Happy September, everyone! Eek. How is it September?? Probably some of you have already started school, but I am anticipating that next week. Mostly excited, but I’ll miss the extra free time of summer too.
Here is a monthly recap of what my August held in terms of reading, writing, and blogging!
I read eight books this month! Yay for summer vacation! Now we’ll see how few books I read in September…
- I Kissed Dating Goodbye: So, so helpful. Everyone needs to read this.
- Sense and Sensibility: Finally got around to this. Now the only Jane Austen I haven’t read is Persuasion.
- Adventures of Tom Sawyer: Not necessarily a favorite, but I can finally say I read it.
- The Girl of the Woods: So sweet. Check out Grace Livingston Hill if you haven’t and you like old-fashioned romance.
- And Then There Were None: I literally read this in one sitting. Granted, it was a particularly long stretch of time with nothing else to do, but still.
- Jo’s Boys: I love me some Louisa May Alcott. This was a re-read.
- The Princess Spy: So good. The first book I’ve read by Melanie Dickerson. Definitely going to read more!
- Just Ella: This was a re-read of a book I loved the first time around. Still really liked it this time.
I finished the first draft of my current project, For Eternity and a Half!
Before I get too excited, I should probably say that it’s only 6, 899 words and the last scene is as follows:
They were married several months later. El and Adam were crowned king and queen on the same day. Everyone was perfectly happy. Rainbows and butterflies. [need to come back and edit this scene later]
So yeah. I was obviously feeling majorly uninspired on the last day of August. And it needs a ton of editing. But still! I finished!!
We talked about a lot of things on the blog this month. Here are a few of my favorite posts, in case you haven’t seen them:
And here are some posts from other blogs that you should check out:
- Olivia from Fresh Modesty talks about something I had never thought about before and found horrifying and challenging in Please Stop Buying Cheap Clothes.
- We Are Too Comfortable makes me feel very uncomfortable and is a huge wake-up call for all Christians.
- If you aren’t a writer and want to know more about it, check out Schuyler’s post The Book Writing Process (For All Non-Writing Friends).
- Posts like The Horrifying Truth About Abortion make me feel angry and sad and ready to do something.
- On that note, check out 3 Things You Can Do About Planned Parenthood. I found it very encouraging!
- Finally, girls, check out GirlDefined Project Modesty video and e-book. The video is very helpful, and while I don’t have the e-book yet, it probably is too!
Now, a question for you: Which of this month’s books would you like to see reviews for? I will be reviewing two of them sometime in September. Leave a comment and tell me which ones you want me to review!
