September Wrap Up + October Goals!


Hey Book Bloggians! Welp, I think I was a little more productive this month. At least I'm pretty sure I finished more than one book. 😂 My brain was just dead in August apparently. Let's see if I got it back last month!
Writing:

  • Maaaaybe work on the pirate series?❌Other than adding random stuff to my Pinterest board? Nope.
  • Start thinking about Nanowrimo? ❌Eh, not really. I've been too busy with Blogoween and trying to read.
  • Work on writing workbook my grandma sent me. ❌Haven't even touched it. 😳
  • Work on that bucket list journal I got. ❌Once. 😂
Life:

  • Work on art projects. ✅ A little bit.
  • Finish organizing room and take pictures for a future blog post! ✅
  • Practice driving again before winter!!! ✅ I actually drove on the big highway and had to practice merging and I got up to 70 at one point! 😱 And I drove all the way up to the mountains and back down and had to practice dealing with gravity and switching gears and stuff which was interesting. But I love the mountains and it was such a gorgeous day with all the fall colors and not in the cloud in the sky! It was actually kinda...dare I say...fun? 😦

  • Usher at VPA again! ✅We've only been once so far this year, but we saw Beau Jest, which I think is my favorite play ever now! 😂 It was hilarious.
  • Prioritize more. ✅❌Kinda? I mean, I think I'm doing a little better than last month, but overall I'm still probably failing. 😂
  • FINISH my friend's birthday package and send it! ❌ Yeah...still haven't done it. but I'm hoping to get it done next week sometime. I know, I'm a terrible friend. 😫
  • Paint nails more. ❌Nope, not even once.
  • Watch my TV shows.✅ I started watching Manifest, and it's really good, but I'm still not over not seeing Josh Dallas as Prince Charming! 😭
  • Work on my TBR lists. ✅ Kinda.
Blogging:

  •  Just keep trying to post on time. ✅ Mostly.
  • And try to network and blog hop more. ✅ I joined Blogoween! 😄
Reading: Oh I don't even wanna know. 🙈
  • Romeo Blue by Phoebe Stone❌
  • Salt and Stone by Victoria Scott✅
  • Two Lies and a Spy by Kat Carlton✅
  • The Hunted by Matt De La Peña❌
  • 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher❌I'm finally almost done with it, though. I'm hoping to get it done by tomorrow.
  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo❌I'm 100 pages in now, but I know this is still going to take me a long time to get through. 😂
  • A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews✅
  • Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen✅
  • To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han✅
Hey! I guess I did pretty good! 😄 


A Thousand Perfect Notes


My pick for Best of the Bunch definitely is A Thousand Perfect Notes! I LOVED the characters so much and the romance was actually really cute and I had been dying to read this book for almost a year since I follow the author's blog!
 

Books Read This Month: 9

Books Finished This Month: 5

Total Pages Read: 1,257

Average Rating: 4 stars

 
Writing: 
  • Keep up with my pen pals. I've been writing and doing envelope art with Allison and it's been so fun so far! 😄
  • TRY to start prepping for Nanowrimo! (Including finishing some details for last year's project that I want to work on again, and develop some ideas for characters/settings for the pirate series and The Quiet Girl so I can start outlining them for this year.)
Life:
  • Practice driving
  • Start cooking again?
  • Put together bullet journal pages for Nano
  • Finish and send my friend's birthday package!!!!!!!!!!!
Blogging:
Reading:

Finish:
Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1) Thirteen Reasons Why 
The Hunted (The Living, #2) Romeo Blue (Felicity Bathburn #2)

 I swear, these same four books better get off this list next month. They've been here forever! 😂

Splintered (Splintered, #1)

And then this one is for my book club.

TBR: 

Realistically, I REALLY need to focus on the books I am currently reading and just get them done already. I told myself I'm not allowed to start any new ones until I was finally done with them, but just so I have something to put here; here is what I was supposed to read the past two months. 😂

RevolutionGo Set a Watchman (To Kill a Mockingbird, #2)The Always War  

I Was HerePawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion, #1)



So yeah, not many goals for this month. I think I just need to start telling myself that I can only do what I can do, and stop trying to too many things all at the same time and stressing myself out. 😂
But anyway, how was your September? Are you also doing Blogoween and/or Nanowrimo? Are you busy with school? How's it going? Is anyone else in a gigantic reading slump like I am? Let's chat! ♡

  3. I love reading wrap up posts! AHHH CONGRATULATIONS - it's so scary driving that fast at first, isn't it?? I kinda breathed a sigh of relief when I got to 25 or 35 mph residential areas. :'D
    Aww, I'm so glad you've been having fun with our letters - so have I!
    I don't know about a gigantic reading slump, but I feel like I have way too many books too read and not enough tiiiime. (Welcome to growing up, right? XD)
