August Wrap Up (too many books)

Hello there and welcome to another wrap up 🙂

August was an incredible month for me, not only from reading perspective, but also on a more personal note. It was a month of decision making and acting on those decisions. I put on paper all my ideas and it was good to see those thoughts someplace else than in my (already crowded) brain. I hope to keep this up for the coming months as well, but let me tell you a little of what’s been happening.

It all started with me realizing how many books I have started and not finished (because I am messy and mostly unorganized) and from here I moved on to all the things I wanted to do but never acted on those wants. I’ve made my first steps towards a sewing shop that will combine my love for sewing with my love for crochet. I will update you guys along the way, but this is a book blog and will remain so.

Also I have taken steps towards buying a domain for my blog. You will probably see design changes soon, so I apologize for any strange things you will see (it will take some time until I define my style). I’ve read so many good books lately and all these amazing authors deserve to be praised. I am happy and proud to be among those helping promote their work.

In regards to my reading activity for this month, let me tell you … I’ve read like crazy.  I felt that slump knocking at my door and I wanted to push it away, so so far away. The best way was to read and resist 🙂 and so I did. It help a lot that I had 2 weeks off from work and immediately after I participated in a readathon (all about my experience is in my Fairytaleathon Wrap Up). There were so many books and so little time to review all of them, but reviews will follow. Let me show you the titles I’m talking about:

Not too bad, I’d say, especially since some of them have now a special place in my heart. I have read a lot!!! I was lucky most of them were audiobooks and some was very small and I could finish 2-3 books in a day. My time away from the office did help a lot!  September will bring more exciting articles and events. I am already into my TBR now and there are some very promising books coming. I must finish somehow the books already started, I have tons of articles I’ve been meaning to write but never started doing that. Busy, busy, busy, but busy doing what I like!

That’s it for now, stay around for more articles and lots of reviews. Let me know in the comments below if you have read any of these books or just how was your month in general 🙂 Until next time, happy reading 🙂
