Hello beautiful people!
August has been a CRAZY month! Not only have I been trying to get better at blogging and reading (which I think I’m doing pretty good so far), but I’ve also been in the midst of moving to my first home (#adulting)! I’ll probably spam some photos on here later for those interested he-he!
But that’s enough about my mundane life…let’s get into the good stuff!
I DO have a book blog question for you guys…which is at the bottom of this post…so you can skip to their if you’d like.
The Boxcar Baby (Book One) by J.L. Mulvihill
“With the main heroine being the adventure taking Boxcar Baby herself, J.L. Mulvihill’s The Boxcar Baby follows AB’Gale as she desperately seeks to find her papa and set things back in order … An exhilarating and wild read, Mulvihill’s opener to the Steel Roots series will have readers grasping for more!”
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (Book One) by Jenny Han
“In the first instalment of a glorious young adult love story, Jenny Han’s To All the Boys I Loved Before takes readers on a romantic getaway full of bumps and twists along the way … A breathtaking story with both drama and humour, Han leaves readers with an overbearing desire to seek their own tremendous and magical love story.”
P.S. I Still Love You (Book Two) by Jenny Han
“Just as quirky and comical as its predecessor, Jenny Han’s P.S. I Still Love You is a fantastic sequel to this thrilling and adorable YA romance trilogy … Wonderfully written and hard to put down, P.S. I Still Love You beautifully and accurately illustrates what it’s like to be young, in love, and searching for ones place in the world during those essential high school years.”
Always and Forever, Lara Jean (Book Three) by Jenny Han
“In the final installment of Han’s beautifully put-together love story, Always and Forever, Lara Jean takes readers on an emotional roller coaster as this unforgettable coming of age trilogy comes to a close … A breathtakingly passionate story that’s nearly impossible to put down, Han sheds light in the most romantic way what it’s like to transition from high school to young adulthood.”
There are a number of bloggers who do a “shout out” section in their wrap ups, where they basically state some of their favourite blog posts and reviews during the month from other bloggers. I absolutely love this idea, so I’m deciding to give it a go!

I did not request any NetGalley Books during August 2018.
This is DEFINITELY an improvement, since I was about 12 or 14 books behind previously. I still think I can read 50 books in 2018, so I’m not changing my goal just yet.
Honestly, there aren’t many updates. I will be bringing back the Bullet Journal posts, but it’s been really hard with the moving situation right now. If I post Septembers, it will definitely be last minute. For October, I’m hoping to publish the post a couple days before the end of September.
I have also been considering to make my own book tag; there’s this idea I’ve had for a while, but I want to make sure it actually works out well.
Lastly…I need all of your help!
I’m getting fairly close to 500 followers on WordPress and 1,000 followers through WordPress and Twitter. Thus, I REALLY want to do a giveaway. I was either going to do this through the Book Depository or giveaway books I have; they’re basically in brand new quality. So…how do you go about doing this? Additionally, I have some concerns regarding the legality of book giveaways. For those of you in Canada, do you happen to know of anything regarding giveaways that I would need to know in the legal aspect?
Any help would be appreciated!
