Month in Review – July 2018

Month in Review – November 2017

As I’ve mentioned in my previous posts, I got a dog this month. So it was a pretty slow reading month. Hopefully I can read about a book a day in December, because I really want to reach my goal of 100 books this year! Here’s my (short) summary of my bookish activity for the month. As per usual, I will be linking up to bookdate.blogspot.com.

Month in Review – October 2017

I think this month was a pretty decent reading month, especially since I did some more traveling. I also spent quite a bit of time on Goodreads, adding to my TBR, which just fires me up to read even more! (I’m not one of those people who keep their TBR very nice and neat… I have 2944 on my list at the moment! And I’m okay with that. :)) Anyways, here’s a summary of my bookish activities for the month. I’ll be linking up to bookdate.blogspot.com, who also inspired the format of this post.
