Since he was young, he learned that he had the uncanny ability to heal himself almost immediately after suffering minor injuries.

Enter Jillian Sykes, the immortal, beautiful Lycanthrope that has been looking for the soul of her long lost lover, Lucius Wolf, who after many years of being reborn simply vanished into the tides of time. When Jill first sees Damien, she knows immediately that he is the one she had been looking for. She begins pursuing him, hoping that he would remember her as he did with each time his soul was reborn into a new body. The problem is, he has no idea who she is! When an old enemy begins re-igniting the flames of a centuries old war, Damien must come to grips with a cruel fact that he is not human while nurturing feelings for a woman he’d long tried to deny.

August Wrap Up

Once again, I’ve fallen behind with the schedule which I really want to keep track of! I feel as though I need to wait for a year to go by until I’m in a routined situation! Plus, my keyboard on my laptop is not working so I need to get that up and running because I prefer to right my blog posts on my laptop rather than my phone.

Without further ado, I shall move onto the topic of this blog post which is my book wrap up of August. I read five books in the month of August which I was seemingly impressed with myself for especially as the previous couple of months beforehand I averaged around two books per month.

The five books I managed to read were called:

  • The Forgotten One by Debbra Lynn, I gave this book five out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if you’d like to read my book review, click here
  • A Fool’s Circle by Suzanne Seddon, I gave this book four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if you’d like to read my book review, click here
  • Season of Retribution by Shanna Nichols, I gave this book four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if you’d like to read my book review, click here
  • The Colour of the Sun by David Almond, I gave this book four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if you’d like to read my book review, click here
  • Maroonhair: A Cyber-City Story by Sebastian Winter, I gave this book two out of five stars ⭐️⭐️ if you’d like to read my book review, click here

I started a book called Lucid World by Denise Lammi at the end of August and am still currently reading it at the moment, so I can feel that September isn’t going to be a great reading month but I’m going to try and read as much as I can throughout the rest of the month.

I hope you all had a good August and are having an even better September!

How many books did you read in the month of August? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy reading,
