Monthly Wrap Up: August

I have never done these before. Is it possible that I’m taking part to compensate for an almost total lack of other material and participation in the blog world over the past month?

It might be.

I graduated at the end of July and then in at the beginning of August went to Edinburgh to work at the International Book Festival for a few weeks.

This turned out to be one of the best decisions I have made for my life. For this blog, however, not so much.

Now that I am home and my body has given up from exhaustion and developed the sort of cold only Scotland can give a person, I will emerge from my corner, waving sheepishly.

Hey. Sorry if I infect you with anything while I’m here.

This month I reviewed:

A Thousand Pieces of You – Claudia Gray

Feelings: Meh. I have a vague idea that I might pick up the sequel but honestly it’s unlikely.

The Stars Never Rise – Rachel Vincent

Feelings: Not exactly original, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Not That Kind of Girl – Lena Dunham

Feelings: Let’s get coffee and become best friends

Running Girl – Simon Mason

Feelings: Let’s find you a better girl to solve murders with

Also read this month:

Guy In Real Life – Steve Brezenoff

Emmy and Oliver – Robin Benway

Winger – Andrew Smith

The Rest of Us Just Live Here – Patrick Ness

Scarlet – Marissa Meyer (playing some serious catch up here)


Armchair books, a gorgeous shop I found in Edinburgh. I was in there a long time.

  1. I started A Thousand Pieces of You but couldn’t get into it, sadly, I’ll continue it when I’m in the mood. It does have a promising premise but the writing leaves a lot to be desired.


  2. You still have two whole months before Winter is released, so plenty of time for you to finish Cress and Fairest! I’M SO EXCITED ABOUT WINTER!!!

    I’ve been meaning to pick up Emmy and Oliver for a while now. It sounds like something that’d be right up my alley. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts!
