Monthly Reading Recap – August

Posted by Steph on September - 1 - 2013

Thank goodness August is over. Don’t get me wrong, I cherish everyday, but I LOVE fall weather…and of course kids going back to school 🙂 However, that does mean I also start school, but I’ve always been a nerd (imagine that, right?) and kind of enjoyed it.

So throughout August I managed to read 7 books and completed a bookish wall art project for myself!

Be sure to check out what some of my favorite book bloggers have been up to this past month too!

Nikki at Book Reviews by Nikki Hawkes read a ton of amazing books, so if you need reading inspiration head on over her way.

Chiara at Books for a Delicate Eternity participated in ARC August and read tons of great ones!

Briana and her crew over at Pages Unbound provided a bunch of great reviews too along with some blogger interviews worth checking out.

I also enjoyed Kerri at Turn the Page Reviews reviews this month. They aren’t books I would instantly gravitate towards, but that’s what I like…learning about books outside my comfort zone.

What were you up to last month?
