August Wrap Up-2018 (And 1 year blogiversery!)

It’s that time of month again my bookish friends, it’s time for another Monthly Wrap Up! Also I am celebrating one whole year of blogging! It’s been an amazing year, and I have fallen in love with the blogging community, you are all so amazing and supportive, it makes doing this so much fun. I never would have thought when I started that in only a short year I would have over 400 followers, I am so grateful that you all want to read my bookish ramblings every week! August was a great month for me, as I really got time to sit down and read before classes start again in September.

One Dark Throne By: Kendare Blake 3/5 Stars

This sequel to Three Dark Queens was compelling but didn’t quite live up to the dark and exciting story of the first book. It suffered from the classic sequel slog for me, but hopefully book three will be better!

And I Darken By: Kiersten White 4/5 Stars

This book was an awesome surprise, I knew nothing about it before I started, and I really loved it. It is full of compelling characters and interesting historical re-tellings. I mean Vlad the Impaler re-imagined as a fierce warrior woman, need I say more?

The Loneliest Girl in the Universe By: Lauren James 4/5 Stars

This was an insane book! I started off thinking it would be a cute scifi romance, a fluffy and light read… how wrong I was. This book surprised the heck out o me, in the best way possible.

My Plain Jane By: Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows 3.5/5 Stars

Another enjoyable book by the Lady Janies, though not quite as funny as the first one (My Lady Jane). It is a fun re-telling of the Jane Eyre story with Ghosts and even an appearance from Charlotte Bronte herself.

I love book tags, they are such an awesome way to get to know other bloggers and to share some info about me with you guys! This was a slow month for tags, but I did do a really fun one: the #Notall book tag.

  1. Happy one year blogiversary, Norees! ❤

    I hope you enjoy Ace of Shades (it's nothing like Six of Crows, though – just in case you've heard those two being compared as well), and thanks for reminding me of the Lady Jane series, I really need to get to it sometime. 😄

    I'm so happy to have found you through Jenna's post, your blog is so pretty, and I can't wait to see more of your posts!! ❤

  2. What a lovely post! Thanks for including me 💗 I’m back at school this month, so I don’t have too much a planned TBR but I really want to read Nevernight by Jay Kristoff.

  3. Thank you so much for the shoutout! Also, I really hope you enjoy Ace of Shades and This Savage Song! They’re both soooo good and a little dark. I’ve been hearing great things about The Loneliest Girl in the Universe and am really intrigued now. I may have to add it to my TBR soon! Great reading month!
