Bookmark Lit Bulletin: August 2014

Hello friends! As you may remember, I introduced the Bookmark Lit Bulletin earlier this month as a mid-month update. Since then, I’ve decided it makes sense to condense my monthly book haul/update posts with the Bookmark Lit Bulletin. Now, you’ll see a post like this on the 15th of the month and on the 30th/31st of the month. The Book Haul piece will only be in the end of the month segment. What a great month of books. Most of my books were rated very high!  My lowest rating was three stars and that was only ONE book. I got so much reading done in August, it’s been amazing. Bout of Books really helped me in that regard. Reading 6 books in 7 days was crazy and so, so fun.  I was able to stop by my favorite used book store, Annie’s Book Stop, up in Wells, Maine, during my (short) family vacation to Kennebunk. I didn’t find as many books as usual, but still managed to walk away with a few! This has been my first full month with this blog and I’m super grateful to the people who started following me. I’ve enjoyed getting to know some of you and hope we can partner on some features in the future. I wish I spent a little more time outside enjoying the summer and going on walks, but my boyfriend and I have just been so lazy! Since we’re moving soon (less than a week!!) to an apartment with a cute […]

Bookmark Lit Bulletin: Mid-August 2014

Hello! I have a new feature here at Bookmark Lit that gives you a mid-month update. Each month, I’ll put out the bulletin with a summary of the books I’ve read, reviews I’ve written, and whatever else has been going on around Bookmark Lit! I’ll post one each month around the 15th, but I could easily increase the frequency depending on how much news there is to share. Without further ado, here’s the first bulletin for the first half of August! You’ll see that it was a VERY good reading month for me – all books were awesome! I can’t help but wonder if I’m too generous with my reviews, but I keep evaluating the books in my head and can’t imagine rating them any lower. All of the books/reviews below earned between 4 and 5 stars. The last bad book I read was September Girls by Bennett Madison [review] and I just so happened to finish that one on July 31st! My favorite books of August definitely have to be the three Stephanie Perkins books – you just can’t beat those. Also, it’s my one month blogiversary! Well, technically yesterday was…but still! I’m proud of myself and impressed. Thank you all for the support xo Tomorrow morning I’ll be headed to one of my favorite places for relaxation – Maine! My grandma lives in Kennebunk and my dad, stepmom, and little sister are already up there. I’m taking work off tomorrow and Tuesday to join them. Luckily it’s only a 2.5 hour ride from […]

July Book Haul

July Book Haul

Here is my first ever Book Haul! I’m excited to share the books I’ve bought through the month of July. Because of my Kindle, and the fact that my financial situation isn’t looking so good, I don’t often buy copies of books like this. I hope I’ll be able to share a Book Haul each month, even if it just ends up being e-books. Well, without further ado, here are the books I’ve purchased in the month of July, where I bought them, and why. Let me know in the comments if you’ve read any of these! Niantic Book Barn in Niantic, CT This is the most amazing used book store. There’s a big barn (where the YA books are located), and a bunch of smaller shacks full of books. Everything has a great price and you could spend hours there. Faerie Wars by Herbie Brennan I remember reading this book a long time time ago. I can’t remember anything about it, but I vividly remember that cover. I have been wanting to get back into some of the faerie-related fantasy books I used to like. This book was only $1 Never Have I Ever (My Life So Far Without a Date) by Katie Heaney Katie Heaney writes a memoir about her life, and how she hasn’t had a second date in her 24 years. Most of the reviews seem pretty positive and the plot summary promises that its laugh-out-loud funny at times. The Purple Emperor by Herbie Brennan Book 2 […]
