Monthly Wrap Up

Monthly Wrap Up September 2021

Fall is finally here! I’m one of those people who love fall, so I’ve been reveling in pumpkin spice coffee and enjoying the cooler weather. September was a really busy month with a lot of Jewish holidays, and that meant a lot of downtime with the family and some good times, even though it always makes me miss my dad. However, the month went by surprisingly quickly, and I made it through a TON of books, including quite a few NetGalley ARCs, which I’m really happy about. 

This year I vowed to focus on my goals for the year. So here we go:

  • I gained some more followers, going from 410 to 426. I’m hoping to reach 450 by the end of the year!
  • Scheduling posts is now a regular habit, and it makes life so much easier. I can’t imagine scrambling last minute to throw together a post anymore.
  • I finally finished a first draft of my WIP! I let it sit for a while, but I think it’s time to self-edit a bit now. Plus, I have a new idea percolating, and I’m thinking of doing NaNo.
  • I’m still dragging my feet on reading the books I own, but I’m getting a lot closer to getting through the pile of books that I have checked out from the library and my ARCs. I’m determined to read some of my owned books this year!
