September 2015 Wrap-Up

My Life

During the past couple of weeks, I have not really had a life to talk about. I have just been submerged with work, work, and more work. Even my weekends, which I promised myself would be dedicated to blogging, are filling up with leftover work that I was too tired (lazy) to do during the week. It is safe to say that my time management skills have not gotten any better, but I have gotten pretty good at staying up way past my bedtime to finish everything. 

In the rare times when I do not have work, I have been trying to work equally on blog commenting/reading, post writing, and updating social media. I think that I have been doing a pretty decent job (at least in comparison to this time of last year). I promise that I am working my best to still be present in the blogging community despite my massive workload.

Books I Read

Unfortunately, I only got to read 4.5 books this month. But honestly, I am proud that I even finished that many while drowning in endless work.

The Way to Never by O. E. Borini
My Review

The Way To Never (The Never Trilogy #2)

Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor
Review (incoherent raving) on its way

Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3)

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Classic Conversations on its way

The Great Gatsby

Omega by Lizzy Ford
Blog Tour and Review coming soon

Omega (Omega #1)

Best Book of the Month: Dreams of Gods and Monsters 

I have been excited and scared for the time when this series would end, and I am extremely happy to say that it was everything that I could of hoped for. I will not steal the thunder of the upcoming review, but *spoiler alert* it was amazing!

Challenge Updates

Goodreads Challenge: I have read 55 out of my goal of 100 books. I cannot say that I am proud of that number, or that it is possible to make up over 40 books in 3 months. For me, that is just not possible. Right now, I am going to consider it a success if I get to 80 books.

2015 Book Blogger Discussion Post Challenge: I wrote one discussion post this month. 

Quite frankly, I have lost count of how many I have posted this year already, but it is many more than my goal.
