Literary Life: August in Review

Highlight of my bookish August was meeting up with Charlie from The Worm Hole, we had a lovely day in Brighton walking around bookshops and (more so in my case) buying books.

I feel as though I’ve done nothing to my blog last month, it was a bit of a summer break. I plan on getting back on track, and back on my blogging schedule as of now.

Hi September, bring on jumpers and cosy book nooks.

Currently Reading:

Cat’s Eye by Margaret Atwood
The Odyssey by Homer
Mother Tongue by Bill Bryson
(I really should finish these three, or give up)

The Story of the Lost Child by Elena Ferrante

Unfinished:

None!

I’ve Read:

  1. The Miniaturist by Jessie
  2. Made in Reality by Stephanie Pratt
  3. Tender by Belinda McKeon
  4. Kauthar by Meike Ziervogel
  5. She is Not Me by Golnaz Hashemzadeh
  6. Street of Thieves by Mathias Énard

How was your literary August?

Lord, I feel like I can’t even remember August! This has been a tremendously hectic month, and it’s only halfway through. I read some things! For sure! :p

I LOVED Tender! What did you think of it?

I’m sorry to say (or happy to say – always difficult to know) I’ve kept the few books thing going.

September’s a good time for getting back into blogging, I think the whole back-to-school/university idea helps even if your own schedule isn’t changing. And as for the books, perhaps finish them one by one or just prioritise one of them more.

Will you be writing about Kauthar? *Crosses fingers* :)

Buy all the books. Bwahaha. ;D

I have one book I have been reading for months and read two others instead.. Some you just can’t seem to get interested in. -_-

Wow, tell me your secrets to reading so much! I’m struggling to finish my one book I’ve been reading for weeks. It doesn’t help that it’s a massive hard cover beast that I can’t be bothered lugging around anywhere.
