Monthly Wrap-Up: September 2021

Howdy do everyone! Are you enjoying Banned Books week? I’m avoiding reading a book that I started, Brandon Sanderson’s The Well of Ascension, by playing massive amounts of Animal Crossing and watching Lucifer.

Nothing wrong with the book, I just have ADHD that reared it’s ugly head this week and focusing on this long of a book seemed like an impossible task, so I just didn’t.

Anyway…on to the wrap up!

WWW Wednesday-Sep 1st: The first post of the month was a little different. It was a WWW Wednesday post! I’m really having fun doing these, you know, when I have books to share.

Every Book I Read (Sorta)-August 2021: I love sharing my monthly reads and stats with you. It makes me happy.

All The Books I Bought In August 2021: Um, I’m not gonna lie, this wasn’t a short list. But it sure was fun purchasing all of them. My pocketbook would disagree with me though.
TTT-Books Guaranteed To Put A Smile On Your Face: I’ve also really been enjoying the TTT Tuesday Meme This was a good list, if I do say so myself.

WWW Wednesday-September 8th: A nice list of what I was reading at the time.

What A Month For New Releases-September 2021: September was a great month for new books. Like, really good.

A Very Ambitious TBR-September 2021: Did I succeed or did I fail? Stay tuned to my “what I read” post in a couple of days to find out.

WWW Wednesday-Sep 15th: What was I reading this week? Click here to find out.

Under The Whispering Door-A Book Review: Did I love it, or did the author’s writing make me want to throw this book across the room? Read the review to learn more. Or, just look at the Instagram photo below.

A Word Of Warning For Holiday Book Shopping: I’m being ominous here, but avoid the shortage and get your pre-orders in now!

TTT-Books On My Fall To Read List: Yes, I made yet another TBR. But this one is for the entire Fall? Let’s see how this mood reader does.

WWW Wednesday-Sep 22nd: The first day of fall has arrived in this WWW Wednesday!

New Releases for October 2021: Due to the potential issues with books this year, I decided to get a jump on the new release lists for the rest of the year, starting with Octobers.

It’s Banned Books Week: I shared with you the book I was reading for Banned Books Week!

November (and December) 2021 New Releases: This post is also due to the potential shortage of books this year, but this time it’s November’s and December’s offerings!

TTT-Books I’d Gladly Throw Into The Ocean: This particular Top Ten Tuesday was a freebie, so I picked a previous topic. Boy was it fun picking ten books I would yeet off a boat.

WWW Wednesday-Sep 29th: I’ve enjoyed managing to do these all month, even if I didn’t stick to the “what will I read next” category as often as I’d like.

It’s always fun to look back at the month and see what I’ve accomplished in blogland. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a cup of tea to drink and some Animal Crossing to play…again.

Monthly Wrap Up-July 2021

Hello and well met! It’s time for the monthly wrap up, where I wrap up my blog posts for the month into one nice, neat place in case you missed one!

Did you miss one? That’s okay. You can always sign up to follow the blog in the bar to the right of the post! That way you don’t miss anything!

Now that I have begged sufficiently for this month, on to the wrap up!

Every Book I Read-June 2021: June was a great reading month for me. I read 8 titles and completed my TBR. If you count DNF’ing one of the books as completing it.

Every Book I Bought in June 2021: I gave up on the book buying ban in May, and June was no exception. I bought a fair few books in June, and my pocket book was angry with me as a result.

Every New Release I Want-June 2021: I love looking up all the new releases from the internets. A point I seem to make every month when I make this post. I also managed to pick up a few of the new releases this month, which is unusual for me, as I normally buy older releases from, say, book outlet.

Two Week Trip TBR: I went away for a fun (and chaotic) two weeks with my mom and my brother’s kids. I made a TBR to satisfy my reading needs during the long drives while we were gone.

Project Hail Mary: A Book Review: In which I reviewed Andy Weir’s latest offering. Check out my spoiler free review here!

Somewhere New: I’m going on a trip! I’m very excited and I know my fellow travelers are as well! Squee!

Bookish T-Shirts: I went online, out of curiosity, and fell down a rabbit hole of book related t-shirts. I was nice enough to take you with me.

