Monthly Round Up – August 2018

I love the month of August – the kids are off school, which means I can switch the alarm clock off and have a lie in, the weather has been glorious and working from home means I’ve spent all month topping up my tan and reading and it’s time for our annual Summer holiday which meant uninterrupted reading for at least two weeks and that is exactly what I did.  I read 18 books this month.The books I chose to read this month were made up from books I am part of the blog tours; books I’ve been told I need to read NOW; books I’ve heard so much about my FOMO was kicking in and a few Netgalley ARCS which I wanted to read before publication.

Here’s a brief recap of the 18 books with links to my full reviews:
