August Wrap Up

Over here at YA Bookmark we've been struggling with our reading for the better part of the year. Both of us have had to lower our Goodreads goal to help with the pressure, that said, August wasn't the worst reading month we've had and we're hoping September just gets better. Below are the books we managed to read in August.

What books did you get to in August?


  1. Ohh I really want to read Milk and Honey. I read a little bit of it when I was in the bookstore but omg I wanted to buy it so badly. it's a little expensive though for a small tiny book.

    1. I checked mine out from the library! It was fantastic though so I might have to pick up a copy for my bookshelves!

  2. PS I Like You, looks so cute!
    Enjoy all your books :)

  3. Yesss! In Jacquelyn's list, by far Girl Against the Universe is my favorite. I love Paula's writing, and I personally felt that GATU was her best work so far. it's such an important and deep novel wrapped up in fluff and cuteness. In Audris' list, I'm most looking forward to reading The Sun is Also a Star. I wasn't such a huge fan of Nicola Yoon's previous title, but the hype for The Sun is Also a Star is strong, so we'll see. Hope you loved them both!

    And by the way, I love your graphics :D

  4. I've heard great things about Milk and Honey. I'm going to have to pick that up!

  5. I have been looking forward to read Milk and Honey!
