September 2013: Recap & Wrap-Up!

No, seriously, you guys. Where did September go? I honestly feel like this month FLEW by! (Although I say that every month, right?)

September was another SUPER busy month. I never imagined that moving and owning a house would seriously take up so much more of my time but I just have NOT had the time to read that I usually do! I’m still scrambling to catch up BUT it looks like I’m getting a little closer every day.(Except for the fact that I’m still behind on my GR challenge. Oh well. Whatever at this point haha!)



  • More and more and more home improvements! We haven’t really done much but it’s taking up a lot of time!
  • I GOT CUSTOM MADE BOOKSHELVES. I’m sure many of you saw them on Instagram and Twitter, but here’s a bigger picture for you… I will also be hosting a giveaway in celebration of the bookcase because, well, I need to give some books away and what better reason!!!

  • Number of Books Read In August: 9. Getting better but still behind on my challenge! Hopefully October will be catch-up month.

  • More Amusing Search Terms: “how to make romantic love story books for boyfriend” || “i love the 5th wave” (me too!!) || “leg in a bear trap” + movie” (I actually know which post this led them to!) || “can you make money on goodreads”
  • Most Referrals (Non-Twitter/FB/Wordpress, etc): Bloggiesta, The Librarian Who Doesn’t Say “Shhh“, The Broke and the Bookish, Jenna Does Books
  • Where My Blog Most Often Leads You (Non-Goodreads/Internal Links, etc): Book.Blog.Bake., Literary Lushes, The Cheap Reader

    I know I’ve said it before, but I absolutely LOVE those bookshelves! They are very close to my dream bookshelves in my future house, so YAY for that!

  2. Kristilyn (Reading in Winter)

    I love your new bookshelves!!! How awesome is that? I would love to have that in my home and my husband has even suggested it … I’ll have to ask him again at some point if we can do it. My books would be so happy!

  3. Pamela

    I love your new bookshelves! My husband and I want to line our future dream house with bookshelves in all the rooms. We have a bit of a book problem. 🙂

  4. Stormy

    Oh man, I know I said it on twitter, but I just cannot stop STARING at your new bookshelf! I’m pretty sure if I were you I would have just stared and stared at them for a long while!
