August Wrap Up!


Hiya everyone!


I hope you're all doing well, I can't believe another month has gone by?! I really enjoyed August as I celebrated my birthday as well as my 1 year blogging anniversary! I've loved being part of this community so much and I can't wait to see what the future is going to bring 😍



If you've read any of these please let me know! 😍




I've been in such a slump this month it's ridiculous! 🙃 I managed to pick up a few books towards the end of the month luckily 😂


This may be the biggest haul I've had so far! And I didn't even buy any of them myself so does that mean I technically haven't broken my book buying ban? 🙈 I had my birthday this month and was so lucky to receive so many amazing books and the NetGalley Gods have been particularly kind to me lately 😂

I put up a few reviews this month including Rags of Time, Kissing Daisy Parker, If The Sun Never Sets, Raybearer and The Quickening!


I loved writing my review for Raybearer - it was one of my most anticipated reads and quickly became one of my favourites! ❤️


I've got some super exciting projects coming up in September that I am so excited to share! However, after taking some time to have a good think I have come to the decision that my review requests are still closed until further notice. I'm still working through a backlog and I don't think I could handle adding more stress to my plate at the moment. If this happens to change at some point in the future I will let you know!

That's about it from me this month, I hope you guys all had a great August and let me know what you have planned for September down in the comments or come find me on my Twitter and Instagram!
