Hello there lovely reader! In today’s blog post I will be talking about all the books I read in August, what rating I gave them and soms statistics regarding my reading during the month of August.
Let’s start off with the statistics. August was both quantity and quality wise not a super good reading month. I managed to read eight books in August, which is still a lot, but previous years I always read over 10 books in August. The quality of the books I read was also not amazing. The average rating of a book read in August was 7.3 out of 10. Other months I easily get to an average rating of over 7.5 or 8 out of 10.
I also didn’t really read a lot of long books in August. Over those eight books I read a total amount of 2641 pages. Which corresponds to an averge page count of 330 pages per book. Or an average page count of 85 pages read per day.
For the format of the eight books I read, six were physical books, one was an ebook and one was an audiobook. From those eight books I read, two were bought by myself, five were gifted to me either for my birthday or by the author and I listened to the audiobook via Storytel.
For the genres of those eight books, I read one non fiction book, three graphic novels and four fantasies. Age range wise I read one middle grade, three YA novels and four adult books.
And that was everything for the statistics. Now let’s get into the eight books I read in August, which rating (out of five) I gave them and where you can find my review, if I made one.
- The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden – 4
- Paper Girls Volume 1 by Brian Vaughan – 3.5 – review to come 09-09
- The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin – 4.5
- Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me by Mariko Tamaki – 4 – review to come 04-09

- Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay – 3.5

- Helende Bladeren by Claudia Boon – 3 – review to come 09-09
My favourite physical read (also counting ebooks) of August was The Fifth Season without a doubt. I can definitely see that one ending up on my favourites of 2020 list. I only listened to one audiobook this month and that one didn’t really stand out to me, so it won’t end up on my favourites list, just like the rest of the books I read in August.
And that’s it for yet another month’s wrap up. There are only four months left in 2020, that’s just crazy! I hope to see you again for my next post!
