August 2015: Recap & Wrap-Up!

I kind of spent the month of August playing catch-up. I struggled through a couple of slower books and finally picked up the pace again once I shook a mini-reading slump but overall I think it went well!


  • Number of Books Read: 10! Whew, that’s the best month I’ve had in a while!!
  • Popular Search Terms:  “books like divergent” and “books like anna and the french kiss” // “lunar chronicles personality quizzes” // “secret sisters get to know you game”
  • More Amusing Search Terms: “how to do french kiss step by step” (why is this a thing???) // “tamlin x feyre lemon” (Lemon?) // “it the word presign correct” (what page did you land on?) // “locke lamora disguises” (LOVE THIS)
  • Most Referrals (non-social media): Alexa Loves BooksPerpetual Page Turner, Rather Be Reading
  • Where My Blog Most Often Leads You (non-internal/social media): Join the Resistance with The Lunar Chronicles, Tripping Over Books, Books Take You Places



Other Reviews Posted

  • The ARMADA audiobook was fantastic!
  • I struggled with INK AND BONE and ultimately decided it wasn’t the book for me.
  • I finally read GONE GIRL for the first time!
  • VENGEANCE ROAD was my first Western and I really had so much fun reading it!
  • I love YA thrillers and THE FIXER was no exception!
  • It’s so hard to read a new book by your favorite author sometimes. I REALLY enjoyed SIX OF CROWS but didn’t quite fall head over heels for it.

    Sounds like you had a really great month Brittany! 10 books is awesome, I haven’t read 10 in total over the last few months, but I’m kicking that up the bum! Love your instagram photos mucho and hope next month inspires you too! 🙂
