Today I’m recapping my August and talking about what I read, reviewed, and did in real life. I’m also going to talk about what’s to come on the blog next month!
Unfortunately, my August meant time for school (I started school on the 29th ) and coincidentally also time for a book slump! I spent so long just doing essentially nothing (besides do summer homework and stuff) but I didn’t have a particularly good reading month. August also means ARC August, in which I had hoped to read lots of ARCs but I only read one (lmaoooo).
For 2016, I signed up for 4 year-long challenges. You can see my overall progress here.
ARC August | Goal: 16 | 1 read

August was definitely not my reading month, which is why I didn’t reach my goal for ARC August (lol).

- This month was my first blogoversary, so I recapped my blogging year and hosted a giveaway. This giveaway runs until the third of September, so you still have time to enter!
- I participated in a few TTTs: Books with a School Trope, Sneak Peek at my Wishlist, and Releases I’m Dying For.
- I also did the Pokémon Go Book Tag, which Aentee @ Read at Midnight created.
- I posted the first in my new feature, Snapshot Series #1, in which I recapped a road trip to Pittsburgh!
- I also participated in a feature called When I First Saw You and made up a synopsis for The Odds of Lightning.
- If you don’t know already, I’m hosting a new feature called WELCOME TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD, in which I host 25 fairly new book bloggers on my blog. There will be interviews, guest posts, and giveaways! There’ll be an introduction post on my blog soon, so make sure to check that out!
- I’m also planning on posting another book haul soon… I started using the #booksfortrade hashtag on Twitter, and I’ve found it to be pretty amazing so far. I can’t wait to show y’all what I got!
