Monthly Wrap-Up: August 2019

Hi, everyone! It’s time for another monthly wrap-up. I’ve been extremely happy with my reading since last July. Although I didn’t read as much in August, it was still pretty good if you compare the stat to the other previous months!

what i read

Sadly, no five-star read last month!

four-star (★★★★)

📑 100 Days of Sunlight by Abbie EmmonsReview • A re-read and definitely one of my favorite contemporary this year!
📑 Bumi Manusia by Pramoedya Ananta ToerReview • I’m so glad to finally pick this up and also watch the adaptation.
📑 Hurricane Season by Nicole MellebyReview • I certainly didn’t expect that I’d enjoy this one so much!

three-star (★★★)

📑 Heartstopper: Volume 1 by Alice Oseman • I definitely had a higher expectation for this, but it was just okay for me.
📑 Heartstopper: Volume 2 by Alice Oseman • I like that the story focused a bit more on Nick in this volume.
📑 She’s the Worst by Lauren Spieller • This was so freaking intense to read! I enjoyed the drama, though.

two-star (★★)

📑 Carnegie Hill by Jonathan VatnerReview • What I was hoping to be a story of candidness, life struggles, and inspiring resolution, turns out to be flat and easily forgotten.
📑 Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce ConnollyReview • Beautiful proses, unfortunately, I personally don’t think it’s suitable for this genre.
📑 Radio Dark by Shane HintonReview • It could be better with more action packs, tbh.

one-star (★)

📑 The Love Solution by Ashley CroftReview • I have too many complaints to be included in one sentence…




  1. I also read 10 books last month, which I was super happy with! I read volume 1 of Heartstopper, and I loved it a lot. It was simple, but I loved getting to know the characters, and some parts were just so wholesome, it was perfect ♥ I can definitely see why you rated it 3 stars however. I’m curious to read volume 2! I hope you have a lovely month of September Vinny!


    1. I’m glad to know that you enjoyed Heartstopper, Noémie! I didn’t particulary hate it, whatsoever, I guess I just had a high expecatation about it, especially since I’m a big fan of Radio Silence and I was having a great time with I Was Born for This.

      And YAY! Here’s to reading more awesome books in September! I’ve been eyeing a few titles and hoping they’d be a five-star read for me! Good luck with your reading this month, Noémie!


    1. Ahh, I wish it was, Hamad! But I’d respectfully disagree! I’m not a very fast reader, so 10 books are a huge number for me. But genre-wise, I completely understand why you’d say that! Haha!


    1. 18 books?! That’s HUGE, Erin! Congrats!

      Isn’t? I’m a big fan of Alice, but I’m disappointed when I discovered that it’s just an okay read for me. Hopefully, I have better luck with her next book!

      Have an awesome reading month too, Erin!


      1. Thank you! I love Alice too. I’ve fallen out of love with that series a little bit, which disappoints me 😊 Hopefully this month will be good for reading!


  2. Lovely post, Vinny! I’m so glad to see that you enjoyed the drama in She’s the Worst! I’ve been so excited to read that one soon! And I’m glad you had a great time reading 100 Days of Sunlight again! I still haven’t had a chance to pick it up yet! 🙈 Wishing you the best of Septembers, love! ❤


  3. awwh, im sorry to see that you didn’t have any 5 star reads this month but im so glad to see you read a lot of books and enjoyed most of them. ‘she’s the worst’ looks so dramatic, i want to readdd lol
    i hope youre having a great month 💖
