August Wrap Up – The result of a month doing absolutely nothing

August wrap up

Okayy, this month did actually speed by for once. That’s not happened for a while. But this time it feels like I literally only just wrote my July Wrap Up…so strange.

I had a bit of a weird reading month. I felt like I didn’t read anything? But I very obviously did. I don’t know what August did to me.

As always, this is going to be a long post, so get comfy and enjoy!

July book haul – because a long month = a long haul

title

As I mentioned in my Wrap Up, July dragged for me. I felt like it went on forever. So when I came to write up this review and saw I had somehow accumulated this many books in July…well, I was quite surprised, because it felt like a lifetime ago.

I’m pretty sure I say that in a lot of hauls though. It just be the common cause of my buying.

Overview

I’ll put it simply. I got nine books in July. Though to be fair, I didn’t buy them all, so…I didn’t spend that much money.

AND in July I read 8 books, so I’ve only added to my TBR by one book. That’s pretty good going, if I do say so myself.

Can you guess any of the books from the picture?

Well, you don’t have to, because I’m about to show them all off screaming LOOK AT ALL THESE PRETTIES.Β 

Here are the books I got in the month of July!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child | A nostalgic SCRIPT book about a rather annoying child…and I loved it!

Cursed Child

How I survived to write this, I don’t know.

I loved the build up to this. Not so much the waiting, but the general feeling of hype from all Potterheads. We took over the world once again! Stay away, muggles.

While I didn’t go to a midnight launch party, I DID go and pick my preorder up on the day. As soon as I could. And they brought animals in! I held a snake, like the true Slytherin I am, but there was also an owl, tarantula, tortoises and toads πŸ˜€

Everything was incredible. It was such a magical day. And once I had my copy, had frolicked around with animals for a while, and had some dinner….I went right on home and devoured this book.

Let’s Talk:Cursed Child hopes, Fantastic Beasts movie and general wizarding wonders!

This week’s discussion is taking on a particular theme…

Harry Potter!!!

Since we’re only a mere few days away from the release of the Cursed Child book (EEEEKKKKKK!) I thought it’d only be fitting for this week’s chat to be about all things Harry Potter.

I didn’t quite know WHAT to write about, since there’s so much of the wizarding world to explore, so I did a poll on twitter…

harry potter topics

…and it basically showed that we can’t miss ANYTHING here today. So this will be a good old ramble about everything Harry Potter related.

Be prepared.Β 

I’ll warn you now: If you HAVEN’T read all the Harry Potter books, leave now. This will likely contain spoilers, and you probably won’t have a clue what’s going on with magic spells and wand properties etc etc.Β 

And now…

This is probably my longest discussion yet, so get comfy and let’s talk, Potterheads!

April Book Haul – So Much For That Book Buying Ban!

April haul

At the start of the month I said to myself “I’m on a book buying ban for April because I’ve gotten so many books since December.”

As time went on, I realized one of my most anticipated releases came out at the end of the month. So this went from no books to “I’ll make an exception for THAT ONE BOOK.”

And then April actually started and I ended up getting 6 books. And a half. Kind of (you’ll see what I mean).

So here’s my failed book buying ban – otherwise known as a haul!
