August 2020 | Wrap-Up

Wow, it has been a while since I wrote one of these wrap-up posts. First off, sorry about that, but with the world going to crap & my aunt dying, I didn’t have the energy to do much reading nor blogging. I’m finally getting to a better state of mind, so I figured it was time to write my wrap-up. I typically wait to make things perfect, but honestly, the world isn’t perfect, and I’m going to be, as my old AIM username said, imperfectly me.

August was a month where I finally started to feel more like myself. I read books that March-June Kristy wouldn’t have been able to read, and I’m pretty dang proud of myself for it! As always, I appreciate you all sticking with me. You all are amazing!

  1. Yay!!! I knew you’d get through that slump and get back to your enthusiastic self. I still consider To Sleep in a Sea of Stars as basically 3 books since it was so long! 🤣

  2. Your stats are always so impressive! I love these posts! Glad your starting to feel like yourself again! 😊

  3. Congratulations on a prolific reading year, and month! I’ve read about half of your yearly total, so far! I did get a little scared when I misread your pages per day count without the decimal point… 😱😅
