Twas the Night Before Pay Day

This is a new feature hosted by The Reflections of a Bookworm

Twas the Night Before Pay Day is a monthly feature hosted right here that will take place the Wednesday before the Last Friday of each month. After writing up your monthly budget, seeing that it doesn't leave much for new books, ripping it up and starting again: this feature is designed to hold a list of books that you just can't wait to buy. You've been waiting all month and now you can finally get your hands on them! Bills are overrated.

So, my choice of books for August will be:
(1) Spy for the Queen of Scots by Theresa Breslin 
I love the Tudors and the period in general -it's fascinating so I can't wait to see what the author makes of it.

(2) On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves
Having read the synopsis and reviews I'm intrigued about what happens on the island between a tutor and her young pupil who is growing into a man. I can but wonder.

So, that's about all for me but to be honest, reading masses is now a struggle due to writing commitments so I can only do my best. Looking forward to you sharing your book choices also.


  1. Great post, Suzy, here's hoping you find time to enjoy them
    RB :)

  2. Thanks for visiting, RB. Just got another freebie for the Kindle -it was too much to resist. I think I'll have to literally invent time to read at this rate.

    1. Haha I'm sure that it can be done! I think I have about 6 pages of books on my kindle still to read :S It's an addiction, I'm sure

  3. Hi Suzy,
    I've signed up for this new Meme too, so I thought I'd swing by and check out yours and get some tips. (It's my first meme!)
    So while I was here I signed up and I look forward to see what you pick next month too!


  4. Thanks Naomi. Look forward to following your blog.
