I have made quite a few contributions to other sites this month as well. My coverage of Pretty Little Liars continued until this past week, ending with the summer finale “The Darkest Knight.”  Here are my reviews from this month:

Pretty Little Liars Review: The Wrath of Kahn (Season 7 Episode 9)

I also wrote a couple of features for Tell-Tale TV including one interview and a list of TV Characters We Love to Hate! Check those out here or on my author page:

I also contributed my first post to Fangirlish! This post was all about Bookstagram and cool accounts you should check out. Take a look at that post here:

Last but certainly not least, I contributed a B*tchTape to B*tch Media that included songs about how to take flight on both a physical and mental level. Check it out and listen to the playlist here:

So that wraps up August for me! It’s a pretty productive month if I do say so myself! In the next week or so I have lots of exciting content coming for you that I can’t wait to share with you guys!

Thank you so much for your support and encouragement over the last few months as I started Comma Hangover. It means the world to me and I would love to hear your feedback as to what you want to see more of. 

And don’t forget to tell me what you’ve been up to in the last month!
