Another month come and gone! It's nearly September, school is back in session, and hopefully it won't be long until we get some cool weather! I don't know about the rest of you all over the world, but I'm really ready for something cooler than 103 degrees.
August wasn't as ravenous a reading month as June or July, but I still did okay.
So here are some STATS for August!
Number of Books: 4
Favorite Read: Hands down, Paranormalcy by Kiersten White. And whadaya know! Paranormalcy hits shelves TUESDAY!
Least Favorite Read: This is a toughie... in terms of enjoyability alone, I'd have to say Mockingjay. I'll go into detail when I post my review, but it did not live up to the sensationalized hype, and that was a major letdown.
Most Original Idea or Story World: Brenna Yovanoff's The Replacement was MADE for this category. So much originality, rich details, strong writing... very, very cool!
Best Narrator/MC: Evie, Paranormalcy. She's definitely a contender for Best Narrator of the Year! Too bad she's not real - I would love to apply to be her sidekick :)
Best Love Interest: Winning the title 2 months in a row...it's PEETA MELLARK!
Best/Most Interesting Supporting Character: The Morrigan, The Replacement. She is just so deliciously creepy, so hideously beautiful... I twisted around this category just for her.
Best Book Cast (overall characters): the cast of Gone. Michael Grant handles such a large character ensemble so fabulously.
Book You Really REALLY Don't Want to Miss: Just for closure's sake, I'd say Mockingjay. But in case you haven't read Gone yet...get thee to a library or bookstore!
Author I'd Love to Hang Out With: I butt into her conversations enough on twitter, but Kiersten White seems like one awesome gal who would be an excellent shopping pal.
Book That Had the Greatest Impact on Me: Mockingjay. I'm still thinking about it - about how it ended, about the final leg in the Hunger Games journey, and for a book to have this much power...is awesome and unnerving at the same time.
Total # of pages read: 1,634
