August 2019 To Be Read

Welcome my loves it's August 2019. And my July was a fantastic month of reading; not just in the number of books I read, but also in the quality of books I read. I had a lot of 4 and 5 stars reads and I'm hoping this month will also be the same.

For August besides my usual prompts, I'm going to be doing ARC August as well as Austen In August. Find our what I plan to read for those down below.

My goal this year is 150  books, if I break that down it comes out to 13 books per month, with 3 to 4  books a week. Totally doable in my books, so as the proverb says, you can eat an elephant one bite at a time, so here are my first few bites:

Read So Far This Year: 87
TBR Pile 150
TBR Balance: 63
Monthly Goal: 13
    I actually am doing VEDA (Vlog every day in August) this year and I made a TBR video as well, I'll link it here.
