August is a weird month, isn't it? I felt like it was crawling by at first, then it suddenly flew past and now it's almost September! Where did the time go? No seriously, where did it go? On the bright side, I had a great reading month! I stuck to my book buying ban and only bought one book this month (we're not including pre-orders because those are the rules).
July was a crazy month for me. Not only was I incredibly busy with starting a new job, coming back from holiday, going on holiday again, and then going to YALC, but I also acquired and read so many books! I’m not going to break these down like I usually do becuase this post will be impossibly long if I do, so feel free to chat with me in the comments!
June is a wrap! I can't believe June is already over -- where has the time gone? Fortunately, July is here and that means YALC is around the corner! How is my YALC TBR going? It's best to just not ask.
I say it every month, but at this point I don't even care -- how is it already June? Where did the last month go? I feel like I'm missing a week or two of May because this is ridiculous. May was a great month for reading -- which may account for the time slip -- and I managed to read 16 books this month! What? To be fair, half of those were graphic novels and the other half were novels, but whatever. It all counts, right?
I feel like I say this every month, but I cannot believe how quickly time is passing! April has absolutely flown by and spring is well underway. April has been an amazing month for me: I went to the Harry Potter studio for the first time, chaired my first book event, hosted my first readathon, and I read some fanastic books. I feel like the start of the year was a bit slow to start in my little corner of the internet, but I'm really getting back on my feet in terms of writing reviews, posting videos, and taking photos.
So March was an unexpectedly great month for reading. I've been feeling like I've not been reading enough lately, but that's clearly not true. Why? I read 12 books in March. 12 books! To be fair, they were a combination of full-length novels, shorter books, and graphic novels (which I absolutely power through). Regardless, I'm so pleased with my progress! This is going to be a long post, so I'm not really going to go into detail here. I'll have reviews for each book I read soon!
My monthly TBR was mostly set by Scottish Fiance, but the whole TBR was thrown out of whack for a number of reasons (the main one being that we accidentally left the backpack containing all my books on the train home from Edinburgh and it had to be rescued by my mum the next day), so I didn't end up reading the books I had initially planned to. Regardless, it was still a great months for reading!
