Again, I was so so so honored to have been nominated in the Book Blogger Awards, but a HUGE congrats to the winners and of course the other nominees!

Edinburgh’s [International] Book Festival was great, and I would really like to go to again next year, so fingers crossed!

I’m trying to work out train fare for the Jay Kristoff event in Glasgow next week but if I can’t go, well, I’ll just give my ticket to someone who can!

Still waiting on our house, we may get it before I turn 31, but since that’s in October…I mean, maybe not, maybe by the time I’m 40. *Insert a lot of cursing in various langauges here* But I am still hopeful about moving!

So this month I got to see Holly Black for the first time, along with Joanne Harris and Alexander McCall Smith and saw Samantha Shannon a second time!

Also! I got my first two books from Orbit Books UK and I feel so special!!!!! AND

If you all notice, I really love Canongate Books, they’re one of my favorite publishers and they made me their August Blogger of the month!

Thank you so much! This so comprehensive! I dont know how you pull it all together. Looking at it though, it is such an accomplishment to look at the month all together. Congratulations on everything you did, read, wrote and accomplished!

Wow, you sure did read a lot in August!
And you’re moving?! I love moving, even tho it’s kind of really stressful and tiring. I hope you’re able to move before you’re 31 (and almost double my age, way to make you feel old, huh?)
Also, hope you’re able to go to the Jay Kristoff event in Glasgow – and if you do, I’d love to know all about it!!!

How awesome that Canongate recognized your awesomeness and made you blogger of the month!!! Looks like you had a good reading month, too.
