I don’t usually post on a Wednesday, but since I missed Top 5 Tuesday this week, I thought I’d write another post for today instead. I’ve had a very poorly kitten these last few days, so I haven’t really spent that much time on my laptop or reading. I’ve mainly just been keeping an eye on him but thankfully, he’s doing a little better today. To distract myself, I thought that it was about time that I posted my August book haul.
I haven’t book shopped in what feels like a very long time. I splurged at YALC back in July, and since then, I haven’t visited a book shop or browsed online. Despite that, I’ve still managed to add to my TBR – but only because of my subscription boxes and my Kindle. Is it bad that I don’t add my Kindle books to my TBR? I think it’s partly because I don’t phsycically have them on my shelf… maybe I’ll do a blog post on that later.
As I was going to Scotland at the beginning of September, I thought it was time that I added some new books to my Kindle.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
This should come as no surprise to anyone right now because I’m curretly re-reading the series. Instead of hauling my books up to Scotland for the week, I thought it was better to just download them on my Kindle. I have a free trial of Kindle Unlimited so I used that to my advantage!
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Did I Mention I Love You? by Estelle Maskame
This was another book that was free on my Kindle and that was literally the only reason that I downloaded it. I have since finished the book and I will be talking about it in a lot more detail in my September wrap-up – I have a lot of thoughts on it.

The Emperor needs necromancers.
The Ninth Necromancer needs a swordswoman.
Gideon has a sword, some dirty magazines, and no more time for undead bullshit.
Brought up by unfriendly, ossifying nuns, ancient retainers, and countless skeletons, Gideon is ready to abandon a life of servitude and an afterlife as a reanimated corpse. She packs up her sword, her shoes, and her dirty magazines, and prepares to launch her daring escape. But her childhood nemesis won’t set her free without a service.
Harrowhark Nonagesimus, Reverend Daughter of the Ninth House and bone witch extraordinaire, has been summoned into action. The Emperor has invited the heirs to each of his loyal Houses to a deadly trial of wits and skill. If Harrowhark succeeds she will become an immortal, all-powerful servant of the Resurrection, but no necromancer can ascend without their cavalier. Without Gideon’s sword, Harrow will fail, and the Ninth House will die.
Of course, some things are better left dead.
Illumicrate unboxing coming soon…
Vesper Montgomery can summon your worst fear and turn it into a reality—but she’s learned the hard way that it’s an addicting and dangerous power. One wrong move and you could hurt someone you love.
But when she earns a spot in the Tournament of the Unraveling, where competitors battle it out for a chance to rewrite the past, Vesper finally has a shot to reverse the mistakes that have changed her forever. She turns to Sam Hardy, a former MMA fighter who’s also carrying a tragedy he desperately wants to undo. However, helping heal Sam’s heart will mean breaking her own, and the competition forces her to master her powers—powers she has been terrified of since they destroyed her life.
