My Bookish Month of August 2019

Hello and welcome to another monthly overview!  Unsurprisingly, I got quite a lot of reading done this month, what with three weeks off work. Naturally, it doesn’t matter how much I’ve read, because I’ve also been adding to the TBR… again. In related news: I’ve bought a new bookcase too this month, since my wall of crates was groaning under the weight of too many books. So now I have lots of space and the obvious thing to do is… Someone please send help!
I didn’t post a whole lot this month, because I was reading in preparation of #Orentober and also because I was reading… just for fun, imagine that!

So here’s what I’ve read and reviewed this month, and some of what I’ll be posting next month:

Amy Lee / Lonely Boy by The Black Keys / I Wanna Be Yours by Arctic Monkeys), a #BiteSizeSaturday and a Q&A with Neil Richards & Matthew Costello, authors of A Shot in the Dark.

And my book of the month is….

Not one book but two, and they both kept me up at night:

And that’s a wrap! Thanks for joining me today, I hope you all had a fabulous month, bookish and otherwise, and here’s to another one!
