August 2018 Monthly Wrap-up

Welcome to my August 2018 Wrap-up! A Monthly Wrap-up is exactly what it sounds like, a summary of the month. I’ll be recapping books I read, purchased/borrowed, posts of the month, a little bit of what’s going on outside the blog. I’m linking this post to the Monthly Wrap-up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

I can’t believe that August has ended and September is here. My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary this month and I’m looking forward too many more years together.

This month I was able to complete two book series, yay me. I’m horrible when it comes to reading an entire series, I usually have the last two or last book to read. This month I finished Grant County Series and Will Trent Series, both by Karin Slaughter. Will Trent was my favorite series, and hopefully the series isn’t complete, and more books will be released. I may have possibly developed a book crush on Will Trent.
