August has definitely been my favourite month of the year. I was going to say “so far”, but let’s be honest, nothing can top this month (except for July).
I didn’t get much read. I fell in love with Jamie from Outlander, and reviewed it here. I got a good chunk of the sequel, Dragonfly in Amber, done too. I also read Black Swan Green for school (it wasn’t nearly as good as Outlander).
So, why was this month so great, you ask? Because I went to AMERICA!!! Tempe, Arizona to be precise, as well as trips away to Las Vegas, California, and Tuscon. It was definitely the best 5 weeks of my entire life. I talked about it here. I won’t keep going on about it, but if you were interested, I would definitely tell you more! I did the exchange through Tempe Sister Cities, so if you live in one of the cities listed on the site, I would highly recommend you take this amazing opportunity.
I was away for the first half of the month, because of being in America. But once I got back, I got straight into my blog again. Well, sort of… Not as much posting as I would have liked, unfortunately! Thanks to For the Love of Words, my weekly meme Exploring My Bookshelves was kept under control, with nothing for me to worry about.
I haven’t been running too far behind with my reviews, but I’m definitely not up to date with them. I posted a couple, and I did a few more tags, but next month I’m planning on getting a lot more organised with those!
Oh, and how could I forget my anniversary?!? Addlepates and Book Nerds turned one year old this month, and I couldn’t be prouder. Again, I love all of you for helping me – I can’t express that enough.
Like I said, not much to talk about this month. But the things that did happen were AMAZING
