Good evening! Sorry for being so MIA as of late, but I've barely had time to breathe, let alone take photos! It's great of course, and I absolutely love being back in school but it's so tiring. I still have to finish an assignment tonight ... which I just decided I'm going to change drastically. So yeah. There's that. It's still even better than I could have hoped for and for once school isn't my entirely dreadfulπŸ˜‚

#grimdragon "Greatest hits"- Badass female characters. I'm pretty sure literally everyone chose these babes but can you blame me? Literally everyone of them is a perfect female to look up to. Hermione for her wits and showing that being a nerd isn't too awful, Katniss for showing that it's okay to stand up for your people, Celaena for showing you can be girly and like clothes and make-up AND be a freaking assassin who's feared nationwide at the same time, and do I really have to explain Arya and Danaerys? Didn't think so.
#WatermelanerdsAugust - what app do you check first when you wake up? InstagramπŸ™ˆ

Hello everybody!
I have a poetry analysis due on Wednesday and I think we were allowed to use poems from the lecture for next Wednesday and I really hope so because they're poems by black people and I really, really want to write about thatπŸ˜‚ also, aren't my new slippers the cutest?😍
β€’
Today's #WatermelanerdsAugust was "Why did you select your username"? And really, the answer is simple: I needed a shorter one than the one from my old account, and wanted to include my heritage and luckily this one was availableπŸ˜‚

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰
It's September, and the holiday seasons starts waaay early here. Only in the Philippines! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…
Anyway, make sure to check our site for our book boxes! The tea and temporary tattoo are from our FAERIE MAGIC box.
We are already excited for our Nov-Dec box, which may ship early because our book options are October releases. These books are beautiful and both have bluish tones and flowers! Again, we will offer Special/Signed books, so stay tuned. ☺️

Time to wrap up August! I read 5 books this month which isn't great BUT that's what happens when you finally almost-fully reintegrate yourself back into society and reconnect with people! I'm really happy with the milestones I achieved this month and all the stuff I did with family, friends, and family friends! Going outside instead of burrowing at home is growing on me πŸ˜‚
β€’
So, that's my reflective paragraph of the month. Let's get to the books! In August I read:
β€’ Internet Famous (ebook) - 3/5
β€’ League of American Traitors (review) - 3.5/5
β€’ The Summer of Chasing Mermaids - 3.75/5
β€’ My Unscripted Life - 4/5
β€’ Roar - 4.5/5
Wow that was a nice rating progression!
β€’
#watermelanerdsaugust // first time reads or rereads? I LOVE REREADING. And I'm flabbergasted that I didn't reread anything this month! I did some analytics today and found out that about 40% of what I've read this year has been reread πŸ˜‚

I really need to catch up with Harry Potter... I read Goblet of Fire over Christmas last year, and it seems it's nearly Christmas already. I also need to of course read Cursed Child, and probably Fantastic Beasts...
β€’
Seeing as it's 1st September, we should all pause to reflect on the fact that it's now spring/autumn, that we're nearing the end of the year, and that once again none of us are going to Hogwarts to start classes at today. Hmph. We can always visit via our bookshelves though, which is aaalllmmmoost good enough

I just love the smell of coffee, and breakfast. If you add hints of flowers and fruits from candles, then my day is made.
It has been raining here intermittently, so I'm stuck at home with the kid. I hope the sun will shine tomorrow, as my son needs to be out as well. πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚ Sorry for the lame pun!

Did an almost identical picture to this one happen in the recent past? Yes. But SoC is such a treasured book to me that I reread and reread and reread it, and then I listen to the audiobook, so no shame about another SoC post. No shame!
Day 31 #watermelanerdsaugust: First-Time Reads or Rereads?
Yes to both!

"I'm pretty sure my addiction to reading has just reached a whole new level."
πŸ“š
#bluelovesbookishaugust - August wrap up (part 2!) This is pretty much what I read in the second half of August :) I also read @karolecozzo's other 2 books How To Say I Love You Out Loud and How To Keep Rolling After a Fall, but they didn't make it into the picture because I took this picture on Sunday.
πŸ“š
#watermelanerdsaugust - first time reads or rereads. I like both for different reasons! Everything I read this month was a new read though! (although I did read When It's Real twice...)πŸ“š
REVIEW!
β€’
Left more to be desired: Eliza and Her Monsters. It wasn't what I was expecting, but I also didn't like it a whole lot either. Oops! I felt like it had good intentions and a mediocre plot delivery.
β€’
Surprisingly amazing: all of the Karole Cozzo books! The one pictured, The Truth About Happily Ever After was superrrrr cute and fluffy! My favorite was definitely How to Say I Love You Out Loud. I know most people haven't heard of it, but I was blown away and I'm pretty sure it'll make my top 10 books of the entire year!

