AUGUST WRAP-UP + URG, SEPTEMBER. BOOKS I NEED TO READ OTHERWISE WORLDS WILL EXPLODE AND CAKES WILL BURN.

URGH. HI.

In under a week I go back to school. And as you read this I am now in WALES. We’ve only gone for two nights, but it was really nice! And I’ve just been canoeing for the first time. . .  This WHOLE summer holiday has gone FAR too quickly.

I wish that I could just carry on eating cake all day, but the universe has other plans where I become the dark leader of the galaxies and run over all my subjects. jk I already do that. It’s actually been a great month.

I went to London, I went to Cornwall for 2 weeks I ate a lot of scrumptious scones, not as brilliant as cake but pretty yummy, met up with friends they didn’t buy me cake, how dare they! Rude I tell you, and generally had a good time while eating lots of cake. It’s been a really relaxing holiday. And of course, I got a good amount of reading done!

Favourites this month:

  • AWKWARD TV SHOW

This honestly lifts my spirits every time that I watch it. It’s actually really relatable and SO FUNNY.

I’m normally not a fan for contemporary TV shows and prefer fantasy things, like Vampires and Zombies and cake.

But honestly,, I AM SO GLAD I’VE STARTED WATCHING IT. I could watch it for hours on end. IT’S GREAT BUT NOT AS GREAT AS CAKE.

  • IMAGINE DRAGONS ALBUM – EVOLVE.

It is SO GOOD. This is by far their best album yet and it’s got some of my favourite songs already on there and I think I must have listened to it 20 times in in the past few weeks.Screen Shot 2017-08-28 at 01.50.17

  • WATERLOGGED

IT’S SUCH A GREAT APP. It’s really good for tracking water intake, which makes sure that I drink enough because IM A TERRIBLE CAMEL-HUMAN WHO NEVER DRINKS. I got it to see if water intake would help make my skin better AND IT’T WORKING. My skin is getting so much better! what we all really need is a cake tracking app, it wold be wonderful . . . 

  • THIS SAVAGE SONG.

This book blew me away, more even than dream thieves! IT WAS THAT GOOD. I totally fell in love with Verity and AUGUST. . . MY SMOL AUGUST.

I just want to hug him and give him cake.

I read it so damn fast.

I just got so consumed. V.E Schwab KNOWS how to makes people want the next book I tell thee.

TBR for next month:

1. A gathering of shadows.

I NEED TO READ THIS.

LITERALLY, I OWN IT. IT’R RIGHT THERE. I SEE IT NOW.

IT’S JUST ACROSS THE ROOM.

2. A Christmas carol

This one is for school :(. I was meant to read it this month but… I haven’t finished it.

I KNOW. HOW ON EARTH WAS I TO READ THIS IN SUMMER?

3. Our dark duet. 

If I don’t read this WORLDS WILL EXPLODE AND ALL MY CAKEION CHILDREN WILL BURN. I WILL HAVE THIS BOOK SOON THE EXCITE IS REAL AND IM GOING MAD FINALLY HAVE IT.

4. Gemina! 

It feels like forever since I read Illumiae, which totally stole my heart and took my breath away. Im so hyped for this next instllemnt and then obsidio!

Because I’m going back to school I can’t read too much if I want to be able to keep up with the work, I I don’t think that I’ll get a tonne of reading done, I’m afraid. URGH I know as EMPRESS OF ALL THE GALAXIES, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO JUST GET RID OF SCHOOLS ALL TOGETHER.

I’ve also been contacted about reading an ARC called ‘The Devil’s Advocate’ AND GHSDJHFJSDGS IT JUST GOT SENT TO ME #EXCITE! It seems really interesting from what the author sent me, but I don’t really know how all the ARC stuff really works :/

  1. I love your new blog design! So floral and fresh! 😀

    And it looks like you read some amazing books! I LOVE A Darker Shade of Magic, so I’m always happy to see others that enjoyed it as well! I really want to read Outlander since watching the first season! It’s such a fantastic show. And I have yet to get to Stiefvater’s Raven Cycle. I read the first book years ago but never continued on. It sounds like I should definitely keep reading, based on the reviews that I’ve skimmed on some of the other books!

    I’m reading This Savage Song now and my god, I love it. I am only 50 pages in and I am HOOKED. August is my smol cinnamon roll. I just wanna hug him.

    Good luck on your reads this month and hope school goes well for you! 😀

    1. OMG YAS YAS YAS THIS SAVAGE SONG OMG YAS I HAD THE EXACT SAME THING. I literally said the same as you in my review too!! ISNT HE ADORABLE AND I JUST. okay hmu when you finish it because we JUST HAVE TO DISCUSS.

      afahaaaaa I’ve only read up to Dream Thieves, dunno when I’ll get to continue, and ASKAGRBHS it’s superb.

      That’s how I got into outlander ahaha Season 2 is great and I need to read the next book but it’s so intimidating. (1200 pages!)

      Aww thank you!! (school tomorrow is going to be tough ahah!!)

      1. Ok, girl. I finished, and let me just say: AUGUST IS TOO FREAKING PURE FOR THAT WORLD. I LOVE HIM. I WANT TO GIVE HIM ALL THE VIOLINS IN THE WORLD. Also, I loved his platonic friendship with Kate. Hope that doesn’t change in the second one! I mean, a book without romance is kind of making my head spin LOL.

        Hopefully Raven Cycle lives up to the hype! I’m mostly continuing the series for Ronan and Adam though 😉

        I’m only a few episodes into the 2nd season. The France setting bothered me. I missed Scotland so I took a break from the series and forgot to go back LOL. But now that the 3rd season is coming soon, I have to catch up now! And 1200 pages? My god….You can do it!

        Hope school is going well for you! 😀

  2. I haven’t listened to all of Imagine Dragons’ songs on Evolve but BELIEVER IS A VERY GOOD SONG AND I LOVE IT. Also??? All those books on your August TBR are absolutely amazing??? Except I’ve never read A Christmas Carol ahahha. And omgggg I DON’T DRINK ENOUGH WATER EITHER. Some days I can last on like,, just one sip. IT SUCKS I TELL YOU. I might have to download that app to help me!! (But I’m mainly at school all day and we’re not allowed to bring backpacks to our classes — WHY??? — and I’m too lazy to carry my water bottle + my books and THEN I DON’T DRINK ANYTHING.) Wow that was a long rant sorry!! Anyways, great post and happy September!!!
