August has been a slow month for me.
As it’s winter the flu has been going around, of course I had to get the flu, scratch that, my mum, brother and I all got the flu, we each had a week of feeling like shit, one after another.
You’d think because I’m off school sick I’d have done a lot of reading, if you did you’re wrong.
Even though this month has been slow, little homework, no big tests coming up, I somehow managed to get no reading done.
Well I did, I read two books, not even big books.
I am ashamed.

“I had no idea GirlOnline would take off the way it has – I can’t believe I now have 5432 followers, thanks so much! – and the thought of opening up to you all about this is terrifying, but here goes…
Penny has a secret.
Under the alias GirlOnline, she blogs about school dramas, boys, her mad, whirlwind family – and the panic attacks she’s suffered from lately. When things go from bad to worse, her family whisks her away to New York, where she meets the gorgeous, guitar-strumming Noah. Suddenly Penny is falling in love – and capturing every moment of it on her blog.
But Noah has a secret too. One that threatens to ruin Penny’s cover – and her closest friendship – forever.”
I some what enjoyed this book but the writing style wasn’t really something I enjoyed. The beginning of the book was quite boring but it got better towards the end.
I rated it 2.5/5 stars

“Who is the real Margo?
Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew…”
I enjoyed this book, I’m a huge fan of John Green’s work but this wasn’t my favourite. But it was still a fantastic novel. I didn’t get as attached to the characters as I normally do but this book was still a fun read.
I rated it 4.5/5 stars
Hopefully I’ll read more this month.
Thanks for reading.
