Month in Review: August
Summer is officially over and I feel like crawling into a hole and dying because I'm entering grade 12 :( That being said, August was an amazing month and I'm so thankful for having an amazing summer.
What I Read:
A Court of Mist and Fury by: Sarah J. Maas: 2/5 stars
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by: J.K. Rowling and Jack Thorne: 4/5 stars
Me Before You by: Jojo Moyes: 4/5 stars
Finding Audrey by: Sophie Kinsella: 5/5 stars
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by: Ransom Riggs: 4/5 stars
Salt to the Sea by: Ruta Sepetys: 5/5 stars
Favourite book: Definitely Salt to the Sea! It's been a while since I've read historical fiction but I think it's the most amazing genre. This book was heartbreaking, but also called attention to some harrowing moments in history that not many people know about.
What I Blogged:
I feel like this was the month of tags, tags and more tags! I was pretty busy to write posts so tags seemed like the easiest thing to do to be honest. I really liked the Book Sacrifice Tag, it was really fun to do and allowed me to get out some of my *harsh* opinions on books.
Favourite Blog Posts of the Month:
Ruzaika does the 100 Questions Tag!
Thomas explains the 9 Reasons why Social Media is Important for a Blogger.
Denise goes on a Feminist Rant
Temecka has Five Reasons why You should Read Marley and Me
Blogger of the Month:
This month's featured blogger goes out to a blogger who I have known for a while, and I really want to show some appreciation for! It's Sierra @ The Nerdgirl Review!
Sierra just celebrated her two year blogiversary, and throughout those two years I have seen her bring out the most honest and genuine posts. She speaks her mind and has a great blogging voice. This month goes out to you, Sierra!
Personally of the Month:
The month started off with my family and I going off on vacation to Vermont. It was so beautiful up there and I never wanted to leave. I even got to zip line over Mount Mansfield, which was such a crazy experience. Definitely once in a lifetime.
When we came back it was just a matter of savouring the last month of summer as best as we could. I spent a lot of time with my cousins who were visiting from England, and it was great to see everyone together again. This was only a small portion of all my family together:
Now it just comes down to preparing for school to start and getting my life in order. I watched a lot of Game of Thrones and Friends to try and take my mind of things. I'm not excited for the school year if I'm being completely honest, and I am worried for the future. I think I just need to take things one day at a time.
That was my August! How was yours? Did you all have a good summer?
