It’s officially spooky season, though, let’s be real- it’s been spooky season for weeks for me now! I love the fall time (maybe I’m biased because it’s my birthday season), so I’m really excited to be participating in Blogtober this year! It just seems fitting.
I’ve never done Blogtober before, but last Christmas I was successful with Blogmas and posted 25 posts! Hopefully, I can do the same this month (but with 31 posts!).
That’s right! I will be posting every day of October (or at least, I plan to). Life happens sometimes, but I have planned ahead and gotten many posts prepared for the month. So here’s to hoping I can do it!
I’m also going to be using a couple of the prompts that Hâf posted on her page, but most of the posts will be ones that I have decided to do on my own! If you need some Blogtober inspiration, definitely check out her post :)
Today I just wanted to let you know what you can expect from me this month, and just let you know how last month went for me reading-wise.
What to Expect:
- Discussion Posts
I want to make my content as varied as possible this month. I hope that you guys can all find some posts that you enjoy, but don’t feel obligated to like every single one of them- they might not all be relevant to you!
I really do hope you enjoy the content I put out though, and I’m excited to see the feedback. All of those posts are ones I’ve done in the past, but I’m not good at mixing up the content, so I feel like I have many similar posts in a row.
I read a whopping two books this month. That’s right. I was only successful in reading two books. I’m definitely disappointed in myself, but school kept me very busy. For the first two weeks of the month, I was also just trying to fall into a routine of some kind, and once I did that I was able to read a bit more. However, I still only finished two books.
The first one was The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern. I absolutely loved that book, and I’m happy to that I was able to read the ARC before publication date (something I’m guilty of not doing pretty frequently). I wrote a whole review of it that went up a couple of weeks ago, so check it out here if you’re interested in hearing more in-depth thoughts.
The second book was Almost Home by Madisen Kuhn. This is her third poetry collection. I absolutely loved the first two, so when I received this in the mail, I was incredibly grateful. This was such a beautiful collection, and I think Madisen grows so much as a writer with each new poem. There were so many poems I could relate to and ones that just really pulled at my heart. I highly recommend it.
That is all, for today (but I’ll see you tomorrow and the next day and the next day…)! Let me know if you’re doing Blogtober in the comments :)
