Things I Posted:

Books I Just HAD to Buy…But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf ~ Mid-Year Book Freak Out Tag ~ Mini-Reviews // First Half of August ~ Book Review: The Wrong Mr. Darcy ~ Book Review: Fable

I got a little bit more back on the bandwagon this month. I regret to inform you that this trend will likely not last much longer, at least for a bit haha…


Getting Personal:

Not a lot happened this month, and at the same time a ton happened! I got a new haircut, so I have short and partially blonde hair for the first time in my life! It has taken some getting used to, but I really like it now.

My daughter started virtual pre-school, and it has been simultaneously better and worse than I imagined haha. Just picture trying to get a wiggly 3.5 year old to sit still in front of a screen for three hours a day and you will get an idea of how it is going 😉 I will say, she is making a lot of progress though, which is really great to see.


My September TBR Pile:

Ember Queen by Laura Sebastian

The Orphan of Cemetery Hill by Hester Fox

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

The Lost Book of the White by Cassandra Clare

The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls by Anissa Gray

I am fully aware that this is a ridiculously long TBR list. I am hopeful that I can get to all of these titles, but I’m not holding my breath.


How many books did you read this month? Have you read any of the books I read? Are you participating in any reading challenges? What about the books on my TBR for September? Let me know down in the comments! 

Interested in my last wrap-up? Check it out here!


Love and happy reading,

Author:

Hello!! My name is Whitney, and I love books! I spend a huge amount of time reading (way more time than I should, if we are being perfectly honest!) I am currently in grad school getting my masters in Library Science in hopes of becoming a school librarian. I live in Tennessee with my husband, daughter, and my dogs, who are a total mess and generally are my reading buddies. I will probably share them with you, too. I also love to sing, hike, play The Sims, watch tons of YouTube videos, and drink creamy tea and coffee.
