August Wrap-Up

August seems to have absolutely flown by! Here’s a few of the things I got up to this month:

  • Matt came home from his 8 week research project, so he’s been home for two visits, once at the beginning of the month and once in the middle
  • Matt, Dad and I went to the George R.R. Martin & Robin Hobb event organised by HarperVoyager
  • I had a few fun catch up with friends including the zoo, dinner and a games night
  • I went to see Guadians of the Galaxy (awesome!)
  • I had some great reading progress as part of ARC August
  • And last but not least….I moved to self-hosted!

    1. Oh I know, September already is just unbelievable! Guardians of the Galaxy was awesome! I was unconvinced about it but I loved it 😀 Thanks, iimproving NetGalley has been a slow process but it’s definitely getting there. You have a great September too 🙂
