August Wrap-Up & September TBR

JULY WRAP UP

August is over which means it’s *almost* Fall, AKA the best time of the year! August was a great reading month for us – we especially loved City of Brass, Mirage and Dance of Thieves! Plus, we delved into Raven Boys and gave the Lunar Chronicles another chance. We finally gave up on Queens of Innis Lear and are happier for it. Outside our book lives, Jess camped on the beach and Teagan in Nevada and we both spent wayyyyy too much money on books.

Top Ten Tuesday | Books Set in Boarding Schools

Book Tag Header (9)

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.
