Happy October, readers, and welcome to one of my most favoritest months of the year! ;) I love fall, and October, and just yes <3
How was your September?
For me, blogging took a major backseat as life was continually busy, and also our computer crashed…we have a temporary one working right now but since it’s just as old as the previous one…I don’t want to get too attached. So for now I am not committing to any blogging schedule just yet – I haven’t really had time to do so anyway. I do have some reviews coming up because I am sadly behind on those.
We harvested the majority of our garden in September, continued on with the farmer’s market, celebrated the Feast of Tabernacles with a friend, and were kept busy with day-to-day life.
I completed the Instagram book photo challenge I took part in, though with a few hiccups along the way. ^.^
As for books, I read:
And as always I acquired my fair share of books but haven’t had time to photograph them, so….yeah.
This is a very short post, and I always keep hoping for more, but it’s hard to keep up with right now. Maybe soon, right?! ;)
What are you looking forward to in this fine month of October? For me it is the chilly weather, fall colors, my birthday, hot cocoa, and book-reading!
Ah, a rather boring title, but logical. ;)
I find it both crazy and a tad bit thrilling to see July pass by. It actually went quite fast, which brings us one more step closer to fall! ;) And the latter half of this month has actually been manageable weather-wise. The first half was ridiculously hot and humid and yeah. But lately we’ve had some cooler days, which is surprising for July, but I’m not complaining! In fact, one day last week was 65 degrees. Sweatshirt weather. The mornings have been chilly as well. I know August is still to come, and with that more hot hot hot weather, but I’m enjoying this respite for now. ;)
In life updates….
I’m sure other stuff happened this month (in fact I know it did), but I’m moving onto the book section of things because I like books. ;)
These are the ones I read this month:
By clicking on their covers you will be brought to my reviews of the books. :)
And these are the books I acquired:
And let us not forget my new book cozy!
Other posts of this month include….
How was your July? Have you read any of the books I read or received this month? Any recommendations? :)
June was an extremely busy month – I felt that I barely had time to breathe sometimes. Summer began in earnest, though there were a few days of cooler weather tucked within the June days. Not as many as I would like, but then I would gladly have a longer Fall and Winter ;)
The heat really has been sweltering lately, and without air-conditioning…I feel like I’m going to melt away. Haha.
We started selling at our local farmer’s market again once a week, which has been going well, but takes up a lot of our time in prep-work. I’ve added to my necklaces – now in addition to the Pixie Dust and ‘Drink Me’ ones, I have some “Message in a Bottle” necklaces, “Dragon Scales”, and “Wishes”. They look pretty cute if I do so say myself. ;) I need to update the blog site I created for them at some point….
June was just filled with life-stuff, as usual. We got butcher chickens, and they are quickly becoming annoying and ugly. XD We got the garden in, and spent a whole day weeding (I got sunburned, of course), re-fenced the horse pasture (still need to add the wire line but so far the tape keeps Pepper and Adora in), and other life stuff happened.
I was happily introduced to the amazing movie, “The Greatest Showman”, and that has been a near-constant high. ;) It really is a remarkable movie, and probably shouldn’t even get me started on it… ;)
So! Among the busyness and constant running, I managed to actually read a decent amount this month. My sister and I read before bed each night, which helps immensely with that. ;)
If already reviewed, you can click on the covers to go there. :) I will have the remaining reviews posted soon, hopefully!
Added to my collection:
Isn’t that cover of “Anne of Avonlea” stunning? And I found it at a Free Little Library! So cute.
Oh and see that little Paris lamp to the right? I found that at a garage sale and was so thrilled because I’ve been wanting an Eiffel Tower figurine thing and this is perfect. :)
Main Monday Posts from June:
Yeah, I know. I should’ve resisted it. Too easy, right? But I just couldn’t. Not when it is just asking for it….I mean, it’s MAY. ;)
Which is now over. The beginning of the month was fair, temperature wise, but towards the middle and end it turned scorching hot…I’m dreaming of winter. ;)
This month consisted of reading, a visit to a park with family and extended family (wherein I remembered the joys of swinging. So freeing!), yard and garden work, and some more reading in between. Besides the heat, it was enjoyable. :) Not without its trials, but what life is?
The books I read:
The first three you can click on to read my review, the next two have reviews that will be posted soon, same for “Enchanting Nicholette”, and the SMW books – my reviews are on Goodreads. :)
Books added to my already-too-big collection:
Three are review books, one is from Tyndale Rewards (where you can sign up to earn points towards FREE books! <3), a couple were book-swaps, and the rest were garage-sale and library sale finds, besides “Ain’t Misbehavin'” which I purchased on a FB group. :)
Yep. What else can I say than that I love books?
May Post Sum Up:
And a Cover Reveal HERE.
And here’s to June, right? May we survive the heat. ;)
How was your May, readers? Any exciting news to share? Books read? Feel free to comment and we can chat!
The last day of April. It feels like, for me, that this month flew by. I don’t really know why – it was just…busy I suppose. :)
I think we actually got the most snow of the year in the beginning-mid of this month, which is quite funny. At least I think so XD Being the snow-lover that I am, I didn’t mind it at all, though I can’t say that for everyone.
I will give that this nicer weather is enjoyable too though – I wish Summer would be full of temperatures such as Spring, because then I don’t think I’d dread it quite as much. ;) Do you have a favourite season?
My month, bookish-wise was rather small. The books I read were:
“Until We Find Home” and “Julie” I’ve both reviewed, and you can click on their covers to read them. My review for “The Heart Between Us” shall be coming along shortly (secret: I loved this book!), and technically, I am still sort of working my way through The Backcountry Brides Collection – I’ve read 3 of the 8 novella’s so far, but have enjoyed those and look forward to the others! :)
The books that came into my possession this month:
That old copy of “Emily of New Moon” by L. M. Montgomery has 1923 dated inside the cover – so cool! And I found it at a little thrift store for only 50Cents! I was so pleased, to say the least. ^.^
“What A Girl Wants” by Kirstin Billerbeck, “Escape from the Vikings”, and “The Pickwick Papers” were all really cheap thrift-store finds too. “The Theory of Happily Ever After” by Kristin Billerbeck and “The Backcountry Brides” by various authors are both review copies. :)
So, that is my bookish month. :)

And coming up for May is another great Author Interview and Character Introduction!
How was your April, friends?
