Monthly Wrap-Up: August 2022

Hello! Welcome or welcome back to my blog! How are you doing?

Today I’ll be wrapping up my August, considering the month is over. Now is your last chance to ask me any questions on this post, because I’ll post the answers on Monday, probably!


The only book I finished this month was We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han. It is the third book in the summer I turned pretty series. Despite my higher ratings for the other two books, I did not enjoy this book. I just found it very annoying, and I didn’t like the ending.

Writing updates

Considering the fact that I was traveling during the first half of the month, and I was in sort of a writing slump, I didn’t get a lot of writing done. I worked on Old Hopes and New Beginnings a bit and picked up the second draft of my dystopian book, and I’ve started writing it again! And…guess what? I’ve come up with (yet another) book idea. Now, I really want to write it, but I have to finish one of my other books first. 😣


I have started working on some fall projects!! Yay! I made some decorative pumpkins (here’s my pattern) and some other autumn decor!


Again, I was traveling, so I didn’t run during that time. I did get quite a bit done in the latter part of the month, which was great. I also did a 5k race, which was lots of fun!! My time was a little under 30 minutes, which I think was a pretty good time for me!


Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2022

I didn’t set any August goals, so I’ll just go right into listing my September goals. (I can’t believe it’s September already!!! 😮)

September goals

  • Write 1,000 words every day
  • Practice Spanish lessons every day
  • No phone on Mondays and Fridays (except for texting friends and doing Spanish lessons)
  • Follow schedule
  • Get up early & go to bed early
  • Read five books
  • Post a crochet pattern
  • Drink more water
  • Post twice a week

Important events in August

  • As I have mentioned a lot, I was visiting family during the first half of the month, so that was quite fun!
  • One weekend, my dad and brothers traveled a bit, so my sisters, my mom, and I had such a fun time! We did some shopping, got snacks, and had chick flick movie nights!
  • Our fair happened, which was lots of fun!

Thanks for reading! How was your August? What books did you read? What are your September goals? I’d love to chat in the comments! Everyone take care, and have a good rest of your week and weekend!! Also, please comment if you have any post ideas you’d like to see on my blog!

  1. I read some really good fiction books by Charles Martin- When Crickets Cry is my new favorite book! I also read the left behind series, which was good, but a little slow in parts. What’s your favorite genre to read?

    1. Cool! What are those books about?
      I like a lot of different genres: YA contemporary, historical fiction, fantasy, and dystopian, but my favorite is probably contemporary or historical fiction! What about you?

      1. When crickets cry is about a little girl who has heart problems, and a heart surgeon (who stopped practicing) who meets her. Lol it’s a lot more complicated but spoilers… It’s about second chances and redemption- it’s so well written!

        Left Behind (there’s 12 books!) is about the post apocalyptic world I guess you would say? Like after the Rapture, and the people who are left behind.

        I like Fiction, generally not romance (although a lot of Charles Martin’s books have romance in them as a side arc), historical fiction, and good biographies! Also Christian sci-fi/allegories, like the book of the King series by Jerry B Jenkins.

        Ooh, those are all really good genres! Do you read a lot?

      2. Ooh, that sounds interesting. I’ll have to check it out sometime! Wow, 12 books…that’s a lot! Have you read all of the books in the series?
        Those are good genres, too! I generally just read fiction, but good biographies and autobiographies are also great!
        I love to read, although I haven’t gotten a whole bunch of reading done lately, because I’ve been in sort of a reading slump. Hopefully I’ll get more books read this fall!
