Monthly Recap – October ’14

~Monthly Recap~

This is a new “feature” I’m starting. It’s pretty self explanatory, on the last day of every month, I’ll recap my month and include some other stuff relevant to me over the past month. As I get the hang of this, I’ll include posts from other bloggers, favorite reviews, etc.

I decided to start this new feature when I was viewing Jamie’s blog, The Perpetual Page and saw her feature “Monthly Rewind”. I’ve noticed a lot of other bloggers do monthly recaps as well. As a new blogger, I thought this would be great to track my progress, how I’m doing and other various things in my life. I’m really looking forward to doing this, though I wish I would have started when I first created my blog. Oh well. 🙂

~Things I’ve Been Obsessed With~

The Hunger Games, I only began reading this series a few weeks ago and I still need to read The Mockingjay (I lent it out, silly me), but I love this series.


~Elsewhere on the Web~

I fell back in love with these videos:

~Blogging Participation~

  • I participated in the Suicide and Mental Health Awareness Theme Read at Resistance is Futile.

  • I’m going to participate in the reading one series a month challenge, that Danielle at Love at First Page came up with, which I learned from Lauren’s post at bookmark lit. 🙂 


~Off YA Indulgences~

  • My birthday was on the 11th, I’m now 23 years old.

  • I applied to Barnes and Noble, followed up with several calls and never got a call back about my application. That’s disappointing but not the end of the world.

  • I had an unexpected internet hiatus.

~Next Month~

I hope to read a lot more books than I did this month. I want to review twice as many since this wasn’t a very review filled month, due to my unexpected hiatus. I can’t believe the year’s almost over. I hope everyone has a great next month. ❤
