August Flashback

I can't believe it is already September and the summer is over! Sonehow this summer just flew over my head and I didn't read as much out in the sun, sunbathing as I usually do (maybe the horrible weather was accountable for that too).

I'm maybe one of the weird people because actually I like autumn. I always loved to start school again, shop for school supplies and the thrill of new classes! And autumn fashion is way better than summer, you have much more choices of what to wear :-) So if it is a sunny and warm autumn, then I couldn't be happier!

But before that let's see what happened in August:

Book I liked the best this month:  Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James! It was such a powerful emotional read and was woven masterfully, I loved every minute of it. Brilliant!

Book Bloggers Anonymous:

In August the BBA discussed The Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy, the 1st book in the Accidentally series. 


I participated in my second and third Read-a-Thon! One of them was the Read Your Own Books Read-a-Thon organised by Monica and the other The From Dusk 'Til Dawn Read-a-Thon organised by Jenn. Though I didn't read as much as planned, it was a lot of fun and I want to do more Read-a-Thons! :-D


I have received again some awards in August, they are still waiting for me to do a mega award post and announce who I want to pass this on to. I want to thank you to all those of you have given me an award, I really appreciate them!! :-) Thank you!
