August Wrap Up!

can’t believe it’s September! This year has gone way too quickly. I mean, I only have a month and a half of my second last year of school. It’s a bit overwhelming.

Okay, so enough about school. This post is dedicated to my August wrap up. Overall it wasn’t a bad month. For the past couple of weeks, I have been on the edge of a reading slump and I’m still on the edge but hopefully I’ll be out of it soon.

During this month, I read …. books which wasn’t too bad. As for book buying, I acquired 14 books. Most of these I received in giveaways, from authors/publishers and from my wonderful mum.

Without further a do, here is my August wrap up:
