And just like that...it's September! Since my birthday is this month, I do have a soft spot for this month, but I'm still a little sad that we're already here. The next few months are going to be crazy with school, revising, conferences, book festivals, birthdays, etc. Hopefully I can find a way to balance everything without going totally nuts!
Overall, August was a very good month. I actually read 7 novels this month, which I still can't believe, so I'm feeling really productive about that.
I also have my reading list picked out for fall--I'm switching over to some suspenseful thriller YAs that I've been putting off. It feels appropriate to read them now...maybe because fall is suspenseful (i.e. stressful) and summer is for happy middle grade books?! Not sure. ;)
And I entered Pitch Wars (a mentorship program) this year. The last time I applied was in 2016 and it was a great experience so I'm excited to apply again. Plus, I have a few friends who applied so it's been fun to go through everything together this time!
Here's my August accountability calendar:
Lots more audiobooks this month as I transitioned back into the school schedule. Hoping to continue the productivity into the fall!
