The month which my brain had erased from my calendar is over! How?! I don’t know. We were literally 7 days into August and at least 10 times I’d gone to say it was September. Anyhoo…September is calling along with some fun things!

Tags & Awards
Tiffany @ Read By Tiffany did The Waffle Book Tag
August has been a time of tidying. I spent a week rearranging my bedroom and erm I have yet to finish tidying my bedroom and my office. It’s getting there and I’m slowly getting things more organised and sorted out. I’ve also fallen into a productive mindset and I’m praying it’s sticking around. I also started nearer the end of the month, getting up at 5am. Honestly, it’s pretty nice to get up at 5am and just have some time to myself in the morning and sit outside…in the nice cold to appreciate life.
I’m once again planning away for several things on the blog, mainly I’m going to try and get all my September posts ready and scheduled. If you’ve not noticed yet, then my posts recently don’t have a featured image, this is due to me needing a break from panicking over graphics. I also have plans to revamp the blog…ahem
also there may be a name change we’ll see though So I want to work on trying out some new graphics and see if I like them.
Oh I got my first physical ARC from a publisher (Simon and Schuster) so be sure to stick around for my review on Sorted by Jackson Bird, it’s non-fiction and is a transgender memoir. There’ll also be a giveaway for a copy of Sorted to be won and…the giveaway is International! So even if you don’t live in the US, you are still able to enter! (more on all that in the review post later on in Sept though!)
IFeedly has been a life saver for my blog hopping and I have a post in the works on that and I think that’s it for my August Rewind. I also was volunteering at my library to help out with the kids which was fun and I’ve been doing some #adulting things. aka figuring out interest rates.
Bookending Autumn/Fall 2019
Previously known as Blogoween, this event is pretty special as it marks a year of these events as we started off with the Autumn one. October 1st – 31st is when BEautumn19 kicks off and we’ll be opening sign ups shortly! So if you interested taking part keep your eyes peeled for the announcement post!
Just a reminder that you’re welcome to join this discord server! It’s a place for all book lovers, whether you’re a book blogger, bookstagrammer or booktuber. Hell if you’re just a reader you’re welcome to join, you will need either a twitter or goodreads which can verify you are indeed a reader. (just because we don’t want trolls ruining our bookish fun!)
The whole idea of the server, is to bring the bookish community together. We can also support everyone better, across the platforms which is great, spreading love is so important in this community. Particularly across platforms I feel, you can also make friends too.
At the moment we’re still a smol server, but we truly hope you’ll swing on by and join in the fun. ❤
Rewind The Posts
