August TBR Pile

So I'm taking a page from About Happy Books and compiling a pile of books to read in June. I'm hoping this will help me get through the giant pile of books in my TBR pile. 

I read almost all of my July books in time. I'm working on the last one right now - The Rumor by Elin Hilderbrand. So I'm pretty impressed with July TBR pile! Best yet!


Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (audiobook from library)
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (audiobook from library)
White Dresses by Mary Pflum Peterson (ARC)
Christa's Luck by Jennifer & Miachael Grais (ARC)
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson (pucrhased)
The Night Sister by Jennifer McMahon (finished copy for review)
The Sisters of Versailles by Sally Christie (ARC)

What's on your reading pile this month?

Bookmarks | CraftedVan

My new obsession is with these amazing bookmarks from craftedvan. I love the cute designs and how whimsical they are. I also adore that they are Canadian! You can check out an amazing interview over at What Sarah Read.



The sloth was for my hubby, the cactus was my first purchase, the shooting star was one I voted on being made recently so i just had to buy one and the Harry Potter bookmark was a last call sale they had on trademarked characters. (They won't be making any more trademarked characters, so this is extra special for me). And the others are magnets I purchased on a whim.

I  have a ton more I'd love to buy. Sea otters, manatees, mermaids, binder clips and so many more!

Which bookmarks would you want to buy? Or do you have ideas of things you'd like to see them make?
