August Wrap-up

August Wrap-up

Monthly wrap-upI don’t know what’s up with August. It was an odd month, both fast and a slow. Reading-wise it felt slow but somehow I still read quite a lot. In every other aspect the month flew by. The first week of August I was in China for a week for business, which was an amazing experience (and also bookish). And with the new academic year starting – despite not being a student myself – I started making all kinds of plans. All exciting plans but I also get tired just thinking about them haha.

Read in August
I finished seven books this month and am reading The Bone Clocks by David Mithcell as well. And I wrote four reviews! Hah. I’ll probably also write reviews for Otherbound and The Paying Guests sometime soon.

  1. The Before Now and After Then by Peter Monn
  2. Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3) by Laini Taylor
  3. Weetzie Bat (Weetzie Bat, #1) by Francesca Lia Block
  4. Everything Changes by Samantha Hale
  5. Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis
  6. ふしぎな図書館 (The Strange Library) by Haruki Murakami
  7. The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters

Anyway, as for what I read… Lots of four star books! I really enjoyed Weetzie Bat, Otherbound and The Strange Library in particular, and The Paying Guests (although I finished that last one just 10 minutes ago and I still have to digest it). But the highlight was definitely finishing the Daughter of Smoke & Bone series, it was so good!

Book haul
Once again a book haul of shame, so here is a link. I’m on a book buying ban starting in August, but some books from July came in and on top of that I’ve been very lucky lately and won five of these books *_* Anyway, I’m very excited about all of these books. Now if a day could just have a few extra hours in it I’d be very pleased. I don’t expect any books to arrive in September, which is just as well.

Plans for September
Near the end of the month I’ll be leaving to Canada for a three week holiday, yay (finally)! I’m quite excited and I expect to get plenty of reading done as well. Not bringing any physical books but my Kindle is coming 🙂
