Monthly Round-Up: August

The month of August has come and gone, and with its passing comes the inevitable round up post. This is probably going to be a short one, though, because I read about 6 books and am very annoyed about it because I have had all this time off and I have done practically nothing with it.

Books read:

Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix by Queen J.K
Cruel Summer by James Dawson
Briar Rose by Jana Oliver
Soul Storm by Kate Harrison
Vivian Versus the Apocalypse by Katie Coyle
United We Spy by Ally Carter

Book of the month:
Now this is a really hard decision, because even though I didn't read that much, pretty much everything that I read was really good. I think I'm going to have to pick two...

United We Spy by Ally Carter (which is the only book you are going to hear me talk about for the rest of this week - look out for a review on Thursday and my blog tour post on Friday)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (which is fab and my second favourite and I don't know why I put it off for so long (that's a lie, I do, I'm just afraid of long books though after reading this, not so much.))

Books reviewed:

Ocean of Secrets by Aimee Friedman
Order of the Phoenix by J K Rowling
Cruel Summer by James Dawson
Soul Storm by Kate Harrison
Antigoddess by Kendare Blake

I also expressed my opinion about the recent film adaptation of Cassandra Clare's City of Bones here which you can check out if you want to and haven't already.

Other stuff I got up to this month: 
My birthday! That was a thing that happened. I can now legally drive in the UK and everything! Not that I'm going to.
LeakyCon London! That was another thing that happened (and in all honesty, it was better than my birthday). It was SO MUCH FUN guys. I was really worried that I wouldn't enjoy it but I was completely wrong and the next time that they do one in the UK, I will leap at the chance to go. It was my first proper convention that didn't take place in a shopping center or a football grounds so it was a pretty big moment, and if all conventions are like Leaky then I want to go to them ALL (though sadly, I know that they are not.)
I also renewed my Netflix subscription. Netflix, you are my one true love, and your original series aren't half as bad as I thought that they'd be (Orange is the New Black is really good).

So, that was pretty much literally all I did this August apart from stress about personal statments and Uni! How was your month?

  1. Yaaay HP! I like OotP a lot too, especially the Rita Skeeter interview :P. And I loved United We Spy, so incredibly sad the series has ended. I've been reading it for years! And so jealous you got to go to LeakyCon! Hope personal statement stuff has been going well - good luck with it all! :)
