Read 100 books: 152/100

Finish 5 series in progress: 2/5 – Red Queen

Read 12 graphic novels: 8/12 – Smile

Read 12 books of poetry/verse: 8/12 -Long Way Down

Read 6 nonfiction books: 2/6 – none this month

Read 3 classics: 3/3 – Even though I read 3 classics this year, I still need to read one that’s pre-20th century

Reread 10 books/series: 9/10 – The Last Magician

Host monthly backlist buddy reads: 8/12 – Dread Nation

How did your month go? What was the best book you read in August?
