Monthly Wrap Up: September 2019

September really was not a great month. It started out okay but the second half just went downhill very quickly. October is likely to be rough too because my son will be having his seventh heart surgery soon. I’ll talk a little more about it in the life section at the end of this post. First though let’s talk about BOOKS!

This probably won’t be a great wrap up and for that I’m really sorry. I am drained of all energy in every way possible but I’m trying.


I haven’t been reading much the past few months and it’s really bumming me out. September only saw me getting through 6 books and I’m just ready for life to calm down a bit so I can play catch up! Of the few I did read this month here are the ones that were 4 or 5 stars:

Monthly Wrap Up: August 2019

August was a whirlwind of busy and it passed by so quickly! It was definitely much better than July and its left me feeling positive going into September.


Somehow I read 8 books in August which is shocking me because it felt like I read about 2? Obviously this wasn’t a great reading month for me (I’m not really happy with anything under 13) but I’m cutting myself a break because I was incredibly busy with everything else. What I did read though was high quality! Here are the ones that were 4 or 5 stars:

Monthly Wrap Up: July 2019

Does anybody else feel like July went by incredibly slowly? It really seems as if July 4 was a lifetime ago. Probably I’m just anxious for August because it’s mine and Elliott’s birthday month! Birthdays are some of my favorite things, and this will be Elliott’s first one not spent in the hospital, so I’m a little extra excited.


MY READING SLUMP IS OVER! Y’all, that was brutal. I think it was a month and a half long? It isn’t the longest slump I’ve ever had, but it was rough. Out of the 19 books I managed to read in July, here are the ones that were 4 or 5 stars:

Monthly Wrap Up: June 2019

My wrap up was supposed to be up yesterday, but I’ve been sick and didn’t get it finished in time. June went by quickly and I really can’t believe the year is already halfway over. I swear it still seems like we should be bundling up to keep warm when instead it’s so hot outside that I start sweating before I even open my door. It’s a bit ridiculous. Bring back my sweater weather, please!


The entire month had me in a huge reading slump, so I was very surprised to see that I read eleven books. I don’t entirely know why I haven’t felt like reading, but I’ve been more into watching Netflix than anything else. Of the books I did read, here are the ones that got four or five stars:

Monthly Wrap Up: May 2019

What. A. Month. May was so ridiculous. It seemed to drag on for forever but also passed really fast? I don’t even know. I’m so glad it’s over and June is here and I’m really crossing my fingers it will be a better month.


I read twelve books in May and the majority of them were really good! Most of the books ended up being read during the week long readathon I participated in. I know why I didn’t read much at the end of the month (I’ll talk about it down below in the life section), but I don’t really know what happened at the beginning. Here are my four and five star books from the month:

Monthly Wrap Up: April 2019

Where the heck did April go?! I swear I didn’t realize it was ending until like two days before the end of the month. Literally just a few days before I had looked at all the books I’d read so far in the month and patted myself on the back and thinking what a great reading month it would be since we still had half a month to go. Clearly I did not have my life together in April.

Monthly Wrap Up: March 2019

Oooh, boy. March was the longest month of the year so far. I kind of thought it would never end? I went through a pretty rough depression spell around the middle of the month, but other than that things were pretty good! Keep reading for a detailed breakdown of how things went.


March was such a good reading month for me! Honestly, this was such a relief after February. I read a total of 22 books, which puts me at 62 for the year, which also means I met my Goodreads reading goal! When I made my reading goal for the year, I honestly thought I would be struggling to finish it, but I’ve been tearing through everything I can get my hands on lately. Here are my 4 and 5 star reads from the month:
