August Wrap-Up and September TBR

I read 5 books in August, which isn’t too bad even though it’s less than the 9 I read in July! I’m actually pretty happy because I managed to finish A Court of Thorns and Roses and they are big books.

I’m not going to pick a favourite and least favourite for this month because I’m happy to say these were all 5 star reviews!

Books I Bought in August

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Ravenclaw Paperback) – J.K. Rowling

I’m very happy that I only bought these 3 books this month! That’s such a low amount for me and these were all on sale too.

Books I Want to Read in September

Blue Lily, Lily Blue – Maggie Stiefvater
The Raven King – Maggie Stiefvater

My only goal for September is to finish this series, which shouldn’t be too hard as I’m already almost halfway through Blue Lily, Lily Blue. I start my first year of university this month so I’m not going to push myself other than that and I’m going to mood read when I can!

July Wrap-Up and August TBR

I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but I read nine books in July! I knew I’d read a lot, but I didn’t expect it to be quite that much.

My favourite book of the month was My Life Next Door and my least favourite was definitely Call me by Your Name! You can see my reviews by clicking the links above.

Books I Bought in July

A Court of Frost and Starlight – Sarah J. Maas
The Smoke Thieves – Sally Green
Leah on the Offbeat – Becky Albertalli
Save the Date – Morgan Matson
Still Alice – Lisa Genova
My Best Friends Exorcism – Grady Hendrix

It might look like I bought a lot this month, but I actually bought all of these with a voucher. Which means I didn’t spend any of my money on books this month – yay!

Books I Want to Read in August

A Court of Wings and Ruin – Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Frost and Starlight – Sarah J. Maas

I’d definitely like to finish this series in August but other than that I’m definitely going to mood-read! I’m really trying to make use of summer the best I can and that means reading what I’d like to 🙂

June Wrap-Up and July TBR

Unbelievably, I read double the amount of books this month as I read in May! This is completely and utterly due to The Selection series, which is so easy and quick to read.

Although I loved the first three books in The Selection series, it wasn’t my favourite of the month. In fact, The Upside of Unrequited was my favourite read, and Obsidio was by far my least favourite!

Books I Bought in June

Catwoman: Soulstealer – Sarah J. Maas
A Storm of Swords – George R.R. Martin
A Feast for Crows – George R.R. Martin

I mean, I could have done better and not bought any books at all, but 3 books isn’t bad and two were second-hand!

Books I Want To Read in July

The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas
Call Me by Your Name – Andre Aciman

I wanted to read Call Me by Your Name in June, but I ended up reading The Selection instead! As college is fully over for me now, I’m excited to be able to have a lot more time on my hands and I hope I’ll be able to read even more in July.

May Wrap-Up and June TBR

After such a successful April, May has gone a little downhill. I only managed to read 3 books! But I’m trying not to be disappointed in myself – it was a really busy month for me and I’m hoping to pick up again in June.

The best book I read in May was definitely Crooked Kingdom, and my least favourite was The Last Place on Earth. But I have to say I did enjoy all of the books above!

Books I Bought in May

Obsidio – Amie Kaufman
Call Me by Your Name – Andre Aciman
Legendary – Stephanie Garber

Well I didn’t have so much self-control in May but I’m still happy with just 3 books – I could have done a lot worse!

Books I Want To Read in June

Call Me by Your Name – Andre Aciman

Again, I’d really like to catch up with my Goodreads goal this month, and I will hopefully make that happen in some way. Apart from Call Me by Your Name, I’m not going to put any other restrictions on myself. The best way to complete my goal is to read what I feel like at the time, so I’ll leave my list alone apart from that one.

April Wrap-Up and May TBR

This is possibly the first month ever when I’ve hit the goal I set myself the previous month, and I am so so happy! My aim was to reach to finish Harry Potter and I actually did – and managed to read a novella too.

Books I Bought in April

Great Expectations – Charles Dickens

I am also so happy to say I only bought one book in April – and it kind of doesn’t count because it was second hand…right? I was so close to my goal of buying no books at all, and just one second hand book is good enough for me.

 

Books I Want To Read in May

Crooked Kingdom – Leigh Bardugo
Obsidio – Amie Kaufman
Call Me By Your Name – Andre Aciman

I’d love to read at least 5 books this month, which should get me back on top of my Goodreads goal, but I won’t feel too bad if I don’t. May is already shaping up to be busy, so we’ll see what life throws at me first!

March Wrap-Up and April TBR

I guess it’s time to face the fact I only read 2 books this month. Ugh. Ew. Why.

Well, I mean I’m not without my reasons! I managed to speed through Prisoner of Azkaban and then I was hit with Goblet of Fire. And as much as I love that book, it is 617 pages long, and if the text was the same size as the first 3, it would be double that.

So I am beating myself up about this tiny wrap-up, can I really blame myself? It is quite a challenge, even for me.

Books I Bought in March

Ready Player One – Ernest Cline
Ashes to Ashes – Jenny Han
The Fandom – Anna Day

Well I would say that’s definitely an improvement! I would like to possibly challenge myself and not buy any books at all in April, but 3 is definitely a lot better. I might not have succeeded in a complete ban, but we’re getting there!

Books I Want To Read in April

Honestly, I would just like to finish Harry Potter if I can. Although I’m loving Hogwarts, I can’t wait until I get into other stories once more! I’ll keep reading and keep my fingers crossed for that day coming in April.

February Wrap-Up and March TBR

I’m very happy to say I continued with my goal and read another 4 books in February. I would love to read more one of these months but I’m still happy with 4 as it means I’m on track to reading 50 this year!

So here are the books I read in February!

I don’t think I’m going to be able to pick a favourite/least favourite for a change this month! I’ve been really lucky and I think I rated all of these books 5 stars.

Books I Bought in February

Alex and Eliza – Melissa de la Cruz
The Hobbit/The Lord of the Rings boxed set – J.R.R. Tolkien
The Last Place on Earth – Carol Snow
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – J.K. Rowling

So I bought 7 books in February, which might seem like a lot but as 4 were in a boxed set secondhand, I think I’ll forgive myself! Harry Potter and Alex and Eliza were part of a deal and the other was a reward for getting a place in one of the unis I applied to.

All that said, I would like to maybe have a little more self control in March!

 

Books I Want To Read in March

Instead of listing them all I’m going to just say that I’d really love to finish Harry Potter at some point soon. Maybe in March would be a little ambitious, but I’m speeding through the third book and I seem to be getting through them quickly!
