This Month in Books: August 2015

ICON5

In August I continued my mission to get back on my feet, blogging and reading wise, and I’m getting there, just about. I concentrated on trying to get my outstanding review requests read, and then the same for Netgalley approvals. Therefore the month was a bit low on reviews, but I now have lots scheduled for this month already 🙂

I also went to Germany for a long (beer-festival-filled) weekend to visit my friend who has just moved back there. It was sooo good. Bamberg is lovely – highly recommend it.

August was also the month where I once again became obsessed with The Great British Bake Off, and I watched so much RuPaul’s Drag Race that I’m not sure how I got any reading done at all. So good!

Anyway, back to the blog round-up…
