August was a really good reading month. I read 7 paperbacks, 1 hardback and 5 ebooks, making a total of 13 books! I'm a bit sad that August is over but I know that next month is coming packed with amazing titles (the first Christmas ones!) and I'm looking forwards to snuggling under a blanket in the sofa with a hot tea in my hand. Now it's time though to have a look at what I read, what I was up to and what I blogged about this past month:
What I read:
Falling by Julie Cohen
The Trouble with Henry and Zoe by Andy Jones
If I Only Had a Duke by Lenora Bell
The House in Quill Court by Charlotte Betts

What I was up to:
We spent the first week of August at my parents' place. They live in the delta of the river Ebre, in the south of Catalonia. It's a beautiful area so we basically spent the week enjoying nature and the beach.
Back in Germany, the weather has been fantastic so we had a few day trips. The best one was to Neuschwanstein Castle. It is famous because the Disney castle was inspired by it and basically because it's stunning. The area around it is just breathtaking and there are many hiking paths.
This past weekend, we visited Karlsruhe and went to a Beer Festival with some friends. It was cool because they had beers from around the world (although I still think Bavarian beer is the best) and there was a lights show that was very impressive.
Big news! I got tickets for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! I was lucky enough to snatch them when they opened the lines for next year. They are for September 2017 but I'm already looking forward to seeing the play after enjoying the script.
What I blogged about:
Mozzarella in Carozza from The Plumberry School by Comfort Food by Cathy Bramley
