With kids going back to school and squeezing in last minute holidays, August has been a quite month here at Straight off the Page. Thankfully, we’ve still found time to review some of our recent reads, and share the last of our summer reading lists! We even managed to conduct a couple of interviews and write a seriously geeky article. If you missed any of them, catch up here.

While we’re still slowly easing back into the swing of reviewing again, we do have two fantastic giveaways planned for the end of September. We hope you return to the site to enter!