For the Wolf-A Book Review: Well look at that! I achieved my goal of writing two book reviews this month. Go me!

WWW Wednesday-July 28th: I tried my hand at the WWW Wednesday meme. I gotta say, I enjoyed it. I may not be able to do it every week, because I am a mood reader, but we shall see!

And there you have it. A comprehensive list of all the blog posts I put up in July! I hope I inspired you to pick up a book this month!

Monthly Wrap Up-June 2021

It’s the end of the month, which means it’s monthly wrap up time! I love having all the posts I’ve done wrapped up in one place. It’s nice to look back at the work I’ve done.

On to the posts!

Every Book I Read-May 2021: This is the monthly post that goes over every book I read in the previous month. It also includes my reading stats for the month. I love looking at my reading stats. I get them from The Storygraph and I absolutely love that website.

Every Book I Bought-May 2021: This particular monthly post was a doosey. I bought a few books during the month of May. And by a few I mean a lot of books. A lot of books.

Every New Release I Want-June 2021: I do this post every month too. I love plumbing the depths of the internet (*coughs* Amazon *coughs*) to find the newest releases I am most excited about.

A Small TBR: I had stopped doing TBR’s for a while because I am a mood reader. In June I decided to do an LGBTQ+ books TBR for myself. You’ll have to stay tuned to see how I did.

Monthly Wrap Up- February 2021

February is over! Between the brutal cold (that Texas wasn’t set up to handle) and our power going out for a few days, I could do without a repeat. Although I did buy this from Build a Bear! Look at the little Dalek! I am such a nerd! Ain’t it great!

December 2020 Wrap Up

Hello everyone! How was your December? Mine was good. Surprisingly busy considering I didn’t even go anywhere. I had a wonderful, and safe, Christmas here at home with the hubs. We missed our family but it was for the best. Also we got to sit around in our PJ’s all day, watch movies, and in the hubs case, build legos.

New Years brought with it more relaxing and some sadness. My uncle very suddenly passed away the morning of New Years Day. He’ll be missed.

And with that depressing note, on to the wrap up.

What I read in November 2020: My reading list for November. This is also when I discovered The Storygraph. Man I love that website.

November 2020 Book Haul: I posted my monthly book haul. Nothing to surprising. I had said I was gonna slow down on the book buying this month. I lied.

What to Read, December TBR: Here you can find my TBR for the month. Spoiler alert, I actually managed it. Sort of. Does it count if you DNF one of the books?

The Autobiography of Santa Claus- A Book Review: I cannot stress enough how much I loved this book. It was so sweet and heart warming.

12 Days of Christmas Book Tag: I did my first book tag! Huzzah! It was themed after the 12 days of Christmas. I enjoyed doing it!

Old Man’s War-A Book Review: I read Old Man’s War by John Scalzi. It was pretty good. Naturally, I wrote a review about it.

The Festive Christmas Book Tag: I actually liked doing this one more than the first one. I think I did better with this one. I’m going to try and do more books tags and see how my answers change!

A Night of Christmas Lights: I shared the time we went to look at the Christmas lights in Grand Prairie, TX. It was a lot of fun!

Book of the Month- A Review: I joined Book of the Month in November and decided to review my experience. Spoiler alert, it was pleasant.

Christmas Book Haul 2020: I received book type gifts for Christmas! So I shared what I got with you, because why not.

2020 Review Round Up: I did a round up of my reviews from this year. Will I do it again next year? I don’t know, it depends on how many books I review.

Books I Did Not Finish in 2020: Pretty much what it says on the tin. It’s all the books I DNF’d in 2020!

And there you go. Everything I posted in December. A few more posts then usual due to the fact that it was the end of the year. Oh well. Just means it was more for me to write. And since I happen to like writing, it works out well!

November 2020 Round Up

Well hello. How are you? Did you have a good Turkey Day? Was your Black Friday shopping fruitful? I hope you got all the good deals.

I don’t really do Black Friday shopping unless its online from my couch. Cyber Monday is my jam.

Happy Thanksgiving: I wrote a very, very short Thanksgiving day post.

This was a good month for blog posts it seems, except for book reviews. I need to do more of those.
