August Reading Report

August (and summer vacation) are over. It is time to get back in the habit of getting up at 6 AM and going off to school. I am excited to see my students and share all the great books that I read this summer with them.

I added 11 new YA books to my LibraryThing account. Some of the titles added include Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, Halo by Alexandra Adornetto, and Nevermore by Kelly Creagh.

I read these YA books in August:

Halo by Alexandra Adornetto - I think that students who liked Twilight will like this one too. But we have angels instead of vampires.
Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel - This one is a nice twist. A vampire becomes a human girl. It also has a nice romance.
Almost to Die For by Tate Hallaway -- This one has witches and vampires and takes place in Minnesota. I really liked it.
Kiss Me Deadly by Trisha Telep - This one has a bunch of stories including stories by Maggie Stiefvater, Rachel Vincent and Becca Fitzpatrick.
Jealousy by Lili St. Crow - This is the third in the Strange Angels series and is just as exciting as the first two books. Dru should be safe but doesn't know who she can trust.
Manifest by Artist Arthur - This is a contemporary story with ghosts and teens with interesting powers that I read from NetGalley.

I didn't read any middle grade books this month.

For the year I have read 75 YA books and 23 Middle Grade books.


  1. While I get a lot of requests for paranormal romance-type books, what I really need are action/adventure books or sports books for the boys. Have you seen anything new lately? I read tons of lists and reviews yesterday and just can't find anything.

  2. Great books on this list. I've had the opportunity to read Manifest (didn't love it though) and Infinite Days (which I adored). I'm looking forward to Kiss Me Deadly and Halo both of which are on my TBR pile.
