Let’s just agree to ignore the fact that there was no August Wrap Up. Honestly – not a lot happened in August except that the two of us got shipped to the Kimberley for a rural immersion experience – and immerse ourselves we did. We roasted marshmallows on a campfire built using our own bare hands (jks we wore gloves – s’mores are great but #safetyfirst,) made a circle of love with our camping pods (which later expanded into a rectangle of love,) went to the Derby Rodeo, and of course – ate at least one ice cream a day (it’s called thermoregulation, look it up.)
Shoutout to our friend Nishita who is an innocent bystander in these photos (yep there is an Anisha and a Nishita in our year – and it causes Nish to have a daily identity crisis)
We also had our Med Ball, where we all dressed to the nines and pretended we hadn’t seen everyone looking like cranky swamp trolls just a few weeks earlier.
As for September, all that happened was that we had 4 assignments due plus a bunch of placements requiring us to be awake at obscene hours.
On the bright side – we got to see Troye Sivan live!! He was an absolute ANGEL.
Note: I was on a re-reading BENDER (due to high stress levels) so most of these are technically rereads but they count okay? Okay.
Opal, Origin & Opposition (The Lux series #3, #4, #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout – reread: ★★★★★ (series overall)
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkins – reread: ★★★★★
The Book Of The Year 2018 by No Such Thing As A Fish: ★★★★
HP & the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling: ★★★★★
The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats & Piracy by Mackenzi Lee: ★★★★★
Again, But Better by Christine Riccio: ★★
I’m planning on posting reviews/discussions about all of these except Harry Potter (I had a few other juicy reviews planned but they can wait – I need to spill the tea about my September reads)
- Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews returned from her hiatus!
- Olivia @ Purely Olivia described 10 levels of HP obsession
- Nyx @ Drizzle & Hurricane books talked about 10 NA books she’s dying to read (turns out NA isn’t just #sexytimes?!)
- Siobhan @ Novelties discusses embracing hiatuses and we couldn’t agree more! (definitely not just saying this because we’re planning to disappear during exam season lel)
- Aimee @ Aimee, Always wrote a guest post on Shut Up, Shealea about 3 Chinese myths she’d loved to see as YA books
- Xandra @ Starry Sky Books shares things she should’ve known as a new blogger (she also just celebrated her first blogiversary, so definitely go shower her with love and virtual hugs!)
- Rain @ The Withering posted about weird things she does as a reader and we grew an extra ab each from laughing
We are entering the Endgame regarding exams so we may be a little absent for a while, but we promise to be back with many more fun posts as soon as we can!
Hope you all had a fantastic September!
