August Rundown

August was a great month for reading for me. I finished four books – and two of them were over 500 pages (woah). I also made my third trip of the summer to Denver to watch one of my best friends get married, and had a house guest from New Zealand stay with us for nine days. I’d say August was busy, and September’s about to be even crazier!

I thought I’d try a new style of monthly post this month — direct and to the point. This month I wrote a lot on the blog, so instead of rehashing it all, I’ll just point you in the direction of those posts. I hope you enjoy!

Bookish Updates

I read a lot of #backlistbumps this summer and LOVED it. Definitely going to be a new part of my routine – thoughts here.

I read two books from the Reese Witherspoon online book club, and did some digging in to other online book clubs – thoughts here.

I lost my phone for two weeks, and it made me do a lot of #bookstagram soul searching – thoughts here.

I’m starting a real life book club! I’ll write a post on it soon but I’m really excited
