Monthly Wrap-Up: September and October 2020

Hello everyone! My life was kind of crazy the past two months, and I apologize for being gone for so long. Things have finally settled down for me a bit, so hopefully I will be updating the blog on a more regular basis now. I am going to do a combination wrap-up post for both September and October, especially since I only read three books in October.

I read a total of 8 books in September and 3 books in October. I will talk more about why my count was so low in October in my Getting Personal section below.

I’m going to try to do things slightly differently this year. I am going to keep y’all updated on how my various book challenges are going in each of my monthly wrap-ups.

Let’s get into it!

Mini Reviews // Second Half of August

This year I started writing mini-reviews over on my Instagram whenever I finish a book. It has been a really great way of remembering more about my thoughts on a book and why I gave it the star rating I did. So, I thought it would be good practice to corral those mini-reviews into one place twice a month so that all of you can take a peek at what I’ve been reading and see my thoughts on each book.

I’m a little late for the second half of August, please forgive me! Life is crazy right now!
