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!

Shouting through clown horns and eating an abundance of cheese in…What’s A Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne

What's g girl gotta do

Considering how excited I was to get this book early (Waterstones started selling it before release date, I didn’t have an ARC), it’s a bit ironic that I started actually reading it ON the release day.

Either way, I have it and I’ve read it so here we are. 

spoiler free

Let’s talk about What’s A Girl Gotta Do?

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. 

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

The Wonderful People I Will Keep Throwing Money At For Their Books… My Auto-Buy Authors!

auto buy authors

I think every bookworm has their auto-buy authors.

The authors where no matter what they publish, you WILL be buying it. The authors where you’re constantly waiting for any news of upcoming books. The authors where they could write out their shopping list, and you’d find it enthralling.

Granted, auto-buy authors is kind of a new concept to me. I knew about them, but didn’t think I had any of my own. Purely because I have this thing where it takes me forever to continue series, so most of the time I never have the entire collection of books.

But then I realized…there are a few.

Even though there’s only 5 here, I’ll split this into two sections:

– I own all their books so far & eagerly waiting for the next

Pretty self explanatory. Most of the time, these are ongoing series, or an upcoming release is not yet out.

– Permanent *grabby hands* at the books I intend on buying

I don’t yet own all the books these authors have published, but I fully intend on buying them to get the whole collection.

So who are my auto-buy authors? Let’s find out!
