August 2016 Wrap Up

augustwu

I am quite content with what I managed to read this month. Somehow I have turned from amazing books to a reading slump, but more about that later. Here’s what I managed to read in August:

So, I technically put the following books on my TBR, because I got them all for my birthday, but I didn’t officially list them yet.

This Savage Song  (Monsters of Verity, #1)   Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One and Two (Harry Potter, #8)   Gone Wild   Player   The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere, #1)   The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)   The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)   Hamilton: The Revolution

As always, click on the titles above to get to the reviews (or on the name of the people I read the books with, to get to their reviews if they are up yet) and on the covers to be redirected to Goodreads!

I am on my FIRST holiday since starting to work at the bookshop in February and it doesn’t feel like a vacation at all, because every day is fully scheduled and busy to no end. I wish I could take more time off, but it will have to do. However, the closer my days off came, the less and less I read. I have absolutely no idea what inspired this massive reading slump, but at least I caught up on some of TV watching habits. Most notoriously I got obsessed with Wynonna Earp and Stranger Things, because why not? And I got into a funk because of Roadies ending and am already a little bit in love with Victoria. Don’t even get me started on movies! Whiskey Foxtrot Charlie occupied my mind for days!

Remember how we were close to 700 followers last month? Well, Life and Other Disasters surpassed 765 followers and it’s all thanks to you! You are all amazing (and slightly crazy) for following my random ramblings, but I appreciate each and everyone of you to Mars and back! If you haven’t entered yet, there is still a little birthday/thank you giveaway going on right now and you have about 2 more days to enter for a chance to win a book from Book Depository up to 15 Euros! Just click here for more info! I wish you the best of luck.

  1. Looks like you had a mostly great reading month, save for Gone Wild! And yay for working at the bookshop, though I’m sorry that you’re in a reading slump. I think it’s OK to take a break and not worry about not reading… I mean, it should be fun first and foremost of all. 🙂

  2. Holidays! Enjoy them, because they go so fast! Then you’ll be ready to kick that slump’s ass 🙂
    I used to plan my days off so much that it took all the fun of it, but sometimes we have no choice if we want to make things happen instead of staying in bed in our pajamas xD I hope you get some real down time anyway 🙂

    • I wish this were a real holiday, it’s just one obligation after the other. My uncle is getting married, so there’s tons to do and I even have to read something at the ceremony and help hosting a game … I feel like I am going to need a break from this holiday afterwards. Staying home in pajamas sounds about like heaven right now.
