That’s A Wrap: August 2017

EtheringtonHeaders-That's A Wrap.jpgI’ve been shaking up my blog a little bit recently, playing around with the categories I have, getting rid of some and this is a new one I’ve been thinking about doing for a while now. I’ve seen a lot of monthly wrap up posts on other blogs, and I’ve always thought they were a great way to take stock and reflect on what you’ve put out each month. I’m trying to be more conscientious about my scheduling and what I post when, so I’m hoping this new post will help me keep track of that.


Reading Summary:

This month I’ve read six books, which isn’t as much as I would have liked, but now that my dissertation and my MA are finally complete I’m hoping to bury myself in as many books as I can, and catch up on some reviews.

  1. The Duff by Kody Keplinger
  2. The Power by Naomi Alderman
  3. The Outsiders by S E Hinton
  4. A Darker Shade of Magic by V E Schwab
  5. History Is All You Left Me By Adam Silvera
  6. All The Man Is by David Szalay

Other News

My blog is going under a subtle re-vamp. You might have noticed my lovely blog banner, designed by my wonderful friend Becky. She’s been absolutely fantastic and you should definitely check out her Etsy page.


Another exciting life update is that my sister officially asked me to be her bridesmaid which means she can’t take it back now, so she’s forced to put up with me until her wedding day.

How was your reading month?

  1. Have you read The Rest of Us Just Live Here yet? I got it back when it came out but didn’t make it all the way through. I’m curious to here what you think! History Is All You Left Me is such a great novel! I read it about a month ago and it left me in so many tears! 😦

      1. I don’t really remember why I stopped it… I might have just been in a reading slump but it was just never getting too interesting for me
