August 2017 Wrap Up

August was a pretty good month but I focused less on reading and blogging and more on my family and artistic hobbies. I liked the balance. Sometimes I forget to give myself the freedom to do other things and then this becomes a bit of a chore. Nonetheless, taking any time away from the blog means I need to catch up with reviews, memes, etc. so hopefully I can find that balance in September as well! 
I also attempted to return more comments and visit more blogs this month (though I flopped during this last week) and I hope I can fit more of that in because I miss the community. 

I read 5 Books In August!

Books Finished:
Total Pages: 1531

2017 ABC Challenge

I hope you all had an amazing month! 


  1. I really want the audio cd of It but these things are so expensive!

  2. Curious what you thought of The Ice Dragon. I've never read that one even though I'm a fan of the GoT books. And summer's always a good time to step back f/ the blog a bit! Hope you have a good September...

  3. Great Wrap up! I really want to read the ASOIAF series by George RR Martin, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Here's my August Wrap Up @ Swissbookworm.
