August 2021 Reading Wrap Up

Hello Gemmies! I've been asked by a few followers to start doing a wrap up of all of my reads for the month. I'm a little late we go! August was a really great reading month for me. I had three specific goals.

1. Branch out and read more manga

2. Read more books by Indie authors

3. Read complete series

I think I did pretty well sticking to my goals. And I found that setting reading goals ahead of time helped me to stay focused. I also discovered that I absolutely LOVE manga! If you can think of a trope, there is a manga for it. If you aren't reading any manga yet, I highly recommend you branch out and add some to your to be read lists. I'll split my reads up by Books and Manga.

Here are some basic stats for my reading month. I'm not going to get super complicated here, but it is nice to take a look back and see what I was able to accomplish in 31 days! My biggest surprise of the month has to be the Sweat and Soap manga series. I seriously fell in love with these characters and slice of life story!


Manga: 32

Books: 12


Standard (paperback)

Audio Book




Advanced Reader Copy


So that's my reading wrap up for the month of August 2021. I really enjoyed just about every single one of these titles. The only ones I was not entirely in love with were Even Tree Nymphs Get The Blues by Molly Harper, and the Call of The Night Manga by Kotoyama. And even those were enjoyable, just not ones that I think I'd re-read anytime soon.
