What Happened This Month
My July was absolutely hectic. Working three jobs definitely took its toll on me, since I worked every single day of August except for three days that I booked off from all of the jobs. I celebrated my birthday on August 10th, and now I'm officially 21. Now I can finally drink alcohol in the states when I go down there. The weekend of my birthday, me and few close friends went out to my best friend's cabin, and we had a lovely weekend filled with swimming, kayaking, and of course partying. Now with school just around the corner, I've handed in my resignations to all jobs except for my favourite, and I'm so happy to get a few days of freedom before I go back to university. How was your August?

Thanks so much Amy! And wow I didn't even notice. No wonder it was a good month :)Delete
You are smashing your reading challenges! That's awesome. :D Happy to see you gave 4 stars to Fireblood! I'm hopefully going to read it before the years end. :) My August was pretty good, but hectic. I started university on the 19th, so that's been my life. It's my first year too, so it's a lot to get used to! But I'm finding my groove. :)
Hope you have another awesome reading month! And hopefully a less stressful one. :)
Genni @ Ready, Set, Read!
Best of luck on your first year. Its definitely the most challenging year, but once you get into it you'll be a pro.Delete
Thanks for visiting Genni :)
Wow! Three jobs! Glad you are taking a much needed break!ReplyDelete
Here’s my August Monthly Wrap Up!
Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog
I really want to read My Lady Jane and Frostblood! I'm glad you enjoyed them both. I had an awesome August. The best books I read this month were Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. Great mystery book, I would highly recommend it!ReplyDelete
I started re-reading HP but I didn't have enough time to finish all the books this summer. Maybe over Christmas break I will :)Delete
Thanks for visiting Sophie

Here's my Weekly Recap!
It was fantastic! Definitely recommend that one.Delete
I had three jobs at one point in college. It is a lot to manage and it gets tiring. I'm glad you had a few days to yourself and you've got a reprieve coming up with school.ReplyDelete
I'm so glad someone understands!! It definitely gets exhausting quickly. Good think it was only for the summer.Delete
Thanks for visiting Charlie
Oh wow, 3 jobs. I can't even imagine how you managed all of that and still read and everything else. I hope you had a great birthday August 10th. :DReplyDelete
Thank you so much. You're so kind :)Delete
Hope 21 is a fantastic year for you!! :-)ReplyDelete

September is flying by! I'm late to comment--your August was amazing and you're doing so well on your challenges. Three jobs and still finding time to read and blog is quite an accomplishment. I hope your school year goes well. Happy 21st!!ReplyDelete
