Wrap Up: August/Trope-ical Readathon

Hey everyone!

Today, I will be sharing my August/Trope-ical Readathon Wrap Up with you all!

In August, I managed to read 5 books, and start a 6th.

You can find the list of book I was hoping to read here! It was a very ambitious list, and I’m not even slightly surprised that I didn’t get through them all, but I am happy with the amount I did manage to read.


Books Read:

1 – Lies Like Wildfire by Jennifer Lynn Alvarez

I read Lies Like Wildfire for the @The_WriteReads blog tour, and it was also my chosen book for the (post) apocalyptic/fire on the cover prompt for the Trope-ical Readathon. This is one of my favourite YA Thrillers that I’ve ever read. You can read my review HERE!

2 – Invite Me In by Emma Curtis

PURCHASE HERE (affiliate links): Amazon UKWaterstonesBook Depository

Invite Me In was my chosen book for the historical figure/published in 2021 prompt for the readathon. I did enjoy this book, but I did feel that there was something missing. Review to come.

3 – Next of Kin by Kia Abdullah

Next of Kin was my pick for the mixed media/audiobook or ebook prompt for the readathon. I had been looking forward to this book for so long, and it lived up to all of my expectations! Read my full review HERE!

4 – Changeling by Matt Wesolowski

PURCHASE HERE (affiliate links): Amazon UKWaterstonesBook Depository

I read Changeling as a continuation of our Six Stories group read for our series book club, and it was also my pick for the a buddy/group read prompt for the Readathon. This series is absolutely brilliant, and this is probably my favourite book from the series so far. Review to come.

5 – Backstories by Simon Van Der Velde

PURCHASE HERE (affiliate link): Amazon UK

Backstories was my pick for the read In 24 hours prompt for the Readathon. I had been intended to read this for a while, after receiving a free copy from the author, in exchange for an honest review, but it was just so perfect for this prompt, so I saved it for the readathon. This is such a fun and interesting little read! Review to come.
