August was full of great reads!

August was insane! We traveled to Rio to watch my brother compete in the Olympics, we came home and bought a house. Now we’re in the process of boxing up our house in Denver and getting ready for the big move to Nevada. I really thought I would have read more this past month, but I can see why I didn’t… I did manage to read 3 books and 2 comics. What I did read was fantastic! I highly recommend them all and here you’ll get a glimpse into each read, but for full reviews you can click below! This past weekend we boxed up my entire office and it makes me sad to see the empty bookshelf, but I did pull a few out. Stay tuned for my September TBR!

Book Haul: August 2016

A book haul FULL of amazing reads just begging to be read!

Some of you may know, my husband and I are making a big life change… we’re boxing up our home in Denver and heading to Reno to be closer to our families. So over the past week I’ve had the task of boxing up some things. The first to go were my books. My husband brought a box up into my office and said hey start packing. I was like yeah okay it should be easy right well it set off an anxiety attack… I couldn’t stand the thought of an empty bookshelf for the month. Turns out though, the TBR stack sitting on the floor… it fills up my almost empty shelf ha! And I thought I’d only need a few boxes. I’m already at two and I have a good feeling I’m going to need a LOT more!

Anyways, over the month of August I’ve been able to add more great reads to the TBR shelf! I’m so excited for these reads. Have you read any of them?

Book Review: It End With Us by Colleen Hoover

“It stops here. With me and you. It ends with us.”

Powerful Read | 5/5 stars | Buy your copy of It Ends With Us

Overview: Lily had a troubling childhood. Years later she finds herself in Boston following her dreams of opening her own business. On a quite rooftop she meets a guy named Ryle. There’s an instant connection. Lily knows that she could be swept up in a romance with this man, but can’t help to think back on her first true love, Atlas. When he reappears it threatens everything that Lily and Ryle have built.

What I loved: Major plot twists, incredible characters, all the feels and emotions, and a powerful story line.

What I didn’t: A few moments where it felt too predictable.

If you liked Confess, The Lovely Bones, If I Stay, or The Fault in our Stars: Pick this up ASAP!

TBR: August 2016

The books I hope to read in August! What’s on your list?

Some of you may know by now, but I’m at the Rio Olympics! A few days ago we began our journey from Colorado to Florida and stayed the night. I didn’t get much reading done on that flight because it was an extremely early flight and I pretty much slept the entire way, but I wanted to read so badly haha I finally got some reading done while we were waiting to meet up with my parents in the airport and OH MY GOD! It Ends With Us is incredible so far.

Now that we’re in Rio we’ve been busy busy! The first day here we hit the ground running with getting to the hotel, team meetings, and getting settled into our hotel. Then yesterday was the first day of competition so still haven’t gotten to read much but today’s a chill day! I’ve packed along more books to read on the long 9 hour flight as well as for the two weeks we’ll be in Rio. It’s so crazy to think about and I sure hope I didn’t pack them for nothing haha I’ve filmed a TBR if you’d like to see which other books I’ve packed and then be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for Rio vlogs! I’ll be doing my best to get some footage up there for you… Anyways, these are the books I plan to read during the month of August. Let me know if we have one in common!

Hope you all have a lovely two weeks! So excited to cheer on Team USA!!
