August Wrap Up (2017)

36/50 books

August has been a lovely bookish month. Mostly I’ve been writing, but I’ve got back into a good rhythm with reading. I had a wonderful few days in Aberystwyth just reading and writing, mostly on the beach. Reservoir 13 will be on my favourites for the year, and though I haven’t finished it yet, so will Arcadia.
