It’s that time again! Another month gone (😭), which means another wrap-up and book haul. Work was super busy, so I didn’t read as much as last month but I did read a decent amount–more than my usual 5-7.
Hello, friends! Another month has come to an end. We’re in the last stretch of 2019. The days aren’t sweltering hot anymore, I’ve already burned a pumpkin-scented candle and had my first taste of the seasonal drinks at Starbucks. I’m dreaming about autumn as I type this… *sigh*
Like last month, August was another good reading month for me. The fact that I’m not reviewing in-depth every single book I read has helped a lot. I did have a lot of ARCs and eARCS for August, so I definitely reviewed those individually (which I will link below).
Hello, friends! I am sort of back from my hiatus but not really… 😛 I’ll slowly ease my way back into it, that’s for sure.
Anyway, remember when I said I wouldn’t buy a lot of books in July? Well… That completely didn’t happen at all. Oops! Little did I know about the sales and the coupons and how I can’t resist any of that. 😂
It’s that time already, and look at me, I’m not posting this weeks late… Hahahaha.
Let’s dive right in!
February has come and gone and I really can’t believe it. January seemed to last forever, but February sure did pass on by quickly! But despite the shorter month, my wrap-up and book haul are both equally exciting. 🙂
Look at me doing wrap-up and book haul posts two months in a row! 😱 I’m trying to be better, really I am, lol!
January was my birthday month (I turned 30! 😱), and while I thought I would go wild during the month I was surprisingly tame. Most of the books I received were gifts, from giveaways, or publishers (okay, 1 book was from a publisher 🙊). As for the wrap-up… Again fairly tame. I finished Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey last month, and while I still have Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee to play, I’m taking a break which means I have more free time to read (now whether I actually hunker down to read is the better question… 🤔).
Enough of my babble!
Well… My December book haul grew quicker than I thought it could… Without me even realizing it! Typical! With my own birthday to celebrate this month, I think I may go a little wild with books. I always view my birthday month as an entire “treat yo self” thing, which makes things… worse? Better? lol Not quite sure yet!
I can’t believe August is already here! I feel like I say that every time a new month begins, but it’s true! It just seems we’re on the downward slope of 2018 (which is also a crazy thought)!
I was on summer break for the month of July, and finished the month with a impressive end count, if I do say so myself. I actually posted a lot of the July as well, which is also great because who knows where it’ll go from here!
I think I’m s l o w l y making my way back into blogging, but just–erm, S L O W L Y as I said before. Since I’m on summer break, I’ve already got a few blog posts in mind, along with a schedule as well, so we’ll see how this month goes. 🙂
But that also means I have time to post a wrap-up and book haul for June! I can’t remember if I posted one for May but… It’s too late for that now, lol.
Another month in 2018 gone already! I can’t believe it! I’ve just got two more months of work until I’m on summer break, too. (Yes, I’m already counting down the days, so sue me. 😛 )
But that’s not what we’re here to talk about, is it?! I knew April would be fairly “good” in terms of book buying, especially with the North Texas Teen Book Festival just a couple of weeks ago. I won’t be quite as generous this month (my wallet will thank me), but there are two signings I plan to go during this month, and I’ve already pre-ordered two books for that event so…yeah. 🙂
