NEWTs / August Wrap-Up

What was your favourite read this month?

September dawning on us means I am fully in the swing of ‘give me all the autumn vibes’, but also means its time for another wrap-up!

So over August, I participated in the NEWTs readathon set up by Book Roast. I’ve had an absolute blast, and one hell of a month of reading! So many good books were read – I’ve been on a complete roll, and I’m also all caught up on Godsgrave at last and ready for Darkdawn’s imminent release! Godsgrave was also probably my favourite read, and I’ve had such a book hangover from it.

My Reads

Nevernight | Jay Kristoff | ★★★★★

A re-read, I read this a few years ago, and I still absolutely adore it

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone | J K Rowling | ★★★★★

Also a reread, I listened to it by Stephen Fry this time and it was wonderful

Girls With Sharp Sticks | Suzanne Young | ★★★★

Not my usual thing, and I think going in completely blind helped, but a very engrossing read

Obsidio | Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | ★★★★★

Absolutely brilliant end to the series – I’m so sad it’s over though!

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban | J K Rowling | ★★★★★

This is actually the first time I’ve read this, it is my favourite film though, and it did not disappoint

Listen to the Wind | Susanne Dunlap | ★★★★

Wonderful NetGalley ARC – I’m looking forward to book two!

Godsgrave | Jay Kristoff | ★★★★★

I’ve held off on this due to hearing about an awful cliffhanger. I think this was better than Nevernight, and I NEED Darkdawn right now!

Northanger Abbey | Jane Austen | ★★★★★

Re-read as a buddy read – I enjoyed this more the second time around

Spellslinger | Sebastien de Castell | ★★★★★

This book was chosen by Gintare (Book Roast) and it was such a fun read!

The Steel Prince | V E Schwab | ★★★★★

Set in one of my favourite worlds, this was my first proper foray into Graphic Novels – I NEED MORE!

A Patchwork Family: Part 1 | Cathy Bramley | ★★★★★

The first part of a new book by Cathy Bramley – I enjoyed seeing some old characters!

About Me

Books and food enthusiast. I discovered a love for reading in my late teens, so you’ll see me catching up on older series quite often. I also love to travel around the UK, where I live, and picking up some crafty hobbies – I hope to share snippets of this amongst all the book content. Other interests include gaming, podcasts, drinking too much tea, and trying to personify autumn.
