August Reading Wrap-Up

Hope everyone had a lovely Labor Day weekend. Except I guess those that aren't in the US and aren't celebrating Labor Day, in which case hope you had a nice weekend? I know last time I talked about how summer was almost over but now summer is actually over and sadz. Except it's autumn which means PUMPKIN EVERYTHING and that really helps with the whole summer-is-over blues.

I had a pretty good reading month. I got some non-whiteys in there, I read a book that turned out to be one of my new favorites, and overall I got a decent amount of reading done. Good times. And now, stats!
