Happy first of September! 🍂
And a special happy back to Hogwarts to all the Potterheads. ⚡️☺️💞
It’s been hailing all day, and all I want to do is snuggle up in my bed, and never leave again.
I took it upon me to read a lot of books in August, because I’m back to being a full-time student this month (yes, my anxiety is sky-high just thinking about it 😭), and even though my course load isn’t going to be as heavy as it’ll be in the following months*, I definitely won’t have as much time to read as I had during the summer.
*I already see myself going MIA for the rest of the year after September, blogging-wise.
BUT LET’S FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE.

- Malanie and Elizabeth created a wonderful tag called Blogging Buddies and Books, which is all about spreading the blogger love, and I absolutely adore it.
- Marty wrote an incredibly helpful post that tells you everything you should know about ARCs, and if you’re an INTL blogger like I am, you should definitely check it out! 🙂
- Aimee compiled a list featuring her most anticipated Young Adult book releases in September, and got me so excited about so many of them. It was also her birthday this month, so send some love her way! 💗
- Sophie invited us all to join the O.W.L.s read-a-thon, and my Harry Potter loving self actually decided to do it?? Even though I’m usually not a fan of read-a-thons?? (I’m going to let you in on which books I’m planning on reading for it sometime next week! 😊)
How was your August? 💗
Any books you are excited about reading in September?
(Anyone want to reassure me that I’m not alone in feeling disproportionate-to-the-situation-dread at the prospect of starting uni??)
What’s one thing that made you happy today?
(Let’s spread some positivity together!!)
