  36. [31 Aug] August 2017 Wrap-Up and September 2017 Reading Plan

I had planned on cutting back on reading a little during the month of August because I was not sure how much time I was going to have on my hands. With that said, how much did I read in the month of August? Drumroll please……This month I have read 36 books! That is right, that is actually a decrease of 3 books! What did I do with all that spare time?? I read, ha ha ha, that is what I did. I have once again included a screenshot of the books I have read below.

August Book Haul

The Genre Minx Book Reviews August 2017 Book Haul

My August book haul includes a few books I am particularly excited about. One being the hardcover version of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. That is not just a hardcover version of that book but a first edition, first printing, signed version of that novel. Oh hells yeah! Bought that one while in Arizona from an indie bookshop, The Poisioned Pen. So excited to nestle that lovely into my book collection. The other book I am completely jazzed about is Vixen 03 by Clive Cussler. That novel is also a first edition, first printing, signed copy. That book is literally 1 year younger than I am, and now it is mine, alllllll miiiiinnnnneeeee! There is one ARC in the bunch and that is Girls made of Snow and Glass, that review is to come soon. The other books I am excited about because they add to my overall collection but there is nothing that will be going on my physical TBR shelf this month because I have already read these books.

September TBR Shelf

The Genre Minx TBR August 2017The state of my physical TBR shelf this month is quite the shocker. It has been forever since it held this few books. I have been at this shelf with extreme vengeance this month and it has paid off. It will not stay that way for long though. September promises to be a big month with lots of great books coming out like:

There are also some E-books coming out from Authors that I enjoy and they are:

What am I planning to read for the month of September?

Winter of the Gods by Jordanna Max Brodsky

I know it seems like I am keeping things light but I have a 28 ARC’s to read and review in the month of September and I am not one to miss deadlines. Yep, lots of reading to get accomplished in the next month.

Well that is it for my August wrap-up and September reading plan. Any books you are looking forward to reading?

Love Always,
