August Wrap-Up

Yesterday was the last day of August and since this is my last post, I was thinking of doing an August Wrap-Up. I also asked if Mari and Kaeley wanted to be included in today's post so today will have my wrap-up as well as Mari's and Kaeley's wrap-up. Let's get started!

So first off is what books we read in August.

6. Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard

Then, there's our favorite book we read in August.

Anelise's Favorite Book
"I picked Into the Dark as my favorite book because I really loved reading this series and this was just not like any other book I've read - in a good way." -Anelise

Mari's Favorite Book
"My favorite book that I read this month was Harry Potter and the Cursed Child because Scorpius is a cinnamon roll that needs to be protected at all costs." -Mari

Kaeley's Favorite Book
"I enjoyed most of these books as they were all enjoyable. My favorite was This Savage Song. I am a huge fan of Victoria Schwab’s writing/worlds/themes. But a close second was Beautiful Broken Things." -Kaeley 

Now on to the last section: our thoughts on this amazing trial run.

Anelise's Thoughts

"I've never blogged before so when I saw that there were sign-ups to be a co-blogger for this blog called Bookwyrming Thoughts, I decided to try it because there was no harm in trying. Now, over a month later, I'm very sad that this is almost over because this was such a fun experience and even if I don't become a permanent co-blogger, I would walk out with new knowledge and experiences. Overall, this was a very enjoyable experience and I hope to be able to continue writing blog posts for Bookwyrming Thoughts!" -Anelise

Mari's Thoughts

"My thoughts on the trial run were that it was amazing to experience something new and different in blogging and it was like putting on a restored old sweater because I haven't blogged in quite a while." -Mari

Kaeley's Thoughts

"I’ve never collaborated on a blog before, but I have written with demanding deadlines and this trial run has taught me I thrive when I have a set schedule. So I’ve really enjoyed the experience of having “assigned” posts, for lack of a better word. I also feel like blogging at two different blogs has helped me push myself analysis wise. My two reviews needed to be fundamentally different from each other and it was difficult to write spoiler-free reviews after writing spoiler ridden reviews. Writing two reviews helped me think more critically about what I was reading, what I liked and what I didn’t like. This trial run has been so fun and I’m really grateful I was able to learn so much and for all the people at Bookwyrming Thoughts and the other trial participants for being patient with all my silly questions and unpunctual posts. Thanks again guys. Best of luck to you in the future." -Kaeley
