August ’18 Wrap Up & Book Haul

IMG_6537Hello friends! It’s that time of the month again where I do my monthly wrap up! Let’s se what happened this month, reading wise, and just my general monthly update.

With only having one book on my TBR this month, I kept my August TBR super short.. The book on my TBR for this August was Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3) by Sarah J. Maas. I’m trying to read at least one Throne of Glass book a month until Kingdom of Ash is published, in October. And I’m fallin’ behind!

What I read:

  • The Shadow Minds Journal by Kia Carrington-Russell — ★★★★’s
  • Crystallum (The Primordial Principles, #1) by Laney McMann — ★★★★★’s
  • Hunted by Meagan Spooner — ★★★’s
  • Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3) by Sarah J. Maas — ★★★★’s
  • Seventh Born (The Witching Academy, #1) by Monica Sanz — ★★★★’s
  • Taunt (Ava Delaney, #2) by Claire Farrell — ★★★’s
  • Since Drew by J. Nathan — ★★★’s


Manga I read:

  • Kiss of the Rose Princess Volume 02, by Aya Shouoto — ★★★’s
  • The Water Dragon Bride Volume 05, by Rei Toma — ★★★★’s
  • Karneval Omnibus 04, by Touya Mikanagi — ★★★★★’s
  • Kiss of the Rose Princess Volume 03, by Aya Shouoto — ★★★’s
  • Kiss of the Rose Princess Volume 04, by Aya Shouoto — ★★★★’s
  • Kiss of the Rose Princess Volume 05, by Aya Shouoto —  ★★★’s
  • Black Butler Volume 01, by Yana Toboso — ★★★’s


Manga Review:

These are the manga I reviewed this month! He’s My Only Vampire was a post that had been scheduled for a while and I’m glad that I had my thoughts on the last 3 volumes all in one post. Doing so makes me feel like there’s a cleaner ending, and I could move onto other manga/series.


Looking back on this month, I actually posted quite a bit! I guess I did a lot of preparation for when my extended family arrived. When they were here, I barely did anything reading or blogging related.

August Journal

IMG_663705; I’ve been a cross stitching fiend! I cross stitched a cute bee for my friend, but I’m going to be making one for my sister and then one for myself as well. And since I can’t read and cross stitch at the same time, I’ve been listening to podcasts! I’ve been listening to Lore recently and my goal is to catch up to the most current podcast so I’m all up to date, and then I can move on to listening to another podcast. 🙂

14; AHH!!! I’m getting some Zero Repeat Forever loot from an author whose book I adore!

23; My sister has me playing the Mobile version of Maple Story, so I haven’t been able to concentrate on reading anything lately. Aghhh

Thank you for stopping by!

How was your August?

Happy Reading!
