August’s Round Up

August RU

What a busy month August has been! I have been featured one not one but 2 wonderful blogs – first up, I was Portobello‘s ‘Blogger in the Spotlight’ at the start of August, I was thrilled to be involved, my Q&A can be found here: Clair – Blogger in the Spotlight

I also featured on The Book Review Cafe with my #TopFiveThursday: #TopFiveThursday with book blogger Clair

During August I read 8 books, mostly from new-to-me authors:

Goodreads Challenge

August takes my Goodreads tally up to 54 books from an original challenge of 40 books – I was contemplating in adjusting my target but think I’m going to leave as it is and see how much I surpass it by.


20 books of summer

I did it! 20 books from the 1st June through to the 5th September – I actually will have snuck another 2 in by Monday 🙂 I really enjoyed this challenge – my initial book list has changed somewhat during the time (wheras others have set themselves book and stuck to them) however there was still 20 of them.

I really enjoyed this challenge and it was great to keep updating the post to check them off. You can find the whole list here with the links to each of the reviews. Well done to everyone who completed their lists or gave it a good go!

I See YouMy favourite book of August

Whilst there were lots of great books this month, it’s got to be I See You which took my breath away. Completely creeped out by this one and could not put it down. My review can be found here.

Coming up in September

Kicking off September was a review of Sharon Bolton’s Daisy In Chains and a Q&A with the lovely A.L. Michael in honour of the release of Nice Day for a White Wedding. I will also have a review of the book towards the end of September as part of the Neverland Blog Tour.

Reviews coming up in September include The Silent Twin by Caroline Mitchell and Black Out by Ragnar Jonasson. I am also fortunate to be on a number of fantastic blog tours including They All Fall Down by Cat Hogan and The Deviants by C J Skuse.

  1. Brilliant choice of books for August 🙂 I See You, The Silent Twin and The Irish Inheritance are all on my TBR.
    I use the same strategy for my 2016 Goodreads goal. As I have only gotten back on reading intensively in January (compared to the last few years), I set my goal to 30. I reached it in June and decided to see how far I would go this year to be able to set a more specific goal next year.
    Happy September!