Where has August gone? It's the end! And I bought books! Yay!
πŸ“š
This month I bought 7 books and acquired a lot more πŸ˜‚ I actually got all these on the same day at a book sale! But I did spend quite a bit of time in bookstores this month stroking spines but managing not to buy anything because I am OFFICIALLY out of space. Like completely. Sobs.
πŸ“š
Have you read any of these? I picked up the king of attolia even though I haven't read and don't own the first two books in the series because @jennifer_f_santucci says they're so good!! Sooo now I'm on the hunt for matching covers of the first two books πŸ˜‚
πŸ“š
I was SUPER excited to find The Fate of the Tearling!! I loved the first two Tearling books and can't wait to finally see how the story wraps up. This copy doesn't match my editions of the first two because I have U.K. copies soooo I'll probably end up buying the U.K. edition later if I like it!
πŸ“š
#watermelanerdsaugust // new books or used books? Used books! New books are great but I perusing used bookstores and sales for books I want, it feels like a treasure hunt and, when you find what you want, it's SO FULFILLING.

A lot of middle grades again as my work project was still going on. That is all wrapped up now... well the reading aspect, so I probably can't expect this many books to get read next month. πŸ˜‚
πŸ’™
But I am hoping the quality next month is going to be AMAZING. Because there a lot of books I am really looking forward to!
πŸ’™
I am just under half way through Warbringer and LOVING it so far. Leigh always has just the right amount of humor in her books. I have already had some laugh out loud moments. πŸ˜„ I can't wait to binge the rest of it tomorrow!!

August Wrap-Up // #allthebooksaugust
First Time Reads or ReReads? I try to have an audio reread or two sprinkled in with my new reads each month 😊 // #watermelanerdsaugust

Ending this months challenges by returning to the beginning.
πŸ‚
So August was pretty much a failure of a reading month, I barely got through these two books. I'm hoping next month will be better.
πŸ‚
I am proud of myself for making it through a month of 4 different challenges without missing a day though. I really thought I was going to fail in that. Just want to thank all the hosts for coming up with these challenges, they were a lot of fun!

August was an okay reading month, it started out great and then quickly tapered off. 😣

πŸ“±Starlit (beta reader) - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
πŸ“– Heir of Fire (reread) - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
πŸ“± The Suffering Tree (eARC) - ⭐⭐⭐ .5
.

Reviews for both Heir of Fire and The Suffering Tree are up on my blog, link is in my bio. Go check them out to see what I thought! I haven't posted a Starlit review yet but plan to as soon as it's I get the okay 😊
.
.
I also started The Marriage Pact eARC and only made it about 20% through. I'm intrigued but it's not fitting my current mood. I hope to work on it this next week and be finished! I'm also only a couple of chapters into Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb... I was hoping to finish the entire book this month but, ya know, things happen.

The end of August means it's time for another monthly wrap-up 😱 I'm not really sure how time is moving so quickly these days, but at least fall is almost here! 😁
▫️
I've technically read 5.5 books, because I haven't finished All the Light You Cannot See yet. Here are my quick ratings for the rest:
A Stranger in the House 3⭐️
The Lying Game 3⭐️
When You Find Out the World Is Against You 3⭐️
Wonder Woman: Warbringer (ARC) 4⭐️
Jane, Unlimited (ARC) 4⭐️
▫️
Day 31: First-Time Reads or Rereads? #watermelanerdsaugust
I'm not much of a rereader at all, so I choose first-time reads! Even though I had a relatively average reading month, I still think there's nothing as exciting as starting a new story.

What was your favorite read of August? Are you on schedule with your reading goal, if you have one? πŸ€”

I can't believe it is the end of August. Where did that month go??? I swear I blinked and it was gone. 😬 That's okay, I'm ready for fall! Bring on the sweaters, apple cider, gorgeously colored leaves, and pumpkins. So this is my book haul this month. I swear a bunch of them were free. πŸ™ˆ I should go to bookaholics meetings, but I'm pretty sure my TBR would just get longer. πŸ€” Anyway, these are most of the books from the month. Two of them have already made their way in to school. See! I share!! Sometimes.😏 🍁🍎🍁🍎🍁

Day 31 of #watermelanerdsaugust : first time reads or rereads?
Both. I love revisiting old favourites, especially Harry Potter, re-living these adventures and re-entering these worlds feels like coming home ❀ but at the same time, I love exploring new worlds, meeting new characters, going on new adventures so much! It's like finding new places to call home πŸ˜‰
.
.
Qotd: is there anything extraordinary that you would want to do before you die?
I would love to go to bunjee jumping one day! And travel with the Siberia Express! Visit Alaska and see the Aurora Borealis ❀

.

Hi guys! I hope you had a nice last day of August! I'm not feeling too great atm, but I hope a good night's sleep will help ... πŸ™ƒ
