Now August is finished and the summer has only 3more weeks to grant us some sun and warmth...(not the case today here but hope is still there^^), while september is quite catching my interest with the topic for the paranormal challenge ( September is dragons!!) before i start on those i need to make a little wrap up for August.
So let starts!
August saw the 8th edition of the Bout of books read a thon and i'm glad i participated because it did boost my motivation. So i got some reading done, some drafts for review, some reviews posted ^^ . At the end i was a bit bothered by an infection to eye that made difficult reading or looking at a screen but i had done enough as not to worry.

Parce que je ne peux et ne veux pas oublier mes lecteurs francophones
Only four months left so where i'm in my goals for the divers challenge i've entered so far:
For the sport Romance challenge i've entered 9/12 books so since i got several other books that qualify for this one i've moved to level 2
For the TBR reading Pile 2013 challenge i've entered 40 books already so level 4: 40books, i'm thinking about moving up to the next level but i hesitate
I've read 7/10books so i will try to finish this one even if it had been suspended ( perhaps cancelled)
i aimed for 3 books and entered 5 so success
In this challenge we must read a book with a specific kind of creatures which change each month and until now it's a success, topic for tjhis month was siren/selkie/mermen, interesting topic but i wasn't that inpired either ( perhaps because i counted on a book that never showed up) i osted 5 wityh only two with the right cretaure ... i feel stupid because i had one more but it slipped my mind
Now, officially the event didn't took place, either Booksoulmates were on holiday or prefered to suspend it while waiting for the new version to come to light, anyway i didn't want to stop so i did a little
Send: one to Amber ( one made beforehand yes but so perfect for her^^) and i have one in preparation ( i'm not forgetting you Ruth i just had to take a break for my eyes but i will finish it^^)
Did you have a good August month? Were you a little lazy too? Full of books?
