This is a list of the books that I read in August, broken up into Middle Grade Books, Young Adult Books, and Adult Fiction. I have reviews scheduled in the next few weeks for most of the completed middle grade and young adult titles. It was a bit of a light reading month for me, but I'm hoping to get in more reading time in September. I did read some excellent books, so that balances things out.
