August ’19 Wrap-up and Book Haul (+ an Unhaul)

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).

Top 10 Tuesday: Books That Need a Sequel

TTT-Big2
A weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Technically, the topic is standalone books that need a sequel, but gosh, there are finales of series that I think also need another book because I just want more, and sometimes an author leaves things pretty open-ended. I know most of crave for standalone books, but sometimes those books need answers! But also, this is mostly me, my wishful thinking, and just how fun it would be to have another story with these characters!

I also did a twist on the topic all the way at the bottom, so check that out too! 🙂

Meeting the Author: Laini Taylor || MUSE OF NIGHTMARES Tour!

Going to see Laini Taylor was a bit of a whim. I’m currently transitioning jobs (my last day is today!), and I said I wouldn’t go unless I got this new job. Laini was in the Dallas area, which is a 3.5 hour drive as well.

Needless to say, I did get the job, and I did go see Laini Taylor as part of her Muse of Nightmares book tour. 🙂 It was a lot of fun, and I met a few people there as well, which really made it well worth it.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Books on My Fall TBR

If you know me at all, you know I’m horrible at TBRs. Mainly because I’m like, “Oh my god, look at all the fall releases. Must read them now!” and then proceed to request them all from my local library. 🤣  But the thing is, I have so many unread books on my shelves (but then again, what bookworm doesn’t?), and so a while back I made a TBR Jar, which is nothing more than a mason jar I filled with rolled slips of paper of all the unread books on my own shelves. Well, that’s been going semi-well.

Since I started it, I’ve actually managed to read books and get rid of the ones I don’t like (either by selling them or giving them away via my Twitter). That’s a miracle and of itself, I tell you, lol. 😛 So the books mentioned here aren’t necessarily ~fall~ themed but rather, just books I’m really need to read. Screw the TBR Jar, I suppose?!
