August 2017 Wrap Up!

Can you believe August is over already? This summer absolutely flew by! August especially was such a busy month for me - I was volunteering for two weeks in South Africa at the start of this month so there was no chance whatsoever for me to blog between all the work I was doing (as well as the fact that there was very little internet in the little village I was staying at). However I did get quite a bit of reading done so even though I've very few blog posts put up, it was still a productive reading month! Let's see how much I read!

 I also read the five novellas that go with the Shadow and Bone trilogy, but since they were all less than 100 pages do they really count??

Currently Reading:


Never finished:


I just couldn't get into Atlantia, unfortunately. I bought it only because it was €3 so there's no love lost, I wasn't expecting anything huge, but it's always sad to have to give up on a book. I made it halfway, at least.

Not a bad month, if I do say so, but I guess 16 hour planes to Africa definitely helps! I spent the majority of the month in Leigh Bardugo's Grishaverse, while also going back to World War II in Salt to the Sea. 

Did you have a good reading month? What did you read? Let me know in the comments!

  1. You got to go to South Africa? That’s really cool. I still need to read Salt to the Sea and Six of Crows. I’ve heard good things about both of them.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Yes, it was so amazing, an experience of a life time <3 Definitely add those books to your TBR, you don't want to miss out on them!

  2. A month in the Grishaverse sounds like an excellent way to spend your summer! That, and South Africa, which must of been amazing :D. I don't think I'm going to read Allantia, just because I wasn't quite a fan of Ally Condie's Matched series. But oh well! Glad you had such a great month, and welcome back to the blogging universe! :)

    1. Haha, it definitely was!! South Africa was amazingly beautiful; I had such a great time!If you ever get the chance, I would definitely recommend going sometime! I don't think I'm going to read the Matched series now as I heard it;s meant to be very similar to Atlantia! And thanks, it's great to be back :)

  3. I think novellas totally count ;) Sad to hear about Atlantia- I don't think I have found one person who DID like that one, sadly. Also, South Africa sounds amazinG! I hope you had a fabulous time- and such a wonderful thing to do, the volunteering! South Africa has always been on my bucket list :) Hope your September is great, too!

    1. Yay I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks novellas count!! It was so fantastic, there's a reason it's on your bucket list! I hope you get a chance to go sometime. And thanks, I hope your September si great too!!

  4. South Africa! That would be fun! I love to travel and I bet Africa is lovely.

    Also I tagged you for The Longest Book Tag!

    1. Yes, Africa was beautiful!! And thank you so much!!
