A Bookish Cocktail

I have had a majorly good reading month for August! I’m incredibly proud so I do apologise if I sound hysterical…


So why did I have such a good reading month? Well, I travelled to Mexico which is a 9 hour flight so that’s some seriously good reading time there. Then I spent 2 weeks in the sun, by the pool, tanning and reading. Annnndddd yet another 9 hour flight home. HEY PRESTO! You have a majorly good bookish cocktail!


Here is a rundown of what I read during August and how I rated it:

This Savage Song by V.E Schwab – ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up!

What I Couldn’t Tell You by Faye Bird – ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up!

Nothing Tastes As Good by Claire Hennessy – ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up!

What’s A Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne –ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! 

The Yellow Room by Jess Vallance – ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up! ReadORama Wrap-up!

It’s safe to say I had a great reading month with all 4/5 Moo reads! WOO!



Whilst I was away I acquired many books from Bonnier/Hot Key Publishing who are truly AMAY people by the way. Seriously so generous and thoughtful! I also bought more books because I simply can’t help myself AND loaned a library book. Yes I know I have a problem, maybe I should set up my own BookAHolic Anonymous group…

Anyway, here is a list of the beauties I acquired:

ReadORama Wrap-up! Cherry – Lindsey Rosin

ReadORama Wrap-up! Lungdon – Edward Carey

ReadORama Wrap-up! Mother Tongue – Julie Mayhew

ReadORama Wrap-up! Real Live Boyfriends – E. Lockhart

ReadORama Wrap-up! The Treasure Map of Boys – E. Lockhart

ReadORama Wrap-up! Cell 7 – Kerry Drewery (*KLAXON* Book Club Pick of the Month)

ReadORama Wrap-up! Heap House – Edward Carey (2nd copy…whoops!)

ReadORama Wrap-up! Boy in the Tower – Polly Ho-Yen

ReadORama Wrap-up! Heart Shaped Bruise – Tanya Byrne

ReadORama Wrap-up! After You – Jojo Moyes

ReadORama Wrap-up! All the Light We Cannot See – Anthony Doerr (*KLAXON 2* Book Club Pick of the Month)

Wow. I really do need help…

Hope you can join us this month 🙂Agony Aunt Mel
