Welcome to my August Wrap Up. I had a great reading month, finishing 10 books (3 books off my TBR). I also received 3 ARC's this month as well as many books for my birthday, and I continued my new goal of reading 1 Shakespeare play, as well as The Voyage Of The Beagle by Charles Darwin.

I have reviews up or coming up for these books so as usual this is just going to be a brief run down on each book I read.

Without further ado, let's get into my August Wrap Up..

The Quest Diaries Of Max Crack by Jules Faber: This book was awesome. The story was great, the characters were cool and the layout and illustrations were fantastic. I can only image how much young readers are going to enjoy this book, and given how much I loved it, i'm guessing it will be a lot.

Dopeworld by Niko Vorobyov: I really enjoyed this book. It was fascinating to see the role drugs have played in societies around the world and how governments and populations have reacted to drug use. This book is a must read for everyone.

Nobody's Victim by Carrie Goldberg: This book was amazing. It was hooked from the first page and I couldn't put it down. I feel empowered after reading this book. I honestly believe everyone should have to read this book. I genuinely don't have enough words to describe how great this book is. An absolute must read.

The World's Worst Teachers by David Walliams: I loved this book. I am a hug fan of David Walliams books, so I was very excited to get my hands of this book. I started and finished this book with a smile on my face and I had some genuine laugh out loud moments. A must have for all young readers and their families.

Matters Of The Heart by Fiona Palmer: I adored this book. I am a huge fan of Fiona Palmer and this book was right up my alley. I loved the story, the setting, the writing and the characters. I honestly don't have a bad word to say about this book. I will be re reading it many times in the future.

Storm Boy by Colin Thiele: I adore this book. I haven't read this book since primary school, but it has always had a place in my heart. Reading it again as an adult was a completely different yet still magical experience. I will be reading this book again many times in the future.

Tashi by Anna and Barbara Fienberg: This book was magical. With two brilliant stories and amazing illustrations by Kim Gamble, it is easy to see why this book is a favourite with young readers and their families. Such a beautiful little book.

The Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris: This book was great.The story was fun, The characters were amazing, and best of all it had secret codes to decipher. This is the perfect book for middle grade readers. I am so glad that this is just the first book in a series. I am so excited to start on book 2.

The Magic Misftis 2: The Second Story by Neil Patrick Harris: I really enjoyed this book. I was so excited to read it after finishing the first book, and thankfully it didn't disappoint. I am really loving this series and I cant wait to get my hands on book 3.

Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid: I really enjoyed this book. The concept was amazing, and the story was really interesting. I loved seeing the way in which different people remember the same events. I found myself completely engrossed in the story, so it was a fairly quick read. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone.

Shakespeare: I read 1 Shakespeare play in August. I read the following Shakespeare Play This Month:
