August Wrap-Up

And … my summer holiday is over! I did make the most of it, and it was exactly what I needed – lots of relaxation, reading and seeing family. But the rowing machine that was going to help me get fit – not so much! I had my first day with my new Year 6 class on Friday and it was so brilliant to be back with this Year group. We’re heading off on a residential later this month which I’m very excited about as I used to love this one when I was last in Year 6.

Books I’ve read:

I’ve read 12 books this month, all physical copies. I’ve written and posted reviews for 7 of the books I’ve read. I really enjoyed all of these books but the ones that really stood out for me were Fireborn, Hide and Seek and The Crackledawn Dragon.


My Feedback Ratio is now at 97%. I have two books to read on my NetGalley Shelf, The Shadows of Rookhaven and Locked Out Lily both released on 30th September.

Books sent by publishers:

I have been lucky enough to have been sent these books by publishers this month.

Books I’ve bought:

I’ve bought 6 books in August.

How has your month been? Have you read any of these?

  1. I still haven’t got round to reading Crackledawn Dragon and must get hold of that one. I did enjoy The Shadows of Rookhaven though. Well done for getting your Net Galley feedback so high.

    1. I hope you get a chance to read The Crackledawn Dragon – a hug in a book! I ‘m so looking forward to reading Shadows of Rookhaven. It’s so tempting to request books on NetGalley – I’ve had to be very strict with myself!


  2. I’m so glad you had a relaxing and restorative holiday (and that the rowing machine was neglected – holidays are not for rowing machines 😂)
    Some awesome books here – lots I’ve read and loved too (Crackledawn, Clock of Stars…) and plenty more I’m excited for (Fireborn, Dead Man’s Pass.. .)


    1. Thank you – back at school and you’d never think you were away. My class are lovely and it’s great being back in Year 6. I’m so looking forward to the next Clock of Stars book which I think is out in October – the cover if gorgeous.
