August 2017 Wrap-Up

August is the first month after YALC, which means i’m naturally more likely to want to read and i can pick any book from my book shelf without worrying if that author is attending YALC or not and i want to get the book signed. So, i’ve had a pretty good reading month. It’s been like walking in to a book shop and pulling whatever i wanted off the shelves, but in my own home, it’s a whole sense of freedom i forget existed (Dramatic? Probably not).

July Wrap-Up 2017

In June i ended up having a really great reading month, i think that was definitely because YALC stress was setting in. At the start of July i was hopeful for another really great reading month as YALC was the last weekend of the month. Sadly it’s now been and gone (keep an eye out for the mass amount of YALC posts coming your way), but for now, here are the books that i managed to cram in before the end of the month.

Best Books Of The Year (So Far)

There’s no time like the middle of the year to think about what you’ve read so far and what you loved. I’ve always done monthly wrap-ups and yearly round-ups of what i’ve read, what my ratings were and my favourites. However, i figured i may as well throw a post in mid-year about what i absolutely adored from this year so far. It might give you a little inspiration as to what to read for the next six months!

June 2017 Wrap-Up

It literally seems like a few days ago since i was finishing my May wrap-up. No. It was a whole month of reading ago. My goal for June this year was to basically just have another good reading month. I really wanted to make sure i kept to my yearly target and also worked hard towards finishing most of my YALC TBR. So it meant i had another busy month ahead of me…

BEDM: May 2017 Wrap-Up

I cannot believe we’ve reached the end of May! Doing monthly wrap-ups mean you realise how fast the time is going. I’m sure you know from my other blog posts and from Twitter that i’m in the midst of a YALC panic. I have so many books i want to read before YALC and i definitely don’t think i’ll get through them all. So for the next few months i’ll be solely reading books from authors who are attending YALC and i want to get to before the event. May was the start of that.
