August 2019 Wrap-up // 6 Books, Winning a Blog Award (!!!) & Sapphic Saturdays Participation

We’re in the ber months now! I can’t believe it!! 2019 is flying by, but at the same time, January seems like it happened a century ago. Very weird. I’m just desperate for the end of October to come, which brings a week and a half of no school for me. Finally.

I mentioned that I had a bunch of important exams to take a week ago, and I have now gotten all of my results back. I’m pleased with most of them, but a few were very disappointing. Though I’m trying to give myself some leeway since I always take a while to adjust at the beginning of the school year. Plus, I can still make up for these scores. I really hope I can do it.. I don’t know what I’ll do if I don’t…

On a less disappointing note, I won Best New Book Blogger in the 2019 Book Blogger Awards?!! I co-won it with Xandra @ Starry Sky Books, and I couldn’t think of anyone who deserves the award more! I’m just so floored that this little project of mine actually went somewhere? I’ve attempted a lot of things before, but none have stuck because of lack of motivation and/or discouragement. Coincidentally, none of them were centered around books, and I think that’s why this blog has stuck–because reading is a beloved hobby of mine.

I’m also…. really shocked that people voted for me, and still having a hard time believing that I deserved to win. But, as a new book blogger, thank you for giving me a place in the community so early on. I love talking about my opinions with you here, no matter how stressful it can get with school (ughhh), and I plan on continuing to put out content for more months to come!

Congratulations to all the other winners too!! They are all so well-deserving, and I’m so happy that some of my favorite bloggers got the recognition that they deserve.

But, and I cannot reiterate this enough, if you did not get nominated or win an award, please know that you are still phenomenal. Ultimately, these awards are for fun, and I think that at the end of the day, we all had fun.

May, the host of the awards, worked really hard on this event. And I really want to congratulate her, because these awards were so organized! I’m also excited to see what the changes she plans to implement next year will bring. If you have any of your own changes in mind, please consider filling out this feedback form!

But before we move on to books, I have a little announcement: I’m participating in Sapphic Saturday.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_0277.png

Sapphic Saturdays are 24-hour readathons created by my dear friends Arin and Brittany, and the first Sapphic Saturday is set to take place on September 7th! I usually don’t participate in readathons, but seeing as I want to support Arin and Brittany, and the books I plan to read in September are all f/f, I’ve decided that I’m gonna low key participate in this readathon–as in I won’t pressure myself to finish a book during September 7th.

You can learn more about the readathon through reading Arin and Brittany‘s respective announcement posts. Arin’s announcement post also has recommendations if you’re stuck on what to read for the readathon! As for the books I’ll probably be reading on September 7th, I’m currently reading Crier’s War by Nina Varela for a blog tour, and I’ll probably start Colorblind by Siera Maley–a pretty short book–some time soon.

I actually did read a few books from my August TBR, but most were the books that I didn’t get to from my July TBR. I didn’t read any of the e-arcs I planned to read because I decided that I wasn’t interested enough to read them before release date. I did try to read Gideon the Ninth, but I gave up because the text of my e-arc was so. Small!! Even though I made the text as big as it could get, the text size stayed tiny as an ant, and I wasn’t having it, so I deleted the arc. I’m currently reading Crier’s War though!

40864798

I Wanna Be Where You Are by Kristina Forest– I read a few pages of this about three months ago and was overwhelmed by the cuteness. I finally continued reading it this month, but sadly, my initial feelings didn’t last. This wasn’t bad per say, but it was bland and forgettable. I totally get that some books aren’t supposed to change your life, but this couldn’t even be called a comfort read!

Plus, there’s a scene in the book where the two main characters have to share a bed, and it was so underwhelming. I thought you couldn’t go wrong with the there’s only one bed trope, but turns out I was mistaken. 🌟🌟/5

34728667

Children of Blood and Bone (Legacy of Orisha #1) by Tomi Adeyemi– Much like I Wanna Be Where You Are, this was quite forgettable. I don’t remember a ton about it, except that I read it on audio? I didn’t care about the plot, characters or world at all, and at the beginning, the parallels to Avatar: The Last Airbender were extremely jarring. 🌟🌟/5

41219451. sy475

Descendant of the Crane by Joan He– Since this book was part of my 5-star predictions TBR, and I’ve decided to make a separate wrap-up for that, I won’t be talking about it here. For now, I’ll just say that it wasn’t for me. 🌟🌟/5

42201395

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson– I loved this so much!! It’s my favorite book of the year so far, and I’m so happy that my 5-star prediction came true. I’m also doing a full review of this! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5

29917666. sy475

Prom and Other Hazards by Jamie Sullivan– I read this for a blog post I’m brewing that I’m super excited about, and it was so cute!! It’s pretty short–only 35 pages, but the story never felt crammed!

