August is kind of a catch up reading month for me, because I brought home a whole bunch of books from my classroom and school library and only dipped into a couple during July. It meant that I have a whole bunch still left to read for August, so I never made a TBR post at the start of the month. However, I’ve since decided to participate in the ScallywagAThon, which is hosted by HardbackHoarder, Paper Faerie, and Read All the Books.

Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron is a young adult fantasy novel that takes place in the same world as Cinderella, but 200 years after Cinderella died. It’s feminist and queer, and plays with that familiar story we all know. The book published on July 7th, 2020. I rated it three stars.
There are a lot of good sounding books coming out in August. I can’t wait to check out all the books coming out, but I narrowed it down to four that I am most intrigued by. You’ll find them below the cut.
I have been loving my summer vacation. It’s really not the ideal kind of summer vacation obviously, but after this school year I really needed it. I have been thriving while hanging out at home and reading. I also adopted some cats. It’s been a really, really interesting month. Anyways, let’s just jump into my wrap up!
**Disclaimer: I received a free copy of The Sword and the Dagger by Robert Cochran from his publishers in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to them for this opportunity.
The Sword and the Dagger by Robert Cochran is a young adult historical fiction novel. It is a multi point of view novel set during the reign of Genghis Khan. Three very different characters are forced to come together on an unlikely mission. I rated it four stars on Goodreads.
