August Monthly Wrap Up


lifeupdate-09Another month of blogging is now complete. This next month won’t be filled with that many book reviews because atm money is tight so I can’t buy anything. First, let’s talk about how I did this month in regards to blogging. I have written 17 blog posts (including this one) this month. My stats for the month (excluding today) are 546 views, 236 visitors, 150 likes, 40 comments, and views from 31 different countries. Everything went up from last month and that means so much to me I hope to continue spreading joy with my posts. This month I really didn’t do much. I went to a party but I haven’t been out much besides errands. I completed reading all of the books I have bought and got a lot of artwork done. The next few months always tend to be some of my most eventful so that will be exciting.

The Best Thing I Did This Month: Getting through my books lol.

Favorite Art Project I Completed: My favorite project would have to be the book posters I did and a moon watercolor drawing. I have pictures but I have a post coming next Monday so I want them to be a surprise.

Now let’s take an inside view of what went down in July.


This month was excellent and sad for my reading. It is excellent because I read A LOT but now I have no books for September lol *CUE TEARS*. I read Non-Heir (The Black Mage Novella), This Savage Song, Dryland, Rooftops of Tehran, Tiger Lily, The Gospel of Loki, and The Lumatere Chronicles Trilogy (Finnikin of the Rock, Froi of the Exiles, and Quintana of Charyn.) In total that is 9 books completed. 1 is an Ebook & 8 are physical copies. We shall see what next month has in store.

My top book(s) that I have read this month is The Lumatere Chronicles Trilogy. My runner up is This Savage Song.


My Best post this month was my A Conjuring of Light Book Review with 43 views. My runner ups were my Would You Rather Book Tag (41 views) and Book Covers: What I Like and What I don’t Post (32 views). If you have not read my posts and would like to here is my August posts happy reading πŸ™‚

  1. I’m not a great fan of Cassandra Clare’s books, although I like the writing. However, there’s Malec and the characters from The Infernal Devices, so yeah, I probably have a love hate relationship with it too.

      1. I thought the Dark Artifices was fun, but I didn’t like it as much as The Infernal Devices. I do agree that both of them are more easy reads than The Mortal Instruments though.

  2. I need to catch up on Shadowhunters. Have you seen the Movie version? What do you think of the T.V. series? I actually really like both. The show can get cheesy sometimes and the acting was not that great in the first season, but I still love it lol. Awesome reading month by the way! I need to catch up with my TBR before I buy or request more books…but I can’t help it sometimes…
