Here’s the breakdown.


Books

  1. Confessions of a Queen B* by Christa McHugh | 4 stars
  2. The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan | 4 stars
  3. De Verloren Schat by Thea Beckman | 3 stars
  4. Kinderen van Moeder Aarde by Thea Beckman | 5 stars
  5. The Martian by Andy Wear | 5 stars
  6. In Wahrheit wird viel mehr gelogen by Kerstin Gier | 4 stars
  7. The Legacy Human by Susan Kaye Quinn | 5 stars
  8. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett | 2 stars
  9. The Duality Bridge by Susan Kaye Quinn | 4 stars
