I was reading through my old posts a while ago, and found one that I had completely forgotten about! It was If Characters Wrote Blogs, and I gave characters a niche kind of blogger they would be if they had a blog. I’ve since read many books that have perfect candidates for bloggers in them, so I thought it was time I write another one of these posts!

I could so see her making a cute little baking blog where she posts recipes of all these delicious cookies and baked goods she makes!

E. Lockhart’s new book, Genuine Fraud just came out. I was lucky enough to get an ARC and have read it already and WOW it’s really good! You can check out my review here. I’ve been reading a lot of mysteries and thrillers this summer, and most all of them have been fabulous. I’ve discovered some great new authors whose books give me a similar feel to E. Lockhart’s incredible storytelling abilities. So if you’re looking for your next edge-of-your-seat read after being left shocked by this book, you’ve come to the right place!

Note: This post was written before the actual end of August! When you’re reading this it’ll already be September 1st, and I’ll be in crazy mode packing to leave for school.
August was a wonderful month, but busy nonetheless. I’m mentally and physically preparing myself to head back to school (and reality), packing, and trying to enjoy the very last bits of my summer. This summer actually carries a lot of weight for me because, if all goes well, this will have been my last full summer at home, ever. I’m an adult, people! And adults get internships, which is my goal for next year, and every year after that until I get a job. But let’s not move too quickly into the future!
Life & Everything Else:
As I just said, I’ve been really busy prepping for back to school. My month really only consisted of shopping, reading, blogging, packing and shopping some more! I did get to spend some time with friends before they went back to their schools.
I’ve been keeping up with my summer TV shows: The Bold Type, Younger, and Teen Wolf. I’ve been listening to TSwift’s new single on repeat (please don’t judge). I’m enjoying watching the U.S. Open, but am sad that Andy Murray had to withdrawal. Yet, there’s still Rafa and Federer! I’m also thrilled that Maria Sharapova got the luck of the draw, and is back competing!
Read & Reviewed:
I read 8 books in total, this month. 5 physical books, and 3 eBooks. Not bad!
