October wrap up

This month was a mess and I feel like both this post and my blog in general really show that. I am so sorry you guys. I really hope November is better.

This month I read 12 books and DNF’d one!

There isn’t a whole lot to say here. I didn’t do very many blog or reading related things this month. No readathons or special orders. While I did keep up with my posting schedules, I constantly felt behind on blogging and reading all month. I spent most of the month trying to prep my blog for my trip so that nothing changes for y’all.

However one big thing that happened this month is that we reached over 200 followers on the blog! Thank you all so much for following me and being interested in what I have to share. I am so lucky.

I had stopped posting on instagram because I couldn’t keep up. On October 21st, I took my instagram down entirely. I was too worried about posting and interacting and having great pictures and it just became too much for me to balance right now.

Personal wise this month was a pretty bad month honestly. My stress is so high as we get closer and closer to my wedding. We have finally started packing so I am feeling a little better about that. I can’t wait to leave and finally be married to my love in just eight days!!!

  1. Sorry you’ve had a stressful month, but awesome that you have your wedding coming up! I hope it’s amazing. And good on you for taking down your Insta if it was stressing you out–it’s a decision I think a lot of people wish they would make (and the stress is a large part of why I haven’t made one as well).

      1. Yeah, that’s more what I was referring to. With a personal Instagram, there’s no pressure to post every day or anything like that, and you’re not trying to compete with every single other person posting about the exact same thing as you, and you don’t have to worry about things like props or backdrops. But Bookstagram seems like a crazy place. I follow a couple people, but from my personal account, where I don’t generally post about books!

  2. I’m so sorry October wasn’t a great month for you. Reaching 200 blog followers is so exciting though and I’m proud of you!! Also, reading 12 books is amazing? I can’t wait until I get back to doing that.

    It’s completely okay that you stopped posting on Instagram. I try so hard with that platform and it constantly causes me to feel stressed. I’m impressed that you were able to make the decision to step away and do what’s best for your mental health – those are always hard decisions to make.

    Hopefully November is better for you! It’s wedding month, right?
