Hey guys, it’s Lois. August has been another hectic month! I know this wrap-up is a little late but I have been so busy I have only just got round to writing this. Let’s get on with the wrap-up.
This month in terms of reading wasn’t as good as last month! I feel that because I have been so busy I haven’t been able to sit down with a book as often as I would have liked to. I have read 2 books this month, I wish I had read more!
This month I read, It’s Not Me It’s You by Stephanie Kate Strohm and Spontaneous by Aaron Starmer.
I am really behind on my reviews at the minute and plan on catching up with them this month. So, expect an awful lot of reviews on the blog this month.
August was another bad month for blog posts.I didn’t seem to have the time at all to post. I really hope to get back to posting everyday soon. Here are my top 5 posts from August!

6 Things You Don’t Know About Me
I am thinking of changing my reading goal down to 35 maybe even 30. I am getting more and more behind schedule every month. I must not read quick enough! I don’t want to push myself to reach that many books read because I feel that will take away from the joy of reading. Still 21 books is good for me when I have been in a lot of reading slumps this year!
I think I might have finally got a job! After months of attending interviews and hearing nothing back, emailing companies seeing if I can do some volunteering. I might have finally got myself a full-time job. I am starting 2 weeks trail this week and seeing how it goes from there. If it all goes well and I like the company and the company like me I will be a digital admin. I cannot tell you all how relieved I am to be finally on the route to a job!
August was also the month for meeting authors. I got to meet Simon James Green, Beth Garrod and Stephanie Kate Strohm. Not only that but I also got to interview them! I also got to meet E. Lockhart in August. I cannot believe I met so many authors in one month. In September I will be meeting Carrie Hope Fletcher which I am so excited about!
Also in the month of August I found out I was awarded a Merit in my Grade 8 acoustic guitar exam which I am really pleased with!
There you have it, August is over for another year! This year is going way too quick!
