Monthly Round-Up – August 2014
Well, August certainly flew by! It was a very quick month despite me being on the countdown to my holidays! I didn’t get as much reading done as I would have liked but I was pretty distracted with life stuff this month. I am hoping to get back on track next month. Here are my highlights from this month.
Books I read this month:
Still not a great amount read in August. I am hoping to catch up in September when I have a 2 week vacation from work.
Books I reviewed this month:

I was finally able to unveil my review for Fool’s Assassin which I read back in April. A fantastic start to what is sure to be an amazing and heartbreaking series.
Top Read of the Month:
Isla and the Happily Ever After was finally released this month – and it was everything I hoped it would be! I would go as far to say this is my favourite out of the series. Look out for my review soon.
Top Cover of the Month:
I won this in a giveaway in June and I have been waiting (im)patiently for this to arrive. I received my copy from the publisher this month. Many thanks to Picador Books and to Ula @ Blog of Erised for hosting the giveaway! Isn’t the cover absolutely stunning?
I reached my 1 year blogoversary this month! I cannot believe I have been blogging for over a year now.
I am beginning to think I better cut my losses with my reading challenges this year. I do not seem to be making much progress with them. I am going to try to get these put in order in September.
Top Posts this Month:
My review for Fool’s Assassin was probably my most popular post this month (besides the weekly memes I take part in which usually are the most viewed posts). I am really happy about this because I loved this book and wanted to spread that love as widely as I could!
My post celebrating my 1 Year Blogoversary also got a fair amount of views as did my 55 Bookish Quesions survey. I was also pleased to see my (slightly) revamped Book Buzz post for new releases in September was pretty popular.
