fave book of the month

cover109499-medium

Although I enjoyed The Sixteen Trees too, there was something about Copycat, a fast paced thriller, that made me a little bit more happy.

book goal update

I’m up to 60 books, woohoo. But, I’m disappointed with my ahead of schedule number. Goddamn this reading slump! I’m off on holiday on Monday, and I hope I’ll get a whole lot of reading done.

 

 

personal update

I can’t really think of much else to say this month other than I GOT A CAR!!

This is my first ever car, and I got lots of funding from family members as a 21st birthday present (my birthday isn’t until November, though), so it hasn’t cost me too much.

I haven’t done much else this month, as I have two holidays coming up in September! So, other than the car, I’ve been saving my money. Not very exciting, I know.

 

that's a wrap

That’s all for this month ladies & gents! I hope you’ve all had a lovely August, here’s to an even better September!

  1. Look at that car 😍😍😍😍 and that’s your first car – talk about ‘go hard or go home!’ My first car was a banger, a tiny lil 05 Micra 🙈
    And Deep Down Dead is all kinds of awesome, enjoy!

  2. Woo, awesome car! I love happy news like that. 🙂

    4 books might not be as many as you’d hope, but it’s still a number greater than zero. So that’s something! I’ve been having to talk myself out of my own reading slump, and so have been trying to look at the positives. Here’s hoping we both have a more productive September!

  3. Congratulations on your first car. Its gorgeous. I got my first one too this year. Enjoy it.

    Your books all sound great so that is still a win. I really wanted to read Copy Cat but unfortunately couldn’t get the ARC. I will get a copy of the book though someday especially since you mentioned that it was great.

    Happy new month.
