{Monthly Wrap Up} Month of August 2015

Sunday Post is Hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves is Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews Hey guys! How has your week been? Where the heck has August gone? I can’t wrap my head around the fact that it is almost September. Things have seemed particularly busy lately, so I am always moving on to the next thing. It’s all good stuff so I can’t complain, but it is a lot. haha I am looking forward to the end of September when I will hopefully be able to relax a bit. I haven’t had had time to do a weekly wrap up in a couple of weeks so I have decided to hold my books and do a monthly wrap up. So these are my August books.
