August wasn’t too successful reading month when it comes to amount of books I read, but it was pretty awesome when it comes to quality of the books I read.
I found a new all-time-favorite of mine, read a new release by my favorite contemporary ya author, read a book by one of my favorite chick-lit writers, discovered two amazing debut authors and took a part for the blog tour of an author who I appreciate very much.

Hi guys, long time no see! I took some time off blogosphere, as you probably noticed.
The reason for doing so is that my life just got pretty busy and hectic and I felt like I needed a pause from everything.
I thought I’d just take few days off from reading and blogging, so I could recharge my inner batteries.
Few days turned into week and then even more then a week, but the good thing is I am back now and I do feel better, so I guess taking a little pause when it comes to blogging wasn’t a bad idea.
Now, I have some catching up to do. I guess it will take some time to visit all of you guys on your blogs, but it doesn’t matter.
I plan to post on regular basis from now on and I hope to have at least 2 book reviews per week. I also plan to do some tags and other book related posts. Movie Monday will also be back and of course, some giveaways are planned as well.
Ok, now when I said everything that was on my mind here is my
July Wrap Up:
In month of July I read 1 graphic novel, 1 short story and 6 novels.
Short story turned out to be my favorite read of the month.
This is what I read:
Here are the books I collected in July:
In month of June I read only four books, one of them being manga. So basically, I read only three books.
Honestly, I don’t even remember when was the last time I read so few books during one month.
I was pretty bussy, then went on a holiday, and istead of binge reading, I took my time with a book and enjoyed it slowly.
I don’t mind, because I rediscovered the beauty of slow reading.
I am not sure how my reading pace’s going to be this and in a next few months, but I would like to take my time with books so I could fully experience them, even if it means less books read in a month.
This are the books I read in June:

As you may know, this week I participated in Bout of Books read-a-thon for the first time.
To say that I failed complitely would probably be too harsh, so I’ll just say I didn’t do well.
I started this read-a-thon all positive with an aim to read 1000 pages, and I ended up reading only half of that.
I started and finished only one book, and I am also cheating here because to be honest, I read the last two chapters today.
Let’s just hope I’ll do better the next time and move on.
Total number of pages read: 528
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 9th and runs through Sunday, May 15th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 16 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
Bout of Books starts tomorrow, and I decided it’s time for me to participate.
This will be my first time doing Bout of Books, and in order to make it right, I will not only try to read as many pages as I can, but will also try to do all challenges.
Wish me luck, guys! 😀
Because I read so many books at time (that don’t usually happens but somehow I ended up with more then few on my currently-reading pile, I decided to set myself a bit different goal. Instead of trying to reach a number of books, I will try to reach a number of pages.
1000 that is, and I thing that is a pretty decent number for a slow reader like myself.
Here is the brief look on books I will be reading durring Bout of Books Read-a-thon:
Are you participating in this round of Bout of Books Read-a-thon?
If yes, have you set yourself a goal?
