We have already reached the end of August! It really does seem like no time at all since I was writing my previous monthly wrap-up, but luckily I have managed to get plenty done in the meantime, so I am pleased to say that this was a fairly productive month!
First of all, I completed my Goodreads Reading Challenge! My target was 45, which I thought was quite ambitious at the time, so I cannot believe that I have reached it with four months still to go. What can I say, I have become truly devoted to books!
I managed to complete five books in August, and in doing so I have got quite attached to crime thrillers, thanks to the DI Adam Fawley series by Cara Hunter. I have also just begun rereading the Cormoran Strike series by J.K. Rowling (as Robert Galbraith).
So without further ado, here are the books I completed in August:

Sadly I could not think of any great ideas for a discussion post in August, but I did post a poem. Not perfect, but one I am quite happy with – here is the link:
However, I was able to get a lot of my own writing done, and I hope to finish my current WIP by the end of October. I am not far from the end, but there will be a lot of editing to do! Also very thankful to be out of the writing slump I encountered in July.
It was also my birthday in August. It was a fairly quiet one, although I did receive some very nice books, including Harry Potter: A History of Magic, which I am really looking forward to reading!
And finally, I have really enjoyed reading lots of brilliant bookish blog posts elsewhere this month. I follow a lot of other bloggers, and am always grateful to be part of this wonderful community.
Have a good weekend and a great September.
Happy reading 🙂
