Best Bookstagram: I was terrible at instagram this month, so feast your eyes on this beauty from July

And that was my August! See ya in September! And maybe I'll find a way/the energy to review more than a couple books ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So August felt super short, right? Like just gone in a blink. I had a lot of family stuff going on, parties and canning and I started Secret Sister again, and I really just can't believe September is here. I'm watching you 2016. You're a suspicious year.

We usually do this as a separate round-up, but I felt like we were doing a little much this month, so I've decided to combine them with no outside input from J. <333 

Look at all these summer reads! We both covered 20 squares! Jess got three bingos (though I think she totally had like eight books she could have counted for white cover and brought that up to five.) And I got five for Bingo supremacy! Weather words. Who knew that would be the most impossible?

  1. I forgot to tell you! MyRyan saw The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet at B&N and bought it because I told him you gave it five (ok 4.5) stars. And he opened it to a random page and it made him laugh. <3

    1. YAY!! I want more and more people to find this. I think YourRyan will enjoy it v v much.
