Wrap Up | August 2019 + updates

There’s almost no point in me doing a wrap up for August because I completely fell out of the blogging and reading worlds. August truly turned out to be the month where time kind of ate itself; I remember preparing for World Con back at the start of August and then before I knew it the first day of September arrived?! I have a fairly good excuse in that preparations for and recovery from World Con turned out to be pretty all-consuming. That combined with a 5000-word report, a statistics exam and writing my 15,000-word dissertation meant I basically hadย zeroย time for anything else. I feel a lot less guilty now seeing how much I actually had to do in August written down…

August wasn’t just a complete non-event on the blogging front but I also barely read anything despite it being the NEWTs readathon. In total, I only managed to read 2.5 books before August was over which is kind of disappointing and also means I’m not behind on both my reading and my blogging ๐Ÿ˜ญ

World Con 2019 | Book Haul & TBR

World Con 2019 | Book Haul & TBR

It has been a super intense week and I am also just starting to recover from my epic trip to Dublin to attend World Con 2019. I set off for Dublin on Thursday morning, went straight from the airport to the con center and it was pretty non-stop from there until I got home on Monday evening (plus 2 days recovery). I want to do a proper event review over the weekend because there were honestly so many incredible highlights that I want share with you all but even the thought of going back over it so soon is exhausting!

For now though, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about BOOKS because that’s really what we’re all here for :’) I was very well behaved at World Con on account of a) financial constraints and b) not being able to afford to carry anything back to the UK so I thought it would be a good idea to combine a haul post with a post-World Con TBR. Of course there were so many panels with so many amazing recommendations so naturally my TBR list has grown exponentially. I hope you’re tempted to add them all to your TBR’s too ๐Ÿ˜‰
