August ’17 Haul & Wrap-up

Another month has passed, and you know what that means… time for a haul and wrap-up post! I had a pretty decent reading month, and I stuck to my book ban fairly well! Though I did splurge on a few purchases, most of this month’s new additions to my shelves were given to me as ARCs. (Yay!)

As you may have noticed, I read a lot of graphic novels this month! Rather than clutter your emails and WordPress Reader with a ton of separate reviews, I’ll be doing a few multi-mini-review posts during September to cover those. 😊

(Also, you may have noticed that I put The Dream Thieves in the photo, but not in the list… That’s because I took the photo a few days ago, and thought for sure I’d have finished the book by the time I posted this. Nahhhh.)
Average rating for the month: 4.0/5
Percentage of August TBR completed: 43% (ouch!)

Now, on to the hauls…

    Your reading accomplishments continue to inspire and amaze me! I spent a long time last night outlining a thorough schedule for September so hopefully that helps me hit some of these higher reading goals! Also as for your physical ARCs are those won from GR/sent from Netgalley or do you go to the publishers directly? I’d love to learn how to maximize my physical ARCs because I prefer print over my kindle ARCs….that’s not to say that I’m not over the moon about getting digi ARCs too! =D Thanks again for continuing to guide me into this crazy book community!

      This was a very good month for print ARCs for me! I usually only average a couple per month so August was definitely a surprise and I think I will slow down on requesting and accepting the ones offered to me for the next few months so I can work on my released TBR books, too. 🙂 Thank you!
