September 2018 Monthly Wrap-Up

Posted October 1, 2018 by Carole in Monthly Wrap-Up / 30 Comments

September 2018
How is it already October?!  It really does seem like each get gets faster and faster and I am not sure that I like it.  September was pretty busy with marching band in full swing.  It is kind of weird to think that it is all coming to a close since this is my daughter’s final year of high school.

I am still not completely back to normal from my surgery at the end of July.  I am starting to think that I am going to have a new normal and need to adjust.

On the reading front, my numbers were down just a bit at 12 books for the month.  I really expected a drop since I always seem to get behind during my daughter’s marching band season.  Of the 12 books, 3 were novella length while one book was over 900 pages so I guess it all evened out in the end.

I am linking this post to the Monthly Wrap-Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

  1. Wow, you read a lot this month. I need to look back and see what I got read – yep, it was one of those months where I didn't track very well!

  2. You're doing pretty well with the challenges. Sorry to hear you aren't feeling as you were before the operation and I hope things get better. It took my dad's pal a few months to be feeling back to normal so it might happen for you yet.

  3. The Months are going by rather quickly and I don't like it. I swear it was just Christmas a few months ago and now it's coming up that way again soon. If I could I would hibernate starting Nov. 1st and not come out till Jan. 2nd. 🙂

  4. I agree. September was here and gone. Bittersweet with marching band and other 'last times' for you and your daughter. 🙂
    Looks like you read quite a variety and yes, a 900 pager totally balances out the shorter ones. 🙂 You're doing great with the Blogger Shame challenge and GoodReads.

    Have a happy October, Carole!

  5. You're doing great with your challenges and ratios. My EW one is 72%, but I am like 87% on NG, and I just read 3 more NG books. I recently read Fight or Flight and really enjoyed it. I hope you do too.

  6. I hope you're feeling better soon. If I hadn't come back from my procedure it would be horrid with being on my feet all day. You read a bunch of amazing books in September. Here's hoping October finds the good ones too! Anne – Books of My Heart

  7. Ah marching band… same thing happening here with color guard. Every weekend in October is a trip somewhere seems like! I think it makes the fall go by faster too. I want to slow things down! Good luck with your marching band season!

    The Little shop of Found Things looks like a fun book. Hope you have a nice week!

  8. At some point our bodies are like, 'Nope, I cannot go back to before'. It is annoying. I fell down the stairs a few weeks ago and 10 years ago I would have bounced right back. Now I am still struggling. So I feel you. Still I hope you might be able to heal a little more over the next few months. 🙂

  9. 12 is still a great reading number! It must be strange to start thinking of everything as lasts school wise… But enjoy it too! I hope you do okay adjusting to a new normal. It can be hard, especially as some things won't be the same as before…
