Nook Book Wrap Up is my monthly version of The Sunday Post hosted by Kim at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Kim’s Sunday Post is a chance to share news about your blog, books and life. It is also a perfect opportunity to meet bloggers and add more books to your collection.
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week. August flew by so fast and I can’t remember what we did. Obviously, nothing exciting happened (since I can’t remember it), just the usual work, family and school. The weather has been alternating between hot and cool days, which is nice to get a relief from the heat.
Here is news from last month:
- Our internet issues have been resolved (for now – knock on wood). Xfinity gave us a new router which is supposed to be better for our needs. So far it’s working good and I will be able to setup the blog posts I’ve been saving up.
- August was an ok reading month for me. Work has been hectic so at night I was too tired to read. But listening to audiobooks during my commute to work helps to tackle my TBR, otherwise I would never get to read. This gif is how I look when I try to read at night. But usually my Nook falls on my face lol.

We watched Crazy Rich Asians and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, and I loved both movies. Now I need to read both series and I hope they make movies of the next books.
