August 2018 Wrap-Up

I’ve decided to keep this short! All bookish, all fun. Bye summer!!!

What’s New?

I am on VACATION! Exactly one year has passed and I deserve it! September will be all about self-care, rest, and fun!

August was mostly about work, I truly enjoyed being a full-time Orenda fairy, and I’d like to thank you all for the support and for playing along with me 🙂

Books I read this month

I’m quite sad to see I’ve neglected my reading spreadsheet, which means I don’t have the exact dates of reading and all the info I used to fill the pages with, but hey, when you’re busy, you can’t be everywhere!

10 books, not bad all things considered! I have found brilliant reads, came across a couple of DNF, and discovered new favorites!

Books I reviewed

Can’t Take My Eyes Off You: Now You See Her by Heidi Perks @HeidiPerksBooks @arrowpublishing @PenguinUKBooks @PenguinRHUK

Liar, Liar, Life on Fire: The Affair by Sheryl Browne @SherylBrowne @bookouture

Puzzles: Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter @SlaughterKarin @HarperCollins #BlogTour @fictionpubteam

Bleach is the New Normal: Good Samaritans by Will Carver @will_carver @OrendaBooks @west_camel

Doppelwhat? Bellevue Square by Michael Redhill @stet_that @noexitpress #IsThatYou

Let The Sound of the Waves Lull You: How To Be Brave by Louise Beech @LouiseWriter @OrendaBooks

I am pleased with those reviews, which were written without pressure and with lots of fun! I have loved all of these stories!

New Books (won, purchased, for review, whatever)

NetGalley, I need to forget your password. Really. Amazon, too.

Quite a difficult choice as I found very different but equally strong reads this month! But one particularly stands out…
