Linking up to The Sunday Post hosted by Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. The Sunday Post is a weekly feature where fellow book lovers post updates on life, blog happenings, and their recent book hauls.
What a month! August was full of trips up-north, a girls weekend to Napa, and a few trips to the Minnesota State Fair. Oh, plus I started a new job! I read seven books and DNF’d two; this feels low, but I don’t know when I would have found time to read more. I’m sure there will be plenty of time for books when the snow starts to fly in a few weeks!
I had been planning on a book-buying hiatus in September but decided to wait until October. I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump with so many things going on in August and I don’t want to accidentally discourage myself from reading if something catches my eye! Plus Amazon says I only spent $15 on books in August – not bad in my book and my Kindle is running out of interesting sounding reads!
On the Blog:
I had all these great goals for August that flew out the window! I’m starting to lose momentum for my monthly goals now that I’m posting on a more regular basis (WAHOO!), but there are a few housekeeping things I definitely need to hold myself too:
- Finalize some cornerstone content, including a review guide and the rest of my “About Me” stuff. This is still leftover from June and July and August…. I’m going to get this done in September. Promise?
- Get my graphics together! Canva and I were besties when I started She is Bookish, but some of my regular images could really use a little TLC.

September TBR List
I only read seven books in August and just one of them was on my monthly TBR list (and truth be told, I actually read September, 1!)
