August Highlights

I hope everyone had an amazing summer. My summer has come to an end, if only the summer heat would go away with it. My Cutie Pie has started back up with school. She is in the second grade. Since I was traveling on vacation and now visiting with my Dad (he is in town which makes me so happy) I am not getting back on track as soon as I had wanted. Hoping September will hold more time for reading once our day by day routine gets back to normal.

  1. Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss #1) by Stephanie Perkins
  2. Manroot by Anne Steinberg
  3. Compulsion by Martina Boone via Edelweiss

  5. Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss #1) by Stephanie Perkins

Other Highlights I'm Excited About:

  • I started Let's Build A Fan Cast. You can read the introduction explaining this here and this month we are casting Throne of Glass, so get your nominations in here!
  • I joined the Compulsion Street Team. Which I am very ecstatic about! So excited and happy to be a part of it. 
  • And speaking of Compulsion by Martina Boone, have you seen the trailer yet? You should. I shared this post on my blog last month with info on where to find the trailer. There is also a big Prize Vault keep checking it out! 
  • So this month means that one year ago, I posted my first post on this blog. I was REALLY new to blogging and didn't really know how to start. Looking back there is a lot I would have changed. I might have started it in September, but didn't start actively blog until February 2014. But I am thinking of having a little small giveaway near the end of the month to celebrate, since I am still excited about writing my WELCOME post a year ago. 
I still can't believe how quickly August flew by. And I am sure September will be zipping by fast too.


  1. Hey, congrats on one year! I've got Compulsion, and I'm so looking forward to reading it! Soon. Yay. :)
