Monthly Wrap-Up | August

Wrap-Up

Well, we must say goodbye to August and say hello to September!! I just hope autumn comes fast because I can’t stand this heart any longer! I miss the chilly weather and wearing a coat over my tops!! Yep, you can definitely tell I am an autumn person!

If you have been following my reading progresses then you have noticed that August was an okay month! I didn’t read everything I wanted but I read a few good books! So, I’m happy with the progress of this last month though I wish I have read more than only thee books but it’s better than none, right? Still, July was the best month so far for me!

Wrap-Up | August

  • Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet – Charlie N. Holmberg (3/5 cups) GR | TBD | Amazon
    • This was a strange book at first! I was expecting something a little bit different from the synopsis but it was still an enjoyable reading;
  • City of Fallen Angels [The Mortal Instruments #4] – Cassandra Clare (3/5 cups – review to come) GR | TBD | Amazon
    • I was a little bit scared in going into this book because everyone told me it was horrible. But, you know what? It wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t the best in the saga but it wasn’t that bad! I liked the fact it was more centred on Simon and Alec and Isabelle had more action scenes, but overall it was only an okay book in the saga. Still, I enjoyed it despite what pretty much everyone said about it! Bring me more!;
  • Labyrinth Lost [Brooklyn Brujas #1] – Zoraida Córdova (4/5 cups – review to come) GR | TBD | Amazon
    • I really enjoyed this book! First, it was about a kind of witches I’ve never actually read anything before. Second, the romance. Third, I really liked Alex!;

And that’s a wrap!!!

Book Haul | July

Book Haul

Hello fellow bookworms!!

Today I’m bringing you my July bookhaul!! Not that I bought that many books this last month but the ones I bought, I’m super excited to show you 🙂 Why?! Because there is one particular book that was worth everything this month!! I’ll get to that in a bit!

Of course, as always, if you have been following me on Snapchat (nerthewitch), Twitter (@LeonorNer) and/or on Instagram (@nerthewitch), you probably know the books I got this month but it’s always different posting it on the blog! As you know, I always share everything with you 😉

Check out the books I got this month:

So, the first books I got this month are second-hand copies and they were cheaper than buying them online or on my local bookstore. By the price of one, I bought two and, even though they are used, they book brand new!

I bought these books through an Instagram account – the person sells used books at a cheaper price. If you are Portuguese, you can follow it here!

  • Harry Potter and the Cursed Child [Harry Potter #8] – J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne & John Tiffany (YES!! I AM FANGIRLING AND CRYING SO HARD!!! I haven’t bought a HP book in nine years – no, I haven’t bought any new editions or the illustrated edition because money is tight! – and this was quite expensive but WHO CARES?! IT’S HARRY POTTER!!! As soon as I was able to place my reserve, I went to my local bookstore and did it! And I have it… in my hands! And it’s beautiful, glorious, precious and I’m crying!!! Since I know I won’t be able to actually see the play, having the script and knowing the story is as close as I can get to be present. And now that WB bought the rights of the play, it’ll give every single one of us that won’t see it live, watch it for real! And yes, I’m freaking out so much I’m actually rambling… okay, I’m off!! *pats book lovingly*);
