My Month in Books: August

I decided rather than do a weekly IMM I wanted to create a monthly post that combines the books I receive with a look back on the month. A post to talk about everything that has happened book wise - so any books I receive for review or buy, any bookish events I attend, what I've read, reviewed and so on.

I'm still playing catchup with these posts so here is my Month in Books for August.

Read in August:

I am still on my Contemp kick (will it even end?)  So anyway, my highlights were:

52 Reasons to Hate my Father by Jessica Brody - so so good!  I'm really loving Jessica Brody's books! Also, a proof copy of Unremembered was sent to the bookshop I work in and I LOVED it. It's not out until March 2013 so a bit of a wait but definitely mark it on your wish list!

Easy by Tammara Webber - this was recommended to me by Kerrie @ Read and Repeat and I really loved it!  I'm pleased to hear that Penguin has picked it up and are publishing it in January 2013.

Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar - I had heard so many great things about this book I started to wonder if it could ever live up to my expectations for it, but it really did.  A brilliant book!

You can see (if you so desire!) everything I read in August here.

No events for me this month! But I think I made up for it in books...:D Here are my books for August:  (again a few may be missing from the photos as a result of my major need for more space and having to box up some books:))

Awesome selection as usual Sammee - I really want to come round to your house and raid your shelves LOL. I must buy a copy of Raw Blue - you and Kirsty keep raving about that one! I also really want to buy Easy but I think I'll wait until January & buy the Penguin copy.

Have you read the Noughts & Crosses series? I've only read the first book so really should make an effort to finish that series :o)
