Month in Review: August 2021

The summer’s officially over but I’m glad it looks like the sun will be hanging around a little longer. I didn’t end up finishing my summer reading list but I have been getting to a lot of ARCs and anticipated reads. Also, I hit 500 posts this month!

WWW Wednesday: August 25, 2021

I’ve been reading lots and reviewing very little so how about a reading check-in?

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words, and asks three important questions:

Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Places to Read

Happy Tuesday, friends! I still have many reviews to catch up on but as I gather my thoughts and try to find some own voices’ reviews to shout out, how about some bookish memes?

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, and each week there’s a prompt for you to use in building your own bookish top ten list.

Today’s topic is a fun one about where we love to read! Some of these are better favourites than others but really I’ll read anywhere!
