Month in Review: August 2015

month in review done

I had a fantastic reading month!! 16 books!!! (well 17, but that was a reread) Last month I read 14 books and was pretty much gobsmacked and then this month 17!!!! WHAT IS THIS??? I’ve been bitten by the radioactive spider who’s turned me into a ninja fast reader! Which is actually really weird, considering last month I was on holidays and this month I’m at uni. Kinda worrying haha! I am positive next month will be a pretty slow reading month, I have huge 30%-40% assignments due towards the end of the month and I better be doing them instead of reading!!!

Today I decided to try out a new Month in Review layout – I saw something similar last month on Its All About BooksΒ and I liked how neat it was, so I thought I’d give it a try πŸ™‚ All book covers are linked to my review – except for the book in my upcoming reviews section on the side πŸ™‚

Goodreads challenge progress:

61/52 book!! (119%) I finished my goodreads challenge!!! Like 4 months early!! So now I know next year to put the challenge way high!

Pages read:

5,601 this month | 21,418 this year <– Shit, I read more then a 1/4 of all the pages I’ve read this year, this month! (That number doesn’t include my reread of Trial by Fire)

Other Blog Stuff:Β 

Because I’m a wizard, I’ve learnt how to change the font on my blog posts! (Only took like 11 months of having this blog but whatever). See this is all the new font, and this is the old font! (I can also change the colour of the font, but I haven’t found a reason to do that yet? Probably never will, just can’t be bothered lol.) Look at me writing code! Told you, a wizard!

Also, to catch up on all the reviews I had to post I was behind at the start of August I did two Mini Reviews posts this month – which is new to me! I’ll probably use that form of reviewing more in the future. This month was also BookTubeAThon and Bout of Books 14, both of which I had a pretty successful reading weeks! I actually did a tag I was tag for this month!! YAY me!! It was The Sunshine Blogger Award. At the start of the month, I was like to myself, I’m going to do every tag, I get tagged to do this month, but did I do it?? NO! Why, you ask? Cause I suck.

I did 3 of the Top Ten Tuesdays this month, they where on Fairytales I Want To Read, Most Read Authors, and Auto-Buy Authors. I found it very interesting that my stats for last week were much lower then usual, and the only different thing was that I didn’t do the TTT. I also I had three TBR Jar Draws this month (cause there where 5 Monday’s this month), I broke my own rules, though, and didn’t read one of them. I talked about my August Book Haul – where I put myself onΒ book buying banΒ for September and talked about all the September Releases that look awesome!!Β 

How was everyone else’s month?? Let me know!!

    Yay for the pretty star rating layout! πŸ˜‰ I loved Throne Of Glass as well and can’t wait to get a copy of Queen Of Shadows. Various other titles are on my TBR as well! Looks like you had a great month! πŸ˜€
