THAT’S A WRAP: October 2017

EtheringtonHeaders-That's A Wrap

This wrap-up is slightly belated but it’s here. Hurray. I feel like I’ve been using the ‘I’ve been busy’ excuse a lot recently, and I’m sorry. I won’t use it again. This is the last you’ve heard of it, I promise (until my next post where I apologise for being busy, again). But October has been a great month even if the blogging has been a little irregular.

Reading Summary

This month I’ve read four books. It’s not as many as I would have liked, but I have read a few manuscripts too which technically count!

  • We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • Recipes for Love and Murder by Sally Andrews
  • Fever by Deon Meyer
  • The Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz

Books Bought

I’ve been pretty good this month I have to say!

I left my job in the middle of the month and had a belated birthday present, and that meant I got a few books as gifts which was super lovely.

  • Autumn by Ali Smith
  • On Writing by Stephen King
  • To Esme with Love and Squalor by J D Salinger

Other news

October has been a BIG MONTH for me. I quit my job, I left Liverpool, I moved up to London, I started an internship. I dropped my phone down the toilet (sad, but extremely true). I’ve done a lot of things I wasn’t expecting and that might have meant a quieter reading month, but it’s been busy in all other aspects of my life. I’m not sure I’ll be able to blog as much as I’d like but I’ll definitely try. I’m only hoping that November is as good as this month has been!

EtheringtonHeaders-That's A Wrap

September has definitely turned out to be a very good month. The autumn whether is finally starting to kick in. It definitely seems to be an appropriate season for change, and I have a lot of changes coming my way. Some of those changes might mean less blogging, but I’m hoping if I keep organised then I can still keep on top of everything. Continue reading “THAT’S A WRAP: September 2017”

That’s A Wrap: August 2017

EtheringtonHeaders-That's A Wrap.jpgI’ve been shaking up my blog a little bit recently, playing around with the categories I have, getting rid of some and this is a new one I’ve been thinking about doing for a while now. I’ve seen a lot of monthly wrap up posts on other blogs, and I’ve always thought they were a great way to take stock and reflect on what you’ve put out each month. I’m trying to be more conscientious about my scheduling and what I post when, so I’m hoping this new post will help me keep track of that.
