Stacking the Shelves & Wrappin’ It Up August 2015

Stacking the Shelves

I had so many wonderful plans this weekend to schedule lots of posts, but as they say “the best laid plans of mice and men…”. I’m sticking with my latest fitness craze, and while that’s a great thing, it’s also eating into my reading and blogging time more than I thought it would. Sacrifices, eh? On a happy note though, The Script were amazing in concert, as usual.

The Script 2015

The Books:

This month, I started picking up a few Christmas presents (yes, I like to be prepared) and in the process picked up a book or two for me as well. The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach, The Bay at Midnight by Diane Chamberlain, The Falls by Ian Rankin (Stef will be pleased!), After by Anna Todd (heard lots of good things about this one), and Shadow Study by Maria V Snyder were my picks this month, and of course… Queen of Shadows arrived today!

Movies and TV Shows:

I’ve been catching up with Once Upon A Time again this month, but haven’t been watching much else. I wish I had enough time to rewatch One Tree Hill, but I’ll get around to it eventually.

Wrappin’ It Up!

As always, I’m linking to the latest Oh, The Books! weekly recap post so you can find more amazing things to read!

In Case You Missed It:

I'll Meet You There Book Cover

This was a terrible blogging month for me! I really need to do better in September! This month I reviewed Point of Retreat (4.5/5), The Sky Is Everywhere (3.5/5), I’ll Meet You There (4.5/5), and Everything, Everything (4/5).

Top Ten Tuesday – I haven’t really felt very enthusiastic about this month’s topics, except for Top Ten Autobuy Authors. Here’s hoping I’m inspired by next month’s picks, because I miss taking part in them and visiting everyone else’s.

This month I also did The Random Questions Tag, and wrote a guest post for A Way Into YA.

My most popular posts in August were my review for All The Light We Cannot See, and the interview with the cover designer for the new Bloomsbury Harry Potter covers.

  1. August was a pretty slow month for me, too! Hopefully September will be a better month for me despite it being my busiest this year (wedding plans, relatives visiting, and oh, so many releases to read…). I’m so jealous that you got a copy of Queen of Shadows so easily! I checked my bookstore today for a physical copy and they were out of stock. You can’t really underestimate this fandom, I tell you, haha! Good luck with September 😀

    The Script?! I love them! Yay for keeping up with your fitness!! I’m happy for you. 🙂 I’ve noticed reading and blogging have been a lot less for me these days because of my fitness efforts, too. I have been walking over lunch when I normally blog. There’s always a happy medium, we just have to find it! xx


  3. There are some seriously awesome looking posts up there! I am bookmarking this page, so I know where I need to go to check out some great posts! I wish that I was as prepared as you are… Christmas presents in September is AWESOME!
