Hallelujah! August is over! I have said it before, and I’ll say it again, I don’t “do” summer. I don’t like the heat. I don’t like the beach. I am not a fan. This August Wrap Up post is potentially my favourite post because that means we are closer to my favourite season, the season that rules them all- FALLLLL!
Pumpkin everything. Boots. Sweaters. Yes. Please.
This month, I felt like I had a really terrible month for reading. I didn’t feel like I was reading a whole ton. I had my wedding shower, was feeling pretty sick, and had to deal with a flood in my basement. But, apparently, I was mistaken because I read 31 books this month. Not my best month but not my worst month either!
Keep reading to see which books I read, which books I loved, which books I liked and which books I had to add to my DNF pile.

Happy last day of July!
I really struggle in the summer; I am not a fan of the heat so I really spend most of July complaining and wishing Bath and Body Works would put out their fall candle selection.
I felt like I was incredibly busy this month and not doing much reading at all so I was surprised when I counted up my July titles and realized I managed to get 32 titles read!
I also hit my Goodreads Reading Challenge Goal! I have read 213 books so far this year and that ain’t too shabby!
Keep reading to see what books I read this month…there were quite a few gems!

Well I blinked, June is over and summer is officially here! Anyone who works in education or an
Anyone who works in education or an education-related field waits for June with bated breath! It always feels like there is not enough time and yet, time moves at a snail’s pace! I work in an alternative school setting, so I work through the summer, but it is absolutely more relaxed and I am looking forward to the lighter weight load before I transition back into the public school system in September!
Needless to say, June was an absolutely crazy month for me personally, but, I must say, I had a seriously mediocre month for reading.
With life in the way and a full blown reading slump that plagued me for almost two weeks, I finished June with 25 titles read.

May has come and gone and I have had another incredibly busy reading month. I read some amazing books, took part in some blog tours and added about seven million books to my TBR pile.
This month I read thirty-seven titles. I was hoping to finish the two I am currently reading to start June fresh, but such is life!
Keep reading to see what I read this month and to see will be coming up on Clues and Reviews!

Well, folks, I blinked and here we are at the end of April!
I know I say this every month, but seriously, time is flying!
I don’t know about you, but I am very much looking forward to May and the start of some warmer weather; it’s been just awful here lately (lots of rain and cold weather) and although I like the weather that forces me inside to read, I’d love to be able to curl up on my deck with a good book and nice breeze!
I read 31 books this month, keeping up with my book-a-day habit but a little less than last month. I was busy. What can ya do??!
Keep reading to see my April wrap up!

March was an incredibly busy month for me, both personally and on the blog!
I finalized a bunch of plans for my wedding, celebrated multiple birthdays (including my own!) and transitioned into some new routines.
I participated in multiple blog tours, completed several buddy reads with #cjsreads and was able to connect with some pretty amazing authors for Q&As.
While all this was going on, I managed to read thirty-five books! THIRTY-FIVE.
Needless to say people, I think I need a new hobby.

February is typically my least favourite month of the year; it always seems to go by too slowly. Luckily for me, I had a whole bunch of books this month to keep me busy! This month, I was able to read 28 books.

Can you believe it is the end of January? This month seemed to fly by; this first month of 2017 was extremely exciting. I kicked off #cjsreads2017 with Jessica and Chandra, have started putting together a Meet the Blogger series, signed up for some blog tours, have been planning my wedding and I even had time to squeeze in 27 books (I know, I know…I’m slacking!)

With December coming to an end, it is time for my monthly round-up! I feel like I always open these posts in shock of how it is the end of the month but I truly cannot believe that it’s already the end of December (and the end of 2016)! Where did the time go?!
I got through 27 books this month; I feel like that is fair, especially since I was combating with all the hustle and bustle of Christmas.
