March 2019 Wrap-up

Good Morning Everyone,

So we now have three months on the books. This month I was able to finish 11 books and for the first time that I can remember, I went into a new month with nothing on my currently reading shelf. March marked my one year of blogging. Yay!! I am moving kinda slow on my yearly goals but I still have plenty of time to get them done. April I am participating in the O.W.L’s readathon so I am not sure how that reading month will go.

October 2018 Wrap Up

Good Afternoon Everyone! It’s Halloween!

So where I am working now we get x amount of holidays and then we get to choose a holiday to take from a list.  Yep, I take Halloween.

So October seems to have just flown by in the blink of an eye.  Yes, that may be due to me running around like crazy. Really my daughter has to be somewhere after school every day. So that is when I read. If any of you follow me on Instagram you have seen how I spend the non-raining football games. My daughter is in the band so I only have to pay attention during halftime and pre-game.

When I am not running around for that she is also in the orchestra.

String Rreading 2018

So I was looking at what I read in September and October and I could not figure out why my reading had gone down so much from July and August.  Well, I keep needing to remind myself that I am much busier now that school is in full swing. And I should be happy if I just read one book. So that is something that I am working on. Just being happy with what I can accomplish and not focusing on what I didn’t. I know this seems like a simple concept but I am truly my own worst enemy.

But you are not here to hear me ramble about all of that you are here to see what I read this month so here we go!

I finished 10 books this month and DNF’d 2.

Wrap Up

September 2018 Wrap Up

What can I say September was not the greatest month personally.  So much is going on and I finally crashed and broke down.  Honestly we all knew it was going to eventually going to happen there was six months of stuff that I let just keep piling up and you can only push so much stuff down before it all comes bubbling to the surface. I had a months worth of post prepared and I feel that is the only reason I made it through last month. I am hoping to get time to build back up my reserve and get things scheduled before the day they are due once again. On a positive note, I think I am getting better but these first two weeks are going to be crazy. Lots of Doctor appointments for the three of us a Wedding and Homecoming. Oh and I am looking for a job if anyone knows of one 🙂

Now lets get into the books that I read during the month of September!

I finished 7 books during the month of September. I am happy with this even though it is a much smaller amount than the past 2 months. With everything else going on I am honestly surprised I was able to accomplish that.
