in which the month ends // september + august 2015

INWHICHTHEMONTHENDS3

here’s an up to date wrap up. proud of me yet?
 
i didn’t write an august wrap up for a couple of invalid reasons (procrastination, mostly) and for a couple of valid ones (exhaustion, school, family).
 
unfortunately, i didn’t remember anything in august except it was a month of  “doing nothing” for me. i was far away from my usual goals, didn’t do my habits and my progress in writing my novel was shorter than my pinky finger. i’m not sure how this happened but it did.
 
come september, i still have those negative habits with me. after my birthday (sept 17 anyone??) and MIBF (my post is coming up soon!) i decided to go back to my usual habits and then i became productive again. yaaaaay!
 
anyway, enough talking. here’s what happened in august and september!

christmas booktubeathon wrap up

final

Christmas BooktubeAthon is done! Who didn’t do well?

Me.

To be honest, I’m not too sad. Ariel said that this is a laid back edition and we shouldn’t worry over it too much. So I didn’t. Or at least I’ll tried.

But it’s hard not too. I didn’t even get 100 pages done with my TBR.*sigh*


pages: 323

NOT TOO BAD


books finished:

Okay fine, I didn’t start this on BookTubeAthon (I actually started it probably 2 weeks ago) BUT I FINISHED IT SO IT COUNTS.


challenges:

  • Read a book with red and green on the cover!
  • Read a book you really wanted to read this year!
  • Read a book that was gifted to you!
  • Read 3 books!

conquered: is this even a question


Well, that’s that! I actually thank God for this because it taught me to pick up my book instead of the iPad.

day 3 // christmas booktubeathon 2014

final

BookTubeAthon is a book marathon. It’s called “Booktube” because it started in “Booktube” (or Book Youtube). It was made by the lovely Ariel Bissett. It happens twice a year: The REAL BooktubeAthon – which happens in summer – and Christmas BooktubeAthon. Here’s a video about it and if that’s not enough: their channel. This happens from Dec. 19 to 21. Click here to see my TBR.

Well, I completely failed BookTubeAthon.