It follows a lesbian named Sam who has had a crush on her bi best friend Tash for a long time, and prom may finally help them realize their feelings for each other. The friends-to-lovers in this book was to die for. I would also highly recommend that you read this book for Sapphic Saturday because it’s so short, and you could easily read it within a 24-hour time span. 🌟🌟🌟/5

30319086. sy475

If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio– I really liked this! I’m so glad that I finally read it because it’s been on my TBR for so long. Though I was a little bothered because the g-slur was dropped in this book and never challenged. Watch out for the full review I’m doing of this. 🌟🌟🌟🌟/5

About two weeks into the month, I decided to completely renovate my blog–new theme, new designs and all that. I managed to do that in the middle of the school year so be proud of me.

The main reason for my renovation was the fact that before, I only had generic featured images. However, having a limited number of featured images to choose from was extremely limiting my content, because some of my posts just didn’t go with any of my featured images. So from now on, I’ll be using stock images with post titles over them for my featured images.

Also, I recently changed the font I’m using in my featured images from a calligraphy style font to big block letters! I feel like this style represents me more, and overall I’m pretty happy with how my blog looks!

As for actual blog posts, I posted ten times this month, just like I did in June and July. (I did warn you that I’m obsessed with consistency.) I’m pretty happy with that number, but I’m trying to cut myself some slack and allow myself to not post three times a week, especially because school can get really stressful.

I posted a lot of discussions and advice posts this month too, which I’m super happy about because I’ve loved reading them for so long, and it was about time that I stopped being scared and wrote some of my own! I’m pretty happy with their reception too.

I’m just sad that I slacked on reviews this month. It’s partly because I wasn’t particularly interested in writing a full review for the books I read, but I plan to post more reviews in September.

August was the first month wherein I actively tried to save all the posts I enjoyed reading, and phew, when I went back and looked at all my saved posts, I was so shocked to see how many I had saved!

It physically pains me that I had to leave some blog posts out, even though I loved and wanted to feature every single one that I saved. But I loved all of the posts I’m gonna share with you today so much, and I hope you give them a click.

And that’s it, friends! I take a long time to write wrap-ups, but they’re my favorite posts to make nonetheless. I still haven’t gotten the format of how I want to do them right. If you stalk me, you can see that no two wrap-ups of mine have ever been formatted similarly.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed reading this post! Please tell me how August went for you in the comments–any big life changes? Favorite books? Least favorite books?

I hope September treats all of you well!

  5. CONGRATS ON THE BEST NEW BLOGGER AWARD!!!!!!#!#!*!!!!! yayyyy i am so happy for you!
    wow okay deleting a book because the text is to small is a big mood. recently, i’ve been trying to get into webtoons, but you can’t really zoom in and it’s been hard to move on honestly.
    and dang i am so sad you didn’t enjoy β€œi wanna be where you are”. the only one bed trope can be underwhelming sometimes, though. i’ve watched the leap year recently and there was a similar scene, but it wasn’t how i wanted it to be at all and it was probably the most disappointing time ever.
    at the moment, i’m reading the secret history, which i think has a similar vibe as to if we were villains, but instead of being obsessed with shakespeare, they’re obsessed with greece. i want to read this one soon and i’m glad you enjoyed it so much!
    hope you have an amazing september, caitlin! ❣️

    1. Thank you, Lais πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

      small text is a big reason why I don’t read comics, mangas, graphic novels, etc. online. I do not want to zoom in every five seconds. But I also don’t want to pay for those books, so yeah.. dilemmas.

      me too :(( everybody else enjoyed it, but once again, I am in the minority. I’m sorry that the scene in the leap year disappointed you though!

      from the synopses and what I’ve heard, they both sound super similar! I think The Secret History is more Adult than If We Were Villains though–there are sex rituals in it, if I’m not mistaken and other graphic stuff, so the reader in me who’s scared of Adult books is making me hesitant to pick The Secret History up. I also picked If We Were Villains up first because it actually has Queer rep haha.

      thanks! You too, Lais!

  6. So so so much congrats again on the blogger award – seriously, you’re so deserving, and I’m so glad that you feel welcomed in so early! This is such a fantastic community. And I keep seeing Sorcery of Thorns pop up, and I’ve been debating whether or not to purchase, and you’ve fully tilted me to the side to purchaseeeeeeee. I enjoyed I Wanna Be Where You Are, but I’m not going to lie the share the bed trope was so bland that I really cannot even remember it happening at all, lol. Hope you have an amazing September!! πŸ™‚

    Ohhhh, I’m actually doing a 24 hour readathon already that weekend so I might as well combine it with Sapphic Saturday! Thanks for mentioning it.

    I didn’t love COBAB all that much either. I thought it was really boring :/ Descendant of the Crane was one of my Five Star Predictions as well, so now I’m worried!

    I much prefer the block letters to the calligraphy, so I love this choice!

    Have a fab September ❀

      YAY!! Let’s participate together! Arin and Brittany are the sweetest, and I would love it if more people appreciated their work and joined their readathon!

      Ahh, it’s always hard to dislike a book that’s hyped. at least the reviews are pretty split with COBAB, so we’re not that alone. I think it could work for some people, but it didn’t for me!

      ahh, I hope your experience goes better than mine did! I still think that the book has merit, but again, it wasn’t for me :”)

      Same!! I feel so freed now! The calligraphy just wasn’t working for me, and I love the vibe that the block letters give! I’m so happy that you agree πŸ’œ
