AUGUST 2017 Book Haul, Wrap Up and September TBR


Hello, friends!

It's been a wonderful, long and summery month filled with good family memories... I am a little sad to see it all go! But - the fall season is in my blood! And I am craving it all with what I imagine it would be like to crave coffee in the mornings (I am not a coffee drinker, so I am purely speculating, lol!) 

I love fall! The colors, smells, cooler weather, back-to-school shopping, kiddos going back to school... and this is from someone who also doesn't enjoy pumpkin spice anything, lol! 
I'm also looking forward to cozy days and nights reading all the amazing books that will be released soon... including the ones I've managed to haul this month! And on that note - here are all the books I've read and managed to get throughout August :)
