August 2019 Wrap Up // ARCs, new favourites, and trades

August was a bit of a YALC-comedown month. I was definitely feeling the post-convention lull, but I decided to take part in ARC August to get through some of the books I picked up. And I mostly succeeded. I read four ARCs/advance copies and three previously-published books, making my total number of books for the… Continue reading August 2019 Wrap Up // ARCs, new favourites, and trades

August 2019 TBR // ARC August

Although I’m sad that July is over, I’m excited to be taking part in ARC August this year.Β ARC August is an annual reading challenge hosted by Octavia and Shelly @ReadSleepRepeat. The aim is to read as many ARCs as you can during August and take part in challenges (if you want to). I’m aiming to… Continue reading August 2019 TBR // ARC August

Book Hauls

August + September 2018 book haul // Book buying bans and V. E. Schwab

(Disclaimer: this post contains spoilers for the Illumicrate Magic+Mayhem box.) I picked up a lot of books at YALC in the last weekend of July, so I was on something of a book buying ban in August. I still ended up with two new books in August, but I was sent them, rather than buying… Continue reading August + September 2018 book haul // Book buying bans and V. E. Schwab

August 2018 Wrap Up // ARCs, articles, and travel

August was basically a come-down month from YALC, but I also went away on a mini-break and read a lot (?!) of books, so it wasn’t all bad. I managed to read six books this month and one of them was an entire web comic series. I actually changed the books I was going to… Continue reading August 2018 Wrap Up // ARCs, articles, and travel

August 2018 TBR // Mini-breaks and ARCs

I’m setting myself a pretty ambitious TBR for August, as I’m going away on a mini-break for a few days with my boyfriend and his family. We have a 4-5 hour drive to our destination so I’m hoping to be a human audiobook during the trip. These are the books I want to read: This… Continue reading August 2018 TBR // Mini-breaks and ARCs

August Wrap Up 2017 (Aka the month I *almost* read all the books I’d planned to)

  Although August was a washout in terms of weather, I had a good reading month and went on a few fun trips. I managed to read 6 books this month, which I’m pleased with considering I had a few weekends away visiting friends. These were the books I planned to read: Aaaaand these were… Continue reading August Wrap Up 2017 (Aka the month I *almost* read all the books I’d planned to)

August TBR (Aka attempting to read the unwieldy pile of books I brought back from YALC)

My feelings about August are usually something like ‘Yay it’s the height of summer, but wait no why is it raining all the time please stop?!’. Basically. But this year, my feelings are less weather related, and more YALC related. After having a wonderful weekend at the convention, I now have an almost unwieldy amount… Continue reading August TBR (Aka attempting to read the unwieldy pile of books I brought back from YALC)
