August Wrap-Up 2017

Hello beautiful people!

I’ve had a thought…since I apparently don’t follow my TBR list, I’m changing these posts to monthly wrap ups only. After browsing through some other bloggers’ wrap ups, this seems to be a trend and a more informative type of post. Honestly, I tend to change my mind constantly on what I want to read so the whole TBR part is literally a waste of time…he-he.

Monthly Wrap Ups will now include:

  • Books I’ve Read and Reviews I’ve Posted
  • Books I’ve Purchased
  • Books I’ve Received
  • Book Club Theme and Pick
  • Goodreads Reading Challenge Update
  • Bookmark Your Thoughts Blog Updates
Note: All pictures and links either connect to my book reviews or the Goodreads page.

Books I’ve Read and Reviews I Posted




Visions (Cainsville #2) by Kelley Armstrong
The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
A Tale of Two Daddies by Vanita Oelschlager, Kristin Blackwood (illustrator), Mike Blanc (illustrator)
Ab’Asanas by Morgan Haley

Books I’ve Purchased


Books I’ve Received


Book Club Theme and Pick

The theme for August 2017 was non-human perspective and I chose George Orwell’s Animal Farm. Well, this month was basically CRAZY for the entire book club. Since people were leaving and going on vacation and all sorts of other shenanigans, we had to move it to the middle of the month rather than the end. Thus, practically no one actually finished this months theme. We still met up and basically just talked about books we were currently reading or what we read last month. Since Animal Farm still works for the theme of September, I’m going to read it then instead!

Goodreads Reading Challenge Update

Bookmark Your Thoughts Blog Updates

You may have noticed that I stopped posting Featured Images with my blog posts. That’s because I’m currently working with the lovely individual who created all the other “Bookmark Your Thoughts” images to have new Featured Images that will match my header and signature and the like. I like consistency, so I’m super excited for this!

Hopefully, this layout works MUCH better than the previous one. Please let me know what you think and if there are things I should add.

Happy Reading!

    1. Thank you haha. Im a tad behind. That’s amazing! I really like Ab’Asanas by Morgan Haley (the Southern Yogi) for core and inversion work. Beginners are definitely able to do it. I also like #letsstartyoga by Jessica Olie, who teaches the basics of flows and how to create your own! I’m about to read another I received from NetGalley so I’ll let you know that one! ALO yoga is awesome for YouTube classes 😆. Sorry…I can talk forever about both books and yoga.

      1. I agree about how Youtube is awesome for yoga, I go there all the time! Which is why I find it kinda hard to maybe learn poses from non-moving pictures from books. I might be more interested in learning more about the theory or history of the sport itself. But thank you for the recs!

  1. It takes forever to figure out a format. I’ve been recapping for a few years now and things come and go that I include. I do like your inclusion of photos! I always feel I never have enough book covers in mine.

    1. Thank you! I feel you…I’m always looking to make my posts more informative and easier to follow. It’s also hard since recently I’ve been wanting to update my theme…but I’d have to upgrade…and that costs money…lol. I like the photos too!! I tried to not go crazy…but I kind of did hehe.
