Wrap Up: September 2016

A busy September and good reads.

September was a little crazy. I flew to Nevada to go house hunting, put in an offer, got the offer accepted, packed up our home in Denver, made a big Uhaul move into storage in Nevada, flew back home to prep the Denver house to go on the market, and now I’m back in Nevada playing catch up!! Phew! What a month it has been. We’re thrilled to be so close to closing on our new home soon and it’s very bittersweet to see our home in Denver go on the market. We know it will be just as good to the new family as it was to us and can’t wait to begin our transition into life in Nevada.

Other than that crazy mess called life, I’ve been able to read a little bit here and there. I managed to read 2 comics/graphic novels, 1 poetry collection, and 3 books. I enjoyed everything I read and as you know loved some more than others. If I had to choose I’d say my favorite thing I read that month was Alex + Ada. It was just so surprising and beautiful. So happy to have volume 2 arriving soon and to continue on with it. You can watch my September wrap up below and don’t forget to subscribe because FULL reviews of each are headed your way soon 🙂

Book Haul: August 2016

A book haul FULL of amazing reads just begging to be read!

Some of you may know, my husband and I are making a big life change… we’re boxing up our home in Denver and heading to Reno to be closer to our families. So over the past week I’ve had the task of boxing up some things. The first to go were my books. My husband brought a box up into my office and said hey start packing. I was like yeah okay it should be easy right well it set off an anxiety attack… I couldn’t stand the thought of an empty bookshelf for the month. Turns out though, the TBR stack sitting on the floor… it fills up my almost empty shelf ha! And I thought I’d only need a few boxes. I’m already at two and I have a good feeling I’m going to need a LOT more!

Anyways, over the month of August I’ve been able to add more great reads to the TBR shelf! I’m so excited for these reads. Have you read any of them?
