August review

I started August reading everything put in front of me and because I was off work that meant I read loads. So much so my TBR pile is now pretty much empty. I've therefore spent a fair bit of time twiddling my thumbs or reading stuff (without much enthusiasm I might add. I have to be in the right mood to reread. Turns out this summer not so much)

Book of the Month by James Dawson

It is not secret I love James's books so book of the month for this month should come as no surprise. Very much enjoyed it and everything it stood for with regards to diversity and fluidity of teen sexuality.

Events attended
None. I wanted to get to a couple over the summer but they clashed with other things I had planned.
