Hi Everyone, it's that time of the month for the wrap-up post but that also mean it's the end of my summer holidays. At the beginning of the holidays I was thinking 'what am I going to do with myself?' as I love my job and I missed the library. But now that the time has gone, I've had a gorgeous holiday in Cornwall, I've been reading quite a lot, (although the TBR hasn't really gone down) lots of blog tours, celebration of kindness both on the blog and off . I feel that having this time off does lead to sending lots of money and obviously purchasing loads of books which doesn't help the TBR. Haha.

September starts a new term, full time hours, two school libraries and much more. So I'm very excited. Blog wise, there might be some fewer posts but I do have some cracking ones in September all part of a secret themed project next month. Reading will continue but I will be slower and more tired, so hitting that GR target at the end of the year seems so far away. Anywho, lets see what I've read and what I plan to read in September.

Books I Read

Are We All Lemmings and Snowlfakes? by Holly Bourne - 5/5
Songs About a Boy by Chris Russell - 5/5
Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas - 5/5 
The Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada - 5/5
The Cruel Design by Emily Suvada - 5/5

Books Reviewed

Books of the Month
I couldn't honestly choose between the both of these. This is Holly's best book without a doubt. And after discovering a new author and series, The Mortal Coil is nothing that I've ever read before. 

This Month I Received - thank you lovely publishers

Its been a great month for books! Although I have bought a few as well so I've gained books rather than trying to get the TBR down. The first 3 I have already devoured and read, I'm coming to the end of The Cruel Design which is out till November but oh my is this series addictive. The lovely people at Usborne sent me both books in the Perfect series including the new book releasing in September. I really want to get into some younger teen novels and these sound so spooky and autumny that I can't wait to devour these. 

Most Anticipated this Month

How was your month? What are your September TBR plans?


  1. Oooh! I didn't know that The Thousandth Floor had a 3rd book already! Gash I have to pickup that series again. I hope you enjoy the book :)

    1. Me neither until like a couple of weeks ago. Don't they have such beautiful covers.

    2. I LOVE the covers. And what's also very good, I noticed right away that it was a book from that series, I just recognized it, well done by the author/publisher.

  2. Ahh you had such a great reading month! I saw You Only Live Once at the bookstore the other day and thought it looks really good. Hopefully my library will get it in soon!

    1. I wish I read more but I love what I read this year. All books I couldn't out down. I can't wait to read YOLO. :)
