Monthly Wrap-up | August 2017

Monthly Wrap-up : August 2017

Okay! I know I am saying this again, but is August really finished? Where did the time go? It’s like I am aging really fast πŸ˜€ Nevertheless, this month was kind of Okay for me – no big activities, medium number of reads etc. Overall, a quiet month. I am a day late for posting by monthly wrap-up, but what can I say? Life is being bi*ch πŸ˜€ Let’s see what I concluded this month.

I am not Fast






August Reads

Books Read
Book of the Month



Quote of the Month

This war is going to be full of women who fall in love with men they’ll never see again. All we do is say goodbye over and over.

— Soraya Lane, Wives of War


Books collected

I acquired a few books this month, but sadly I wasn’t able to write a single Stacking the Shelves post. πŸ™ Hopefully, I can write one soon. So, basically, this month was about collecting beautiful editions. Just tell me, aren’t these covers just so gorgeous?



August Posts



Most Popular Post

Top Ten Tuesday #1 | Ten book recommendations for lovers of different genres

As much as you guys enjoyed reading it, I enjoyed writing it. This topic is very close to me as I feel that everyone should try to read in multiple genres.



Post I wished got some more love

Happy Rakshabandhan | Celebrating the love of siblings (5 Literary siblings worth mentioning)

This post was like a first of its own on my blog, like a list kind and I really did research for it. I really wished that it could have got some more love because I really adore all these sibling pairs.

Songs that I listened to most this month

Well, I haven’t created any new playlist in particular because I was being lazy, but I listened to these two songs in particular and they were like on repeat mode πŸ˜€



On the Big Screen

Tv Series

Well, nothing big change in this one either and how that is even possible if one of the greatest and epic show in history was airing? Yes, you guessed it right: Game of Thrones. This season was everything. It just blew my mind. And I don’t know what to do with my life anymore πŸ™ What will I do this coming Monday!!

I need a lot of booze


Orange is the New Black: I have on Season 3 right now. I can’t decide whether I should move on or just stop. I miss Larry and Piper together πŸ™ And I don’t know why, but I hate seeing Alex and Piper together. God, why they are even together?




Babumoshai Bandookbaaz: As always, Nawazuddin Siddiqui was just awesome. I don’t think anyone else can play this kind of character better than him. The first half of the movie was much better while second half just seemed to be dragging the story.

Just one movie this month?? What am I even doing with my life?



In Real Life / Other Things

Ganesh Chaturthi: Ganpati Bappa came to our house and we celebrated with our friends and family and it was glorious πŸ™‚

Ganpati Puja at home


#ARCAugust finished this month and as I expected, I only finished 3 books out of my target of 5. I know, I miserably fail in completing reading challenges.

Nothing more special this month in my life. As I said, it was all so slow.



Things I’m Looking Forward to Next Month

  1. #TheReadingQuest is about to finish in 10 days and I have just completed one book in the challenge. I hope I can complete at least two other books soon.
  2. Still searching for the new job.
  3. Looking to post more on the blog. I have so many Awards and Tag posts pending to be done.
  4. Increase my reading number.
