August Favourites


So instead of doing a monthly wrap up, I’m going to share my favourites from this month with you (which I think, is way more interesting). I had a really good month of August, so I’m excited to share with you all of the things I did/bought/watched etc. Hopefully I’ll make this a monthly thing, but I’m so rubbish at keeping up with things (R.I.P Top Five Friday...) so I might forget (not making any promises here...)

1. I got a kitten!
This is definitely the best thing that happened this month. After my cat George passed away in March, I’ve been really missing my pet, so getting a new kitten was such a good idea. He’s called Sebastian, we got him on 22nd August, and he’s 6 months old. We think he’s a Short-haired British Blue too, but we can’t be sure. I absolutely adore him!

2. Being adventurous:
I’ve been doing lots of adventure activities in August too (though I do every month). For the first 5 days of the month, I was camping in France (also in July I was away, which explains my sudden hiatus). I had an amazing time, and loved being able to get away from everything.
On 31st August, I went to Go Ape, which is an adventure course set in the treetops (just Google it to find out more). I really enjoyed that too, though I got very dirty!

3. Music I’ve been loving...
Halsey released her album on 28th August, so I’ve been listening to it on repeat ever since then. It’s fair to say I’m definitely in love with Badlands!
Atlas Genius also released their debut album - Inanimate Objects - on the same day, so I’ve really been enjoying that to. It’s a really nice record to listen to when reading.

4. On the blog
In August, I completely changed my blog’s design. I’m super happy with it, as it’s professional, yet I think it’s cute and girly too. I also made a blog button to match (which you can see on the sidebar), so you can grab it to put on your blog. I designed the button myself (the image is from Freepik), and I’m actually quite proud of myself!
I also did some reviews:
And a tag and got nominated for some (thankyou!):

5. Monthly haul
This month I bought some really cool things, but my favourite purchase was a book of cute sticky-notes (pictured on the left). I think they will be really handy for school work, and I can tab my books with them too. They were such a bargain - only £2 for everything!
I also bought some books (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Landline, and The Good Luck of Right Now), and pre-ordered Carry on and Queen of Shadows.

6. A good reading month
This month I managed to read 13 books, which I’m quite pleased with! I read 8 e-books:
1. Grasshopper Jungle - 3/5
3. An Ember in the Ashes - 4/5
4. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (re-read) - 5/5
5. Becoming Death - 3.5/5
6. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock (re-read) - 5/5
8. Maybe Someday - 4/5
And 5 library books:
1. Vicious - 4/5
4. Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy #5) - 4/5
5. Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy #6) - 5/5
My favourite read of the month was Shadow Kiss (excluding re-reads).
