A Super-Late August Wrap Up & September Releases! [2016]

It’s almost halfway through September, and we haven’t posted our August Wrap-Up yet… (blame school!). Well, here it is! We’re going to go through all the fun things we did in August (there were a lot!), all the things we posted on our blog, and what we read during the month! Followed by our *most anticipated* September releases–and buckle in, because there are tons on this list!

[Review] The Thousandth Floor By Katharine McGee

#IndigoBookPreview and Frenzy Presents Event Recaps

As you can see, we did quite a bit this month! We voraciously read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, watched the Olympics (who didn’t?!), entered an amazing contest by the name of #PitchWars (and got in!) and attended some amazing events like #IndigoBookPreview at their headquarters in Toronto, as well as the HarperCollins Canada offices! Oh, and on top of that, we got out G2 drivers’ licenses. Woohoo!

In terms of what we actually read… well, let’s just say we didn’t exactly stick to our ARC August TBRs. Let’s take a look at what we did manage to read in the hectic month of August!

Sasha read six books:

  1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (still not sure how to rate this one…) by Jack Thorne
  2. Ruined by Amy Tintera (4/5*)
  3. Trick or Trap by R.L. Stine (3/5*)
  4. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (4 – 4.5/5*)
  5. More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera (4.5/5*)
  6. The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee (4.5/5*)

Sasha’s favourites were a tight tie between More Happy Than Not (so emotional!) and The Thousandth Floor (so good to fill your PLL hangover!). 

Sarena read five books:

  1. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by Jack Thorne
  2. Shiny Broken Pieces by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton (5*)
  3. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi (5*)
  4. Mirror in the Sky by Aditi Khorana (4.5*)
  5. A Torch Against the Night (5*)

Sarena’s favourite book this month was A Torch Against the Night–and her favourite book of 2016 so far! 

And now, onto the SHINY September releases! Many of which have already come out…
