Tomorrow is September and for me that marks the end of the summer holidays. My classroom is all set up and looking shiny and new and Monday will be the start of work with those bright eyed and snotty nosed beauties.
I’ve been doing ARC August but I’ve completely sucked at it. At the beginning of the month, my Netgalley percentage was at 66%. I managed to get my percetage up to 72% but then went and requested 3 new books so It’s now sitting at 70%.

Books now sitting on my shelf that look interesting are:
I’ve been a little bit silly and requested the second book without reading the first one, hoping it would be motivation to do so – I do own all the first books, I just haven’t gotten around to them.
