August: Month in Review

Announcements:
The elusive move to WordPress is happening soon, guys! Probably within September, around my birthday I imagine, but maybe a bit later. The design has been approved, so it’s being coded now, and then I have to move all my stuffs and get blogging. Hurrah!

Also, I’m changing up my giveaways again, with a focus on YOU GUYS, the people who actually read my posts and interact with me on my blog. The monthly box giveaway is going away, and I’ll probably be doing one or two giveaways a month shipping from TBD. I’m not telling you how you enter yet, but, like winter, it is coming.

    I hope everything goes well with your move to WordPress!

    Dang, that’s a lot of reviews! I am happy that you had so many positive ones! I am especially glad that you liked the Lumatere Chronicles.

    And yay! to September birthdays! They are the best.

  3. I am excited for your move to WordPressssss. I’m not sure when/if I’ll make the move. I’m scared. And I really like my current blog design. I DON’T KNOW.

    Just the word “wordpress” fills me with dread! I’ve been thinking about moving, but I am very lazy and until blogger does something to completely wreck my blog, I’ll probably stay where I am.

    And it’s nice to see that you had more positive reviews than negative ones – sounds like you had a good month reading-wise. Here’s hoping September’s just as good, if not better.

  5. I really want to pick up Two Boys Kissing, I have read so many good reviews.
    Hopefully next month you wont read any books that you only give a .5 star to! Good luck:)

  6. I’m so excited to see your new design! Will it be green, though? I WILL MISS THIS.

    Bloody How to Train Your Dragon. I’m still scarred from the knowledge you bestowed upon me.

    Excited to see your new design! I need to take the plunge and migrate over to WordPress but *sigh* I’m lazy.
    Oooh.. only 3.5 for All Our Yesterdays? Glad to see a non-raving rating.
